The Chelsea restaurant has eat upstairs or down. Food selections are excellent for most diets. A window table upstairs provides good views while enjoying a delicious meal.

Sam was our waiter,and brewed fresh decaf coffee. Our vegetarian meal with homemade chips was so tasty. My husband wanted another plate of manicotti!

Election night isn't the best to dine out! Several large parties were underway. Service was pleasant but a little slow. I choose a fish dish that I wasn't familiar with and I was disappointed! Fish was very bland and not served at the best temperature. The server and the owner wanted to please and went above the call of duty... More

We decided on trying the Chelsea for my birthday dinner. It turned out to be a great choice. For appetizers we had fried green tomatoes, southern BBQ style shrimp and grits with bacon and Krispy calamari with their version of a sweet pepper Thai dipping sauce. For the salad course we had poached pear, possibly the best salad I've ever... More

Our friends have been bragging about this place so we had to give it a try. We went for lunch with friends and had Chicken Brochette, Philly Cheese on Pita, Crab Cake and a Shrimp and Grits. It's been a long time since we've been out with friends when everyone really enjoyed what they ordered. This restaurant would fit in,... More

Passing through New Bern and checked our Trip Advisor ratings and decided to give this a try. We were not disappointed. There were 4 of us and we all ordered something different. The Brisket sandwich was a tiny bit dry but very flavorful. The rueben sandwich was also just a bit dry but just the right size, rather toasted, could... More

Good food but the worst service I've ever had in a restaurant. It was as though they were unprepared for guests. Had to request basic items( flatware, bread, beverage refills) over and over before we finally got them.

Stopped in on our way to Willmington. A cute little town with a decided Alps tone to it. The Chelsea is a quaint little place in the historic downtown section that is definitely worth your time. Great service and the shrimp and grits were amazing. Ample lunch portions and reasonably priced. If ever back, I will definitely stop in again!
