Diner Reviews
  • "we frequent this restaurant for brunch as a treat or special occasions. Food quality and dining al fresco with friends and family is priceless."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "Went for dinner with my husband and at the beginning we weren't sure if it would be good because the music was very loud inside the restaurant. However the food was so good that the music didn't bother that much and we had a nice time."

  • "Party of 6 on a Saturday nite in June. We were the only guests in dining room. Can not comment on lunch/drinks/group/bar,etc. Very pleasant ambience. We had a lovely and obviously quiet dining expenence. Food was good, nicely apportioned. Did have to get waitress to refill water glasses. Relatively small menu selection for salads and entrees."

  • "Of four of us, three had the panko crusted grouper. It was outstanding! Maybe the best snapper I've had. The other diner had salmon, which she said was excellent also. We asked for Charles to be our server, but he was managing that evening, but saw to it that we were well taken care of. We sat outside, which was delightful and quieter than inside where country music was blaring. Drinks were excellent. For wine , I highly recommend the Pine Ridge Forefront, an excellent cab."

  • "Nick & Johnnie's location is spot on for Palm Beach island. It's a nice looking restaurant, very kid friendly, we enjoyed dining at the back patio. My lobster risotto was nice but not spectacular. I couldn't say our food was amazing, it was just 'nice'. Our waitress was very pleasant. She offered candy floss to our kids which was a treat & went down well!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "N & J is our preferred brunch spot. The hostess was very kind, helpful and accommodating for our family celebrating a special occasion. Wait staff seems to rotate a bit making it inconsistent in service, knowledge of menu, attentiveness, accommodations and preferences."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Fresh seafood, creative menu and great staff make NJ's one of my favorites. Tuna tacos, calamari, and great burgers too. Get the donuts (beneighs) for dessert!"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "We live in the area and go to N&J's regularly. Tried the chicken salad BLT this time - delicious! As always, love the tater tots."
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "Came for lunch - delicious as usual. Tried breakfast tacos for the first time and loved them! Tater tots were yummy."

  • "Very courteous service and good food prepared well. Nice ambiance whether you sit inside or out or try their atrium area."

  • "we went here because it was close to the hotel. I think it would be better for breakfast or lunch - would go again, but try to sit outside"
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "I was hoping for a memorable meal on palm beach but got a mediocre meal with limited service and smoke in my wife's face from a cigarette lot at the table next to us. "
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "Brunch at 11 - not prepared until nearly noon - choices limited and quality poor. Never again! "
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "We enjoyed a superb Saturday night dinner at Nick & Johnnie's. Seafood was really fresh and portion sizes were appropriate, not too big but enough. Mussels as an appetizer are actually perfect main and risotto was creamy and soft. The wine list is very complete and the beer selection was good too. We did not have dessert but enjoyed some Easter chocolate eggs!"
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "The hot bread topped with the olive oil is to die for. The crab cake was 100% crab meat-no filler and scrumptious. The quinoa, edamame, beet and kale salad was very good. The food prices are reasonable for the location of the establishment (Palm Beach) and the portions offered. Chef very accommodating to make foods right when sent back to kitchen I really didn't find the staff to be very friendly, but very business-like, methodical, and without too many smiling faces. Be sure to ask not to be seated at the table by the kitchen door- very busy area with the food coming and going."

  • "Was down in the area and looking for a place to eat and although it didn't sound like an absolute positive from reviews on Trip Advisor, we loved it. My Steak tacos called for guacamole, which didn't appear on my platter, but once I mentioned that I was provided with a small bowl. The other two dishes, the Green Thai curry and the fresh snapper of the day were all excellent. "

  • "If ur looking for a scene it doesn't get started til after 9pm. When the,crowd changes from early birds to younger crowd with DJ on Saturday night. A party bus pulled up with a bachelorette party which hit the bar for shots and then headed down the block. We were seated right away. Service was prompt, our waiter was very attentive. Food was very good. Shrimp cocktail salmon appetizer, skirt steak, tuna. it was all good. We didn't have a stomach ache 3hrs later..lol we don't drink so couldn't say if wine list was good. I would recommend this restaurant for good seafood n late atmosphere."

  • "This was our second time at N and J's, and we brought friends. The service was terrific, very friendly and helpful. I was able to have a menu item slightly changed because our server took the time to talk to the chef about it. Our vegan friend was able to find several items on the menu that she liked. We all enjoyed the food and drinks. I would certainly recommend Nick and Johnnie's!"

  • "My wife and I traveling on Holiday. We picked this restaurant based upon the Open Table comments and menu. We LOVED it. Great location, outdoor seating, simple but elegent. Blue jeans and dress shorts acceptable. Easy parking valet or on side streets."

  • "Although our server was perfectly pleasant and polite, our service was a bit slow, but we were at an awkwardly placed table for 2 between a 6 top and a 4 top. Food was great as usual. The bottomless mimosas are great and the tater tots are easily the biggest and best side dish on the Island!"

    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "Nice indoor and outdoor seating. Menu wasn't overwhelming but tuna tacos and calamari were great. Also had the tuna for dinner which was excellent. Pricing for palm beach was very reasonable and the service was great. Would recommend."

  • "We both had a very good meal. Drinks are overpriced but it's Palm Beach."

  • "Went on Valentine's Day to give it a try. Contrary to other reviews the service was very good - attentive, came through quickly on all my requests, etc. The menu had very interesting selections on it with a variety of ingredients in each dish. The food was quite good, and the portions were generous. Although many would consider it pricey, I find it to be in line with other restaurants in the area of the same caliber. I would like to see a more extensive wine list. I would definitely go back again."

  • "Second time we've gone to this restaurant. Wouldn't return and from the crowd, or lack thereof, on a Friday night - in a great location when every other restaurant in Palm Beach is jammed - this place was half empty. Service non-descript - dull menu and the food was no better. Lots of potential for improvement - but doubt it will happen. Won't waste the money to give it another try"
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "The food was average. Service and setting were good. Might be better for lunch than for dinner. Walking distance from The Breakers."
    Dined on 1/16/2014
  • "Although the food was nothing special - one more piece of fish stacked on top of vegetables - the band was outstanding and the absence of a cover charge much appreciated. There should have been a larger audience for the band."

  • "I love Nick and Johnnie's. I generally go for the Sunday brunch, which is fun and a great opportunity to sit outside and reenergize for the new week. This was the first time I went for dinner and it was good. I let them know, via opentable, it was my friend's birthday and they put up a sign that wished her a happy birthday. However the birthday girl ordered the Curry Seafood Bowl and it was bland. The Pepper Tuna, Panko Fish and Scallops were all lovely. Her's was not so lovely."

  • "We loved the staff being dressed in the "cloud 9" angel theme; . However, the theme didn't relate to the rest of the restaurant. For example, you could have had an angel cocktail and a devil drink. It would have helped to have more experienced bartenders Thankfully our lobster tacos and snapper dishes were spot on, topped off with chocolate gelato over chocolate lava cake! I wish that there was more staff available to help bus the tables, especially when you know how many reservations you have. While back at the bar, the DJ could hardly be heard and no one had the New Years Eve ball drop on the television(until I asked to put it on). I think that a little more attention to details was lacking. Where were the bosses?"

  • "What a spectacular find to be open on Christmas Day. We eat here several times a year and love the outdoor dinning on the main drag in palm beach. Great site seeing and people watching. Too find it opened on Christmas Day was a bonus. The place was crowded and lightly staffed due to the holiday but I won't hold it against them. We love this place and the food is great."
