Mmmm good!

My friend Judy and I were there for lunch on Monday. We are returning tomorrow (Friday) on our way home. We liked it that much. We were seated in a reasonable amount of time considering we arrived exactly at noon. The wait staff was friendly and accommodating. The food was wonderful. We are... read more

I had a Hunter burger and salad with fries from this good establishment, and the service was top notch. But when it came to my burger I want taste and it seem to need seasoning which I hate to do on my burger. But I will say others rather enjoyed their meal and the portions were large, so no complaints.... More

Was there last night, 8/19. Food and atmosphere was good. The hostess could have been a little more inviting but maybe she was having an off night. To start they have live jazz every night. Our waitress, Krystie, was great! She made up for the delay in the kitchen which was not her fault. Our smothered chops (pork for my... More

The food was very good, our waitress was very friendly, helpful, and attentive. We were there on a night when a band was the entertainment. They were very good but very loud which made it very difficult if not impossible to communicate with the other people at our table. Others at our table were upset by the volume. Overall, my... More

My boyfriend and I tried this place for the first time during our recent stay in AC and it was the best part of my AC experience! I give the place 5 stars even though there wasn't any deserts available, but I will be back for that very soon! The food was incredible and beyond expectations!!!!

My friend and I ordered the same thing, fried chicken, Mac n cheese and collard greens. I usually like to order something different to be able to try something different. My food was absolutely delicious. The portions were big enough to take a doggy bag home. The staff were amazing and very friendly. It seemed like a family owned spot.... More

Went to Kelsey and Kims in April for Sunday Brunch following a Bachelorette Weekend in AC. Our group of 10 was promptly seated by the freindliest host i have ever met. She reminded me of Shirley Ceaser and hugged everyone of us as we came in. The food was out of sight...red velvet waffles, fried chicken, shrimp and grits, omelet... More
