Savor the taste of American cuisine at Nellie's Sports Bar. Located in the former Addison Scurlock Photography Studio, the restaurant honors Scurlock's commitment to the neighborhood and displays his photographs of the Washington DC's African-American elite and working class during the glory days of the historic U Street corridor.
Its menu features fries, nachos and quesadillas, as well as housemade guacamole. Some of its main entrées range from turkey, bleu or guacamole burgers, to grilled chicken and cheesesteak sandwiches. Visitors can also enjoy Nellie's cocktails such as the Hawaiian Punch and Russian Pear, in addition to Budweiser and other bottled beers. To finish the meal, patrons can indulge in the chocolate brownie and other homemade desserts.
Nellie's has games on TV, drag brunch, poker nights and karaoke among other events. Guests can also purchase the establishment's T-shirts and caps.
I've only been to one Drag Queen Brunch and that was at Nellie's. By far the show started way before the show started. It was a wonderful outing with the ladies.
This was a good time! The entertainment, service and food were fantastic! I would highly recommend this place!
My cousin birthday was December 28 th the day before she stated she didn't want to go because she read menu and thought she wasn't going to like the food and I told her it's like buffet but they serve breakfast and lunch so I was able to convince her but she enjoy herself from the moment we got there the atmosphere was great the ladies are pleasant ,friendly and , funny. I love all the performance but my 2 favorite is Beyoncé and Diana Ross I forgot their real name the show is all of that and more I'm planning all my girlfriends birthday or get together for here so see your real soon
I would recommend this as a brunch spot to try at least once for a fun girls day out.
I had a wonderful time and really enjoyed myself wih my 3LW sister's and celbrate my birhtday. I would to do this again.
This place is a girlfriend get away... If you want to just have fun with friends... this is the place to be
Fantastic place for a brunch with your best gal pals. The drag queens are very friendly and entertaining, and the food is fantastic. It does get very, very loud, not a relaxing place to catch up with an old friend, better for celebrating a birthday or bachelorette party/bridal shower.
My girlfriends and I had a blast. The food and entertainment was great.
I and 5 of my female girlfriends attended Nellie's Drag Brunch on Saturday, November 15, 2014, 12:30 p.m. show. First of all the LAVISH BRUNCH CUISINE was out of this world! Every bite, every taste and each and every crumb was absolutely outstanding!! (The cooks ROCK-OUT)!! Last but not at all the least - the drag professionals were out of control!!!! - each and every performance was so entertaining and the energy was on 100,000!!!!!!!!!! We had fun from the time we entered the building until it all ended and not to mention the hospitality from the staff was impeccable (great job)! I will be returning for the Drag Brunch again soon and very soon but until my feet meets Nellie's ground.........toodles professionals :)
First timer at this event. It was fantastic and I had a ball; the entertainment was exciting and the food was excellent!
Cant wait to go back....food was awesome...entertainment was awesome...overall great experience....no judgement zone!!!!
I love the food and the drinks were so gd and the peformances were excellent the Queens definitely made me feel like a Queen on my Day thank you for a wonderful time
I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the food was great. I would recommend this to my friends and family. The housewives of Benning road was a name given my Nay Nay and gave a friend in the group a nickname of Miguel. I loved the whole experience and will definitely be going back.
If I wanted to spend time in a sports bar, which I don't, then I likely would love Nellie's as there are multiple tvs blaring multiple games at full volume constantly. Pleasant young crowd, but I like somewhere with chairs and tables and able to hear my companions talk.
This was my second experience at Nellie's Drag Brunch, and again it was a very pleasant experience. Good food and a great show!
I had a great customer experience at Nelliie's. My friends and I can't wait to go back for brunch.
Had an EXCELLENT time at Nellie's Drag Brunch!! The food for brunch was amazing and the ladies performing in drag were fantastic!! We had an excellent time and what a way to support the LGBT community. I would surley go back and bring more friend!
This is a fun place to see a drag show during brunch. The drag queens are much better than other places I have gone for drag brunch.
It's a great time when you go with a group of friends.
I love the waitresses and the drag show. The waitresses are so nice. The food is yummy!
The sisters where great! Classy friendly🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
This was the most Fabulous experience I've ever in life experienced.... attending the brunch for my friends birthday I was so pleased how everyone made the birthday girls and guys feel all special....It also uplifted my spirits after A literally hell of a week...the prices were great... the food was very tasteful....... And the queens o gosh those Queens served for dear life :) I felt right at home and my girls loved it to...we made a promise to go at least once a month as kind of a treat to our self for laughter and fun.. and If you have not been you beta get your tail in there....I just feel in love love love ....and you will too.
Great food and great entertainment at the Drag Brunch. Lots of fun.
Shaniqua was a bit offensive to the patrons in a rude manner. For example, the patrons were allowed to enter the venue prior to her approval. She erratically made every patron rise from their chosen seat and made them sit at the table for which she chose. Coincidentally, my guests were seated at the very same table for which they originally chose. My companion was truly intimidated by her.
Nellies never disappoints, from the friendly bar staff to the delicious food and very strong drinks. I always find myself returning again and again.
I was not impressed with the food. The waffles were gooey and hard to swallow and the bacon was too crisp. The entertainment was off the hook.
I had a wonderful time. It was very entertaining and the food was good. The performance was very entertaining. I wii be back.
Bridal shower fun!!!
Great place for brunch, the food was fantastic, kudos to the chef, the entertainment is fun, energetic, and I will be going again!!
Great for a girls outing. Prepare to have a good time. Bring single dollar bills!
The food is great and the show is fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It was clear from the beginning that it's all about having a good time. The Drag brunch was wonderful. The food was good and they had plenty of it. The entertainers were energetic and you could tell that they spend a lot of time mastering the person they are impersonating. Beyoncé better watch out because she has some competition at Nellie's.
I took my daughter to Drag Brunch for her birthday. We had THE best time! Also in attendance was my mom, aunt, and friends. They all had the best time. My mom was invited to come to dance with one of the queens during her performance (THE BEST). They were really surprised about how great the food was. Totally unexpected. We are CERTAINLY coming back! I have a gang of friends that were jealous because they were not invited. Keep up the great work and entertainment Nellies!
While visiting DC - we made reservations for the Drag Brunch. Brunch is a buffet with a mimosa or bloody mary. Food is decent, was a little cold, but the atmosphere and show made up for that. Definitely enjoyed our time there. It's best to make reservations as it's usually booked up and crowded.
My group attended Nellie's for two birthday celebrations, most of my group had been there before, but some where new comer's. Both times were outstanding, we all had a wonderful time and will definitely come again and again. The beautiful ladies that make up the staff there could not be any better, they are the best. Also, the food was outstanding, fresh and delicious. The ladies in my group will surely return for another fun filled day. Thanks again.
My friends and I went to Nellie's Brunch on a Saturday afternoon and had a FANTASTIC time! The service is great, food was fantastic (the mimosas aren't bad either...) and the ladies in the show were fabulously amazing! I can't say enough good things about Nellie's! My friends and I can't wait to return!
Amazing from beginning til end I njoyed myself. Great experience very entertaining my birthday wad the best. My guest could not stop tslking about it.
I had a wonderful time. The only thing I wish was that the place was a little bigger because it was great.
Nellies brunch is a definite bucket list to do. We had an awesome time u will definitely go again hopefully before summer ends
Love, Love, Love visiting this place. No matter what time of the year I visit this place, it always leave me wanting more.
Amazing experience and great talent. I plan to attend often
