Chelsea Tavern is a high energy, upscale casual restaurant & bar located in the heart of Wilmington's downtown. Directly across from The Grand Opera House, one block from World LIVE Cage at The Queen Theater & 1 1/2 blocks from The Hotel DuPont, Chelsea Tavern is the perfect choice for pre & post show dining.
Chef Nuwan Karunarathna has assembled a talented team polished enough to deliver a slow-paced romantic dinner for two or a quality meal to be briskly enjoyed on the way to your favorite show. Service at Chelsea is attentive, knowledgeable, friendly & sincere. Our menu is casual, eclectic & accessible. Our beverage selection is dramatic, featuring 31 craft beers on tap, 200 more by the bottle & 21 wines by the glass!



So, stop by for a taste, a sip & some fun!



At Chelsea Tavern, we look forward to serving you soon!

We loved this place on our first visit. You will feel like a regular. They listened to special requests and made lovely suggestions. The duck was very good and we enjoyed the scallops.

We can't wait to recommend Chelsea Tavern to friends who are regulars at Wilmington theater events.

Though we love to go to Chelsea Tavern and enjoyed our food it was disappointing not to be recognized for our 25 th wedding anniversary as noted in my Open Table reservation Was not expecting anything more then for our server or manager to have known the detail of our dinner and my wife be recognized for hanging in there with me

We visited Chelsea Tavern with friends for the special prix fix Valentine's day menu (offered all week). The choices were varied and, as always, the food was excellent! Also, the beer menu, both draft and bottles, is always filled with a large variety of beers.
