My friend and I wanted brunch outside to enjoy the sun. I suggested Chelsea Tavern and she was game. She and I thoroughly enjoyed our food and the sun. We'll be back for sure.
Quinoa salad (add the salmon) is my go-to favorite and the Kennett mushroom soup was Delicious! Always a solid spot for any meal or just a great hangout. Joe & his team are always on it, and they're incredible community team players.
Good pub food, even better beer menu
Wanted to find a great place for Easter Brunch and Chelsea’s Tavern delivered.
Just OK Easter Brunch. The pancakes were nearly tasteless and they don't use real maple syrup. The sausages and bacon were good however. My wife's eggs Benedict had rubbery eggs . We won't be back for Brunch but may stick to dinner which is usually good. That is when they lift the automatic 20% service charge "due to COVID 19". Service didn't rate a 20% tip and unless you read the fine print on the check you wouldn't know it was there.
Always great service and food. It's our favorite go to place!
One of our favorite go to restaurants. Always great food and service. They always have a great beer selection.
By far our top 3 place in Wilmington. Amazing selection of beers, every server knows the menu and upsells well when there’s a great deal going. Didn’t get pizza this trip but definitely a hidden gem for pizza!
Great brunch!! Eggs Benedict with filet straps. Great idea. We will be back.
I went into this place in what turned out to be a very dicey neighborhood (There were 4 police officers outside) while my husband parked. I left my mask in the car. The owner was at the bar of this very dark, ugly restaurant (not like photos on web). He immediately asked about my mask (never had that happen before) in a very hostile way. I explained I left it in car. I then remembered my husband didn't have his cell. The guy saiid I had to have it right away & he had them. That's typical of all restaurants I've been in for the last yr. Then, he made me pay $1.00. He walked away. I went to put on the mask, I'm 5ft 3in.
it didn't cover my face. Additionally, it didn't have any way to attach except for two little paper holes. I left.
The Chelsea Cheeseburger was outstanding. The 8oz. Hereford Beef Patty with Beer-Braised Onions and White Cheddar was served on Brioche Bun. It was delicious.
The Crispy Mac & Cheese Bites with q
Marinara Dipping Sauce was delicious.
The Cheese Pizza with Plum Tomato Sauce and Mozzarella Cheese was wonderful.
I definitely will go back soon.
We had such a great time. COVID 19 protocols were in place and we felt safe while dining out.
Great service and great food! Blackened Ribeye sandwich was delicious! Highly recommend!
Everything that this restaurant was impeccable from the waitresses to the chef
The food at Chelsea Tavern has always been outstanding and a great value for the price. Add to that the attentive and friendly service along with 30 craft beers on tap (with many more in bottles) and you might wonder why you aren't here more often. Also, Chelsea's dining room is one of the better Covid-19 dining set ups I have seen.
Food was outstanding, as usual. Could not beat the service. Wonderful valentine’s special!
The meal was a good size portion and had very good flavors. Would go again if in the area and there was a nice selection of drinks.
First time there, my server was great...... food was better than I expected for a tavern.
Good selection of diner style food available and decent portions / good value. Super friendly service a differentiator. Good option if you are in the downtown area.
Great restaurant! Staff is super friendly and the pizza is my favorite in town.
We went for my daughters birthday and it was awesome. The staff was friendly, the food was delicious with generous portions, and the waitress was awesome and made sure we never had an empty glass .. she even surprised my daughter with a birthday surprise. We will be back for sure!
Always a great meal! Hopefully things will become more normal this year and our trips to Chelsea Tavern more frequent
Some of the best Thai Chili Wings I have ever had. Overall, great food and service.
Thank you for letting me pre-order before arriving.
Great beer selection. Food was great. Seated quickly.
Everything was DELICIOUS, and if you love brownies, probably the best I’ve ever had
First time visiting and we will plan to go back! We ate early so pretty much had the dining room to ourselves- so felt very safe with covid. Even when some other parties arrived they had the tables spaced out well.
The food exceeded our expectations. The menu has a wide selections of sandwiches, salads and full meals. I had a pizza with goat cheese, mushrooms and cherry tomatoes which was great. Split the crab dip which was plentiful- if I could change anything it would be to switch out the crustini and add carrots/celery to be a bit healthier and more attractive to a wider swath of people.
Beers were great- excellent variety.
We LOVE Chelsea Tavern! Trio fries are amazing and so are their gameday specials. Never walked away unsatisfied.
Lovely Sunday lunch on sunny deck. Appreciate your innovation with deck, fencing, lights. Food was creative & fabulous. Waitress may have been letting us linger a little but we had work to get back to. When known,- she was very pleasant & eased our transition ! THANK YOU Chelsea Tavern for doing so well!
Great place for brunch. They also have restaurant week menus available for lunch and dinner. The crepes are also amazing! Will definitely come back soon!
Server was really nice and the outdoor seating was very cute!
The food is always good at Chelsea. I had the mushroom pizza, and it was absolutely delicious - best pizza I've had in some time. The service was attentive without making us feel rushed. COVID protocol was appropriate and we felt very safe eating inside the restaurant.
We went for lunch outside and food, service and atmosphere nice. The outside dining is off street so not crowded or loud. The crab dip was delicious and crab nachos were a large size. Going to go again.
Ate on the side patio and it felt really private, safe and fun. We had a great waiter who gave good recommendations and had a great sense of humor. We had the brussels sprouts as an appetizer. They are great. They have a beer and cheddar sauce instead of the normal balsamic and/or olive oil. Pizza my friend had was great; Kennett mushroom was delicious. I had the blackened rib eye. I enjoyed it but would try the brisket next time. Another friend had a fish special that she enjoyed. They also have a great drink menu; you want it; they got it. And they have stuff you haven't tried before if you are feeling adventurous. Reasonably priced and wish I had looked at the desserts!
Really enjoyed our visit and will be back.
Had a wonderful outdoor brunch. Everyone was raving about the bananas foster french toast! Beautiful part of the city as well.
Requested & obtained a table outside. Our waiter was attentive, reviewed the specials with us, provided good food & beverage recommendations, followed up several times to make sure we were enjoying our experience & to if there is anything else we needed. We really liked our dinner & would definitely go back.
Food all overcooked. Drink not delivered.
Great atmosphere but the risotto that came with my meal was bland and I didn't eat it. I told the waitress and she knew exactly what I was talking about but didn't offer an alternative.
