Based on trip advisor our group of nine decided to try Kelsey and Kim's. The food was delicious... It was some of the best soul food we've ever had! We all ordered something different but everything was excellent. The service was okay, but not particularly friendly or attentive. And it took a long time before our food was served. Still,... More

Always a down home experience when I walk though the doors of this small 10 table restaurant. Even though I know they have expanded to several other location, this is still my favorite. And worth me driving up from Baltimore Maryland for a few days. Tonight I took on the turkey chops smothered, my sides were mac and cheese and... More

This was my first visit to Kelsey & Kim's and it was a great experience! It's a BYOB so we picked up a nice bottle of Cabernet to enjoy with our meal. Free on-street parking was easy. The dining room is comfortable, perfect for either a family dinner or a romantic dinner for two. Although K & K's does a... More

Second day I had the pork chops and gravy.. Biggest damn chops I have seen. Could only eat one with my meal. Our servers were great each... More

Just plain ole good! The cornbread was a little too sweet but it was balanced by the fried chicken. It wasn't salty and that was perfectly balanced on the waffle which wasn't too sweet...if at all. The waffle had deep ridges that pooled the syrup nicely. The combined flavor of the chicken and waffle came together nicely. What I appreciated... More

I loved the food and the people at this hidden gem. The service was excellent. Breakfast was over but the waitress was adamant about accommodating me with a breakfast dish. I would have taken pics but the food was gone before I remembered to take pictures. I didn't really care for the fried chicken as I prefer mine with a... More

We were in a time-share just about around the corner, and are we sorry we did not find Kelsey & Kim's sooner. We had breakfast on the morning we left. We both ordered the breakfast special with eggs and pancakes. I have never had such fresh, perfectly done eggs. There is no way the home fries came out of any... More

I am from Atlanta, Georgia and I can say that I completely forgot that I was in Atlantic City, NJ. With all of the depressing news that you hear about Atlantic City, I was so happy to find this restaurant. I decided to do take out instead of dining in. When I walked in the band was playing some really... More

We went to this restaurant and did not find it as good as other reviewers. Our server was good but our food was poor. The crab cake appetizer was good. My wife had the pork ribs dry and the had very little flavor and it was tough (not falling off the bone). I had the Jumbo Fried shrimp where the... More

We were in Atlantic City on Aug. 9, 2014 and found this restaurant by accident. It was in the hotel directory. Looked it up online and decided to give it a try. The food was excellent!! So much food we had to get a take out box. By the time the fish arrived, I had eaten half of the cornbread.... More
