Food was decent but the srrvice was definitely not up to par at all. Took 20 min for a glass of water. And when i asked a 2nd time he still made me wait another 5 min. Brought the beers before my water and after we ordered.

Celebrated my husband’s birthday at Kelsey’s with high school friends. It was a blast. The food was excellent and our server was outstanding. It was a very pleasant lunch and all 9 of us thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience with Kelsey’s.

The food was good and our reservation was available as soon as we let the hostess know we were there. The only negative was the dust that was accumulated on the large bottles of liquor and vases, etc that were in the baskets hanging over the bar. I wouldn't want to sit there because of the dirt and dust that needed to be cleaned from the overhead items. They really need to be cleaned/dusted on a consistent basis.

Went for Valentines Day, and we didn't expect much. Boy were we surprised!!

We ordered off the menu. I had the baby back ribs, husband had the Surf & Turf. Sides we ordered were Grilled asparagus, Beer Mack & Cheese.

Everything was delicious! The mac & cheese is made with sharp cheddar and bacon. The ribs came with a bit of cornbread. The surf & turf came with a small steak (filet) and three shrimp. Husband thought the steak to seafood ratio should be reversed. Less steak, more seafood.

We highly recommend Kelsey's!

We are locals of Temecula and decided to try Kelsey's for the first time on a Friday night with my husband and 15 year old son. I thought they would enjoy the sports bar with multiple TV's to watch. I made reservations same day and requested a booth, had to move our reservations back to 6:30pm and was easily accommodated. We were greeted by two very friendly hostesses and immediately escorted to our table/booth that had a Reserved sign on it for us. We had a male waiter that was very friendly and a Manager who came by to ask if we had been assisted while we were waiting for our meals. The restaurant was beautifully done with lots of wood tones, cushioned leather like seats and a fun bar as the focal point. My son ordered the bbq wings and steak fries, my husband ordered the jambalaya w/ the the Mojito flight and I ordered the bbq ribs w/ cornbread and Shirley Temple. All delicious. My picky husband and son raved over their dishes and husband said that every Mojito sampler was great. We decided to indulge in dessert after the dessert cart was rolled over to us. I had the churros which were hot and delicious with yummy raspberry and chocolate dipping sauces. My son had the cheesecake and husband the peach blueberry cobbler. All presented in fun unique dishes and were delicious as well (we each tasted the others). The entire meal came to $98. My husband gave me kudos for finding such a great restaurant. We will be coming back! Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Great Sports Bar! However, it can get very noisy. They also have a separate dining area outside the bar area if you want a quiet meal.

Seldom does one find in a casino a good restaurant that is not associated with a chain. However in Temecula on this large Indian Casino sits Kelsey's. A great sports pub with good food and enough of a selection to keep everyone happy. Certainly this is not high end gourmet fare, but it is good old fashion BBQ with all of the trimmings, along with a great bar. If in the area, even if you don't gamble I would suggest going in and eating here.

Service was very good-even with a trainee our waiter wasn’t slowed down. Most of the food (ribs, poppers, short ribs etc) was really good. The brisket salad had good ingredients but the lettuce was still wet and therefore watered down everything in the bowl.

We made a reservation for 16 at 7:45pm to celebrate my husbands 20th year in the Marine Corps. Keep in my we were not a rambunctious, younger group. The demographic of our party was a very eclectic, respectful upper 30's to mid-40's mostly couples. We received a confirmation call the morning of the was quick and to the point, but not friendly. At 7pm I received a call asking if we were still coming. The caller was very rude and acted like we were late for our reservation. I confirmed yes, we are coming and verified our reservation was for 7:45pm. The entire night out party was made to feel like we were an inconvenience. While our main waiter, Peter was by for the nicest of all the waiters there. He is the only employee there to smile the whole evening. Our party had to go to the bar numerous times to get drinks because service was so slow. Our party kept commenting on the rudeness of the service there and how unwelcome they all felt. While the room for larger parties is very nice and created and nice environment for us and the food was good, for service is such a disappointment.

