The worst Nacho plate ever.

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... read more

Terrible experience, terrible food, terrible drinks, terrible service. I never had such bad experience. We will never come back again.

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.

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

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
