He was quiet and enjoyed being treated special! We made two trips there! It's a great spot if you have a dog or not! They had live music... More

We went to Nervous Nellie's after a sunset cruise. They had live music on the patio which was very good. The food was amazing. You better be hungry though, the portions are huge. Our server was super helpful, as I was torn between three choices! He recommended a new dish I was looking at and he was right! I would... More

Nervous Nellie's is a great dinning place. Very accommodating for large family parties as well as small ones. The food is always amazing. I have been dinning here since 2009 and I am always impressed whenever I visit.

We took a party of 16 and Debbie was fabulous. The order came out perfect!! Quick and very tasty. I got the Lobster Mac n Cheese and it was spectacular. Tried several others meals and they were also exceptional.

Sat upstairs, where it's first come first serve (same menu as downstairs) rather than having to wait for a seat, overlooking the water. Service was great! Food was absolutely wonderful! We will definitely be back next time we visit. This was our favorite place to eat while we were here, many great options.

We've had lunch here a couple of times before heading out on the dolphin cruise. The staff is great, courteous, funny and fast. Loved the featured frosty drinks and the food was amazing. So good, in fact that we will be back again on Sunday.

The outdoor patio on the 2nd floor is a great place to hang out on a beautiful day. You have a great view of the bay and the marina. The wait staff are always kind. The food and drinks are good. The oysters were very fresh. They had a decent selection of wines. There is a huge menu with a... More
