Went to Kelsey's for dinner on a Friday night. It was only half full and there were people coming. But it was certainly not full. I'm going to comment on the food, the cost and the service separately . The service was slow and too intrusive . There were only three of us when usually there are at least 10... More

Kelsey's just launched their 'Build Your Own Burger' menu option, and it's pretty awesome! The bar area of Kelsey's has a great atmosphere, nice bar, lots of TV's. Service was excellent and so was the burger. Here are the toppings I had... - Ace bun - 2 patties - Bacon - Cheddar cheese - Onion rings - Potato hash brown... More

It's in our neighborhood but haven't been for years. Saw their new menu and thought it was time to visit and glad we did. Ate in the bar, which is nice and cozy. Server Leanna was prompt, efficient and friendly. I had the bacon Mac and cheese with a Caesar salad. Nice flavor and good quantities. The Mac and cheese... More

Menu has changed since our last visit but still had a d cent variety. Our waitress was Valerie and I must say she did a very good... More

Stopped by here for dinner. Servers great. Seating, love the booth. Fish and chips, OK. Love the coating, but perhaps too salty. Cod fish used had no flavour. All in the batter. Fries, OK... I had gravey also, it needed to be warmer not Luke warm. Coleslaw great. Will I return, of course. Kelsey's is about much more.

We had reservations for 50 people (an entire lacrosse team and families) they kept 17 rambunctious teenage boys fed on fantastic food in record time! Nicole and Janson must have went home and slept that night! Thanks for helping make wonderful memories for our team, and help my son celebrate his 16th birthday!

Only three tables in the bar area. It took about 20 minutes to get drinks and another 10 before our food order was taken. this was after the lunch rush. Waitress spent a lot of time standing beside the bar talking to another waitress who had the only two tables in the dining room. The bartender had to finally step... More

I have not been to a Kelseys in awhile but we had lunch there recently. My son had the steak sandwich which he thought was great while my husband had Peppercorn Burger (he really really likes this one). I decided to try the Thai Shrimp Curry Bowl. It was a very large portion and the shrimp were a good size... More

last year I stopped coming here when I had the thai shrimp noodles. Found cheap noodles called MAGGI in asian shops for 25 cents a pack. Again went last week, ordered messy fish burger, which is supposed to be their favorite. Nowhere near what is described in the menu, so much batter and too oily. had to peel off the... More

Since Kelsey's opened up in our neighbourhood a number of years ago, we have kept giving them our business but we definitely go there less and less for a number of reasons. First of all, the service is always slow. Our server, Jansen was excellent, but the food invariably takes forever. We have noticed this at other Kelsey's too and... More
