This little restaurant was a complete surprise. It is located in an old downtown pharmacy and very quaintly decorated. Service was excellent. The hot brown had a bt too much cheese for my taste but I will definitely go there again and try something else.

We stopped in at Kelsey's for lunch after visiting the county museum and some genealogical research at the library. The food was excellent. I had a cup of chilli and the catfish sandwich and my wife had the pork tenderloin. We definitely recommend stopping by if you're in the area and interested in great food at a great price.

I'm a regular at Kelsey's and I have never been disappointed. The home-made chicken salad sandwich is a favorite, but you really can't go wrong with any item on the menu.

Great bar with cool atmosphere. The waitresses are friendly. You can sit indoor or outdoor. There is usually live music and tv s to watch the game (they turned on the polish soccer game for us when we asked). They have a kids menu and the food is good. Great drinks aswell.

I have had a lot of different entrees and sides and it is all good. However, the Buffalo Chicken Salad is really off the charts.

The atmosphere was warm and inviting. The restaurant was filled with charm from days long gone by...former pharmacy and law office, I suppose! The food was exceptional! Save room for the Italian Cream Cake!!!
