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!

The food is very delicious. However, our 4th visit there to eat was Wednesday August 6, 2014 for dinner around 6pm. We were in Atlantic City celebrating my birthday and I couldn't wait to get back to this restaurant for another awesome meal. The hostess seated us and advised our waiter/waitress would be right with us. We sat at the... More

We vacation in Ocean City every summer and wish there was a Kelsey and Kim's southern cafe there but lucky for us it's only a short drive from OC. Trip adviser guided us to this place 2 years ago and was right on with its ratings. It was our third time there and will be our 4th time next year.... More

My family members have been stopping in this place for years. It is down near the marina, and easy to get to. There is a small parking lot adjacent to the building and some on-street parking as well. It is a very small place, but the comfort food is the best in the city! If you like soul food, then... More

What a great surprise to find Kelsey & Kims in Atlantic City. The atmosphere was great, the food even better and the wait staff really made us feel at home. The best corn bread ever!

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

My wife and I checked out of our hotel and figured we would check this place out before we headed home. 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
