I like Chelsea's. The service is always better than average and the setting is really nice for a thing such as a first date or just dinner with friends. It has a varied menu that will meet most people's particular need for something American. If...More

This restaurant is in a very nice neighborhood and they valet park. They take no reservations but it has a nice bar if you need to wait. The specials were excellent and the service was good. One of the better restaurants in Phoenix

I wish that I had taken a picture, as it would tell the story. Howie burger with lettuce was ordered. Burger was bsked, not grilled and onions weren't carmelized, but pickled! Should have driven thru any fast food joint for a quarter of the price.

Great food, good service, friendly staff. Have patio dining (a bit quieter than in main dining area). Unfortunately they do not take reservations, so you might be in for a wait at this popular restaurant.

Have been here many times. Can always rely on a very good meal. Great outdoor seating. Unfortunately doesn't take reservations so I'm subtracting a star. I'd get there early on weekends as it can get crowded

I think it is as good as the main restaurants. Definitely better than I would have expected at an airport.

Chelsea's is 4.9 miles from Celebrity Theatre. Chelsea's is just N. of Camelback on 40th Street. To get to Celebrity just turn right on Camelback and left on 32nd Street. Depending on the time of day it should take no more... More
