    We both had a serving of chicken. The chicken tenders with fries were hot and tasty but a bit dry. The chicken bites I ordered was slightly coated in a honey garlic sauce. However most of the bites had very little sauce. The chicken itself was also incredibly dry. Fries were delicious for both orders though. The services was fast and very friendly. He was attentive but didn’t hover.

    Haven’t been to Kelsey’s in quite a few years, so me and a family member decided to go there. It was a great experience, the decor/ambiance was lovely, the waiters were very friendly and polite, and the food was great ! Only downside is there could of been more vegetarian options but they let me substitute meat for veggies.

    The waiter forgot our drinks and kept us at the table for 30 minutes before taking our drink order and then subsequently Forgot them. He then forgot to bring our bill after we had asked for it a half hour before needing to leave. When the bill was brought he had all of our items on the wrong bills It was very loud and even though there was a booth empty and I had requested one the insisted on putting us in the middle of the dining area Thumbs way down! The food was cooked wel and did taste good. But it wasn’t enough to make us ever want to come back

    We arrived at 5pm and were the only customers, the server was great and took our orders at 5:10. more customers were arriving and and soon it was full, our server was doing his best, but we started noticing everyone that came after us were receiving their orders, the table beside us had the same as what we ordered and they had arrived 30 minutes after us. At approximately 6:20 we received our order and one of the orders were cold, Great food but someone messed up.

    I will say that there was a hiccup. Our order was delayed or missed for some reason. The server promptly explained. I chose to not reflect that in our review since the situation was remedied by a sincere apology by the server and a drink for myself and wife on the house.

    Disappointing as we ordered the Chicken fried chicken and it came with BEEF gravy on it. Waiter said they ran out of the chicken gravy . Well beef gravy doesn’t go with friend chicken in my books. Also I think we should have been informed as what if I was allergic to beef. Or I could have ordered something else . Normally we are satisfied with the food but tonight was a disappointment.

    It took a while for your dinner to arrive. We were patient and waited while we saw other orders go out. I had to ask the waitress to see how much longer it would be. I would say we were going on 45-50 minutes before our food arrived. One order of wings were cold but we didn’t send back because we were hungry and didn’t want to wait any longer

    Our Server Susie is always great! She’s professional, funny, personable & is a Thunder Bay Kelsey’s Icon. She has customers (like us) who ask to sit in her section. Always great service! Monique is also someone who should be recognized as a Kelsey’s Customer favourite. We enjoy dealing wit them both.

    The experience at Kelseys was dreadful. We arrived and were seated right having made a reservation. After 20 minutes we finally saw our waitress and ordered our food and drinks. The drinks arrived 15 minutes later, an the food 1 hour later. We won't return as this is the second time this has happened in a row. The restaurant wasn't even at half capacity, but there was a steady stream of Skip the Dishes and Uber Eats drivers, picking up take out. At this particular restaurant in Thunder Bay, the take out orders clearly have first priority over the people dining in. It was absolutely awful.

    Ordered fish and chips with 2 fish, only got one. They said they would get another right away. Everyone at table was finished and still 2nd piece did not come. Just as well. Fish was mostly batter with no taste. Other meals were mediocre.

    The overall experience was below what it usually is. Service was slow, had the soup which was just a cool warm, not hot, the fish and chips usually is very good was somewhat tasteless. My wife enjoyed her Salmon dish though. Was looking forward to going to Kelseys, not been there for a while during Covid, but wish it had turned out better for me.
