“Happy Birthday My Nettie”
Reviewed December 19, 2013 via mobile

This is one of my favorite restaurants. It's in a quaint area and the service is fantastic I live going in Sundays as they provide the best deals and the food is exceptional. We will see you on the 22nd of December for the last hurrah and my Nettie's birthday.

“Always a wonderful experience”
Reviewed October 29, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

The ambiance is serene but playful -- I feel like I'm at the beach with perfectly colored walls, natural wood tables and chairs, and big, overhead skylights. The ambiance is beaten by the friendly and helpful service, which is almost trumped by the food. This is a fantastic place to get local crab, oysters, and fish. I've been here three or four times and each experience has been relaxing, delicious, and generally wonderful. It's quickly becoming a favorite place to take family and friends -- and I'll always love it for having such a great outdoor space where I can stop by for some wine and fish tacos with my dog. A truly lovely neighborhood place.

“Fresh & fabulous”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

The combination of fresh ingredients, prepared to enhance their flavor, not mask them, makes Nettie's a favorite for me. The squid was perfectly grilled, the fish tacos moist and topped with creative, tangy sauces and crisp fresh vergetables. Service was well informed, attentive but not smothering, and helpful. The host/owner Annette is always gracious and welcoming and the restaurant decor bright and inviting indoors and social and sun-soaked outdoors on the patio. All in all, a great place for singles, couples, or groups to have a fresh fish and vegetables prepared to feature its great flavors.

“Local Favorite”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Great service - owner Nettie is especially friendly.
Food is simple, fresh, and delicious.
Fish special changes frequently and is usually my favorite dish.
My wife and I bring lots of out of town guests here and they always enjoy it.
