Kelly’s Roast Beef – Revere Beach, Massachusetts

Posted on

Lobster Roll at Kelly's Roast Beef Revere Beach, Massachusetts

Now, I know what you’re thinking, this is a roast beef place, not lobster, which usually violates my rule to stick to places that specialize in the lobster roll or at least seafood.  But, the reviews on this place’s lobster roll were pretty amazing with some even voting it best of Boston, so I needed to try it.  I will say, the view is easily best of Boston and certainly a top contender on lobster rolls with a view.  The location is right on the beach, which I didn’t even know Boston had.  Ken thought it was going to be a sketchy urban beach, but it is really quite beautiful.  We took the roll right across the street and ate overlooking the ocean.  A+ for ambiance.  The lobster roll, not so much.  Don’t get me wrong, it was fine and great for a roast beef place, but it really was only fine.  Anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE salt, a lot.  But somehow this managed to be almost too salty for me to eat.  I think it had something to do with their roll grilling, must grill it in salt.  It was very nicely grilled, just like a grilled cheese.  The meat was all large chunks of claw, lots of spongies that Ginger got.  The meat was really watery, definitely frozen, and not well.  Watery and lacking in flavor.  Ok, but go for the view, not the roll.
