This is a seated brunch, please make sure you arrive on time. The ticket you purchase is your reservation. No need to call ahead for a table reservation. When you arrive, Nellie’s Fabulous Hostess will ask how many people are in your party, scan all your tickets, and seat you all together.

Large Groups are always welcome. You must all arrive on time and be present if you wish to be seated together.

Refund requests need to be submitted 24 hours or more before the showtime on your ticket. Anyone more than 30 minutes late will lose their reservation without a refund.

We recommend using Metro Rail. Nellie’s is 1 block from the U St.- African American Civil War Memorial station. Please factor in plenty of travel time!
