AN OASIS

Traveling all day, weary, thirsty and hungry, we found Cleary's in the center of downtown Chelsea. Great food and drink. The perch was light and tasty. The Stromboli could feed a family of four. Very atmospheric beginning with the pressed tin ceiling. Our waitress was charming and helpful. If we... read more

Very atmospheric beginning with the pressed tin ceiling. Our waitress was charming and helpful. If we lived here we'd visit weekly.

We love this place! If you're looking for a quiet romantic dinner, don't stop. But if you're looking for a place with a HUGE menu, music and an upbeat atmosphere, walk in the door. This is a bustling restaurant with good pub food. My husband and I both had fish dishes (baked cod and fried perch) and were excellent. Our... More

While staying in Chelsea we ate dinner at Cleary's. We had a large group of 18 on Sunday. No one would help us out but Cleary's said come on down we will work it out. They did and it was perfect. Food was wonderful, service was so good, and they split the checks without any trouble. Very helpful place.

Like many, we stumbled in here when the Common Grill across the street was full. What a pleasant surprise! Good food, pleasant atmosphere and very friendly staff. Besides the typical pub food, they have a menu insert with homemade daily specials--many of which are excellent. This has become a destination lunch spot for my girlfriends and I whenever we meet...

Loved the French dip sandwich as well as the wine selection. We did the pub after attending the theatre. Great atmosphere and very attentive staff.

Easy access off the street or from the parking lot behind the building. Great food at great prices. I visited multiple times and had the taco salad and shrimp and feta pizza. Delicious food! There are tv screens so you can watch sports but the deco isn't screaming sports pub. They have a nice bar and the staff are friendly... More

Visited Chelsea for the Thursday sight and sound program and decided in arrive early for dinner. We chose the Irish Pub and were happy we did. It is a casual place and gets busy. We were lucky to get a table. I ordered the perch dinner and it was the best I have had recently at a good value $13.99.... More

We were walking around Chelsea biding our time before dinner across the street and the Common Grill. We were both a wee bit parched from walking and decided to stop for a beer. It was in the middle of a Sunday afternoon (following the 4th of July Holiday) so the place wasn't hopping. While we didn't order any food, the... More

Cleary's is something of a lost breed it seems; its a perfectly welcoming setting, a small pub with an unexpectedly good menu in a small town. Walk in to the pub and on weekends you'll be greeted with live music in a relatively intimate environment that just feels comfortable. Sure, the tables can be a little close together but no... More

While this might not have been the BEST meal I've ever had in a restaurant, it is by far the BEST meal in a Pub! Their pineapple & Mozzarella hamburger is to die for. Fixed exactly how I ordered it. I was just a little disappointed with the size of the side of French fries but the juiciness of the... More
