Good selection of food at average pricing. Generally busy. Good service and food. Best to enter and park in the back.

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.

Good service with the standard pub food. My son thinks they have the best pizza. Limited seating, so sometimes its a bit difficult to get a seat during primetime

You can tell a good place when you see the owner so involved in the operation. He's at the door with a welcoming smile when you arrive. He stops by to see how you are doing once food is served. He helps the staff bus tables, too. His work ethic extends to the staff. They are extremely competent and friendly.... More

We stopped by here two weekends in a row on our way through town after going to the Michigan game. It's not too far off the highway. Despite being busy, we didn't have to wait too long to be seated either weekend. It's a little on the cozy side, so it felt a bit cramped. The staff were very friendly... More

I had the pan fried perch which was good with average french fries. My only complaint is that it was crowded and extremely noisy.

Thank Meg E
