“WORST FOOD I HAVE EVER ATE AND HORRIBLE SERVICE”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

THIS IS THE WORST PLACE I HAVE EVER BEEN. WHATEVER YOU DO DO NOT BUY PASTA OR SHRIMP HERE. i have gone here three times and each was worst than the last. i swear that the waiter was purposly ignoring her tables and when i tried to flag her down she just looked at me dumbly and walked away. this is the worst place to eat in charlevoix.

Check out "Mr. M's" other reviews of Charlevoix...very unfair to give us a review like this without ever speaking to management about your experiences. We are a local's favorite, and always strive for good food & service.

“Fun, locals hang-out.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

We've just recently had dinner twice at Kelsey B's, & really enjoyed what we ordered both times. Their sandwiches are great, especially the chicken panini, and my Black & Blue Burger was excellent last Sat! It's very different, with blue cheese, bacon & avocado, and definitely too huge to finish. I brought the 2nd half home for lunch the next day. We've also enjoyed their entree salads, but not their soups! They're way too heavy, & thick.

People always seem to be enjoying themselves there. I think it's popular with the locals.

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Great service, great food and great view of Lake Charlevoix. Will be back again. Scenic view of Lake Charlevoix which we were looking for. In Charlevoix you always want a resturant that has a water view. We were not disappointed.
