A decades-old South Shore restaurant that is known in part for its seafood is getting ready to call it a day.
According to a poster on the Weymouth is Everything Facebook group page, Kelly's Landing in Weymouth will be shutting down on December 20, with a phone call placed to the Bridge Street dining spot confirming this, though it is possible that the place could remain open until December 21. No specific reason has been given for the closure of Kelly's Landing; as soon as we find out why it is closing--and what might be moving into the space--we will post an update here.
An earlier article from the Patriot Ledger mentions that Kelly's Landing first opened in Weymouth in 1979, and that it was named after the now-closed (and unrelated) Kelly's Landing in South Boston. A second location of the restaurant can be found in Fort Lauderdale, FL.
The address for this soon-to-close restaurant in Weymouth is: Kelly's Landing, 159 Bridge Street, Weymouth, MA, 02191.
