I travel to this delightful town once a year and Cleary's is always a must stop for their great food. No matter what you order or where you sit it is always a delight from a food and atmosphere standpoint but get there early. They fill up fast. This year is was the blackened salmon & linguine. I was disappointed... More

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.

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.

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
