We found Chelsea's through Google Maps on our way home from NYC. The place was pretty busy. There was nobody waiting in line ahead of us, but we still waited a few minutes before being seated. It seemed like there was only one waitress working, and people from the kitchen/bartender/hostess were helping out. Our waitress seemed very stressed out/frazzled, but... More

My girlfriend and I decided to give this place a shot with my brother and sister-in-law and for the record, we were generally pleased with the experience. The enthusiastic server recommended the spicy hot wings and I was not disappointed, as they were quite good and I was cheerfully supplied with extra bleu cheese. My girlfriend very much enjoyed her... More

I ordered basket of chicken per the overflowing basket of chicken pictured in the menu. Out came a basket of french fries and 3 tiny pcs of chicken. It was very good I will say. The waiter was informed only to tell me they usually give you 4 pcs. Lesson learned

Great ambiance, kinda like a cool neighborhood pub. Cold beers on tap, and the wings are the best in the area [with the possible exception of their 'sister' pub in Annandale].

Went here for lunch recently. There were French fries all over the floor when I arrived and they were there when I left an hour later. It wasn't like it was busy either. I actually saw the servers looking at the fries as they walked by them. Getting the check at the completion of the meal was a chore. Also... More

The servers are walking zombies. Noticed five French fries on the floor and the servers couldn't care less about cleaning up. Do they think this is acceptable ? Their famous chicken wings were so dried out. The pizza was below average. Our server was slow for serving our beverage and bringing our check. We will not be returning there any... More

There have been some negative comments of late, but I can't support them at all. Been coming here off and on over the years - through a few owners and can always depend on Chelseas for a tasty meal, cold beer (decent variety on tap), and friendly service. Since the place was packed on a Wednesday night, I'd guess the... More

You won't be disappointed with the appetizers, beer selection or the specials. Foods good, beers cold and decent wine is available too! Try the nachos, they rule! Have vegetarian options, and vegan too!

We used to eat here weekly for years. It came under new ownership several yrs back and we tried and I mean really tried to remain loyal to our local pub. It sucks...there is no nicer way to put it. All the longtime really good staff bailed. Now the service is either just OK or it's horrible in some epic... More
