OUTSIDE: Looks derelict. In desperate need of face lift. INSIDE: Traditional pub interior. Great condition atmosphere. SERVICE: Expedient, friendly and professional. FOOD: Excellent quality & quantity.

Restaurant was so cold had to eat Valentines Dinner with winter coats On! Food was average. I figured when ordering chicken fingers it would come with a side, but I was incorrect. Just 5 fingers on a plate. They were tasty though. Not in a hurry to come back until winter is over.

Needed some food and drink following a Saturday afternoon of hiking in the area. Decided to give the local Kelsey's a try, and so glad we did. We sat in the bar area and received great service. The food was surprisingly awesome and I shared my feedback with the manager. He said their best guy was working in the kitchen,... More

Four adults, one six year old, seated at a bench table which was fine except, did not see any place to hang winter attire making the space very cramped. Benches are so close to table that people sitting across from each other had no room to position feet without interfering with each other. Every time the front door was opened... More

We had a late lunch at Kelsey's after some shopping. We had not been to a Kelsey's in over a year so the menu had changed. We were seated right away and our server took our drink order and explained the lunch menu top us. We decided on appetizers, fried pickles and popcorn shrimp. The fried pickles were coins, not...

My wife had the Grilled Cheese soup. again a tasty meal for lunch. The problem was, we placed our order at 12:10. The lunch crowd had yet to arrive. We go our food... More

Waited 50 minutes for our meal! Fries were cold. The manager or assistant manager apologized and comped our drinks. The whole meal should've been comped. Run down looking. The bench seats were badly ripped across from us. Used to be a nice place to go, it's too bad.

Nothing unexpected here, typical Kelseys. Fast friendly efficient restaurant. Nice big long tables easily sat 6 of us in the booth, fish tacos were really good, fish and chips had a weird breading on them, not as good as the battered fish and chips we used to enjoy at other Kelseys. Brocoli soup is as good as always, and the... More
