Alana was an amazing server. She made our meal and time at the restaurant a memorable experience. It wasn't our first time there nor will it be our last! Food was outstanding as well.

As a tourist couple we dined here and enjoyed a very pleasant meal. The service was excellent. The server explained any menu questions with confidence and good detail. This lead to choosing the hot crab dip and it was excellent shared between two. Also some superior oysters were tasted and they were fresh succulent and of good quality. The New... More

From the moment you are greeted at the door until you are seated, you are made to feel welcomed and valued. The seafood is second to none and the presentation is hard to beat. The server gives you all the time you require between courses, not hovering hoping to hurry you out the door. The French Onion soup is very... More

We celebrated our anniversary there. Beautiful views and exceptional food. We arrived early, so there was no line-up yet. Service was wonderful.

We were looking for a good happy hour in Victoria and we found it at Nellies. They started at 3:00 which worked well for us and have an extensive food and beverage menu that is priced extremely low despite the healthy sized servings. Service is good and the food even better.

Excellent fare, awesome service. Our wait staff were ever so patient, not hovering, offered welcome recommendations and served food outside the menu. Couldn't have asked for a better 95th birthday celebration for my Mom

We had high expectations for seafood dishes. But some fish were overcooked. Then my husband had stomach issues. We were disappointed.

We were celebrating my husband's birthday but with our distillery tour that afternoon we forgot to make reservations for the Friday night. We phoned Nautical Nellies and got a reservation for our party of four. When we got there I explained it was a special birthday for my husband and even though it was last minute they gave us a...
