A Great Find!

This a wonderful little restaurant open for lunch and dinner. We found it after touring the USS IOWA, it's maybe 1/2 mile away. The food is delicious and the staff is very friendly and attentive. The special of the day featured a pasta I wasn't very thrilled about but they were more than happy... read more

Like another recent reviewer our experience was also "Unfortunate". Again, the ambiance and wait staff were excellent. It's in a beautiful, quaint setting. The meal started off with an excellent selection of bread and a delicious red sauce with mozzarella cheese dip. The salads were adequate. However, my wife and I decided to share a steak. It was probably the... More

Best Italian food I've ever had at a restaurant. Upscale environment but reasonable prices. If there are more than one at the table each should order a different soup - new ones each day. And of course the pastas and seafoods are wonderful. Good wine list too. Don't go before heading out on a Carnival cruise - you'll only be... More

My family and I have been frequent diners at this restaurant for at least 14 years, and it saddens me to write this review. First I must say the wait staff is excellent; many of them have worked for the restaurant the entire time I have been going there. They are professional, attentive, and welcoming. My past experiences with the... More

This is a very nice restaurant, with lovely ambiance! The service is over the top. My husband ordered the Veal Marsala which was served with sautéed green beans & oven roasted potatoes! Excellent. I just had a house salad, but the plate was chilled, nice crispy mixed greens with an outstanding vinaigrette dressing. This is a local favorite, so you... More

We have visited this restaurant on several occasions on the evening before boarding a cruise ship and have always been impressed! Neil's has a traditional european feeling with an open fire place between the bar area and the dining room, vaulted, open beam cathedral ceilings and fresh linens on the tables. It is warm and inviting. The menu offers a... More

Neil's has consistently delicious seafood and pasta, but my personal favorites are the amazing homemade soups and the dipping sauce for the bread. The standout soup, in my opinion, is the pasta e fagioli. It is the best soup I've ever had anywhere: slightly rich and so very tasty. Wow, wow, wow. And the mascarpone cheese mixed into marinara sauce... More

We've been going to Neil's since before it became Neil's about 15 years ago. The previous owner and chef was not very good, but we had friends who liked the place. Since Neil took over the food is excellent. He's a master of cooking seafood. I rarely order anything but his pasta with seafood. Sometimes the chippino. His sauces are... More

We ate at Neil's over the busy July 4th weekend and it was a last minute decision so no reservations. We had a group of 6 and were treated very well. The food was good and we thought the service was excellent. It's one of the type of places we look for when we travel, not trendy or the latest... More
