First there were ten of us that went. We arrived an tables were not ready for us even though it had been planned ahead. Once a table was set up for us it was crammed and in a walkway four of us could not comfortably get up from the table, or in to sit down without moving the tables out... More

We visited on a Saturday night. It was still early so it wasn't busy. I had wings & my wife had chicken fingers, both meals tasted amazing and would definitely order again! Our waitress, Celeste, was super friendly. We would definitely return. Only issue was with their payment terminals - 2 different terminals wouldn't take my credit card (it was... More

Go there every weekend after another successful work week finished...so guess to be considered regulars since the bar staff know what we want to drink and appetizers when we arrive, the staff there is always friendly and love to chat with... always a great meal, hot and tasty...definitely returning next week

We went to Kelsey's after going to the movies Monday night. Service was great and we decided on 3 appetizers to share. The deep fried dill pickles were awful, the pickle was the size of a quarter in each piece, all coating. Tried the quesadilla and it was bland and mostly cheese. Not worth the price for sure, avoid this... More

Went to Kelsey's for dinner on a Friday night. It was only half full and there were people coming. But it was certainly not full. I'm going to comment on the food, the cost and the service separately . The service was slow and too intrusive . There were only three of us when usually there are at least 10... More

Kelsey's just launched their 'Build Your Own Burger' menu option, and it's pretty awesome! The bar area of Kelsey's has a great atmosphere, nice bar, lots of TV's. Service was excellent and so was the burger. Here are the toppings I had... - Ace bun - 2 patties - Bacon - Cheddar cheese - Onion rings - Potato hash brown... More

It's in our neighborhood but haven't been for years. Saw their new menu and thought it was time to visit and glad we did. Ate in the bar, which is nice and cozy. Server Leanna was prompt, efficient and friendly. I had the bacon Mac and cheese with a Caesar salad. Nice flavor and good quantities. The Mac and cheese... More

Menu has changed since our last visit but still had a d cent variety. Our waitress was Valerie and I must say she did a very good... More

Stopped by here for dinner. Servers great. Seating, love the booth. Fish and chips, OK. Love the coating, but perhaps too salty. Cod fish used had no flavour. All in the batter. Fries, OK... I had gravey also, it needed to be warmer not Luke warm. Coleslaw great. Will I return, of course. Kelsey's is about much more.
