Durty Nellie's is a great overall place to go to! Food and drinks are great and there is always something going on.
Food was good not great, about what you would expect for this setting. Will probably be back given the convenient location to Palatine Metra station & downtown. Next time for outdoor seating which should cut down on noise level too.
We stopped by for a Mother's Day dinner. We love the food…my personal favorite is the Pot 'O Gold Burger. Had a great time with the family and had a great dinner. Love Nellies…..
Durty Nellies had a lot of potential, but the food was really, really bad. I could have made frozen food that would have tasted better. The place has a great beer list, awesome venue and overall cool ambiance. I was really disappointed.
Place was buried and short staffed. Didn't really matter as the owner, Mark, kept filling in for our waiter getting us drinks and taking our appetizer order. Wait staff finally got in sync, our waiter very nice and very apologetic took very good care of us after that. Food came quickly, but not rushed, quality was very good. It's pub food so I can't really wax poetic about it but it was very flavorful, warm where it should be warm cool where it should be cool, nothing to complain about at all. As noted above this was our first time to the establishment, it will not be our last. Nice outside seating area which is in the evening shade. Looking forward to sitting there this summer. If this summer ever gets here.
Durty Nellie's was a great place to go to celebrate St. Patrick's Day with our 2 year old. Still a fun bar atmosphere, but appropriate during the day/early evening for the little ones. He loved the noise and all of the tv's all over. The Shephard's Pie was absolutely FANTASTIC! And the cook was flexible with our little guy's soy allergy, even though they had their limited menu for the holiday. Great time...we'll be back soon.
Had a great time! the 17-piece band filled the stage! Great way to celebrate a birthday. I reserved a table online and had no problems at the door! Food was outstanding! Lots of vegetable options for those that aren't a fan of meat...
Great staff, great location, great entertainment!! I'll be back soon! Definitely will refer you guys!!
We had a GREAT night at Nellie's. The food was awesome (they have great vegetarian options). The service was FANTASTIC too! I have dined here before and will continue to keep coming back!
I love Durty Nellies for bands but was not at all impressed with the food.I was quite disappointing. For the amount we paid which I feel was very expensive for food that was not very good. Also, it took an extremely long time to even order any food because the waiter was so busy we hardly seen him the entire night. We had a big party and asked the waiter to split the bill which he said was fine but we got one bill at the end of the night anyways which was really aggravating. I was also not happy we had to pay cover at 8:00 for dinner when the band didn't start until almost 11 and most of my party had left by then so they payed for nothing. I was very dissapointed all around.
The food will keep you coming back! Small but great menu with daily specials. Friendly service. Owner always checks on you and
is very good about honoring special requests if he can. Price very reasonable. Great selection of beers. Can be a little noisy on band nights especially on the upper floor. Enjoy!!!!
