I visited this restaurant in February 2014 while visiting the Atlantic city area with a friend for the weekend. I ordered the fried chicken wings, Mac & cheese and collard greens. Everything was delicious but the collard greens were different from what I am used to because it had a sweet taste to it. While ordering we were asked if... More

We went to Kelsey & Kim twice during our stay in AC. The breakfast was good, however it took quite a while to be seated and served. The place is small and it took 20 min and better just to be seated (mind you there were empty tables avail). Then another 30 min or more before we was served. Both... More

We had a party of 15 and everyone was extremely satisfied with the meals. Fried chicken, whiting, salmon cakes, cheese grits, waffles, shrimp, eggs, french toast. Oh I almost forgot the key lime pie to go. Yummie! Juan and the rest of the staff were excellent. We were in town for the AC Spotlight basketball tournament and came here in... More

from Juan, our server to the great meal we experienced in a wonderful, friendly atmosphere, we have no complaints. Karen who waited on us the 2nd time we went there was also very sweet. Big portions, nice presentation and great fresh coffee. oh, damn good grits too.

Check your cutlery and drink glasses for previous food particles left and lipstick stains. Make sure Karen is not your server. She is very slow, and has no personality. Make sure to have Juan as your server. Food is okay, not the best or "to die for" Nice array for both lunch or breakfast. Food is served within 15 minutes... More

A group of us were out for a bridal shower, the place was really crowded people standing all over the place, the table we sat at was next to a pipe that was leaking, that was disgusting, ok most of the party was there at 6pm and the others came at 6:30pm, we placed our order off of the menu...

It's my birthday!! Started off my birthday morning with breakfast at "Kelsey and Kim's Southern Cafe". If I could get the hallelujah chorus plugged in right now, that would sum up my review! Awesome! Our server Juan, was fantastic! He was humorous and knowledgable at the same time. I knew what I wanted as soon as I opened the menu,... More

I went to Kelsey & Kim's a couple weeks ago on Sunday March 16th for lunch, unfortunately I had just missed the Sunday brunch but the food was still amazing. We both had chicken and waffles which were fabulous. Our server was excellent (sorry I can't remember his name) but he was very attentive and nice. My drink slid off... More

If you are looking to get some serious soul food, you need to stop in at Kelsey & Kim's. This is like sitting down at gradma's table on a Sunday afternoon. Fried Chicken and Fish, Collards, Mac&Cheese, Cornbread and every other southern style entree. Then to top it all off, they have an array of delicious dessert selections. The all... More

My husband and I had dinner during a weeknight. The staff was extremely courteous and helpful. We ordered the chicken gumbo which was hearty and delicous. Also, we ordered a side of corn bread which was buttery and had the texture of poundcake and did not need any butter. My husband ordered the waffles and fried chicken and I order... More
