I went to the nervous Nellies with two other couples and had a fantastic dinner. The script is delicious, the clam chowder soup was outstanding the service was great the view was unreal. There's nothing like enjoying a great evening with friends overlooking the ocean. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone and the prices are very reasonable. The portions... More

Had my 15 year old daughters Birthday meal here about 10days before Christmas. Great meals all around (7 of us total), the most amazing waitress (wish I could recall her name, but she hugged each of us at end of the meal!), and she brought out the most amazing brownie ice cream dessert!! Beautiful location looking out over the water... More

Service was good. Food taste and prepration awful. Had a Lobster Ruben with the lobster deep fried to a dried tasteless mess, and to my surprise no Sauerkraut any where to be seen. We have been frequent guests and noticed that the food quality has declined to a point that we won't be back. Also there is five dollar charge... More

The Boom Boom Chicken Sandwich was very good as was the Latin Steak Salad. We had an excellent server, Miriam who... More

We ate here once and the food and service was great. When we took the family the service was so bad it overrode the food. Lots of menu items. Nice views on the water.

Ribs were fall-off-the-bone and tasty. Good service. Lobster roll was good, but had more bun than lobster and was pricey compared to similar places- especially since the quantity of meat was lacking. Good ambiance
