My spouse gave great reviews on the ribs

I had the fish and chips (cod) and they were "ok". Nothing much to mention here. Just that: don't order them. My better half had the full rack of ribs and she said they were the best and meatiest she's ever tasted. They were juicy, meaty, and were done with a dry rub. They even provide a small... read more

This place was ok...pricey and slow service. Food was ok but nothing great. It was my first time eating at one of these restaurants and I would not rush back...

Wanted to catch the game and this was a good spot. Close to my hotel with acceptable bar food. Staff was attentive and got the game I was looking for and made me feel welcome and comfortable.

Was here recently for an informal meeting. Due to the occasion we were unable to order any food off of the menu. Shared a booth and basically had coffee and drinks. The staff were very good, plenty of refills and offers, but never felt rushed or that we were being hurried to move on.

We ordered the supposed steak fajitas but it wasn't steak used. It was made with roast beef...lets get it right.

We were pleasantly surprised to have an excellent lunch for about $10. each. My wife and I had the same entree which was a combination of cream of broccoli soup, half of a turkey sandwich (absolutely stuffed with turkey), and a small salad. You may find a lunch cheaper somewhere else but not this nutritious or tasty. Only slight complaint... More

My husband and I try to go once a month to Kelsey's because we love the food. This particular location is hit and miss on service, though. My go-to meal is the Balsamic Chicken with mashed potatoes. Within the last year, they've taken to adding green onion to the mashed potatoes, which I'm not a huge fan of, but this... More

This is the best part of the menu: the burgers list. It was really funny. We went there during a business trip: the food was good and the service too. Nothing really original, but worked fine for us.

Went to Kelsey's recently for lunch and was surprised to see an all new menu. Disappointingly, some of my favourite items including their BBQ chicken pizza are no more. What a pity.

Kelseys has changed and downsized their menu recently so the selection is not there. They have dropped many good dishes for only so-so dishes. Prices have gone up but no increase in quality. Example of lost quality - they don't use actual nacho chips anymore. Instead they have bland wanton chips that need to be seasoned to have any flavour.
