My Creemore mushroom steak and baked potato were good but veggie's were cool and broccoli was not cooked.

One of the Kelseys that has a large bar area with ample booths, tables and bar seating. You can always see the game(s) from any location and one huge TV behind the bar. The parking is good but access out can be challenging. The food is very good with numerous seasonal specials and old favourites.

I was disappointed - took 35 minutes for our meal to arrive and it was lukewarm. Had to send it back to be heated. Salad was fresh and tasty and so was pasta when it was finally warm enough to eat.
The wait staff was very friendly and concerned about the temperature of the food - took it back without issue.

I loved being able to reserve a table for my moms birthday. Thank you. Prices were comparable, but I think the salmon I got was a little small. The only other problem was I think our server could have gave some change back. I believe in a 15% tip and I think she got a pretty good tip since she didn't bring back change. I could be wrong. Anyway that might be why there was no one in the restaurant at noon on sunday.

Quiet dinner to celebrate a get together and 65 bday Waitress was awesome and let us take our time Picked a Wednesday to avoid being rushed due to popularity of Kelsey and people waiting for tables Waitress remember bday and brought the desert out for table to enjoy. Food was what we anticipated taste and presentation as displayed with exception of baked potatoe Came to table cold which was disappointing as this was the second time same quest two different occasions and two different Kelsey. Think next time rather than having the potato returned microwaved she’ll try the mashed

Had the bacon mushroom melt sandwich this time. Tasted great. Upgraded to premium onion rings but don't get much so I'll probably stick with fries or poutine next time.

Had a nice meal in the bar but the music volume was loud. When I ordered the curd burger, I imagined something cheesier. Instead, I got a layer of hard to chew cheese on top of two puny patties. Unlikely to order that again!

Mac and cheese tasted great but I was expecting something fancier, maybe with toasted bread crumbs or caramelized cheese on top. Thanks again!

First time eating outside at the patio area and we enjoyed the fresh air. Peppercorn Burger was good but a little small. Good meal overall.

They were out of fish & chips, and also chili, so I ordered the breakfast burger with onion rings instead, which was good. My colleagues enjoyed their salads. Thanks!

This Kelseys has three dining areas, the patio, the bar and the main dining area. I have never sat in the patio area as it is to close to Queenston Rd with all the noise and smells going from the vehicle passing close by. The bar area is quite big with large TV's through out. The noise level can be extreme especially with game(s) being broadcast. The dining room is more quiet area good for families or couple. The food is standard Kelseys with seasonal specials and daily specials. The menu changes a coule times of years, sometimes old favourites are removed and new items added. Overall it is a good place for dinner with families or friends.

Been to this Kelsey’s quite a bit but this time the service was incredibly slow. It was not a busy night at all.
Otherwise food was good and pricing was average.

We had a reservation for 4:30 and finally got our meal about 6:15, not good. Our waitress was very good but the food wasn't. The gravy tasted like oil ( which we did tell our waitress) and my gluten free Hamburg was so small I could only taste the bun ( which was good for gluten free ) and the fries were cold. It was my Granddaughters 19th Birthday and they did a great job of singing to her with her dessert. The staff was very friendly and they did give us some vouchers for free desserts but we won't be going back. We didn't complain because our waitress was pleasant and didn't want to ruin her evening. We had made an early reservation because all the girls were going to the falls, so they got there a little later than they planned. Again all the staff was nice but the service wasn't good.
Thankyou for your time

Overall food was good; however we waited 45 min for food. There was also a cold draft blowing down on us which made experience uncomfortable :(

Added meat was forgotten. Salads were full price entree for an appetizers size. It was very disappointing. Taste was good.

We were greeted with smiles and they continued threw out our stay. Food was very good and prompt. Prices comparable to other roadhouses. Did find it a little echoy so hard to hear. All in all a very good experience.
Wish that there were round tables for large groups.

Food was great - had the chicken parm which was covered in warm melty cheese, exactly what I was craving! Both my Dad and I loved the buffalo cauliflower bites, and the four cheese spinach dip was delicious as always. Only complaint would be the poor state of the washrooms - of the three stalls in the women's room only one locked and the washroom in general was unkept and dirty.

We went to Kelsey’s to celebrate my daughters Birthday and told our server about it, nothing was done. 3/5 were not satisfied with the meals. The server seemed to be pre occupied and didn’t care about our concerns. Over all not satisfied with our experience and wouldn’t recommend to friends or family

Unfortunately, I am not able to leave many positive comments. Food was cold and disappointing. The manager did give our party 20% off which was nice of him, but not enough for anyone from our group to return anytime soon.

It was my daughter’s 13th birthday and she wanted to go to Kelsey’s. I made a reservation for 7:30 and when we arrived early they were able to seat us once they had prepared a table. We ordered our food and when it arrived late it was barely even warm. I was very disappointed considering that we have been looking forward to this outing for a while.

I had reserved on-line for 10 people - when the first people arrived, they were told there was no reservation. By the time I had arrived with the confirmation, the staff had found the reservation, the reason given for not having a table was that they did not have the wifi turned on/or it wasn't working. They tried to accomodate us in the bar area (it was for a 70th birthday and did not work for the group). We ended up leaving to go to another restaurant that was more than happy to have us.

A suggestion - do not offer online reservations!
