We were looking for a restaurant on the water and stumbled onto Kelsey B's. We sat on the porch and had a great view of the lake. The entire lunch was fantastic. We started with a scrumptious whitefish dip and then I had a chicken spinach salad. The chicken was super moist and delicious. My husband loved his Reuben and... More

I like virtually everything about this restaurant. The location is on the lake, the view outstanding. The service is prompt and friendly. Excellent local brews. I've eaten here several times with clients and they have all raved about Kelsey B's. I had the fresh lake perch on this occasion and it was an excellent choice. My favorite restaurant in Charlevoix... More

Kelsey B's has a great view of Lake Charlevoix and a large and consistently good menu. You can eat healthy food as well as great food that isn't quite so calorie-free. I have had both and like all of the food. It has consistent crowds year-round, which tells me the families around here appreciate its quality and value. I do.

Good, diverse menu; very casual; view of Lake Charlevoix. Great to sit on the screened in porch on nice days/nights. Wonderful spot of families and couples.

While in Charlevoix I was in a hurry and ordered take out from Kelsey B's. The burger was excellent and cooked to order. The fries were a bit soggy (I'm sure from sitting in the container) and the salad was HUGE! All very good! They did forget my extra dressings but wasn't a huge deal. Lots of food for a... More

Went to Kelsey B's 01/18/14 with some friends and I had the ribs and shrimp which was very good! We sat in the bar area and the bartender was also our waitress, therefore the service was a bit slow. Since we had not eaten here before we asked the waitress about the different dishes and she was spot on with... More

Worked with Tina to arrange a rehearsal dinner. Food and service was good. Limiting our menu for the large group helped in getting food served promptly. Excellent large cut of prime rib was the favorite.

While having the Tuna that was a "special", it was not very well prepared. Should have used sesame seeds to protect it but the appearance was a chocolate color that was very disappointing. The salads were very large and the Mexi skins were very good. If you are not a local and known you will get a bad table. It... More
