Fodor's Review

In a handsome 1906 firehouse across from the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, McKelvie's is that rare find that hits the sweet spot between upmarket and down-home. Though all the menu mainstays are here, from oysters Rockefeller to surf and turf, the best bets are the contemporary twists on seafood classics, among them Caribbean-inspired calamari, lobster pot stickers, and Thai shrimp pasta. Although the restaurant has been in business for more than 25 years, its look is as fresh as the ingredients used here, and the service is always friendly.
