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)

This is a great place for dinner following a show at the Purple Rose Theatre, which is obvious from the stream of people from the theatre to the Common Grill. The dinner itself was good, but not fabulous. My wife had a scallop and seafood...More

Boisterous venue. Probably great for a younger crowd. Not so much for the geezer set. We started dinner with a chunky gazpacho soup which was very good. Hint: you can substitute the soup for the salad that usually comes with your entree. My wife had...More

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