Kelly’s Outer Banks Restaurant Celebrates 30 Years

June 18, 2015, marked the 30th year in business for Kelly’s Outer Banks Restaurant. Mike and Willo Kelly gave a shout-out and heartfelt thanks to long time employees: Glenda Morse, Mary Ann Newman, Vickie Downs, Charlie Edmond and Toni Pfeiffer (better known as the Biscuit Lady). To commemorate the anniversary, Mike commissioned local sculptor, Louie Hoppe, for a unique piece of art.  Named OBX Catch, this large metal-crafted shrimp epitomizes Kelly’s dedication and use of fresh caught, locally harvested seafood. The shrimp is on display in the front yard at Kelly’s.
