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

Backed up against the Branford River within a boatyard you will find Nellie Green's. The original Nellie Green's at the Talmadge was once a speakeasy. Driving to the new Nellie Green's gives one the feeling like you're heading to one now. It's a hideout on the water. Inside it's very simply decorated, relying on the view of the river to... More

My girlfriend and I visited Nellie Green's last night and had a great meal. Very memorable. We caught them on a slower than usual Saturday so our reservation was immediately honored. Great server ( Billy was a pleasure ! ), great apps, great entrees, what else could you look for. Calamari was fantastic and the items from the raw bar... More

Tucked in on the waterfront in Branford, this is a true find. Chef Jason Truscio's creations are an experience in sight and taste. There is not one thing to recommend because very thing is excellent.

Have been to Nellie Green's several times. I just love the lobster sliders as an app-you must try them a trio of butter poached Rockport lobster meat sliders, key lime aioli, micro greens. Also have a great raw bar selection and clam chowder. I also love their golden bosc pear and goat cheese salad. Entrees range from fresh fish and... More

Had a much better experience here back in July. The food this time was fair at best. Lobster sliders served on stale dry rolls. Lobster was sparse unlike my previous visit. My guests' lunches were not much better. Food was sloppily presented. Drinks fair. Service wasn't the best today either. I could not believe this was the same restaurant I... More

Nellie Green's in the midst of a marina on the Branford River has all the ingredients of a really pleasant Summer or Fall evening. Sitting outside sets the tone. A good wine list and your choice of interesting small plates or main courses plus desserts underline the experience. Service can be a bit slow but in general is quite personable... More

The food and presentation was outstanding. The Chief and owner Jason Truscio is so creative. Jason serve a tasting selection of several Starters, Main course, and home made Desserts There is plenty of seating for out door dining with a water view. Everyone in our party enjoy the experience.

I was taken here as a guest after a motor boat ride on Long Island Sound. The menu is unique ranging from burgers to raw bar clams and oysters to filet mignon. I had the chowder for a starter that was absolutely great. All three in our party ordered the sea scallop menu item. The server returned with good news... More

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
