We have been to Nellie's a total of 4 times and each has been a good experience. Whether you order food or just sit with a cocktail it is fine. We have been outside upstairs looking out to the marina and been inside as well....More

It may be the same as the dinner menu. They have a huge selection, something for everyone. From chicken fingers to seafood.
