Chelsea's on Thornton

Every summer my cousin comes South to visit and we always meet with aunts and cousins at a local tearoom, usually Beyond the Garden Gate in Ooltewah. This year it was closed for the week of the 4th, so we tried Chelsea's. The setting is lovely. We were a little disappointed with the food. There... read more

Quaint little place in Dalton Ga. You can have tea, salads, muffins etc and also shop. This business is located in a old homestead house and you can eat inside or outside. Dress nice when you go there because its a nice little quaint place.

Chelsea's is the kind of place to go when you want a quiet place to talk over lunch without the hustle and bustle of big chain restaurants. They have very good soups, sandwiches, and salads. It is in an old two story house with large columns that suggests real southern charm. We go several times a month and I always... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our luncheon. Good service. Just the right amount of helpfulness. Price range 10-30. Not far from I-75. The salad sampler I had was delicious. Good tea.

Joined girl friends here for lunch; it is a great girly tea place. Salads or soup and sandwich or quiches. We were all chattering away, and they were wonderful to let us. Great ambiance. Lovely presentations of delicious food. Reasonable prices. Dress a little up: linen over cotton, woven over knitted. Because I had traveling to do after, I dressed... More

This is an excellent place for an elegant lunch. Everything on the menu is a hit. Most days they also offer a special. Please save room for dessert because its worth it!! Take home part of your lunch as not to miss the dessert. Excellent setting and the owner is wonderful!!! Don't miss this great place!!

I love the food here. The salad sampler is a little of everything and I love all of it. I came home and tried to duplicate the strawberry pretzel salad because it is that good. The family that owns it is very nice, came over and spoke to our table. There is nothing to dislike! Worth the 10 min drive... More

I have eaten here for lunch. This is a quaint place to eat. It is located in Dalton in a old historic looking house. You need to be nicely dressed to eat there (in my opinion). A nice little place to take your girlfriends for a tea party etc. They also sell candles, clothes and other things.

My Red Hat chapter had lunch at Chelsea's on Thornton in Dalton, Georgia, today. The food was quite good but the service lacked our approval. The owner and another waitress were very nice but the main waitress for our table of seven (a tall, thin young woman) was awful! Our table was set with tiny muffins, which we ate before... More

My husband took me here this month for my birthday. Then he took me upstairs to the spa and treated me to a European mini facial. WONDERFUL--SO RELAXING!!
