My food came with a hair from the kitchen staff. Disgusting. Waiter replaced but management did not come out to speak with me nor apologize. Waiter replaced my order however the next one came undercooked. Disappointing.

Friendly greeting. Seated quickly. Server was at the table within minutes for drink order. Food was a little slow coming out but very hot. Mixed up one dinner but was corrected immediately. Will definitely go again.

Unfortunately our visit was not an enjoyable one. First when I tried to book online they earliest times was 7. When we called we were able to change it to 6. When we got there the restaurant was empty! So no idea why tables weren’t available. Our server did the best he could but I think he was the only one for the entire restaurant. It took almost an just for our food (and I will remind you that there were knots about three other tables in the place) and when it arrived it was cold. There was no chance of sending it back since it might have taken too way too long to get it back. Sadly not money well spent

after we were seated at our table and given our menus we sat for 15mins. and not one server came near out table to take drink orders or ask if we needed anything.
as we waited two other tables were seated, then we noticed that one of the other tables that had just been seated were having there orders taken.
the restaurant was not too busy so there was no excuse for our bad treatment.
in this area there are plenty of restaurants so we left and went to another restaurant where we were seated and served in a proper time, we had a great meal at this restaurant and will return there, i do not think that i will return to kelseys where we were ignored.

The service was excellent the food was fair. I had the entchilladas but was somewhat disappointed since they were filled with predominately onions. In the past the enchiladas were much tastier with moderate onions,

That was a great meal! Kelseys has upped its food - taste and quality - and redone the decor. Great value for the money. Thanks Kelseys

The cookie dessert is a little bit silly at over 1500 calories. Seriously, consider normal sized cookies instead of dinner plate-sized thick cookies.

From a pandemic dining point of view I would have preferred menus accessible from my phone instead of plastic menus, which nobody explained whether they were wiped down or not. Also given there were only one and then two other groups in the dining room the entire time I was there, you could have probably spaced groups out farther apart.

I haven't been in the Ajax Kelseys in a while. They have renovated, whether due to Covid 19 or not, I don't know. The restaurant was bright and immaculate. I enjoyed visiting.
