Excellent Service

We have been to Nellie Greens several times and have always enjoyed ourselves. We ate outside at the bar and took in the views while having apps. Our bartender was excellent. She was engaging and generous with samples when we couldnt make up our minds what to drink. Once we decided on our... read more

Dinner on the outside patio deck overlooking a beautiful marina and harbor wasn't just a beautiful, delicious dinner, it was a wonderful experience. Nellie Green's provided my friend from Belgium and me such a delicious, fun and friendly burger lunch, we came back for a dinner of roasted duck and potato pancake that the chef personally had described to us...

We Just had the most delicious dinner outside on the patio deck at Nellie Greens. We ordered raw clams and lobster sliders for apps-fresh and delicious. Ordered the summer salad and the Beet salad-both tasty tender greens and seasoned perfectly! Amanda (our daughter) ordered the octopus, after discussing the dish with our waiter. He said it was like no other... More

Came here for a night out with friends. Had a delicious margarita! The salad was fresh and my entree was fantastic. I loved the atmosphere and the view. A tricky place to find so be sure to follow the tiny signs.

Stopped for "happy hour" and a bite to eat. Great food, prices and service. We'll definitely go back for dinner.

This is one of our favorite stops when we travel from New York to Connecticut. While the restaurant wont win any awards for gourmet dining, what they do, they do well. The service is attentive, the outdoor patio very pleasant on a warm summer evening and the menu interesting. We enjoy the quinoa black bean burger and the Tuscan kale... More

The food here is amazing. It is always fresh and prepared in imaginative ways. The chef is excellent and must run a wonderful kitchen as we have never had a disappointing lunch or dinner. And the staff are helpful and friendly. We are used to eating out quite a bit and enjoy good food. We place NG up with some... 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.
