We had a very good time there
mar 2020
I took the family out for crabbing and then had lunch there. We didn’t rent a boat, just stayed on the dock and had a very good time. The next time we will try to rent one. All of the staff at the pier was very friendly and helpful.

Mean and rude
lip 2020 • Dla rodziny
This was my family’s first time camping in this place and it will definitely be the last!! Whoever the guy was there manning the desk 7/31 9am was super mean and rude! He was probably the owner. Too early to be rude at 9am!!! Explaining to him what I needed but was getting absurd response. If only we haven’t pack for camping and if there was another place available we wouldn’t have stayed here. The plan of staying 3 nights turned to just an overnight camping. He ruined our first and probably the only summer outing my family will ever have this year. Don’t go here. Go to neighboring marina. Mean and rude!!! Uneducated!

Clamming maiden voyage.
lip 2020
My husband and I with our son, daughter-in-law, 7 and 3 year old grandsons went clamming and then had lunch. We didn’t have any experience crabbing but had a good time. It is colder on the boat than expected due to the breeze so make sure to have a jacket and wear shoes that you don’t mind getting wet. The time allowed is the perfect amount of time for being on boat that they give you to go out on your own. All of the staff is very friendly and helpful.

RUDE AND ARROGANT OWNER WHO BERATES SOUTHERNERS!
lip 2020
Owner was rude and condescending to me and my family. I am from the south and my wife is from the Philippines. He mentioned that since I was from Georgia that he would have to "talk slow" for me to understand him. I've never had anyone who is supposed to be a professional business owner talk to me in such an arrogant tone, especially in front of my wife and daughter. I guess he thinks that people from the south are idiot hicks with no intellect. My wife and I have three college degrees between us and have visited all of the lower 48 states and have traveled abroad extensively. Even the woman who measured our crabs gave us a flippant attitude. The only courteous people were the guys at the dock. If you are from the south then spare yourself the arrogance and insults and go somewhere else.

The building itself is neat. The staff is fast and nice. Crazy big mimosas. Beautiful views. Great place to watch the game.

Such a fun family experience!
lis 2019 • Dla rodziny
We really enjoyed our time at Kelly’s Marina! Our 4 and 6 year old loved seeing the crabs, a seal, all the cats, and the sweet old dog there! While we were waiting on our crab pots, we got cozy by the fire and got to watch a train go right by the marina! Our kids were so excited for all the fun photo boards they could take pictures with. Great experience!

not your usual restaurant
paź 2019
When we arrived we were confused. The gent at the crab pot said this wasn't a restaurant (we thought the building a little bit away was). There's a board that states the prices of crabs, oysters, etc. If you want to eat there, they will provide paper plates, napkins, utensils, and hot sauce. You may buy melted butter, cocktail sauce, lemons, drinks, etc. at the store. You also pay for your seafood there.

The person at the crab pots puts your name on a white board with the time your order will be ready. There are only outdoor picnic tables. It was a beautiful day so we were able to eat outdoors while watching people crabbing on the piers, and the birds fishing. The cats are really friendly. When our order was ready, our name was called and everything was served in a large stainless steel pan (like the ones caters use to keep food warm). It was great!

We ordered 2 dungeness crabs, and dozen oysters (they steam them, don't serve them raw). They were the sweetest crabs I've had in a while. The oysters were perfect. We ended up ordering another dozen after we finish the first order.

They will rent you crabbing gear, and give you instructions on what to do. They also rent boats. I think they have a campground too. There were only 2 people working. Both were friendly, and helpful. I'll go back the next time I'm up that way.

Very unfriendly place
paź 2019 • Pary
We just were astonished how this could work. As we arrived there were just some guests from Germany A very unfriendly welcome. That's very unprofessional. From the beginning of our stay your are feeling such a strange atmosphere. You are staying in line and nobody really cares about the customers. The clerk just stood 10 feet away serving other restaurants visitors. Overall a really good internet marketing but that"s all. Maybe they have no employees, several other guests were also very unsatisfied and left the place.

So very sorry for your experience ~ you are correct, we were very understaffed due to illness of two employees and the whole marina/campground was being run by just two people. It was a busy day with very nice weather and running back and forth to manage both the store and the cooker was stressful at best. Not usually the greeting that you receive when you arrive at Kelly's :( I am sure that you will not have a chance to "give us another try" but I do apologize that you left with disappointment from your stay.

Wonderful children's experience that money cannot buy!
paź 2019
Friendly Staff with smiling guests all around. Crabbing by the dock on a beautiful calm water. Throughout the activity, 3 kids never even looked at their phones other than taking photos. Driving from Portland (approx. 1.5 hr) was well worth it (do not take the hwy 53. google map will take you to the winding road). Overall it was the experience our life time that kids will never forget.

This is EXACTLY what we like to hear - keep those kids engaged with nature and they will appreciate their surroundings that much more!! And I agree - DON'T TAKE HWY 53 - WAY TOO WINDING AND CURVY!!!
