We always give a place a 2nd chance, including Nervous Nellis's. Our second trip was not any better than our first visit. We arrived around noon for a nice lunch. We were greeted and asked if we would like to eat in the main room or on the upper deck. We chose the upper deck, the host than handed us 2 menus and pointed up the steps. We proceeded upstairs and seated ourselves outside...the view was very nice. Our server came over rather quickly and brought us our water and tea, and left. We waited quite some time (we were the only table), before she finally came back. We placed our order for Tavern bread. It came out about 15 minutes later, served by a cook. She never came back, the bread was overdone and dry. We waited for quite some time and finally went to the bar to pay our bill. Our server came out of an elevator and said she was stocking, and nothing was working that day. Many excuses....we paid and left and will NOT be going back this time. Just a really bad experience!

Walked up to the hostess, said "Hi, how are you?" she glared at me and said, "Busy." she put her head down to work on something she was writing, then engaged in conversation with a server. My husband & I looked at each other and decided we did not need to deal with that attitude, so we left...as we were turning around to leave she said..."I can help you." No...we can go eat somewhere else! Thanks but no thanks! Can not figure it, busy...you should be glad!

We are in the area for 10 days of relaxation. Nervous Nellies has a nice combo of everything. It was a beautiful night on the top balcony looking over the harbour. Gas warmers made sure we weren't cold. Live entertainment as we ate our dinner. I always ask the waiter what are the most poular dishes when I go to a new restaurant. So we picked a couple of them. Lots of menu choices. Everything was a man size meal. We had Mussels, Capresse Salad (big too), Seafood Pasta, and their Famous Black Beans and Rice. Everyone liked their meals and the service was great too.
