Service is wonderful

I had the pleasure eating here with my wife today and the service was tremendous! Our server (we forgot her name, short with short hair as well) was very friendly and attentive! Our food took quite a while to come out but thankfully we had some great cocktails in the meantime! As we left we talked... read more

First... unlike what another reviewers posted...no there is no boat docking for this restaurant. There is no place to dock for this restaurant. Also this restaurant has no live music, so I don't know what restaurant that other person was reviewing, it wasn't this place. Great if you want to spend your entire paycheck on a mediocre dinner. Friday night... More

Was visiting Branford to take the tour of the Thimble Islands and found this place listed on Trip Advisor. What a great lunch we had! We had a group of 7 for lunch, ages ranging from 15 to 76. The service was perfect, and the food was excellent. Some of the items we ordered were the quinoa burger, the octopus... More

We came upon this gem on the harbor by accident! The food was exceptional, the service was great/friendly, and we didn't feel rushed yet the waiter was very attentive. Our waiter gave us spot-on recommendations.

Outside area is good, they have live music in the summer. You can also drive a boat there. Tuesdays and wednesdays they usually have a dinner for 2 special that is very god value...food is better than we expected...been there a few times.

Great food comfortable setting inside and out. Peaceful lunch. I had the cape cod crispy fish wrap which I enjoyed. Loaded with flavor but did not overpower the fish. A must try

Come here for fun on the river! This place hits all the marks. Best of all they have a talented chef and imaginative menu. The ambience is pleasant indoors or out. Service is impeccable and friendly. The staff is most helpful. It is not a cookie cutter place.

A group of coworkers and I recently traveled to the Branford area for work. We chose to go to Nellie Greens because of the great reviews on trip advisor. We were not disappointed! Our waitress was great...very patient and helpful with questions about menu items. While this choice can be a bit pricey, the food is phenomenal and so are... More

We reserved ahead and were seated on the deck. Our waiter promptly took our drink and dinner orders. Our dinner was delicious, my salmon was melt in your mouth medium rare as ordered. We enjoyed a very pleasant evening watching the activity on the waterfront.

We used to like coming here but prices have increased and the quality of service and food sadly decreased a bit. Scallops and oysters are fresh and tasty but overpriced for the portion size. Great place to be outside (assuming no-one smokes near you)
