  • The Servers have always been wonderful. Management is extremely UNprofessional. Yes, I said unprofessional! Food is adequate but why take the chance....there are better restaurants in Bowmanville

  • We used to be regulars here until Eastside Marios and Boston Pizza came to town, but now we only go if the other places are crowded or closed. Kelsey's food is not good. It's badly cooked, badly seasoned and quite drab. They've done a few overhauls to the decor over the years but it's not very successful. It's dreary and, in my opinion, not very clean. The carpets are stained and there's always a layer of dust on the window ledges and blinds. I usually order a steak but I can't remember the last time when I had a nice one. The service is also slow. They are in a different league than Boston Pizza - a much, much lower one.

  • I have experienced nothing here that would temp me to return.

    Typical Roadhouse atmosphere and fare. But fail to understand why there are line ups on the weekend. Guess I missed out on the coupons ..... lol.

    Food is overpriced ...... 12 -15 for a burger !!!

    Food is mostly from frozen, and last two times I was there it was next to cold. I swear they precook everything and put it under a heat lamp.

    I went to their Wing Special. It was obvious that all they do is cook up a thousand plain wings in advance, put them under a heat lamp, and sauce them as ordered. My wings arrived within two minutes of ordering them. Obviously the quality was substandard.

    If I want wings I will go to The Village Inn.

    Somona Salad is the only thing that I would return for.

  • Order: Wings, Peppercorn burger, Somona Salad.

  • I ordered a salad. You would think where can they go wrong with this one. It was wilted and brown. I wasn't impressed considering it was 10 bucks. When I told them they just said oh that is too bad, no offer of a new one or a discount. It will be a while before I visit this one again. The one in Whitby is much much better.

  • Although this restaurant is more expensive than the East Sides' across the street, the food tends not to be as good.
    I recently visited it and it had gotten better.
    I've visited it in the past and the whole meal has been comped as it was incorrect and when it arrived it was uncooked.
    Summary - go to East Sides
