Tommy Kelsey (a.k.a. Tommy Kelcy), or simply "Kelsey", was the bartender / owner of Kelcy's Bar on All in the Family from seasons 1-8.

Veteran character actor Bob Hastings originally played the character, whose last name was spelled "Kelcy" in the first season before it became "Kelsey" in seasons 2 through 6 of All in the Family. Hastings made his last appearance in season 6. Veteran TV character actor Brendan Dillon also made four appearances as Kelsey in Seasons 2 and 3.

The character re-appears once more in season 8 in the season-opening, two-part episode "Archie Gets the Business" (Season 8, episode 1, part 1), with veteran actor Frank Maxwell assuming the role of "Kelcy". In that episode, Kelcy (in declining health) decides to retire and sell the bar to the first taker: Archie.
