Kelly’s Outer Banks Restaurant Celebrates 30 Years

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.

Kelly Hospitality Takes the Pressure Off

If you are like most hosts, holiday parties and meals involve a lot of prep work, cooking, standing over a hot stove, trips back and forth to the kitchen and so much more.  By the time the party or day ends, you are so tired, you can hardly stand up.  

But it truly does not have to be that way.  Kelly Hospitality Group can take some of the pressure off of you by planning, preparing and catering some of your favorite meals.  From simple hors d’oeuvres to elegant formal dinners, their goal is to make your life easier.  

Kelly Hospitality Group features three landmark restaurants:  Kelly’s Outer Banks Restaurant and Tavern; Pamlico Jack’s; and, Mako Mike’s, each of which offers divine menus for every style of holiday meal or party.  The staff at the restaurants works hard to make sure they surpass your every expectation.  According to Mike Kelly, owner and President of Kelly Hospitality Group, “all of our restaurants are very well equipped to handle any type of Outer Banks catering.  We pride ourselves on our delicious food and superior customer service.”  If you are familiar with Outer Banks catering, there is a good chance you have had the opportunity to enjoy the delicious food from any one of their restaurants.  

On top of that, because they have been a fixture in the Outer Banks for almost 30 years, you know their community involvement is also second to none.  From sponsoring the Outer Banks Marathon Fun Run to hosting the Kelly’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade to their annual golf tournament, they dive into community endeavors that help local organizations benefitting the residents of the Outer Banks.

Have fun during the holidays and leave the cooking to one of the Kelly Hospitality restaurants.  Not only will you enjoy dining on delicious meals made with the freshest ingredients, you will be able to spend quality time with friends and family doing what everyone does on the Outer Banks….have fun!
