We enjoyed the salmon sandwich and tuna melt. Completed with a delicious apple strudel with pure vanilla ice cream and a fresh key lime pie. The place is clean with a quaint butcher blocks for tables. Ceiling is the old fashioned gold plated antique. Carpeting on floor will be due to replace soon. Our waitress was spot on with smiley,...

While starting our vacation early, my wife and I stopped for the night in Chelsea, MI. We asked the young man at the front desk of The Comfort Inn where we could eat and he suggested Cleary's. What a nice surprise. First, the downtown community of Chelsea is charming. Second, Cleary's was nice and inviting. Our server/bartender was pleasant and... More

My husband and I arrived in Chelsea prior to check in at the Chelsea House and a Pub sounded like a winner. Cleary's was indeed a winner! There burgers and service will not disappoint!

After many moons of dining at Cleary's at uneven-at-best results the last straw was finding a creature in my dinner salad. Worse, I got shrug from the manager after pointing it out, as in "gee, we were hoping you didn't notice..." we have not been back since and have discouraged others from going. Another reviewer noted that the drinks were... More

Casual menu and great atmosphere for lunch. It gets crowded but service was still great. Full bar provides great place to hang even if you are not looking for a meal.

This was a return visit for us. The first time a good time and good food. Unfortunately, this return trip didn't meet our expectations. The staff was helpful and friendly but the food was a disappointment. Corn beef was tough and dry. I tried something totally different, a burrito, the ends of the burrito were hard and couldn't be cut... More

I stopped here because of where I parked. I came in the back entrance and the place was PACKED!! this surprised me considering it was a Wednesday evening. I ended up sitting at the bar, which worked out because the bar tender was great but because it's so small and I was at the end of the bar servers/customers kept... More

Went to Cleary's for lunch today and ended up walking out. We were seated and given menus, but 15 minutes later we still hadn't seen a waitress. A nearby table was cleared, 2 waitresses were making silverware packets, a couple was shown to the cleared table and their order was taken. We got up, I let the bartender know we... More

A girlfriend and I met on our way home from work. I asked my very nice waitress if they make a good margaritas and she said yes so we both ordered one. It came in a nice size glass which I liked but it was all ice and sweet N sour mix. We were not even sure if it had... More
