Quite a good place to eat and chat with friends. Can't get too excited about fish in the Midwest but our local friends order it here. A seafood risotto was just passing and very skimpy for this type of dish. A decent wine list and good service.

It's out a bit, if you're coming from the metro Detroit area but, well worth the drive if you have an afternoon to spare. This place has a almost California feel, in the sweet town of Chelsea, Michigan, and you can't help but feel a bit transported as you walk in the door. There was a bit of a wait... More

It was a busy Saturday in Chelsea. I was still able to score a table for one and enjoy a tasty lunch of seafood chowder and mussels. This restaurant offers creative menu items along with really yummy rolls w/herb butter. Worth the wait.

Wonderful menu !!! We have eaten there many times and it is always excellent. Sunday Brunch is delicious, always a great place to take guests from out of town. The staff are friendly and very knowledgeable about their menu.

For nearly 25 years Chef Craig Common has excelled in every phase of running a high quality restaurant; outstanding entrees, exquisite service and keeping a pleasing blend of old favorites and new things to try. Although the menu mainly features a tempting variety of seafoods, our latest meal was a marinated flank steak. Truly exceptional. Your main difficulty will be... More

I love eating at the common grill when I am in Chelsea. It is an upscale restaurant with a casual atmosphere (a little tight and a little loud, but comfortable). They do not take reservations but have call ahead seating. The waitstaff was helpful with suggestions on ordering. Our food was delicious, we both had fish and both thoroughly enjoyed... More

I went to the common grill on a Sunday for lunch with my daughters prior to seeing a play at the purple rose theather. We all enjoyed every thing that we ordered. Looking forward to going there again the next time we are in chelsea.

Excellent food. We had seafood risotto, whitefish, crab cakes and turkey burger, all of which were really tasty. The chocolate croissant bread pudding was exceptional. Prices seemed a little high initially, but the entree price includes a very good salad and delicious bread rolls which makes it more reasonable. Service was good and prompt. Our only negative is that it... More
