Nick's Riverside Grille
Beautiful View!We really enjoyed Nick's Riverside Grille -- the view of the Potomac and surrounding landmarks was amazing -- the food was delicious and drinks were great -- and our waiter was very friendly and attentive! We plan to go back next year!6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful Evening on the WaterA cousin was in town, so we took her to Nick's. The hostess was extremely nice and when I asked if we could have a "fun" table, she took us out on the river walk so we could enjoy the evening. Our server was very nice and did a good job of being attentive, but gave us time to enjoy. I had shrimp po boy, which was good. Cousin had crab cake sandwich which she thought was good and husband had fish & chips. I tried his and it was good as well. I like this restaurant and will be back, but do realize it is a bar so while all the food was good, there are other places in town that have better food without the view.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ViewExcellent location on Potomac in the Georgetown Harbor and 2 blocks from old Georgetown. Wonderful, very friendly service. Just outstanding , broad menu. Different and delicious shrimp fettuccini. Only the smoking outside along the harbor spoils the setting, but the staff was extremely accommodating in moving my family including children. I still will come back here and enjoyed the entire visit!5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect AfternoonWe all enjoyed our meals, the wine, service and atmosphere. And the weather cooperated too.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is very good!! TheThe food is very good!! The calamari was my favorite!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place. Don't botherGreat place. Don't bother asking for outdoor seating just ask to sit next to the open windows along the river.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat evening out on the RiverGreat evening out on the River watching the college Crew teams practice4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMBig improvementNick's is much improved since its renovation. I definitely recommend checking out the restaurant. We really enjoyed ourselves.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMDaniella was superb. MostDaniella was superb. Most of the food was great. My "medium well" steak was a smidgen tough but I was starving so I didn't complain. Crab cakes were delicious. The service staff was incredibly accommodating!
One thing though: I mentioned it was for my grandmothers 90th and we were seated at high top tables -- kinda thoughtless but she's in good shape so she could get up into the seats ok. Just wonder if I should have reinforced that age thing during my confirmation phone call. Thankfully the tall tables had well placed footrests. These are small nitpicky observations. The day was awesome and if I had any real complaints I would have made them known at the time. I didn't have any complaints.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWrong but in End Oh So Right!Initial impression was going downhill when they said the Groupon we were planning on using was not good for brunch. I reminded them I had called ahead and asked if it would be useable and was told yes. After the manager came to table and explained that brunch was special I repeated that I was told it was usable, she said they would honor it.
After that it was great ...service was very attentive, drinks were strong, food was great and served piping hot, Had the recommended window seat which was great people watching (and dogs too!)
Definitely plan to return in warmer weather and sit outside!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat view on harbor pre,Great view on harbor pre, post or during meal. Terrific service for birthday dinner of 14. Food good to very good.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Experience with LS DealGreat view of the Potomac River from upper dining room and outdoor patios. Came with a Livingsocial deal and had a couple of burgers and beers. Burgers were cooked perfectly and very tasty, though the side of fries could have been hotter and more generous. I would definitely consider returning for drinks on the patio!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMRecommend Nick's Riverside GrillMy date and I had a great time at Nick's Riverside Grill. The food was excellent and the service was like we were the only ones there. We went at night and had a nice view of the Potomac River, Kennedy Center, etc. the fountain in the little plaza is a great draw as well. Would definitely recommend going back in the warmer months (we went in March) to get the chance to sit and fine outside. Overall, we had a wonderful time.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMI haven't been since they'veI haven't been since they've remodeled and the remodeled space looks great! The upper dining area now has huge windows, which, when open, are even with the sidewalk outside (the dining area is lower than the sidewalk). Be sure to ask for one of the window tables. The view is great. The food isn't bad, but the menu is limited. Service was very good and the waitress was very friendly.1/29/2013 12:00:00 AMVISIT you wont be disappointedThis location is also owned by Tony and Joes. The lunch menu had the basic items, chicken wings, salad, ribs, but they were outstanding and the prices were great!1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
