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!

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
