Not bad for a roadhouse/chain

The food was what you would expect at a Roadhouse/Chain type restaurant. The food was good but the service was very slow. It was not busy at all so do not know why the service was as slow as it was. We will probably go there again but not a place I would want to go to very often.

Stopped for a bite after a film at the nearby cinema. I started with the cheddar broccoli soup which was quite good, and followed that with their it wonton nach which were okay (although I know some folks rave about these). My friend had a wrap which as also good. The atmosphere is nice, staff was attentive, overall a positive... More

Terrible, terrible food. Never take time to review anything online, until now. Paramount restaurant of worst food, ever. Good pictures on the menu, and almost cold bottled beer. ordered a beautiful steak dinner at one location, but was served a piece of some kind of dry hard meat, a rotting salad, and stone hard bread. Walked away from the meal.... More

We went to the bar and ordered Nachos they had been under a heat lamp all day then sprinkled with lettuce. The Bar tender ask how they were and I told her crappy. She shrugged her shoulders and walked away. She was more interested in chatting with her friends at the bar, which were the staff, than serving us.The tables... More

Used to go to the place on a regular basis - mostly to the bar and the outdoor patio in the summer. The patio got an update this year - very nice (TV-screens, furniture). In the bar area the was a 100% change of personal this year - the atmosphere is lost at the moment. The food is typical roadhouse... More

I ordered the beet salad, incredible!! Service is always excellent. The drinks not so great. My B-52 coffee was not to my liking. Go on day when it is not so busy.

Took son out for a beginning of the school year dinner. Kelsey's was his choice, but we won't be going back. Food was bland at best. Fries were hot. Service from order to table was fast, but the poor quality of food and small portions made me wish we went elsewhere. Dessert - lava cake- was dry and stale. Wide... More

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
