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

We tend to visit our local Kelsey's about once a month. The food is always good, with excellent selection for the entire family. The services is always fast and friendly and the prices are reasonable.

Typical Kelsey's. Locacted near the Canadian Tire Arena. You would think they would be a well oiled machine on the event night. But unfortunately not... We waited and waited for our waiter . Asked for the drink menu and didn't see him for 15mins. Had to skip ordering food . Took two drinks and the bill. Unfortunately for the waiter... More

its the usual menu of items but the service was better than other Kelseys. Server was friendly and efficient although it was a bit before the lunch hour.

Came in a while after the lunch rush on a Saturday. Most of the lynch crowd had left. The hostess arrived soon after I came in and asked to seat me on the bar side; I asked for a corner seat in the restaurant part specifically for a more quiet area. Well within a few minutes of being seated, the... More

The menu changes frequently and this menu was a whole lot better than the last time we ate in this restaurant (about 3 years ago). The staff were very friendly, the food very good and the price was in the mid-range but reasonable. This menu was very good and had better choices than in the past.

Called here last night with husband for eats after seeing a movie. Waitress was pleasant enough but the food was just good enough really, nothing special Menu all the same stuff - everything with fries, unless you want pasta. Husband moaned about there being no decent local beer on tap. Guess some brewery have a monopoly here. Won't be rushing... More
