The restaurant was not busy. The food orders took about 1 hour to come out. Our 4-year old cannot wait that long and remain civil. The portion sizes we very small. The cost was higher than similar restaurants. Not recommended.

This review is for Kelsey's at 589 Fairway Rd Kitchener. Greeted at door and quickly taken to a table and left for a few minutes with the menu before asking for our drinks order. Drinks arrived swiftly and then our food order was taken. Food arrived at appropriate time, not too fast as I would be suspicious that it was ready cooked and waiting for a diner and not too slow - just right. We ordered 3 different meals and all our order was well presented and enjoyable. Waitress pleasant and attentive without being over bearing. Did try the deep fried Mars bar for desert, wouldn't recommend it as it is a bit too sickly but that is not the fault of the restaurant.

Fair price for a very good all round experience.

Adequate food but not for a special occasion. For the price you would expect a little more. Restaurant needs a complete overhaul in terms of their seating and tables. Looks a little dirty and has a damp smell. However, I find all kelseys in a similar condition.

Wonderful staff and a new menu. Glad to see it's being properly managed and that we have another choice in this small town.
