This is a small bar, nothing fancy, but they have cold beer and someone playing the piano for sing a longs. Fun little place to go and hear some music, have a drink and laugh. They serve food, which we did not try, and there are peanuts on the table.

We always stop in at Nelly's when we are in town! The piano man music and atmosphere is great! Prices are average. Food and drinks are great! We have always had great service every time we have been there!

We were in town for a conference and decided to go out after dinner to blow off a little steam and what better way, than to a great local piano bar. The night was made even better by our server named Kate. She was very prompt, constantly checked on us and made sure our drinks never ran dry. It's service... More

Loud piano player & sing along. So loud you can not talk. Peanuts on floor. Waiter stank of cigarette smoke. Lousy menu items. We quickly drank our beer and left. All four of us disliked it. Pew are ages 50 to 67. Do not recommend

Loved this pub. I had been to one in Ireland with the same name. Of course different in style but the feel and fun still the same. Cheers!

We went here on our last night in town and it was a cool place to be. If you go get there early because the place was packed, we sat on the patio. I really enjoyed the piano player, he was cracking jokes in the songs he was playing . I definitely will go back to this place

I hung out for about an hour caught a game on the tv in the corner while listening to the party crowd tear it up over a piano comic... awesome place to get a whisky and kill time.

What a fun time at Nellies. I was there some time ago and it seems to always be a hit with the visitors and locals. One thing is to get there early on busy days because it is not a big place and packed when you get there later. Well worth the wait if there is a line! Fun times... More
