Love the classic Irish pub scene. Boston does it up wicked well. And so does our hometown - Chicago. Friends from the area insisted upon going to this establishment, citing it was "quite the scene." Enter I and my girls. Can you say

Durty Nellies has the ability to feel like an intimate venue despite its large size, you always feel like you have front row seats to whatever band is playing. The new menu is downright gourmet for pub food and I like that any sandwich or

I've been going to Nellie's for about 4years. I used to go every Tuesday for karaoke. Their food is good. The service I have received has been between good- excellent. I go to quite a few shows there too and I have never had a bad experience. I wouldn't say it's the best place in the world, but I like it and will continue to support it.

Nellies is not a business like you would think. It's a confused ownership of fighting owner/brothers who hire inept people because they are cheaper. The music sucks because they hire inept but cheap sound people, who regularly trash the gear. The people they hire to hire bands and run entertainment are amateurs who think a game of corn hole is the olympics. Bands are screwed regularly unless you can do some Neil Diamond and all 80's covers. Hairbanger's Wig band plays every other week. Yuk! They boast national acts but who wants to see one of the back street boys? Yes the "security" is a pack of hyenas left to their own laws - but they are cheap too. They rob the place regularly. Really, nobody is in charge there. Be careful. Lot's of phony "authority" from the staff at nellies too. They just might be the bus boy causing trouble but you and your girlfriend will get smashed in the process of "security". The restaurant has a great chef, but you could never tell because of the inept service and confusion getting it out to you from the kitchen. NO MILLER. That says enough. Budweiser China crap. Cheap and phony. They should turn it into a municipal theater for children's plays. But - they would screw that up too. Stop in. Spend some dough. The meds they run on must be expensive and they obviously need your support. 3rd rate cover band headquarters. Lousy service, phony "authority" from the hostess right through management, wait people to the entertainment buying and sound people. Expensive beer. Expensive food that takes an hour to get - if at all. They have never gotten it right. NO LOCAL CUSTOMERS. The town people don't even go there anymore. It's like a west Irish mcdonalds or portillo's run by skinheads and aliens. Nothing in the place is Irish anymore. Not one shamrock. Really good location. Needs a new management. Could be awesome if done well. Staff attitudes suck. Good place for a fight now. Shameful really....who's kiddin' who? There are many better places.

Pros: A great time!!

Cons: Occasional knuckleheads!

Durty Nellies is a bar with occasional good music. It's not really the family setting they claim to be, and the bands are ripped off in their pay. But if you're looking for a place to drink, this is your place.

My husband and I recently went here for happy hour Friday night. The pub was friendly, and not very crowded (we ordered our drinks, then grabbed two just-open stools at the bar). I was amazed at the many cool selections of specialty beer

Avoid this place. The cover is excessive. The bouncers charge more in order to steal the difference. They also bloody innocent patrons for no reason and get away with it. Expect to be treated like dog dung. Also they don't serve ANY Miller

This bar i recently went to to see a concert. the venue reminds me of th ehouse of blues. You feel up close and personal with the band. The sound is good.....when it works. When I was there there was a bit of a technical problem but the concert was great that it really didn;t matter!

when they demolished the old Durty Nellie's, they obviously decided to go upscale when building the new one -- an incredible place for music, a great beer selection (including a good belgian selection) and they have some of the best bar
