“Great drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

The family went here for dinner. Friendly and efficient service. Couldn't sit outside because of threatening weather. I had seared ahi tuna salad. Paul had the Maine lobster and Jeff had the world's greatest pasta. He found the pasta to be overly peppered, but was able to remove most of it. Paul enjoyed his lobster and I really liked my tuna. The dressing was a mango ranch that was very good. I also had a dreamsicle drink and tiramisu martini. Both were delicious. The girls had the mudpie desert and devoured it.

“Wonderful Family Restaurant on the Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

Over 100 items on the menu. We thought one or two would flop....not so. A party of 9 enoyed everything from prime rib (butter tender) to grouper, salmon, pork chop, and pasta. Service was fast and unobtrusive the bucket of raisin and corn bread delicious. Prices were very reasonable.
Loved the view of Matanzas Pass...with boats going back and forth.

“Don't be nervous eating at Nellies”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

Great service, great location, great food, great live music, a fun place! Primarily seafood, but a diverse menu. Large oyster poorboy, haddock sandwich, skillet dinner & buffalo chicken sandwich were enjoyed by us 4. Eyeballed great looking meals all around us. We all want to return. Free parking in a lot across the street for the patrons.
