“Back for another try”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

We dined at Kelsey's several years ago (6+) the food was, well we never went back. In the past year or so Kelsey's has come under new Ownership, So we decided to try it again. We were Happy to find that the food has gotten MUCH better. We'll eat here again.

I have been eating in this area for the past 40 years. This is the best food that I have had and the prices can' be beat. The service was outstanding.

“Average Greek Diner”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

This is rather usual Greek diner with a better than usual decor that is becoming aged. The food is strictly main stream diner fare. We had one of their Greek Salads and a fried seafood combo. The salad was just okay, but the fish was way over cooked. Service was alright, but our server appeared to be new and not very well trained. We were there on a Saturday evening and there were very few people dining there. The housekeeping could use some attention.

“Another great night at Kelsey's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

We dined last night at Kelseys. I had grilled pork chops and my wife had the cob salad. Both of our entrees were great and plan to attend again soon! The atmosphere was also quite nice as well as the service. The last time we came we had the ribeye special and that was so good we decided to try it again and we were not disappointed! Give it a try and you will be glad you did.

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

We used to frequent Kelsey's years ago and loved the signature salad, variety of dishes, and brunch.
This trip was such a fail.
Atmosphere is beautiful, waitress was great.
The food however left something to be desired.
I had pasta and my husband the stuffed chicken.
There was no flavor and the texture for the chicken was rubbery.
So sad as this restaraunt has so much potential.

lsellas, Manager at Kelsey's Restaurant & Lounge, responded to this review, August 26, 2013
We pride ourselves in providing you with a great meal. We take feedback very seriously and the owner has made adjustments to how the stuffed chicken is both prepared and cooked. While we have no connection to the old Kelsey’s we do have many great menu items. Our menu features 10+ salads including our very own signature salads. A few examples are Greek Salad, Cobb Salad & Waldorf Salad. We may not necessarily provide you with a brunch menu but we do serve numerous breakfast items along with our lunch menu Monday through Saturday until 3pm and until 12pm on Sunday. And because we love to see our customers leave happy, please call management over anytime you are not pleased with your meal. We will do it with a REAL smile because no Greek wants to see a customer leave hungry from their establishment! We hope to see you again sometime in the future.
