This is the best thin crust pizza I have ever had. Great service and a great selection of beer. This place had a great vibe to it. I can't wait to go back and try some of the other food.

I heard so much about Nellie's Place that I had to go there. Please understand that they are supposed to have a really good pizza, but I don't eat pizza. I ordered a turkey platter that was mediocre at best. This place is always busy and it seemed like pizza was the favorite food choice. If I had known this... More

Have eaten here several times....every time we get terrific food, great service at affordable prices. I think that Nellie's cheese pizza is every bit as good as Kinchley's (although I can't vouch for all of the different offerings), but Nellie's other meals are excellent....much better than K's.

Great Friday nite bar atmosphere. Excellent blackboard specials along with a full salad bar. We always come for the great pizza, however everything is really pretty good here. We like the noise in the bar, Great to see all the smiling faces, especially from the staff!

Being house guests in the area we took our hosts out for Pizza and at their recommendation came here. We waited 45 (about what we were told) and then were seated in a crowded dining room. After our drink orders were taken it was almost 15 minutes before they arrived and all were just put in glasses-not actually mixed. Maybe... More

We enjoy a number of dishes at Nellie's. her Pizza and steaks are very good. There is a good salad bar and a nice wine list. The atmosphere is friendly ad every visit is a pleasant one.

Had lunch here today and it was good. Nice environment. Ordered the French Onion Soup and a cheeseburger with fries. The burger and fries were very good. The soup was fine but nothing special (compared to French Onion soup I've had at other places). Nice pub though. Prices were very reasonable. I would go back and try something else. Had... More

Started off by ordering a tap beer and getting a bottle instead. Ordered lasagne. Really bad. Ricotta was grainy, sauce was greasy and sour. Tasted like it had been frozen for a long time and defrosted to serve. Told my waiter who did not offer to replace the dish. Other dishes ordered were mediocre, at best. Had trouble getting waiter's... More

We haven't been to Nellies in a while so we went the other night. Unfortunately it was early in the evening and it was very loud with children. We sat a long time before anyone came over to take our drink order and then a long time before anyone took our food order. 3 of us ordered 2 appetizers for... More

The redo is very nice but the food is inconsistent. Appetizers are ok but burgers come out overdone or raw and pizza crust sometimes needs a few more minutes. When you have a few drinks everything tastes good so I suggest drinking your favorite brew and ignore the kitchen misses.
