At Kelsey's we're proud to say we're hard-working and fun. In 1978, a few guys decided to bring the first roadhouse-inspired restaurant to Canada and opened the original Kelsey's in Oakville, Ontario. Today, at 70 locations and growing, we pride ourselves on continuing to offer Guests social dining experiences with fun craveable food and beverage offerings. If you're outgoing, hard-working and fun, then check out current Front of House, Heart of House (kitchen) and management role openings. At Kelsey's the opportunities for career growth are endless.
