Casual dining. Have ordered takeout before, but a hot plate in their bright and airy dining room, is the way to go.

Nice comfortable restaurant, family style, not extravagant but don't let that fool you. The food is absolutely awesome!! For those that like to partake of a cocktail....the bar is right across the entry way. Check it out you will not regret it!

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.
