This was our first time here. My wife and I both ordered different hamburgers. They were quite delicious and big, and messy! We both loved the very crispy french fries! We topped off with two scoops of ice cream, which were great. Service was very attentive. Cleanliness and social distancing were great. All of the staff were masked up. I highly recommend.

I was able to get a last minute reservation @80/20 for Valentine's Day and I was very happy about it. Parking is located behind the restaurant with plenty of spaces. COVID precautions are in full effect and staff follows accordingly. There is plenty of seating downstairs as well as an additional area upstairs. They also have an outdoor area for warmer months. They had a special menu for Valentine's Day, my dear friend and I opted to go rogue and both ordered the ribeye burger and hot wings as our appetizer. For tasty beverages I ordered the blushing mule. It had grapefruit in it which was delicious. Our wings came out first and boy were they delicious. We got the Buffalo hot, perfect amount of spice, crunch, and flavor. The burgers were next, both cooked a perfect medium. The egg on top made it just perfect. Both onion rings and fries were our sides for the burgers, crispy and perfect. For dessert we split a scoop of there homemade red velvet ice cream. It was smooth, had pieces of cake and was sweetened just right. Overall, great experience, everything was tasty! I will definitely be back!

First time at Kaelins. Our service was excellent, appreciated the decent red wines on the menu and good selection of beer for my partner.
I had the short rib dinner, great flavor, maybe a bit dry and could have had a few more Brussels sprouts. Flavour was very good though. Partner had the patty melt and thought it was good other than a bit over cooked. Fries were good.
Would come back, good value.

This was our first visit to Kaelin's - we wen't for our Valentine's date. The service was good, the brussel sprouts were excellent and we enjoyed the diverse crowd. We talked to Bill, one of the owners and he gave us some great insights on how they transformed from a neighborhood pub/burger joint into a nice gastro pub. Definitely plan to come back in the future.

Chairs suck, burger was crack, good chance I'll go back. It is hard to find a really good burger, so they are winning that game. Meals are a little expensive for a burger and fries, but we did get the beer cheese pretzel, which was meh. They have their own parking lot which is a huge plus, little bit out of the way, but sometimes you just need that burger.

Great service and excellent food. We started with the Brussell sprouts, they were great but I will warn you the jam is serious. We both had a burger with fries and could not have been more satisfied!! The fries were super crunchy and the burgers melted in your mouth. We will go again!

Nice neighborhood gem. We had not been there in many, many years. Our reservation was for high top tables (only thing available on open table), but they gladly accommodated our request for regular seating. Started with an appetizer portion of Brussel Sprouts, which were very good and would have been enough for 4-6 people. We had a go box. Also, the server told us it was happy hour (before 6), and wine was 50% off. So we each got two large servings of wine. Nice selection of food, something for everyone. Food was very good, warm to hot, and reasonably priced. Service was excellent. The manage came by a number of times to make sure everything was ok. We will be going back.

This is the first time we have eaten here, but it certainly won't be the last time. The burgers were the best we have ever eaten. We also ordered the fried green tomatoes, which were excellent. The service was excellent. Our only complaint was that we were seated under an air vent which blew cold air on us. Moving over at our table seemed to solve it.

Was perfect for a casual date night for my boyfriend and I. Tables were spaced apart and everything was clean. The printer was in need of maintenance so the menus were hard to read but that was a minor inconvenience. Our drinks and food were delicious and came in a timely manner. I had the 80/20 and he had the classic. Both burgers were moist and flavorful and the fries were crisp. We enjoyed our evening and will be back.
