We will go to Kelsey's because of the atmosphere - it is busy and lively. We like to eat by the bar. I do find the servings are too large. I don't want a double hamburger. I ordered it anyway and removed one patty - wasteful. My husband had fish and chips and was able to order one piece rather... More

It was some time since our last visit and my husband I looked forward to a Sunday evening snack at Kelseys -good in past! Now one week later the disappointing experience is still fresh on our minds. We ordered a nacho dish to share. We couldn't find meat to start with, then discovered that the vegs could NOT be picked... More

Food on the floor, dirty place settings and dry cold food. The service was mediocre and the restaurant was freezing.

My husband and I visited Kelsey's before seeing a movie in the same plaza. I generally like Kelsey's, but we really only chose to eat here because of their movie deal (they sell movie tickets at a discounted rate if you buy an entree). When we arrived, we were seated right away. It was a Saturday, but it didn't seem... More

Went on Thursday for 1/2 price wings. I'm thinking they make them only half as good on Thursday. Wings were over-cooked and dry, very dry.Service was good and they stayed on top of ensuring our drinks were refilled regularly.

After eating at another Kelsey's a few years ago (Owen Sound) and having a bad experience we thought we'd try this one. Like I said "just so so".

The food we had was good but not exceptional. I guess when you think about it you could say that about many restaurants, so then service becomes an important issue. No problem with the service here as our waiter was prompt and very nice and courteous. He came back two or three times to see if we needed anything. The... More

The food is good and the service matches the food. The portions are large and there is plenty of selection. The prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is consistent. I will come back for sure.

I used to go to Kelsy's for the fisherman's platter or the fajitas. They discontinued the platter, so I usually just get the fajitas. Kelsey's have had several price increases over the last several years, - usually when they change menus. I don't really think, although the fajitas taste good, that it's an exceptional value. One can go to other... More

Loved the size of the appetizers. The loaded nachos and chicken quesadilla was fantastic. Service was really good. Only weakness was water top ups and size of calamari portion were a little weak.
