I visited this place for the first time in the spring. I ordered chicken bites. The picture on the menu basically depicted popcorn chicken, which I was okay with and what I expected to receive. What I got was barely edible. Instead of chicken bites...or popcorn chicken, what I got was strings of crispy dry chicken, absolutely coated in greasy... whatever that stuff was supposed to be. They were very very thin, maybe 10% chicken and 90% coating. Some pieces didn't even have any chicken inside at all, just pure coating. It was one of the worst meals I have ever had the displeasure of being served. The person serving us was great, she took our complaint with grace. Despite that, I will never go back. The food was just too bad to consider it.More

I've been here a few times over the years and have had some great meals, but this evening I tried the Alfredo chicken which left me a little disappointed - to me it just tasted a little bland and chicken had a very strange texture....However, other people at the table did have good feedback on their food, so I'll just know for next time to maybe opt for another menu option! Our server was an absolute sweetheart and was very attentive! I don't think we'd rush back, but would have no issue trying it again another time.More

Quite a disappointment. We go to Kelsey’s a lot but this one the manager was “too busy” to deal with the issues. Alissa was our server and she had 3 other tables with complaints specifically that the broccoli was almost raw yet we were served...the Thai curry bowl with raw broccoli and spaghetti instead of the usual rice noodles. Also when ordering I asked if I could just have spaghetti with no chicken parm sort of like the Alfredo at that price but was told the manager said no she can have spaghetti with no chicken at chicken parmigiana price. What!!!!! Anyway my husband se t his Thai curry bowl with raw broccoli and spaghetti and ordered a chicken fajaitas Even then no manager. Our friends enjoyed their dinners. Anyway my husband ended up eating after we were all finished our dinners. Still no manager. Finally when we were paying I said to Alissa the manager should have come and at the very least apologized. Alissa said she was in the phone. For an hour????? I also said we do t want it but she should have agai. At Least offered him a dessert as he paid a lot more for his new meal and ate it alone. I will not recommend this restaurant at all and the manager needs more training not to leave her server deal with 4 tables of complaints alone. Shame on you manager! BbMore

Had a wonderful lunch at Kelseys. The atmosphere was very chill, not too loud like too many mid range restaurants. Our server Blaze was great and gave us excellent advice on choosing doneness of our steaks. We had wings to start and each had a...steak for our meal. I had the balsamic mushroom sirloin and it was one of the best steaks I've had in some time! Highly recommend!More

Ordered the chicken caeser salad. It did not come as advertised. There was no cheese, I found one small crumble of bacon in the entire salad and I got not even a tablespoon of caeser salad dressing to mix in a giant salad. Safe to...say it wasn't even enough to cover half the salad. Will never order from Kelsey's again.More

We decided to visit Kelseys one evening and really enjoyed it. We ordered cheese and bacon potato skins to share for our appetizer, very tasty. My husband ordered wings and ribs, which he enjoyed, he especially liked the tasty wings. I ordered fish and chips....Kelseys would not be my “go to” place for fish and chips, there are other in places in St. John’s that do better, but it was good, served hot, but a bit greasy. Service was prompt with just enough time between appetizer and main to enjoy a chat while we munched.More

We ordered Kelsey's for Curbside Pick-Up during COVID-19. The app was easy to use, the food was delicious and fresh and the customer service was top notch with wait time being minimal. The Wings and Burgers were especially delicious. My husband said it's the best...burger he's ever had. We will certainly be indulging again! Yum!More
