CASH ONLY. The food is very good. Terrific wait staff. We had black Angus burgers, fries, home made ice cream & Carrot cake. Everything was very good! We go here whenever we are passing through!

Wanting to avoid chains, we ate here based on a book called "Road Food" that we bought online. Locals were plenty and very friendly. Waitstaff also friendly. My wife recommends meatloaf. I had a huge meal of veal parmigiana, and I mean huge. Cash only here. Very casual dress. Ate at 5 on a Friday night. Didn't have to wait.... More

We wanted to be seated as one of us was a surprise for the other two. This was a Tuesday night after 7 and the place was half empty. No seating as the... More

It was busy, but we were seated after only a short wait. The service was prompt and efficient. I though the food selection was very... More

If you want to go where the locals go - one of the things we like to do) this is the place to go. Doesn't look like much from the outside and it is cash only but the decor and atmosphere is pure country local. The food is excellent ( which is almost a given when you go where the... More

We stopped here twice during our vacation last week and love it. Food is great, fresh and organic beef. Service is good - people are friendly. Real diner atmosphere.

The best ingredients cooked with love and served by great people. We will be back. Thanks to the cooks as well as the wait staff. This place really fills up quickly but it does not affect quality or service.

My Uncle & his partner live right up the road from the Chelsea Royal Diner, and they visit frequently for breakfast and lunch, as well as for their amazing ice cream stand out front. On our trip this past weekend we visited for dinner with my Uncle, and a friend of my wife and her husband and two kids (5&3... More
