We have eaten at Kelsey's frequently but wanted to celebrate St. Paddy's while our son was in town since he hasn't been here. We went on 3/18 since we knew it would be crazy on 3/17. Glad we had a reservation as it was packed. Service was very good - it can be slow. Our son had the Dubliner &... More

bet this place was hopping on St paddy's day. Evidence was still to be seen. Much larger than expected. Parking was readily available but tight at lunch time. I had the fish and chips. Fish was very good, chips a little greasy. Wife had turkey, brie, apple, bacon sandwich with homemade chips. She thought it was excellent. Service was very... More

Hoped to celebrate St. Pat. Day with the typical corned beef & cabbage supper. So, I nestled up to the bar to order. Well, the corned beef was not so much Prepared as it was Manufactured. It seemingly had been fabricated in some Midwest factory, frozen then shipped to Kelsey's. Granted, the flavor somewhat resembled freshly prepared corned beef, but... More

Kelsey's is a favorite stop especially if you're in the mood for some authentic Irish food like beef stew or Shepherds Pie. They have a variety of other items that you can choose from so everyone can find something good. It has a vibrant bar atmosphere away from the restaurant as you would expect. The service can be spotty, but... More

Didn't realize how well rounded Kelsey's is for a casual night out, or to memorialize loved ones. Just had a fun dinner with family to celebrate a birthday. We enjoyed not one, but two, rounds of raw oysters. My wife loves the Caesar salad with Shrimp, where as, I enjoy the Roasted Beet Salad with a Filet of Blackened Salmon.... More

First time here. Staff was great and patient with a group of cousins talking and laughing all night. Ahi tuna and friend pork appetizers were amazing!! I got the sister Reuben and it was delicious. Will definitely return!

This place is known as a locals hangout, but they offer so much more. They have great bar food, ie wings burgers etc for the sports side. However, they also offer traditional irish food such as corn beef and cabbage on occasion, fish and chips regularly among other finee items. Overall great experience for the local or someone coming through... More

It's not bar food! It's quality food served in a nice atmosphere. Bar seating, outdoor seating, and restaurant tables are each available. The menu has a wide variety of entrees and appetizers. Every one in our party got something different, and everyone enjoyed their food. THE WINGS ARE AWESOME!

Kelsey's Pub has been the "Neighborhood Meeting Place" for over 20 years! A step above pub food, Kelsey's offers it all. Voted area's Best Burgers, great wings, crab cakes, and voted top Corned Beef and Cabbage in the Baltimore Metro Area. 14 TVs and 14 draught beers makes it a great place to enjoy the games. Live music keeps the place hopping after the games stop. Kelsey's also has a separate dining room with a fireplace for when you would like just some quiet time and now a new PRIVATE ROOM available for all occasions. Kelsey's truly has it all, come as a guest and leave as an old friend. Slanite
