Was here for a retirement party for a co worker. Two bar areas, the main bar and a larger music room that caters to live music. Interestingly enough, the larger music room does not have the same selection of liquor as the smaller bar area....More

Went here for lunch on a weekend. Service was fast and friendly, for the most part. Menu looked a bit expensive on the whole, but there was a $6 lunch special, even though it was the weekend, and the meal was good and filling. There...More

Durty Nellie's is a great place for a casual dinner or drinks after work. Conveniently located across from the train station in Palatine--it has daily specials and a huge array of imported beers.

Bar is open until 3:00am and the kitchen closes at 10 pm. No bar menu. Rude staff and not well trained in customer service.

Whether it is family, couples or girl's night out...Durty Nellie gives us great food with atmosphere. One doesn't have to go on a Fri night with bands to enjoy the atmosphere.

We dine and imbibe here frequently. The menu is mainly bar food, but it is very well prepared and certainly ample. The beer list is expansive and ever-changing. Most importantly, the restaurant/bar is really friendly, cozy and warm, like a real neighborhood pub. The owners...More
