My coworker highly recommend this place for good food and he was right.My wife and I went to the Plesantville location for take out and were greeted very warmly by a gentleman who prepared an awesome meal of ribs and pork chops. We will definitely eat at Kelsey& Kim's again. They have the best soul food around and several locations,... More

We walked in and were told they were only serving a brunch buffet for $20 a person and I was back n forth because I never ate there and I didn't wanna eat THAT much food. Anyway, we stayed... More

I bought into the great reviews on yelp and thought we would try it out after a night on the town. I would say the service was the worst I have ever had however it was more like non-existent. We were sat and did not get greeted until ten minutes later. We put our drinks in at that time, two... More

I totally loved this place. They had live music, which was awesome. We were welcomed, greeted & accommodated the moment we walked in and the owner himself even came out from the kitchen to personally greet us. The food was beyond delucious and I was so satisfied that I went back the following day. I had no reservations and they... More

After hearing positive reviews of this establishment, a few friends and I decided to give it a try. We had 6 meals. Only one person in our party was satisfied with her meal and partly because she didn't want to complain. As a vegetarian, there were not many options for me (which I knew ahead of time) so after inquiring... More

Outstanding from start to finish, we are so glad we happened upon this restaurant. Our server was polite and very efficient. We began with an 3 choice appetizer which included a mexican burrito, fish taco and coconut shrimp. The appetizer was beautifully presented and very good. Our platters consisted of broiled crab cakes for one and fried catfish for the... More

We went with the intention of eating down home southern cooking.The staff made us wait to be seated even though there were tables open.I and my friends are openly LGBT and sat and waited for a drink order to be taken for 30 minutes among grumbles and dirty looks.All of the awkwardness would have been worth it if the food...
