Excellent dining experience. Food and service was exemplary. The owner took time to talk with us extensively which impressed us. If you want to relax and appreciate your time away from home, this is an awesome place to eat or hang out.

I have been numerous times over the years. Tried many items on the menu and all were really tasty. Comfortable atmosphere. Casual dining. Reasonably priced. Definitely worth the trip!

Enjoyed a great salad for lunch. Service was terrific. Atmosphere is casual and relaxed. The salad was green with walnuts, dried cranberries and a maple dressing.

A group of 8 friends called at the last minute and the folks at Kelvan ' s gladly accommodated all of us. It was a great meal and very friendly wait staff. The owner was very friendly. I am sure we will be going back.

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.
