Diner Reviews
  • "Came with the family. Food is always great. Our server Clara was great. I love this place."
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "Came here with the family on Monday where kids eat free and made it just as happy hour was still going on. The deals are great, food was amazing, service was awesome. We had Shannon and she was very attentive esp. to the kids food and drinks. We had their wings, ceviche, chix nachos and their special salmon blt taco. Everything was on point. The view is wonderful. They had the doors open so you could really get a great view of the boats and sunset."

  • "We enjoyed a simple lunch at Nippers: a burger for my husband and the guava grilled cheese for me. Both sandwiches were very good, although my husband (a meat & potatoes guy) didn't love the seasoning on his burger. My sandwich was packed with 3 cheeses and sweet guava paste on thick sourdough bread. Accompanying fries (regular for him, sweet potato for me) were hot and crisp. It's great to sit out on the patio, but apparently it was spring break and there were a lot of families with little kids running around. I love kids, but not when they're screaming right behind my head and bumping into my chair as I'm sipping my drink. Not the fault of the restaurant. Next time I'd just choose an indoor table instead. Same view, no sandbox."

  • "Food was excellent. It was a bit loud due to the packed house. If we'd not used open table to make a reservation, our wait would have been ridiculous."

  • "My wife and I were visiting our son. We wanted seafood and Nippers sounded great. We were very pleased. We started with calamari with a very unusual and tasty twist to the marinara sauce. My wife had the Ahai Tuna salad and I have the seared version. We were both vary satisfied. The staff was friendly and attentive. We will return next time are in the area. The only caution is that it is an energetic environment. If you want a quiet meal and talk, it may not be the place for you."

  • "Food was great, service was good for a busy night. Can see the water and many boats while dining. Open kitchen is nice. Sit in thevery back for a more intimate experience."

  • "We dined at Nippers on Saturday evening, we were early and there was only a handful of people in the restaurant. It took about 25 min to get an appetizer of 1 /2 dozen raw oysters and had to keep asking for refills finally at one hour we were server our dinner. It was ok nothing to write home about. The Music was so loud we were having to yell at one another to communicate. No one from the staff to mgt were checking on the guest. Really a bad experience and we showed it through the tip."

  • "We thought Nippers would be a typical waterside bar/restaurant but were blown away by the white-tablecloth quality of the food. Fabulous baked oysters, perfectly prepared swordfish and delicious bacon wrapped shrimp that came with a corn riotto and some damn fine collard greens. We would have tried dessert but the waitress kind of tossed the check at us. We figured she wanted to go home so we paid up and left."

  • "The restaurant ambiance is a little uninspired but has a great waterfront view. The quality of the food more than makes up for the lack of ambiance! My spouse had Shrimp Stuffed Grouper which he said was excellent and I had the 6 oz Filet that was very tender, perfectly cooked (med rare) and had great flavor and was very we'll priced at $22. Our server, Lauren, was attentive and we were well taken care of -- we will be back!"

  • "Everything was great about this place. The only thing I would do different the next time I come is to pay for Valet."

  • "While visiting family in Jacksonville, Fl, they suggested Nippers for dinner on the last night! And since I was a fan of Kenny when he was on Top Chef, I figured this would be a win-win, and boy was I right!!! The atmosphere was very relaxed and comfortable, with a pretty nice view! This food was outstanding. You must try the scallops, shrimp, & fish (salmon)! Everything was delicious! Also, if you are dining with kids and they get the brownie dessert from the kids menu, trust me it is more than enough for the entire table!! Yes, it was that big! LOL Overall, Nippers is an excellent choice for seafood!"

  • "We arrived on a Wednesday which was a slow day apparently. There were a few people eating lunch mostly business types. After we were seated we waited about 10 minutes for our drink order to be taken. Since they were not busy; that seemed poor. Food was very good with the specialty slaw and hush puppies as stand outs. Sauces were excellent particularly their remoulade."