The food and service were good. I was hesitant at first after reading some reviews about the service, but I told myself I have to give it a try and see for myself. I'm glad I did because they have good food and the service was pretty good as well. We did not wait that long for our food as some of the reviews I read. The waitress we had was good and attentive.

I had a 6:00 p.m. reservation and was able to move it to 7:00 p.m. without a problem. I guess because it's Sunday. It wasn't busy at all. I will definitely come back.

We went here for my birthday dinner. We had a group of 16. They were ready and waiting for us when we showed up. We were seated immediately. I have an 8 year old son and we had family ranging from two years old to 60. This place had something for all of us ! Kids were happy , the wife's were happy and my birthday was amazing! Great beer selection ! The service was truly amazing! Our server was a girl named kaily(spelling may very) with a personality that was out of this world! She entertained the kids and the adults. I would recommend this place for pretty much anything from casual dinner to big birthday party's! It was so good we went back the next because we were staying at the hotel. I can't wait to go back !!!

I suggested this place and our service was aweful and food was badly prepared. First off the waitress forgot one of our salads. This would not have been an issue if she ever came back to check on us. Next a few of us ordered burgers. All of us orders them medium and they all came out well done. My son ordered a cheese pizza and it came out cold and stale. We would have said something right away but we were hungry after waiting just under an hour for our food. We called the manager over and offered to remake food. We asked for chicken nuggets for my son and when he got it, he bit into a piece of over cooked shrimp. Now our waitress shows up and offer us free dessert which they forgot to bring us. They did discount our bill, but not enough to make me go back and definitely not recommend to friends and family.

Unfortunately I did not have a good experience. I have no complaints about our server...he was attentive and professional. However what was suppose to be a positive dining experience was anything but. Because the steak dish was 14 oz, we ordered 2 steak dinners, with a white bourbon sauce to split amongst 3 people. We ordered both steaks medium rare. The steaks we received were so rare (red meat with a cold center) that even our server noticed they were not cooked as ordered as soon as we made the first cut into them. He took them back to be cooked a little longer. The manager came over and apologized and asked if we wanted two new steaks. We told him that would not be necessary and to just instruct the kitchen to cook them medium rare. When the steaks were returned to us they cooked the sauce off and did not replace it with more sauce. We also no longer had the same appetite and left a good portion of our steak behind (we were visiting from out of town and staying at a hotel so we could not ask for a doggy bag). We feel management should have offered to take one of the dinners off the bill or st the very least offer a free dessert or not charge for the one round of drinks that we had. Needless to say the birthday celebration that I had planned for my friend was ruined as the whole experience put a damper on everyone's mood not to mention paying $120.00 (before tip) for a meal we were unable to enjoy. I will not be returning to this establishment nor will I recommend it to my friends.

This was a birthday celebration that I was hosting for my dau and the RSVP's became quite inaccurate at the end. We only had 7 guests instead of 10 and were still charged 20% gratuity. Now ordinarily I would just shrug it off to bad luck, but 20% was also applied to the already over the top charge of $20 to open a bottle of champagne...we had two...plus the fact I purchased a birthday cake there to save on the $3.50 per person slice charge if we brought our own. I could have sliced and served it myself for free! The cake was no where near as good as the cake I would have purchased, but the cost was prohibitive. So I ended up paying a 20% service/gratuity on the entire bill.

I felt like the service was a little slow. I don't think that it was the servers fault but it was still too slow. We had a large party and I feel that it is ridiculous that you do not split checks. I am also very disappointed that i had put in the notes that it was for a surprise party ant when I came with the birthday boy the hostess ruined the surprise by saying... "they're upstairs!" I was very upset about that!!! We cam and spent a lot of money on food and drinks to make this night a special night and I just don't feel like it turned out as good as it should have!!
