    We booked for a sunday afternoon, late 530-600, got there a little early, walked around the area, got to restaurant, and the place was CLOSED for renovations. No wonder there were reservations available on a sunday afternoon. Should they have blocked out the days for the reno? wont go back just for that.

    The menu didn't offer much in the way of imaginative items, but the burger and fries were excellent, tender, very tasty meat and toppings with crunchy fries. Salad was limp. Our server was super...attentive and knowledgable.

    We were pleasantly surprised to find this little gem of a restaurant on Plymouth's waterfront. It's hidden by a busy business in front and not easy to find but by far has the best view in town. The menu was not extensive but the food was excellent. Service was great and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Worth a visit and we will be back.

    Our first time at this restaurant, have been many times at other ones around Nix's. Had low expectations to be honest but we got impressed - food was very good, had burger sliders to start (really yummy). Entree - we ordered from "specials" NY steak & shrimp over mashed potatoes, portions were big and plate was only $20 for a big steak & huge shrimp - you can beat that price! We will definitely going back. The only cons are that their menu is pretty limited but what we had was beyond our expectations.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 6/7/2014
    We would rate this restaurant a C at best. While the inside of the restaurant was empty, our server kept complaining about how "slammed" she was. Service was slow and inconsistent. When we questioned why the menu was so different from the one online she said that the new chef hadn't updated it yet. And when we asked if we could get something off that old menu, the chef said no. Food came out at different times, and was average at best. I had hoped to save my appetite for dessert, but they offer their "speciality", an ice cream sandwich, and nothing else. Not very appetizing for someone, like me, with dairy sensitivity! Won't go back.

    Went for Mothers Day dinner at 5Pm and were very disappointed. They had LIVE music and it was so loud we were yelling to each other and our server. Not what most moms envision on Mothers Day. Service was just ok. Not enough staff..Kitchen was super slow...Its too bad. Its a nice location. Menu was lacking but food was actually good. Kids choices not so great. They were out of chicken nuggets and didnt have many other choices..

    I live and work in Plymouth, I remember when the property was the Mayflower Restaurant. I have not been to Nix's before. I took my family for Easter Dinner and was very happy with our experience. The facility, staff, beverages, food and prices were great. I am a single parent and it is great to be able to afford to take my family out for dinner. Thank you for a very nice experience we will be back soon.

    The restaurant was almost empty as we had an early reservation. The bartender ended up being our waiter. We waited over 15 minutes for our drink order to be taken. This gave us plenty of time to comment on how dirty the place was. The girls in the group would not put their bags down on the floor as there was food mashed into the carpet. We waited another 15 minutes for the drinks to be served. There was a lot of ice and the slightest hint of liquor. Three people in the party ordered the clam chowder and it was awful. The rest of the meals were average at best.

    The menu is limited and the food is just average. I had the steak tips which were very good but the mashed potatoes where cold. My sister had the bacon rapped salmon and said it was just ok and would not order it again. My friend had the classic chicken sandwich which he said was good and his wife had the fish and chips which she enjoyed. We all split two chocolate chip cookie sandwich cookies for dessert and the cookies where good but very hard and not warm and chewy as the waitress had described.

    It was Christmas day and they were open. We found the food to be very good and the ambience very nice. The manager, Candy waited on us and was a very good ambassador for the place. She made us feel welcome and despite taking care of the bartender duties as well as waiting tables, provided very good service. Can't wait to try this place in warm weather because they have an outside deck. Great location right at the wharf. Great clam chowder. Definitely recommend this spot.

    sadly we had a very negative experiance - arrived at 7:30pm, no one at front, waited and waitied and waited to be seen and seated. then food was terrible - shrimp appetizer consisted of 3 small shrimp extremely overcooked and not well cleaned. then had a medicocre steak with lobster - lobster was browned with black crunchy pieces of something in it. other entree was fried seafood platter - scallops were also very overcooked. our server was very attentive and tried, but there seemed to be only 2 servers and no host, manager or bartender - these 2 had to run the whole restaurant. perhaps if sombody actually managed this place, it could be better.

    I was disappointed over all. The server was pleasant the bar was empty (On a Friday?) and the food was very average. I've lived in Plymouth for 38 years and was hoping I found a new gold mine but this wasn't the case. The place was nice but it was really lacking something. The menu was limited and I was shocked that there was NO white fish as an option and you are on the waterfront? Other than fish tacos and fried seafood? That's a NO NO in Plymouth. If the mashed potatoes were not instant than I am a LIAR. The place has potential, but needs a menu re-vamp and something to lue the locals in as they will be the ones that sustain you in the winter

