I’d been here before. It was good then but is even better now that the owner is using locally-sourced food and items like grass-fed beef and their own home-grown vegetables. On this visit, I had the 6 oz. burger made with grass-fed beef. It came with ripple potato chips and AWESOME fresh, LOCALLY-MADE PICKLE CHIPS. All for $5.50 + 55... More

We stopped here as we were wet and cold from camping and wanted a hot breakfast. Great service, great food, great prices!

We were very pleased to have found the Chelsea Royal Diner. It isn't fancy, but the food is very good. Since it was lunch, we had sandwiches,maple bbq chicken and a hamburger. Both were excellent.

After reading all the reviews about this diner, we figured we give it a shot considering the lack of breakfast spots on our way back home. Although the food was fine, nothing special that other diners couldn't serve, the actual environment was disgusting. Filthy floors, dirty tables, cobwebs hanging above our heads. I even saw the waitress using her hands... More

Our go to eatery when visiting family in the area. Good, friendly and consistent. Breakfast never disappoints. Dinner - go for the meat dishes which tend to be more successful than fish. Chicken and beef were cooked to order but the swordfish was overcooked and dry.

We happened upon this adorable diner on our cross country trip and what a pleasant surprise! Not only is it charming and a fun place to eat, but the waitresses are quite friendly and the food is great! Portions are a decent size and quite tasty….although one of my granddaughters did not care for the bison burger. We had hoped... More

Stumped as to where to get breakfast in the area, we pulled to the side of the road and asked some local folks "where they would eat breakfast?" Their response: "hands down, the Royal Diner!!!" It was about a 10 - 15 minute drive from the downtown area but, oh so worth it!!! If you're looking for crystal stemware and... More

Chelsea Royal Diner is one of those old-time, authentic diner experiences. The atmosphere is extremely casual, but the food is awesome...really awesome. Home-baked breads, fresh eggs, delicious baked rolls, etc. The French toast is outstanding and all the omelets are yummy. However...the service can if iffy. All the servers are busy, but most make time to ensure you have what... More

I live in MA and needed to venture to VT. A wonderful foodie friend that frequents VT constantly highly recommended the Chelsea Royal Diner. Well let me tell you, this was one of the best meals I EVER had in my entire life. I had the Thursday Blue Plate Special of Chicken Fried Pork. I received three large pieces of... More

If you're a fan of franchise restaurant stay away from here. This is an old fashioned diner with a large menu, good food, and a down-to-earth attentive staff. There aren't many places like this around anymore. On occasion, I travel from Concord NH to Albany NY and I hope that I'll be in West Battleboro at about meal time. I... More
