We received a nice flyer with new menu items, and decided to give the newly renovated Kelseys a try. Party of 4. Thursday evening, 5:30. Met at the front by a snarling rude lady who might be the asst. manager, as she was dressed differently from the wait staff and seemed a little older. The restaurant was easily 50% empty... More

Pretty much summed it up in the title. Waited forever... the poor waitress.. kept saying it's coming, it's coming...my kids were starting to loose it, as we were all hungry when we went in... and they had waited patiently for 75mins... the waitress finally said she was getting the manager to see what was taking so long.. I said forget... More

This restaurant was originally (many years ago) a great Stratford eatery. Over the years it seems to have gone downhill, and in the last couple of years, it downright sucked. I hate to see restaurateurs lose their investment, but unfortunately for whatever reason they seemed to have thrown in the towel years ago. Sometime in the past few months, the... More

My friend was served what seemed like reheated, dried out Double chicken wings at 2 p.m., and when she showed the waitress, she said, "Oh well," and didn't do anything about it. SCD couldn't eat the salty bacon & macaroni either, SO paid @ $30.00 for it and left without eating lunch.

We wanted to go out for a quick bite to eat before my son's Junior B hockey game. Not being from Stratford we decided to go to Kelsey's. We were greeted quickly and asked to sit by the bar so we could watch the NHL games that were being played. We had prompt service by the blond bartender. She was... More

We decided to go to Kelsey's for lunch while visiting the area. It was around 2:30 in the afternoon and we were promptly seated. Both of us ordered a steak sandwich and draft beer. The meal and the service were good. The restrooms were clean.

I'm not a huge fan of chain resteraunts as I feel the food is never as good. That being said, when your simply looking for a good burger, Kelsey's is always a safe bet. The service was great, food was good and the time was good as well. It's nice to be in a place once in a while where... More

The Kelsey's chain is a great place to eat as there is a great variety of menu choices. The staff understand and accommodate you when you are trying to make a theatre show. Prices are very reasonable and the service is good.

Went on a Sat. evening, about 8:00 p.m. Busy, but not packed. Ordered our drinks that took 15 minutes to arrive. Excuse was that they'd run out of pasta and had to talk to all the tables that had ordered pasta and retake their orders. What restaurant runs out of pasta? We finally ordered our meals and waited another 45... More

I came here for my birthday dinner. The server barely said a word to us and she seemed annoyed at the fact that she had to serve us. She was nothing special. I think she came to our table 3 times in our visit. I told her it was my Birthday and she couldn't even let out a "Happy Birthday"... More