    THE ENTIRE NIGHT WAS NOTHING BUT WAITING AND WAITING. AFTER GETTING SEATED WE WAITED 20 MINUTES FOR 3 BEERS AND A PITCHER OF SANGRIA. WAITED FOR ANOTHER 20 MINTUES UNTIL OR WAITRESS SAID THE KITCHEN WAS BACKED UP (even though the place was less than half full) AND THEN WE WERE TOLD AFTER ANOTHER 15 MIN. THAT THE SLIP WAS LOST IN THE KITCHEN. WE WERE NEVER ASKED IF WE WANTED WATER OR ANY BREAD, HARDLY EVER CHECKED UP ON, AND WHEN WE DID ORDER IT TOOK WAY WAY TO LONG FOR OUR ITEMS TO ARRIVE..EVERY DRINK ORDER TOOK WAY TO LONG AND THE FOOD PORTION ALSO TOOK WAY TO LONG. THE FOOD WAS OK BUT NOTHING BETTER THAN THAT AND THE SERVICE WAS HORRIBLE. IT NEVER SEEMED LIKE THERE WAS ANY MANAGING OR SUPERVISION. EXTREMELY HORRIBLY RUN AND SOON TO CLOSE.

    I was under the impression that it was a restaurant, not a bar. And maybe that is why i was not happy. I ask for my salmon cooked med well and it was med rare, also was no manager in sight. Took forever, even tho it was a tuesday. So maybe for drinks is good. For dinner? Dont recomend. The server was more than attentive. I felt sorryfor him. He was embarrased about my overral experience.

    I believe it could be a much better restaurant if they had more experienced help and a better chef in the kitchen. The food was average. I could have gotten a similar meal at the 99 Restaurant. The location is right on the waterfront and the décor inside is very nice and relaxing. They had a singer and guitarist playing and that was nice. The worst part was the service. The hostess didn't have any clue where to sit us. The waitress we were given just had a customer walk out on her. The table next to us was asked their order twice by two different waitresses because they didn't know who had the table. It took us 34 minutes to get our drinks after we were served and then when we got our meal it was soggy. We would not go again.

    It is a beautiful restaurant but does not attract customers. Even though when we got there at 7pm there where very few customers. By time we left we were two of four people left. The Carpaccio salad consisted of a bed of arugula with 3 s lices of Tomato and 3 slices of Mozzarella for $12.00 Both of our dinners were okay, I did have to send my dish back and the mistake was fixed

    This was my second time at Nix's and not as good as my first experience. First time we went waitress and food was excellent. This time the server was not very attentive and the food was mediocre. My friend ordered 2 different dishes and both were out. My other friend ordered a well done burger that was pink to almost red in the center, which made her bun soggy. She ate very little of it but the waitress didnt ask why. We had the calamari for an appetizer and we've all had better elsewhere. The peppers on the dish were great but the calamari itself was bland. We weren't asked if we wanted dessert but we would have.

    Both my wife and I recently went to next for anniversary dinner. Upon entering we were warmly greeted and my wife was wished happy anniversary which was fantastic. We ate outside. Service was great. I ordered the ribs – the best ribs I think I've ever had. My wife had the salmon wrapped in bacon. She couldn't say enough good things about this. Will definitely be back here sooner rather than later.

    This restaurant shows the flavor of downtown Plymouth. The overall dining experience was a good one. Of the 5 dishes that were served, all were good; 3 very very good while the other 2 were good but unimaginative. Service was okay for a very busy night. Staff was very cordial & table was ready on time. I traveled one hour to get there but will definitely be back!

    Dined on 8/16/2013
    My husband and I went for dinner on a Friday night. The waiter, Sean came over immediately and was super nice and very friendly. After ordering drinks which came quickly we ordered appetizers and main courses. I wasn't half - way done with my salad when the waiter reappeared with our entrees. He said, "sorry, these came out kinda fast." So rather than delay our food to the table to allow us finish our first course, my clams with linguini sat on the table getting cold for another 10 minutes or so while I finished my salad. The place was empty and there's absolutely no reason for the food to be rushed out. I HATE IT when I am not done with one course and the next arrives. The waiter knew it was a mistake - not intention of going back. :-(

    It has the potential of a waterfront gem, but with small portions and high prices it will not be able to compete with other locales within two feet of its doors. I commend the interior designer on the unique steel tables juxtaposed with wood grain flooring and walls. Past the extensive bar with televisions there is another bar with more seating, and then finally patio with yes, a third bar. Attentive service was great, and the manager came around to ask how we are doing, however their t-shirts had brass knuckles with "play nice." I got my thimble of $5 "cup" of bisque (bowl is $8) as well as fish tacos (2 for $15) and my wife received her underwhelming chicken with a side of corn bread the size of an aspirin.

    Four adults were looking for outdoor dining with a water view in Plymouth. We also wanted a restaurant that was a bit more upscale than one offering primarily fried foods and bar foods. We happened upon this restaurant on line, made a reservation. We sat on an outdoor patio that was surrounded by a white fence which took away the view of the harbor. Aubrey the server was very attentive and did a good job. My husband had the lobster sliders and he said they were good, I had the shrimp scampi , the pasta was overcooked and the sauce was cloying, the fried fishermen's platter was another choice and was fine , last was the fish tacos and while good the fish was not too plentiful. The FF were great. We wld try again.
