Went here for dinner last night. The view was wonderful and free bug spray for all as the small bugs were miserable. However, I was disappointed. They were having some staff problems so dinner took 45 minutes for our dinner to arrive. The food was not as good as we had hoped, esp for the price. Our steak was missing... More

A recent meal on a quiet weekday night had some really good parts and some not-so-great parts. The room is attractive, with a nice view of the harbor. It's reasonably quiet. The menu is really nice, with some unusual offerings and good variety. Prices are on the steep side, which, for us, ramps up our expectations. At our recent visit,... More

Even in the misery of this winter, Nellie Green's was welcoming and cozy with great food! The prices are reasonable, too. It's open on Mondays unlike some other Branford restaurants and offers bottles of wine at half price on this night. Can't wait for Spring to watch the boats start to venture out. It's so fun to see them float... More

The meal, grilled scallops and asparagus over grits, was delicious and the service was excellent. This was a vast improvement over a meal I had there about 4 years ago. I heartily recommend this restaurant. It's a little hard to find and parking is tight so make your reservation for a time after the bar crowd leaves, 7 p.m. or... More

If you have not been to Nellie Green's in Branford, run, don't walk. Executive Chef and co-owner Jason is a creative cook who is not afraid to play with high end ingredients on his ever evolving menu. The food quality is consistently excellent. "Special" dietary requests are, refreshingly, a non-issue. He even thinks of these things in advance (the qinuoa... More

The views are awesome! The menu is varied and delicious! Kind of a casual/dressy atmosphere! From hamburgers to lobster rolls, we have enjoyed everything!

Great nautical restaurant that is in a boatyard on the Branford River. Sometimes parking can get a little tight here but well worth the trip for excellent food. Our lightly dusted and fried artichoke hearts were served with a Parmesan fontina that was absolutely delicious. The lobster sliders with aioli sauce was amazing. Overall great restaurant with water view .

I have been to NG's twice and have mixed feelings about. I love the view, the outdoor seating, drink menu and service was always frienldy and welcoming. ... However... While the Nellie Green Bruger I had for lunch was very tasty, cooked perfectly to desired temperature (medium rare) and service was prompt and fun, breakfast a few weeks later was... More
