Consistently good service and food. Ribeye melts in your mouth and there are tons other menu items that are great. The shrimp and grits is a town favorite. You can't do wrong by going here.

Having heard many positive comments on the food, menu, and atmosphere we chose The Chelsea for incoming visitors. What a mistake! The "seafood" bisque was void of everything but crab and cream; the Ribeye Steak (very pricey) was not hot, and could not be cut with a butcher knife-I worked for the three bites I took; and the "trash" potatoes came complete with gritty skins and not a hint of the garlic advertised (I scrub mine if I am leaving them in the mix). I ordered a House salad to have with my meal--it was wilted and warm and resembled the crab-grass in my front yard--too much dandelion (or was it daisy?). This "down-easter" will stick to the banks for her seafood (and steak) meals. As to the atmosphere--it was loud and I am sure too crowded downstairs to meet the fire code! Perhaps this is where the term "cozy" is overused! The poor Waiter had his rear-end in another table's faces just to deliver our cold dinners.

I have been to this restaurant many time when we lived in this area. It is very nice and has a unique menu. The food was always really good and staff were friendly and polite.

Great food! Good prices! The menu is eclectic with things like fried green tomatoes. We have always had wonderful service. There is plenty of seating and even a banquet hall. LOVE THIS PLACE!

I went here the night of my junior prom and did not have the most pleasant of experiences. Although it is very well situated, the staff seemed careless at times, tripping over carpet and whatnot. At one point, water and tea was spilled over my tuxedo without apology, prompting a visit to the restroom. The manager witnessed this and summarily fired the waiter who pulled the shenanigan while dismissing entirely the cost of my dinner. I would recommend this restaurant; simply put, I think I had what was merely an off-color experience.

You can always count on The Chelsea to be good. They have a varied lunch and dinner Continental menu, which changes frequently. The local owners (one is the chef) are almost always around and they, as well as the staff are attentive. The atmosphere is pleasing. Occasionally they try to put too many people at one table and put tables too close together, which somewhat inhibits dinner table conversation. They also offer a large room for groups...which is not easy to find in New Bern.
