We have eaten at Kelsey's frequently but wanted to celebrate St. Paddy's while our son was in town since he hasn't been here. We went on 3/18 since we knew it would be crazy on 3/17. Glad we had a reservation as it was packed....More

Hoped to celebrate St. Pat. Day with the typical corned beef & cabbage supper. So, I nestled up to the bar to order. Well, the corned beef was not so much Prepared as it was Manufactured. It seemingly had been fabricated in some Midwest factory,...More

Kelsey's is a favorite stop especially if you're in the mood for some authentic Irish food like beef stew or Shepherds Pie. They have a variety of other items that you can choose from so everyone can find something good. It has a vibrant bar...More

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
