“Yum!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

After reading reviews for Kelsey & Kim's I was determined to find the restaurant to see what everyone was raving about. We ordered take out and the staff was very friendly and helpful. I was told that the order would take 30 minutes which I was ok with since that meant freshly cooked. We ordered a fried chicken platter and another platter with bbq chicken and beef ribs. The fried chicken was delicious an the ribs were meaty and flavorful.

“Great weekend brunch!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

My wife and I spent 5 days in Atlantic City and ate at Kelsey's Thursday evening upon arriving. We had eaten at another location of the restaurant and the food was just as good. We decided to try the weekend brunch and were equally pleased with the food quality and service. You have to visit when in AC.

“So good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

I had corn bread, BBQ Ribs, Sweet Potato fries, and Green Beans. My wife and daughter shared grilled pork chops with sweet potato fries. Then for desert we all shared the Black Out cake. Everything was so good! If I lived in the area, I'd be a regular customer, that's for sure!
Good service too. The price was good.

“Southern Comfort in AC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

During our visit to AC during Memorial Day weekend, my wife read a review about Kelsey and Kim's Southern Cafe, so we decided to try it. Who knew Jersey could do it like this. We were warmly welcomed upon entering the restaurant. The hostess and waiter were very attentive. I knew this place would be good when I asked for sweet tea, which they had, and I didn't need to add any additional sugar to it. The food arrived hot and fresh. We were served a good amount of food, so much that we couldn't finish ours and had to ask for a to-go box. Kelsey and Kim's is a definate must when in AC.
