So, you snake your car around the back of a marine repair complex, find a parking spot and make your way to a wonderful dining venue. From the folks who greet you, to the bartenders and servers, to the manager who comes by every table to chat, you will not find a friendlier place. Indoor or outdoor seating is available... More

We had a delicious dinner--fresh seafood, lobster risotto and fresh vegetables--well prepared and served at the outdoor dining space by the Branford River. Can't wait to come back!

My friend and I meet every month or so for lunch and to catch up on our busy lives. When we arrived at Nellie Green's we were disappointed to find the dining room had been reserved for a private party. However, we were comfortably seated in the bar at a tall table for two. After reviewing the menu, we decided... More

What a great find Nellie's turned out to be. The location is great but when you turn in you may have second thought. The oysters are great. The lobstertini is a must try. I tried my first moscow mule there it was great with actual ginger beer and in a true copper mug. We only did appys but will return... More

Our lunch included a black bean and quinoa burger and a crispy fish wrap. It was just great, and the service was friendly and attentive.
