I visited Kelsey's with my mom and her friend. Our waiter, David told us we would love the food. We thought he was bluffing. Upon arrival of our entree, we were quite impressed. The food is tasty,the portions are enough for two or three meals. David was quite friendly and so was the manager. I would definitely eat there again.... More

It was a Friday night. The live Jazz band added the touch of authenticity to compliment our traditional but superior soul food. We also met a vibrant man named Dorian who was extremely friendly and shared some of Kelsey's history with us. Our server David was professional and patient. We are already telling all our friends and family. Kelsey's will... More

Great place they make you feel like you are home. Definitely adding Kelsey's to the favorite list. We enjoyed their Sunday brunch buffet. I can't wait until we try their dinner menu.

The person who seated us, took into account it just being the 2 of us and put us in a quaint corner. Our server, Ashley, was very helpful and very polite, without being overly attentive. The cornbread was amazing and portion... More

First off, I want to not that they do have a parking lot in the back! No excuse not to leave the casinos. My wife and I ate a Saturday brunch here and we both agreed the red velvet waffles were the best waffles we ever had. The atmosphere is very warm and welcoming and the service is outstanding (thanks... More

We went just to eat & ended up seeing a great show with the great food. Kelsey came out personally & greeted us. It was so nice I went back the next night. I would do this restaurant everytime I'm in A.C.

Pacific ave location was live on a Saturday night, made online reservation, 8-9pm was rush hour so service was slow. Drinks were strong, food was great and plentiful especially the cornbread which made up for it ! I would definitely recommend and go again

My husband and I decided to schedule a quick getaway weekend to Altantic City. We called some friends from the area for a good recommendation of where to eat, they told us about Kelsey's and I'm SO GLAD they did! We arrived around 1:30 on a Saturday afternoon, so they were in the midst of their GLORIOUS brunch buffet. They... More
