The place was dirty, took an hour to get our ap., the service was bad, the food was way over priced and was terrible. The only thing that was ok was the view. Will not reccomed to anyone!!! Go next door to mantanza's, great steaks and way better seafood or there's a McDonalds around the corner.

“Great food, lots of choices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

We ate at nervous Nellie's for the first time. We were told it was a great place to go and it was. Their menu was huge! There is something for everyone on the menu. They have sandwiches to lobster. The food we got was delicious, and the portions are large. 3 out of 4 of us took half their meal home. It is also directly on the bay with outdoor, covered porch, and inside dinning. For good food on the bay, this is a must go.

“Great view of the back bay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

We chose the upstairs bar with a great Sailor Jerry bar and entertainment usually starting at 6 or 7 o'clock. They have a number of fav beers on tap like an amber beer from Maine and even Corona light. The portions are huge, so plan to take some home. The prices are okay...I paid 14.99 for a massive bowl of Gumbo. It was full of plump, fresh seafood and delicious. The bartender told us they fly the seafood in from Maine every other day Federal Express. The people are friendly as they always are on the beach and the workers aim to please. Really fun, don't miss it!

“Great service and food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

This was our second visit to Nervous Nellies and we were not disappointed. We were seated right away and it was after the sunset. Usually places are busy just after sunset. The wait staff was attentive and you can't go wrong with coconut shrimp!! Very relaxing on the water. As we left there was quite a wait. So go early. We walked from our hotel so there was not a parking problem. Yes, we will return.

“Amazing menu! Amazing food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

Yes, the place was crazy busy and we waited at the bar a long time for a table to have dinner. But who's going to complain about hanging out at the bar & having a few brews? 230 items on the menu I believe! food was amazing! fresh! ample! tasty! hot! who could ask for more? would go back again & again!
