$20 for $40 worth of food at Nellie's is a real bargain. This is down-home, tasty food--soul of Oakland. The fried chicken has tons of flavor and doesn't feel greasy. The collard greens are cooked just right and have a good ham flavor. The fried snapper is crisp and tender. Plus you can get a cocktail while you're waiting for your food. Don't be scared off by the location--it may be next to the freeway, but it's well worth finding.

Sweet potato pie is on the menu, but they never have it, so don't go if the pie is the reason for going.

This restaurant was just ok. I've been to plenty of soulfood places and this place was just avg. I had the fried catfish. I generally don't like my fish fried too hard but this was for me. The greens were ok. Did not like the rice and gravy. The corn bread was good though. I just left the establishment feeling like I wouldn't be totally mad if I didn't come back. The place did look clean, they have pics of the first family everywhere lol. They even have a bar of the side of the restaurant for those that just wanted to come for a drink while listening to music. Definitely an older feeling crowd.Kind of unmemorable.

From Our Editors

In the heart of Oakland, the chefs at Nellie's Soulfood Restaurant & Bar draw from Southern soul-food traditions to craft a menu that's always changing. Many of their seafood, poultry, and beef dishes bear crispy golden crusts. Deep-fried oysters, catfish, and snapper fillets—as well as deep-fried pork chops and chicken wings—sit surrounded by traditional sides such as yams, okra, and rice and gravy. Gravy also covers portions of Southern-style steaks and complements specialty dishes such as meatloaf and oxtails. Traditional Southern desserts of peach cobbler and banana pudding end things on the sweetest note possible, much like the duet of "Islands in the Stream" that traditionally ends every presidential debate.
