“More Great Southern Specialties to enjoy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

Having a late dinner we shared and appetizer and an entree.. and found them both fabulous. Scallops and Grits we spectacular.... The Shrimp was done perfectly... not over done like is often the case. Very comfortable, reasonable and nice wines b y the glass.

The Chelsea has some excellent food. I had some shrimp and grits. I definitely enjoyed the dish. And will return to the restaurant next time we are in New Bern.

“Great Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

Traveling with a family of 9. Made a reservation for 6:30 but arrived an hour early and they welcomed us in with no problem. We are from the north and never tried the shrimp & grits appetizer, so we ordered two. We all loved it. All of the meals were delicious with large portions. The waiter was attentive and very friendly. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

The food was absolutely delicious...I had shrimp and grits that are to die for...the mashed potatoes were excellent. The chocolate cheesecake was wonderful. I can think of no criticism. The ambience was great as well. Totally great experience

“Monday night crowd”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014 via mobile

We are a family of 9 traveling together and made a reservation for 6:30pm but we arrived an hour early but it was no problem for them to seat us. We are northerns that have never tried the shrimp and grits so we ordered 2 of the appetizers of the barbecued shrimp and grits. We all thought it was delicious! I had the red eyed shrimp dish, others ordered the cheesecake , paella & one steak . All meals were delicious! We were too full for dessert. Our waiter was knowledgeable about the dishes and was very attentive. We would definitely recommend this place and would go again without hesitation.
