First, get there early. It is always busy after 6pm, but there is a reason. The staff is amazing. Fast, accurate and attentive. If I had to give a con, the menu options are a bit overwhelming, it usually takes me 10-15 minutes just to decide. I try something different every time and have never been disappointed.

I've gone here for lunch and dinner and the food is always awesome. The sweet potato fries and my favorite along with their fish and burgers.

It was a lucky pick after touring the Jiffy Mix Factory in Chelsea. Food and service was great. Decor very Irish/american/Eclectic. Menu had everything we were looking for. Good follow-up by waitress insuring that we were satisfied and well taken care of.

Went to this pub after seeing a play at The Purple Rose Theater. The staff were very friendly and the prices very reasonable. I had the molasses brown sugar burger. It was the best burger ever!!!! Highly recommend this place in downtown Chelsea.

I've been here a few times now, the food and the service has been consistently good. I'm not a pickle person, never thought I'd be into fried pickles until I tried it. Now I get it every time we come in. Beer battered and right out of fryer, the combination with ranch dressing dip somehow works unconventionally. My chicken wrap... More

This is a wonderful small pub that has excellent food. The cook is create and their are specials that are tasty and delightful. The only drawback is the place is very small and sometimes the wait times are very long with no place to sit while waiting.

First time at Cleary's. nice pub atmosphere. The steak sandwich was one of the best we've had. Reasonably priced. Great service. Worth a trip to the beautiful town of Chelsea. Grandson had a hamburger and fries. He liked hamburger, and we all liked the fries.

Thank Fastphilad
