They don't take reservations, so go early, or go late if you don't want to wait too long to be seated. The noise level when the place is full is slightly below that of a World Cup Soccer game, but putting that minor annoyance aside, this establishment puts out food of an amazing quality at a very fast pace. That... More

The Common Grill offers excellent food in a pleasant environment on Main Street in Chelsea. I have always found the food to be high quality, fresh and tasty.

It's an excellent restaurant for lunch or dinner.... More

How do you improve upon "perfection"? You don't. You just fix that napkin in its rightful place--and gorge great food. At THE COMMON GRILL!

The rolls are very good! It's always very neat in The Common Grill. Food is kind of pricey, some meals are not worth the money...$

My wife and I stopped in here for a nice anniversary lunch on a Thursday afternoon. No problem getting in and seated at lunch time. The staff is very friendly at the Common Grill and the waiter was more than accommodating. We had the Portobello Fries as an appetizer and they were amazing. I thought they were delicious, and I'm...

I have been dining at the Common Grill since it opened. It has and always will be my choice for mothers day and my birthday. The food is excellent and the service is great. When ever I want to go out for a special dinner the Common Grill is it!

A great gourmet restaurant you can visit in your shorts and tee-shirt. We enjoyed seafood that was perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. 5 star for sure.

Our lunch at the Common Grill was so wonderful, we have raved about it to everyone we have seen in the last week. Although I was initially a bit less than thrilled about the menu choices that were so heavy on fish and seafood offerings, the whitefish I ordered took away any doubts. It was Parmesan crusted and nicely prepared... More

Every time I was in Chelsea it was on a Monday and Chelsea Grill is closed. Finally got there on a Thursday night. I order steak and waiter was great in relaying my special needs of no sause or seasoning. Veggies good too. Nice menu.
