St. Louis–style ribs, chicken and waffles, red velvet cake—plenty of soul-food staples show up on the menu at Kelsey's. But home-cooked as these dishes may taste, there's no hint of a grandmother's kitchen about the ultra-sleek, softly lit dining room. Instead, Kelsey's is modeled after the classic supper clubs of another era, with generously but elegantly plated seafood, steaks, and chops topping white-draped tables. (Of these, Atlantic City Weekly had special praise for the "exquisitely seasoned" shrimp and ribs that were "awesome, smoky, sticky, and wet.") If you visit on the weekend, there's live music, too, typically jazz or R&B.
But despite the upscale ambience, Kelsey's is, in fact, a family affair. Kelsey Jackson is the chef and his wife Kim the baker and business expert, and at least one of their children has caught the cooking bug as well, currently attending culinary school after capturing a rare apron-wearing spider in the wild.
