Very good food. A little pricy, but good. Nice atmosphere, good service. Not hard to find a place to park downtown Chelsea.

The peach sangria was tasty. I had the fatoosh salad with grilled chicken. It was a nice size with tender chicken. The staff was friendly and fast. I highly recommend this place.

Just visited the Common Grill while on vacation in Michigan. The food and service was outstanding. We enjoyed the parmesan crusted walleye and grilled chicken sandwich. They have a nice wine selection. The only draw back is that it was very noisy.

We took a bus tour to Chelsea and the organizers chose this restaurant. They deserve a special "thank you" for this choice. We had good service and the whiteifish was excellently prepared. (Since it was prepaid my price rating is a guess)

There are many fish and protein options that a gluten-free meal would be available to anyone who needed it. Lots of salads, too.
