A great place to watch a game or enjoy some family time. Featuring burgers and classic comfort food and drinks. Try out the 80/20 Malt Shoppe for some house made ice cream or a shake with your burger. Maybe relax on a porch swing for a bit. Grab a bourbon or local brew to enjoy at the indoor/outdoor bar.

Best burger I have ever eaten! We all agreed. Brought some out of state visitors here and they adored it. Brussel sprouts were delish too!

The food was excellent. We shared the beer cheese snd pretzel, it was perfect! Well seasoned and fresh. I had then 80 20 burger which was prepared exactly as requested m, flavor was incredible. My wife has the fish sandwich - we were both very satisfied! Had shakes to complete the night; Kaelin’s makes their ice cream in house. Shakes were top notch. Excellent all around. We will be back soon!

Well, this place was a real disappointment unfortunately. Service was extremely slow, they were busy and we were in no rush so that wasn’t a big deal. However, we ordered some food and drinks that never came out. Once our entrees came out, mine was wrong which was fixed immediately but everything was cold. I really don’t know how but both entrees, sides, everything was cold. We were going to try and ask our server to try and fix it, but no one ever came by to even check in, so we just ate what we were given. The chicken I ordered was extremely underwhelming, potatoes were lack luster but highly recommend the biscuits. Those tasted great and had great flavor. Also, the house salad was extremely spicy for some weird reason. If you don’t like a louder environment, you may want to either sit outside or avoid this at busier times.

Great Food and a wonderful local place for a business lunch. Only because we were there for a business lunch, the music seemed a little loud, but we managed just fine, and I did not complain at the time. Would highly recommend. The crispy brussel sprouts are AMAZING!

Not one to leave a negative review anywhere as I work in the service industry myself...but came for “brunch” that was on the website and there was no brunch menu available..even though there’s one online. Our server was clearly new so we cut them some slack on that point..but could answer none of our questions. Restaurant was also out of so much stuff and it was the beginning of shift. I had out of town friends with me and it was painfully awkward. I was really confused as I’ve heard good things about brunch at this place. Hoping it was a one time occurrence?

80/20 Kaelin's is always a solid spot. Solid burgers, great sides and apps (Brussels sprouts are a must), and always get a shake (boozy or regular), they are not to be missed.

We reserved a table with the idea that we could avoid any kind of wait. However it took over and well over an hour before our food arrived. Luckily the food was great. Not sure if there was a staff shortage going on but if there was they should have reduced the number of tables to serve. Better to wait outside than be stuck at your table.

Hostess was some what rude. Went to seat us and then had a friend show up. So we waited on her to socialize before we were sat. But didn’t let it ruin the night. Server was on top of it. Even let us know they were somewhat busy so the sooner we got our food in the better. Food was phenomenal

The appetizers of fried green tomatoes and Brussels sprouts were delicious. The entrees however unfortunately did not follow with the same level of flavor. The shrimp scampi had absolutely no flavor-asked for parmesan cheese and it did not help. The meatloaf has great reviews but not a fan. Sorry this was such a disappointment. Maybe the burger and fries would have been better but wanted to try something different.

Two menu items, Brussel sprouts & rib tips on the grilled cheese, were described as crispy! Not even close! The bacon on the burgers wasn’t cooked at all. The restaurant was extremely loud, considering the capacity was decreased. The floor was slick and dangerous all the way to the table!

Service was okay, but it was the night before mohers day, so I am sure they were busy. Staff had the dropsies and spilled water and ketchup all over the mother's day gifts. Accidents happen, but they didn't clean the water up well and we ended up with our feet in a puddle the whole time.
Mac and cheese and fries were incredible. Ribeye burger wasnt worth $15, but our bill overall was cheaper than I expected. Cocktail was awesome.
I will return to give it another chance on a slower day.
