My husband and I experienced this pub a few years back on St. Pattys Day. It was packed. Filled with fun, celebration, and beer. Although, our most recent visit on Sept 19, 2014 was a weeknight at 11:30. There were a few groups of younger clientel and a few regulars. We ordered a corned beef sandwhich off the menu and...

I read every review on this page and cannot understand why some expect the Ritz when booking there. If you are looking for quaint Victorian style atmosphere, you will find it here. There is a reason that there is no TV or air conditioning. The Inn and Pub represent the past, not the now. My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed... More

... and an hour and a half later I left. Not before making several new friends and realizing when I'm back in Atlantic City I have a go to bar. Servers were very friendly and so were the local patrons. Didn't have a chance to sample the food but can't be all that bad right? Just remember to take cash.

I needed a base to explore Atlantic city and Wildwood boardwalks. The Chelsea worked out well..decent rooms, good price, good location..I took my bike so I was able to experience the full Boardwalk experience...the surfers, the carnival of Wildwood and the casinos of Atlantic City...the Chelsea is 50 meters from the Tropicanna side door and 150 meters from the boardwalk/beach....

Decent food, good beer, good service, but I found myself in a bind because they didn't take credit cards. I never carry cash, even on vacation. Or very little. But the menu was interesting. We tried many of the plates. Not very expensive, lots of nice tastes and textures. Everyone enjoyed the food. But this is a pub, do not... More

Unless you could care less about where you sleep and the conditions of your room, DON'T STAY HERE! The employees are very nice but the "Inn" is really a flophouse. When we entered our room (smaller than a walk-in closet) it smelled musty & was so hot (no A/C). 30 year old wallpaper was peeling from the walls. The bathroom... More

If you're looking for a pub that is and resembles something out of Ireland, do not look for it here at the Irish Pub and Inn. It may have the name and sell some trinkets but that's as far as it goes. They lacked some of the most common pub grub food, you'd fine in an Irish Pub. Fish and... More

This place is an OK place to go for a relatively cheap/relatively nice meal. It's not as expensive (nor as good) as really high-end restaurants in the casinos but not as crappy/quick as boardwalk food. It's nicely in the middle, with friendly service and a fun/bar atmosphere. We came here for dinner on a Sunday. Most sandwich/platters are from $7-10,... More

Where are a local can feel like a local with a dive filled without low rent locals. Cheap drinks and food. Parking. Crap neighborhood. Be careful if you walk off boardwalk. Bartenders are good too. Best irish car bombs in city.
