    Made a reservation for 6 people and I couldn't enter that we prefer a table rather than all booth seats. This would be something to consider adding when users book online

    When we arrived they couldn’t find my reservation had no record if I didn’t have my email probably couldn’t get in. And the staff was very rude with us when it was their mistake no mine. Wasn’t impressed with service they were more concerned with their friends and getting us out. Wasn’t impressed with the food either

    The food was good. The server Dylan was outstanding. The service, ie the time to receive our food was awful. We waited over an hour and the restaurant was not crowded.

    Nachos were under cooked, fajitas steak were over cooked. Waiter had too many tables for how busy it was. For the price, we could have went to the keg for an enjoyable evening. We won’t be back.

    Service was very pleasant and friendly. Table setting, great - was spacious enough so our group didn't feel crowded at all. Food - taste was ok, some things better than others. Only one person ordered an alcoholic drink and it took a long time for it to come after the rest of us had our beverages Worst part - Food was COLD. The one appetizer was quite hot, but the main course, for most of the table it was cold. Ordered the steak with mushroom sauce - the sauce was cold and partially congealed, which was not very nice. The steak was tender, but I ordered medium rare and it was medium at best. The broccoli was cooked just enough to be a bright green but not enough to be edible, still far too crunchy, and was too cold to even melt any butter. Others mentioned their food was not very hot either or not hot at all. Hence why I would not recommend because cold food is an important thing for me. Had not been in a long time but next time I will choose somewhere else for my family get together.

    Noise level was very loud. Found the prices very expensive but we had an excellent server who made the experience worthwhile. Every restaurant should have staff like this girl….she was 10/10.

    The service was excellent, our server was delightful. We arrived about 2 minutes after 5pm and I noticed beer was half price before 5pm. Perhaps I’m too hopeful but it could not have hurt to stretch the the cut-off time for beer another couple minutes. My wife enjoyed the salad immensely. The couple we were there with also very much enjoyed their meals. I ordered the fish and chips which was mediocre at best. Mostly batter. That said, I would recommend and I would go to any of the Kelsey’s again. It’s convenient and good atmosphere. Please do not shift any of the negatives to the server. She was excellent. Did a great job!

    We had reservations for the bar to watch the Canada soccer game that started at 11. As Kelsey’s advertised events we thought it would open a bit earlier so we would be seated for the start of the game. Long story short Canada scored before the doors were open and we missed the goal. We stayed and enjoyed the rest of the game but were super disappointed. We frequent Kelsey’s regularly and could have gone somewhere closer to home to watch but chose this bar.

    I ordered the Beet, goat cheese salad. It was very substantial NOT just topped with the good stuff and then a bunch of fillers. I ate the whole thing. Best salad ever, I will order it again. Both my companions enjoyed their meal. I will be coming back for my birthday. Also the funnel cake was excellent and an easy desert to share! Service was amazing!!

    We had a reservation for 530 and were seated right away. We sat for 30 minutes before anyone came to take our drink order. Other tables who were seated after us received their drinks and appetizers before our drink orders were even taken. Finally a waitress came and took our drink order and after being there for 50 minutes our drinks arrived, we placed our food order which were 2 meals. After 1 hour 10 minutes we still did not have our food, we were told one of our meals were dropped by accident. We understood that and waiting for our meals to be served. We had to take them to go as we had another appointment and only had 1 hour 30 minutes for dinner. We did not get to eat our meals before our appointment which was very disappointing as we were looking forward to our meals. We received $10 off of our bill for the error in dropping our meal but we sat there for 1 hour 40 minutes before receiving any food which did not leave us any time to eat. Also just to add the restuarant was not full, our section had 8 tables with 2 servers in our section.
