We went here for lunch one day and the food seemed to have way too much effort put into it with not such good results. We would try it again, but on someone else's tab. Creativity is ok, but abnoxious seems to be the theme on some dishes.

A friend and I needed a bite to eat before a movie and were recommended this place, although they take reservations we were seated right away in a booth of our choice (the next person to ask for a booth was denied as they were all reserved) and our server was friendly and did a good job especially considering a...

I went back for a second visit, well that was where my mother wanted to take me for my birthday lunch so I decided to give it a second try. The chicken quesadilla is what she had and enjoyed and I had the Grilled Chicken Salad. The flavors are delicious, the only thing is I wish there had been more... More

I like this place but I have found it to be inconsistent. Some visits I'm delighted with the dish and its preparation. But there's been times when I got gristle instead of a steak and my burger was raw.

Every time we have eaten at Kelvan's, it has been a wonderful experience. We usually get a glass of wine, a cup of soup, and split an entrée. Many times Laura has waited on us, but on occasion, others. Super friendly staff. Soup is always hot, entrée always consistent. What more can I say? One of the best places to... More

Quality of food was poor! Apparently this restaurant caters to the near welfare class. Will give service passing grade, but overall a below average establishment.
