Have been to Kelsey's meany times. Food is great - service friendly. When you just don't feel like cooking, but don't want to get dressed up or travel too far, Kelsey's is there for you.

We used to go to Kelsey's all the time for lunch when I worked in this area. Recently, I was able to meet up with a friend who I have not seen in a few months and when deciding on where to have lunch, we both said, "Kelsey's." It's a very large place with a nice long bar and plenty... More

I have been going here for 20 years and if I'm grabbing dinner or lunch it's hard to choose somewhere else!

Tucked away in the Normandy Shopping Center, you have to search out this place. It's worth the search. Very appealing Irish pub atmosphere, especially in the bar area. The menu is a combination of Irish (Shepard's pie, corned beef & cabbage) and classic American. All items are with fresh quality ingredients, well prepared. An extensive list of beers and ales...

Irish pub that also has a banquet room attached. We had our wedding in the banquet room in April after loving the food in the restaurant. Friendly to GF folks - the menu is marked with options can be prepared gluten free, and they are honest about any cross-contamination risks. Very friendly service and banquet management; for the wedding, all... More

I loved everything about this pub. We met another couple for dinner. The staff was fabulous! The food delicious and some unique dishes. Refreshing! It was Saturday night they had a band. It was a very comfortable atmosphere. I recommend the Maryland Seafood pasta (crab meat, shrimp, roasted corn, Zucchini, Squash tomatoes, fettuccinie with a Butter lemon sauce)

Well Living Social has done it again, helped me "discover" another awesome restaurant I would have otherwise missed. Hubby and I went to Kelseys on a Sunday night before we had to pick our son up at the airport, it was easy to find and lots of parking right out front. We started with Honey Old Bay Wings with and...

We come here frequently and always enjoy the friendly, relaxed atmosphere. The server told us about the specials (I didn't realize that burgers were 50% off on Mondays). The menu was primarily sandwiches, burgers with some entrees - including some Irish specialties. I liked the soft Irish music playing in the background. The food was delicious and served on time....

Very good corned beef and cabbage and mashed potatoes. Would have been rated excellent, but the corned beef was a wee bit too salty. Wife had a very tasty steak salad.

Kelsey's Pub has been the "Neighborhood Meeting Place" for over 20 years! A step above pub food, Kelsey's offers it all. Voted area's Best Burgers, great wings, crab cakes, and voted top Corned Beef and Cabbage in the Baltimore Metro Area. 14 TVs and 14 draught beers makes it a great place to enjoy the games. Live music keeps the place hopping after the games stop. Kelsey's also has a separate dining room with a fireplace for when you would like just some quiet time and now a new PRIVATE ROOM available for all occasions. Kelsey's truly has it all, come as a guest and leave as an old friend. Slanite
