Tonight my husband and I had reservations at a place in Merrillville (will leave out the name, i'll review their page after this) for our 11th wedding anniversary dinner. We had such a horrible experience there that we had to get up and leave without having dinner- and decided to drive the half hour to go to Kelsey's and make the best of it. We arrived to Kelseys and Rigoberto was our server, who came to our table with a smile and promptly after we arrived. He asked what we could drink- and if we were celebrating anything that night (which I've never been asked there and i've been a million times!). So we let him know it was our anniversary in which he congratulated us (again with a warm smile!) and went to get our drinks. Throughout our meal our drinks were never empty and we received warm, fast, courteous service from Rigoberto-we even talked about how nice he was during our meal. After we were stuffed from a wonderful meal- Rigoberto comes to our table with a piece of chocolate cake and two forks, for my husband and I to share. It was a sweet surprise and a nice ending to our anniversary meal. Rigoberto doesn't even know it, but he saved what started out to be a bad night for us. Thank you for the wonderful service!

From our server Sadie to the wonderful food and drinks, it was a great dinner and a good opportunity to unwind at the end of a long day. Food was excellent. Sadie was the highlight of our experience, her commentary and suggestions and overall friendly exchange was the perfect touch.

Never disappointed in the quality at Kelsey's.

Wonderful evening!! Our server, Krista, was wonderful, and the meal was first rate. Were we here longer we'd return. Highly recommended.

Rigobeyto was our server! Excellent service and amazing food as usual! Loved the New York Strip with the Kelsey's red potatoes! And the Carmel Apple Pie was the best ever!!!

We have attended Kelsey's many times and every time we go the food is amazing, but the service is just as good if not better and definitely enhances our experience. Our last visit brought Rich to us as our server and we both felt compelled to come and leave a review for him letting you know what a benefit he is to the restaurant. Not only did he make us feel right at home, but he even engaged us in some small talk and felt what was like him going out of his way to make sure we were enjoying ourselves as much as we could. We love dining at Kelsey's, but if we knew Rich was our server we would definitely make trips to Kelsey's more frequently. If we could give a higher rating than 5 stars we would!
