“Great food and drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

I always seem to go to Kelsey's in a large group of people and that likely slows down the service, but the food and the drinks (especially the Pineapple Express and new Brownie Poppers) are well worth the wait.

“Good but overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

I have to agree with the other reviews that commented on the prices this chain restaurant charges. Over the past year we have had several meals here. Our most recent time was September 30. Thank you Vicky L! The food is good but the prices for the "dinner entrees" are high for such casual dining. The one thing about this location is the excellent service we have always experienced, which I certainly cannot say about other Kelsey's.
The other great aspect is the later closing time. Many times(beyond our control) we were unable to stop for dinner at the "regular" times and boy was this Kelsey's a welcome sight for a good hot meal! The building itself is showing a lot of wear and tear--hopefully there will be some refurbishment and changes to the menu. Thanks for being open late!

“No place like home”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Dave and Drew and the entire Kelsey's family do there best to deliver. The service is always outstanding, the food is sometimes hit and miss, but not a reason to not continue to return. They are the best Kelsey's I visit. You will definitely have a pleasurable experience!

CHEERS to you all!

“quality”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

The menu is dependable, but if you have eaten at any Kelsey's you may find the choices limiting after a while.

“August 2012”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

I like Kelsy's food, even though it was busy and we had to wait a little for our food our server was very attentive and made sure to always acknowledge us as she passed us - we didn't feel we had been forgotten
