Stopped in after the Senators game to grab some food heading to our hotel. Staff was friendly, place was very clean, prices reasonable, lots of people there, plenty of TV's to see the games.

Good variety on a special lunch menu with nice combos of soups, salads, and sandwiches. We chose the Sonoma salad with Roasted Red Pepper Soup combo. Delicious salad with plenty of ingredients combines with greens, soup was thick and filling.

This place offers a variety of meals. I usually get the Thai curry bowl, and my husband the burgers. Both are really good here. My kids also like it (kids eat free dinner on Wednesdays). I've tried burgers, curry, and pasta - all very good.

I had the fish and chips. The worst part was the coleslaw, it was inedible, WAY too much vinegar. The fish was over cooked and the chips were undercooked. The popcorn shrimp wasn’t bad though.

We had just driven for 5 hours, checked in to the hotel and wanted a quick family dinner at a place that would have plenty to choose from. Kelsey's should do, right? Picking something for everyone was easy enough and the server was quite nice. The menu 'looked' great. The challenges we had were this: My wife's drink looked great,... More

We used to come here quite often years ago, but hadn't been here in a while. I posted a rave review back in 2014, but today our visit for lunch was just average. The menu had changed since our last visit, but it seemed that the decor had not - we found it rather dark and tired looking, but to... More

Vegan choices are not big within chain restaurants. However, I went for lunch and found a waitress that realized what I was looking for and was sensitive to them

For many years this Kanata Kelsey's had been a service disaster, but just over a year ago we noticed a significant improvement and were told that the management had changed. Unfortunately our recent visit indicates that this location has not managed to sustain that improvement. When we arrived for lunch, our first warning should have been that the hostess was... More

Went with some coworkers for lunch. The burgers were great. They are often adding things to the menu regularly. The waiter was helpful in making a good choice. The lunch service was quick as well so no worries about getting back to the office on time.

Very average bar and grill. The outside was littered with cigarette butts that had not been swept up in a long time. We sat on the patio. Same dirty conditions. I only had a beverage. The servers were very nice. The management needs to scrub and clean up this location. It was much better the last time I was in... More
