Decided to try to catch the sunset so asked to be seated outside. Service was very good. The menu was large, and we opted for typical bar food. Food portions were big, and food was delicious. There was live music at just the right volume and genre. Overall a very nice visit even though the sun and clouds did not... More

Nervous Nellie's has got to have one of the biggest menus that I have ever seen. My wife had a burger and potato planks. I had a different type of reuben. It was made with lobster meat, cole slaw, swiss cheese and dressing. It also came with potato planks. Everything was delicious and the size of the portions were just... More

This has a very nice dock view of the gulf. The food is good. The only thing is that the menu is way to large, very confusing when your trying to pick something to eat. I've been there several times and it is a casual dress code and food has been good. They say everything is made fresh daily even... More

We enjoyed Nervous Nellies so much we at there 2 nights in a row. Great service but the wait for the food to come out was a bit long however they were swamped while we were there so a longer wait is understandable. A wonderful place to eat dinner on the deck, or inside when it's too hot outside. I... More

We took our cockapoo out shopping and lunch with us. They were very friendly. You do have to sit outside with a pet and it was hot but they put us at a very shaded table and there was an occasional breeze coming off the bay. You sit right at the waters edge. The food was excellent. The only complaint... More

The menu was overwhelming with 229 options. Thankfully, our server was very helpful with recommendations. The food was really good! The "live" music was a joke as the "musician" sang along to tracks. I would definitely go back for the food and service.

We were there for my son's 40th birthday with a group of 9 and had a fantastic time and superb service from Denise. It's a great atmosphere right on the water. Check it out!

My mom was visiting in town and really loves nervous Nellies so we decided to go there. Jean was my server and I recommend she go into a totally different field of service. She had no since of urgency and I only saw her about twice thru a 2 hour ordeal. We ordered the tavern bread which was mediocre at... More
