Nellis Tavern is a historic inn and tavern located at St. Johnsville in Montgomery County, New York. It was built about 1750 as a farmhouse and expanded about 1790 to its present form. It is a 2-story, five-by-two-bay frame residence constructed atop a coursed rubblestone foundation. After the American Civil War the tavern business declined and the building became a family farmhouse again.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.[1]
