Was in New Bern for the first time, on business. Both the hotel and client recommended The Chelsea as the #1 spot to hit first. Our team of 7 walked over from the hotel - restaurant is easily located. Everyone shared and enjoyed appetizers: pulled pork potato skins, bacon wrapped scallops, fried green tomatoes. I also ordered a starter of the Cream of Crab soup. All starters were incredible. My entrée was the shrimp and grits, a very popular menu item judging by the slogan displayed on the shirts being worn by staff. Unbelievably delicious. Everyone at the table had a wonderful experience - portions are plentiful and food is truly southern - rich and hearty. Atmosphere and service was top notch. If you like southern food and non-chain restaurants, this is the place. Plenty of options, and features seafood, steak, chicken, and pork. Prices very reasonable - high end menu for mid-range price.

We always eat at the Chelsea when we visit New Bern. The food is always good. Best to go when it's "not peak" lunch and/or dinner time. Reasonable prices.

The food and service is great! It is located downtown on Middle Street. It is easy to find and parking is easy.

Best Shrimp and Grits I ever had! My wife got the filet and crab cakes on special and said the crab cakes compared with Charleston, SC... This place was a find. We will be back.

The crab cake according to my fellow travelers was delicious, almost all crab meat. I am allergic to crab and MJ's restaurant refused to serve me, but evidently The Chelsea knows how to keep their kitchen clean. My steak and tempura asparagus was delicious. Will return their often when In New Bern.
