After you've exhausted Common Grill, 52 BBQ and Chelsea Grill why not try a cozy Irish Pub? A 6:00 arrival meant we walked into a full house. A 15 minute wait at the bar where we sipped on a couple of tap beers and we were seated. The waitstaff was friendly and helpful. The menu is pub style with mostly... More

Awesome ribs, burgers and fish and chips. Service was great and the atmosphere is enjoyable. Don't drink but they had a great selection of tap beer

We stopped here on our way to Detroit & really enjoyed our meal. We split a sandwich and it was plenty for both of us. We'd love to stop in again; it's not much of a detour off I-94 and is well worth the stop.

Went here based on trip advisor reviews and looking in the door. It's really a bar with tables and booths and seemed like a lively family friendly place. The menu (drinks and food) is HUGE and it was very difficult to make a decision. Our waitress was very friendly and gave us a couple tips. We were impressed with how... More

If you are not planning to go to Chelsea, it's worth a little detour, just off I-94 and not far from U of M. Charming little town with a vibrant downtown and nice old buildings and homes. Other than Cleary's there are a few other restaurants in town that were recommended to us. Clearly' offers solid pub fare served by... More

Stopped in for lunch while in town for a wedding. Place was not busy, with only 3 or 4 tables in use. We had a waitress who was short with us, rude, and tried to tell us it was her 2nd day, which is fine, but don't use that as an excuse to be rude! After putting in our order... More

We had an excellent meal! My husband ordered the frog legs and said there were wonderful. I had one of the daily specials - Maui Reuben and it was delicious!! Our waitress, Alex, was friendly and very attentive. We have been looking for a pub like this in our area but will definitely stop at Cleary's when we are in... More

Cleary's has one of the best bacon cheeseburgers I've ever had! The waitress I had was very friendly and efficient. Great restaurant!

Service was slow, we asked for a pitcher of water and glasses, there were 6 of us, we were given 5 glasses. two of us received the wrong food, 2... More
