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

Sweet potato and red velvet waffles, fried fish, greens, honey biscuts, grits, bacon, turkey bacon, home fries, fried and grill chicken, and MORE! I couldn't eat it all, but wanted to lol... Price was $20 for all you could eat. ALL the food was... More

Ive been going for years and it's always amazing. The wings are the best, and the smothered chicken a must.

Food is outstanding, service is fast and staff is friendly. Catfish nuggets and Kelsey's Bang Bang dipping sauce was outstanding. Corn bread was delicious. Kelsey & Kim's have dine an outstanding job. We're a repeat customer who will continue to eat here, never disappointed.

After spending a day shopping at the outlets with my daughter god daughter and girlfriend we were starving. I heard about kelseys restaurant before, known basically for its live music and good food. Since they(Kelsey's ) were booked we decided to go to Kim's. It was crowded when we arrived but the wait to be seated wasn't long. The service... More

A friend of mine found this hidden gem. We actually had done a race that morning and then walked the mile after the race to this place! It was so worth it! The food was really good and everything was seasoned so well. I love their cornbread!! The fried chicken and macaroni and cheese were excellent. The next time I... More

My friend and I stopped in for a late breakfast and the food was great and the coffee plentiful! I had the western omelet which was perfectly cooked and chalked full of great veggies…and the toast…yummo! The waiter was a super sweet gentleman and my only regret is that I didn’t get his name in order to acknowledge how attentive... More

Love this place! They make an amazing chicken gumbo! Pork chops and fried chicken are great too!! The collard greens have just the right amount of spice. I am actually glad that I don't live closer, it would be detrimental to my waist line! This is not a fast food place, service can be slow, but worth waiting for!
