We dined at NeNe's for dinner on Feb. 19. You get a free glass of wine with any dinner entree. The only available wine is the house, Smoking Loon, from Chile. We were familiar with this; NeNe's offers Pinot Noir, Pinot Grigio, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Chardonnay. If you want more than one glass, additionals are sold at $5 or bottles for the very reasonable $18. We both had the seafood platter, available fried, broiled, or blackened. You also get a fresh,crisp salad and choice of potato. Everything was delicious. Cost: $17.95. We opted for the broiled grouper, shrimp, and scallops on the platter. The grouper, a fresh catch this time of year, was melt-in-your-mouth. We met some locals who went there for a birthday - they obviously know value and good food. This is important to us: where the locals dine in a town full of vacationers this time of year. Most of the patrons seemed to be locals also. Our server was friendly and professional; not much of a wait for a table or food at 7:30 p.m. The remainder of the dinner menu included beef/chicken/pork staples and Italian selections. Excellent food and value here. We closed the place while fininshing off the bottle of wine at 9:00, and the friendly staff didn't push us toward the door while turning the lights up and cleaning up. Great neighborhood feel. For a visitor, a nice hometown ambiance.

We were looking for an inexpensive but real food experience and were very happy when we came across Nenes. We had great homemade soup and the Chicken Salad sandwich was great - the recipe included Craisins and thyme - and the bread was very good. We would definitely go back.

Returning to Marco after a 4 year absence, we found NeNe's unchanged....still the best place for breakfast! The wait is always going to be there, but it is certainly worth it. The friendliness of the staff and the quality of the food is what brings us and a lot of folks back time and again. We noticed that dinner specials are also offered and hope to try this option in the future.

We went to NeNe's as an alternative to overpriced hotel breakfast buffet and we were not at all disappointed. We tried it on Thursday morning and liked it enough that we went back on Saturday. It's breakfast, so it was no culinary masterpiece, just very good, tasty, substantial meals. The omelet, eggs, waffle and hash browns were all excellent, The decor is bright and inviting. There's a nice buzz of activity but at low enough volume that conversation is easy. The staff and waitress were very friendly while efficient.

Nene's Kitchen has always impressed us with their food, their service, and their cleanliness! Their Coconut Shrimp was simply outstanding! The only problem is that it is only served on Wednesdays.
This place is VERY family friendly, too!
Love it!!!
