We've been to Kelsey's a number of times over the years. The food is always good (get the lamb stew if they have it on the menu) whether it's fish or lamb or something else. The beer selection is also good with some local brews and well as national and international brands.

I've only been here once, but I had a good experience. Monday night is $6 burger night, and my burger was great! Plenty of TV'S with sports on in a classic pub setting. This is the kind of place I would've gone to with my friends back home to relax, eat a little, and drink. I've only had the burger,... More

It was my first visit and, to summarize, it was an average experience. We were seated at a table that needed a bit more cleaning ... a person came and politely wiped down the table and cleaned the mustard off a chair. We were a group of 9 and several of the appetizer "sharing plates" had food particles encrusted. I'm... More

For years this was a regular spot for us, but no more. The menu has gotten very small and limited. They can't even make a good nacho anymore. Favorite dishes disappeared, leaving us struggling to find something we like. The bar is busy and the bar food is good, but this is NOT a serious sit down restaurant anymore.

I had a really bad brunch at Kelsey's yesterday. The only reason I gave it a 'poor' rating and not 'terrible' is because our waitress and one of the managers were very nice and apologetic. My group waited over half an hour for our food and when it finally got to us it was cold and not worth eating. I... More

Kelsey's is the end building in Normandy Shopping Center. There is a bar area where you can also order food. In addition a separate sit down dining area if you want something a little quieter. There is an outdoor patio area which is very pleasant in summer months. I would describe cuisine as American with some Irish offerings mixed in.... More

We had a family dinner here the day before my son's wedding. The new event space was perfect and could have held many more people; food was so good. Crab cakes, London broil and herbed chicken breast with yummy appetizers before dinner and a dessert tray afterwards, along with drinks served by 2 wonderful employees made for a nice evening...

I knew there was a reason I had not been to this neighborhood restaurant before. Service was ok but the food was not. I ordered the Reuben. The bread was ok but the corned beef was thick, fatty, dry, and tasteles plus there wasn't much of it. Half the accompanying french fries were burnt and tasteless. Plus the sandwich at... More

It was of course a great pub and had some great beers, however I was shocked at how incredible the food was. I got corned beef and braised cabbage, I can honestly say it was some of the best I have ever had. The corned beef was moist and pulled apart. Fantastic choice

Our original Living Social coupon, costing $30 was to include 2 Irish draft beers, 2 salads /soup, 2 entrées and 2? dessert. Our original coupon was purchased on April 2, 2013. We attempted to redeem it before expiration on August 6, 2013. The 2 entrées were denied after Kelsey's explained "entrée" was interpreted to mean a Reuben Sandwich.Their menu entrée... More
