“Nice Location/OK Food”
Reviewed December 26, 2011

We sat outside and there was a band playing. Good atmosphere. Husband had the rack of ribs...nothing special and they were overcooked. I had a combo dish of shrimp and scallops which was very good. Would probably give them another try since this was our first visit.

“a great find”
Reviewed December 20, 2011

Nervous nellies is a wonderful place to host a party. Great food, service and atmosphere was abundant when I hosted a party recently.
As a professional event planner working with other professionals makes the job easy!
The place can accomodate almost any size group and all of the "Foodies" that attended this beach side community were amazed at the quality and quantity of food served.
The house band on the night of my event was awesome and appreciated by all.
Can't wait to go back and really kick back and enjoy this treasure once again

“Amazing fresh breads”
Reviewed December 17, 2011

Sandwiches on fresh baked breads were great. Too many menu items listed- it can be a little overwhelming. The waitstaff was helpful in narrowing down choices and were all very friendly. Nice waterfront marina location. Live music during lunch was a very nice touch.

“Worked out well for a large group”
Reviewed December 15, 2011

We reserved a table for a dozen people, many who don't dine out often and a few who are not from Florida. Without exception, everyone positively commented on the number of menu choices, especially the seafood options. This restaurant really does have one of the most comprehensive menus of any restaurant.

A real bucket of bread and corn bread is served with dinner, which was fresh and tasty. Beware of the "Big" club sandwich...it is a monster! All of the dishes come in sizable portions and all in our group enjoyed their dishes, taking much of the food home. We have been a longtime fan of their cousin in Sanibel, the Island Cow. We will add this restaurant to our list of beach dinner options.
