Had dinner in the bar, reminded me of t.v series Cheers. Everybody knows your name! Went with friends who dine there five nights a week! Always good, I was sceptical. After 30 minutes I had been introduced to a dozen friendly regulars. The waitress was...really attentive, fast service. The quality of the food was excellent. The portions humongous. Atmosphere was great. Will try the restaurant part next timeMore

Stopped here driving back from the Salton Sea. The bar was very busy, we had to park at the Midas next door as Neil's lot was full. This is allowed when Midas is closed apparently. This place has what I consider very good prices on...beers, compared to Maryland at least. Staff were nice and the place was pretty clean. Their customers all seemed to be having fun. You can't ask for much else,More

Have driven by here many times & finally decided to stop. Definitely a no frills hang out. Tap beer was down so were given the choice of bottled beer for $3 which was fair. The restaurant is run by someone different than bar so you...order at their own counter. My husband ordered the ribs which were okay & had a very smokey taste. I had the pulled pork sandwich which was also okay. (might have liked it more if the bun wasn't so hard) Weren't crazy about the beans which tasted like someone dumped too much chili powder in them. All in all, good food but nothing out of this world.More

We sought out a karaoke bar. Found Neils on google. Friendly staff, good crowd. We had chicken fingers/fries as a snack. Done well, came with dips. However, the KJ spent more time tending bar than running the karaoke. He would set up 4 singers, then...disappear for half hour or more. Then another 4 singers and then he's gone again. Very slow operator. We came for karaoke and a fast rotation, but we ende up just sitting and wasting time. We left and found Plan B Lounge in Thousand Palms on Monterey Rd near I-10. The KJ (Red) ran one singer after another and had a much better sound system. We recommend Plan B Lounge for Karaoke.More

Neil's is a great place with really great staff. We went there for 4 days using them as a shuttle to the Desert Trip. A big shout out to Daniel for all he done taking us back and forth. The food was awesome as well....If we lived in Indio this would be out hangout.More

I recently went to Neil's Lounge to meet a friend for drinks. I felt like I was walking into a country bar from a small town in Texas. Neil's is known for Karaoke. If you like Karaoke, come to Neil's. When I went it was...primarily country music Karaoke but the crowd was having fun with it. They have a full bar and western motif.More

New restaurant operator in Neil's delivering the real deal in BBQ. Tri-Tip Steak, Pork Sandwich both great and smoked perfectly with good sides at reasonable prices. Keep in mind this is a locals place that has "karaoke" every night. If you like BBQ it's worth...the effort to go and partake. Drinks are good and reasonable with good service.More

Went here as it has become part of mom, sis and I normal stops during our girls Indio trips. Karoake was light but that's hit or miss. What WAS worth mentioning is that we wanted pizza so because they happen to be out of something...(it happens) , went to the store JUST FOR US so we could have pizza. It was really good too, light and airy and full of cheese. Expected sub par food for a "bar" type atmosphere but not what I got. Pricing and selection of eats surprisingly great too.More

As a long time resident of Indio, Neil's is a must. The drinks are a very good pour, the bartenders are servers are extremely friendly and the prices are great! What more could you ask for? However, if those are not enough, there is excellent...Kareoke and the clientele is extremely friendly. In addition, you will find every type of person represented from all walks of life. This is definitely my go to spot with all of my friends.More

I have driven past Neil's for years but today I stopped in with my dad for a beer after golf. What a pleasant surprise, western motif inside. Met Cowboy and enjoyed a couple of cold ones . We will come back again .
