Went to Nellie's and had a fantastic dinner. The food was excellent and the presentation was very artistic - usually have only seen restaurants in Manhattan take an interest in how food is plated, so nice to see it here in Branford. The calamari was light and cooked perfectly with a great cherry pepper dip. Our main dishes were great... More

My husband and I went to Nellie Greens twice this month because we found the menu has some interesting entrees. We eat fish, but otherwise eat wholesome food. We found to our surprise they had a quinoa burger served with a unique sauce and a green salad. I spend much time in California having family there and eating some of... More

We are locals to the Branford area during the summer months. It gets a little old going to the same places all the time so we decided to try Nellie Greens in hopes of having a new spot to add to our list. We arrived on a Thursday afternoon and it was pretty empty inside. Our waitress, Dorothy, came by... More

I can not say one bad thing about this place. The food is great and the staff is wonderful. Stevie the hostess is a gem. Jason's (the chef) wine dinners are superb. Great patio dining in the summer with Dave and Jason as bartenders. I would highly recommend this restaurant, I have never had a bad meal here.

Nellie Greens advertises a "Midweek Special" on their website but does not honor it. I called to make reservation for a Wednesday after going on their site and was "laughing" told they have no Special until the Fall. No apologies and no pass along to a manager, just an attitude I did not like. How about "we are so sorry... More

The chef at this restaurant obviously likes what he does. The food is prepared with attention to detail, and innovation in flavor pairing and texture, makes each offering a delight to the palette. The New England Clam Chowder is among the best I've ever had. The duck bruschetta was mind blowing, but not there the next time we went. What... More

Well the wedding was Saturday and brunch on Sunday was here. We started outside for Mimosas , coffee, juice and fruit. it was nice in a rustic sort of way with top notch service and I do mean top notch. We moved indoors and the 30 of us packed the room leaving little for the locals, who fortunately also had... More

This is a very interesting location at the dry docks and next to marina. Have brought family visiting from out if town and dates and always have a good time. Sunset on outdoor patio with a bottle of wine and friends is the place to be with boats coming and going. Food is terrific and bravo to the chef! Try... More

There are lots of good restaurants in Branford and the surrounding towns so it is hard to rate them. My advice is that you should try them all as you won't be disappointed. Nellie Greens had great food and a nice atmosphere overlooking the marina. A little more upscale than the Dockside on the east side of the river, but... More
