We were in during the 10 for $10 special. We were a party of 6 and each ordered off the special menu and each had a beer or a cocktail as well. The portions were HUGE! Of the 6 of us, I think there was...More

Horrible restaurant! Had to wait for a table in a half empty restaurant. Once we got our table it was really dirty and someone had spilled a drink all over the floor and it was sticky. Ordered Jerk Chicken Tacos and they over spiced the...More

It is my son 17th birthday today. He chose Kelseys because his father takes him here often and they have a great time. My steak was well done even though I asked for medium. Sirloin is not a forgiving cut so medium is max. They...More

The service was slow. I had to track down the waitress several times. It seemed she tried not to look our way when she came near. The food was ok but with so many other options they will not get a second chance.

Really bad move with the renovations and the odd menu. I knew we should not have gone, I wish I had listened to myself. It is a giant box that looks like a cafeteria. They have really gone in the wrong direction. It needed updating,...More

Kelsey's always had that homey neighbourhood feel, was a great place to come to for a cheap and easy meal after a long day. Not anymore. The new gutted interior with bright lighting and no privacy is just awful. It is so loud you can...More

Oh dear! We had previously enjoyed several visits to this restaurant close to home in Barrhaven. It has recently been renovated into a version of factory modern. Gone are the carpets and booths. Say hello to a vast open space with a concrete floor. We...More
