• ~Mike, Thanks so much for tonight! The food was a big hit.
    Thanks for getting it out at 5:30. Your staff there was also amazing.
    Really appreciate it!!! ~Lindsay

    ~I just wanted to let you know I was at Nellie’s on Tuesday night with my family for the first time. The black bean burger was phenomenal as well as the sweet potato fries and a stony creek lager. Staff was wonderful, great view. Will definitely be back. Can I get the recipe for the black bean burger? Lol. Thank you for a pleasant evening.~Jill

    ~Enjoyed Easter brunch today. Food and service, both, were superb. Thanks for a lovely experience! ~Nora

    ~“Nelliegreens is one of our favorite places! Amazing food, amazing service, amazing atmosphere!!!!”

    ~“It was MOST delicious. The service was excellent. The wait for food time was a little too long but worth the wait.
    I can’t wait to come again.”

    ~“Everything we ordered was delicious and looked beautiful. But what made our dinner really special for us was how pleasant and attentive the entire staff was to us the entire time. We really felt that our presence there was valued. Thank you for that! We will definitely be back with friends.”

    ~I just wanted to take the time to express to you how amazing our event went last night, in part because the food was absolute perfection! I can’t say enough about the service, the quality, the presentation, etc. I can honestly say that I come from a line of great cooks and it’s not that easy to impress me the way that Nellie Greens has. I will tell you that I will recommend you to everyone and anyone that will listen to me. Words cannot express how delicious your food is. You have to taste it to believe it! I look forward to coming directly to Nellie Greens to experience more in the very near future.

    Thank you again, ~ Sandra

  • ~Was visiting Branford to take the tour of the Thimble Islands and found this place listed on Trip Advisor. What a great lunch we had! We had a group of 7 for lunch, ages ranging from 15 to 76. The service was perfect, and the food was excellent. Some of the items we ordered were the quinoa burger, the octopus burger, fish tacos, and the lobster sliders. Everyone really enjoyed their selections, and one of our party is a real fish taco fan, and rated these number two on their all time personal list. We ate inside and pretty much had the interior to ourselves. There were a number of parties outside on the deck. It’s a little hard to find, but once you work your way back around the back of the working boatyard, it’s obvious. We would definitely seek this place out again if we are in the area in the future.

    ~Hi Guys!!!
    I want to extend our sincere thanks and appreciation for an AMAZING meal and overall experience last night!! Everyone had a blast and was fully blown away with the food!! We have already planned our return visit for the next birthday dinner celebration in July!! Thanks for all you did. Everything was incredible!!!

  • ~This is a great place! We eat there for breakfast, happy hour, dinner, special events – just about any time the opportunity presents itself. The owner and executive chef are so concerned about your total dining experience. And the regular staff make you feel like a part of the family.

  • ~Mike and his staff did an extraordinary job providing a very special wedding for our daughter and new husband July 23, 2011. Our daughter and her fiancée wanted an event combining sunshine (realizing they had no control over), good service, and excellent food; all of which was delivered perfectly by Nellie Green’s Restaurant.

    Our children were married outside on the patio, followed by a cocktail reception with a wonderful buffet inside (air conditioned) afterward. The staff’s attention to detail was exceptional and could not have been better.

    Thank you all for caring so well for our special event.”

  • ~“Your chowder is really good! We’re from RI and have tasted a lot of (NE) Clam Chowder and yours is some of the best we ever had. You ought to market it.”

  • ~“Once you have a (Tavern) Burger here, you don’t want to go anywhere else.”

  • “On behalf of my sisters, I just wanted to say thanks for all that you did to make our bereavement luncheon so special. The food was outstanding, the atmosphere and setting were perfect. Mom loved it when I would take her there, always one of her favorites. I’ll continue to drop by when I am in town.”

  • “Thank you and Jason so much for taking care of Jean’s birthday cake. It was very nice of you and I appreciate your help with that. The dinner, wines and special guests were wonderful. It was a terrific experience.” Harry

  • ~Hats off to everyone at Nellie Green’s that made our dining experience so special. From the friendly and attentive staff to the most amazing Oktoberfest entrees we have ever had…we loved it all!
