Long wait, waitstaff was limited. Wings ran out. NO potatoes. Food took forever, truly not a good choice that evening.

Found this place on trip advisor and WOW. Food and service were awesome. Really want to go again. I had the brisket and my husband had the large breakfast and enjoyed it so much especially the waffle.

My family and I visited Kelsey on Pacific Ave. I felt as if I was back in South Carolina. The food was awesome and the staff was great. The Manager was pleasant & funny. Our waitress was friendly & on point. You must try their shrimp & grits as an appetizer or main course. I had it as an appetizer... More

Great food but the service is very slow. The wait staff was friendly though. The staff at the register could use some Customer service training, they should be friendlier, greet people as they come in and act like the job means something to them. Again the wait staff was great though.
