Diner Reviews
  • "We had a blast spending last Friday night at Nix's. The hostess was so friendly and accomodating to our party, reserving a table in the front for us while we had dinner in the back. The food was INCREDIBLE and the band they had was fantastic. The only issue we had was that our server was pretty non-responsive - forgetting to come over or bring drinks that we ordered, but she was nice and it was pretty crowded in the bar, so I think drinks might have just been taking a while. We will definitely be back next time that band is playing."

  • "We were there for lunch on a Friday with light attendance. The food was very good. I had tuna carpaccio over a salad - a standard menu item which I had to keep pointing out to the waiter where it was on the menu. My guest had salmon entree. The service was abysmal. I ordered iced tea 3 times with 2 different servers. We asked for bread when we received our meals and the server said it would take 10 minutes so we cancelled that. My guest asked for sugar and was brought a container of sugar substitutes with no sugar packets. It was almost impossible to find our server. Not sure I would go back unless they can work out their issues. How sad to have a 4 star meal with 1 star service."

  • "Had a great experience at Nixs Mate recently. Great food, drinks, atmosphere and service. All around a great experience. There was a live band which made it even better. I would definitely go back and recommend to people."

  • "I had a Living Social deal so I was excited to try this place out. Food was average (although the tartar sauce for my fish and chips was AMAZING). The music was obnoxiously loud and at first I thought it was because there was an event going on...nope! Likewise, the music really didn't fit the ambiance of the restaurant. When I asked for my food to be wrapped up, my server came back to the table with boxes so that I could box it up - really?!? Once I paid my bill, I sat at my table for another 30 minutes reading and finishing up my dessert but never saw my server again. Wouldn't go back..."

  • "A friend and I went for lunch and had a mediocre experience. If it weren't for the Living Social deal, I think I would have been a little more upset about the value for the money. The service was the primary issue. Our waiter was almost impossible to understand between the mumbling and accent. He got impatient when we would ask him to repeat himself, and so we basically stopped even trying to understand him. His visits to our table were so infrequent and each time he had to be vigorously flagged down. It took almost 90 minutes to get through our three-course lunch for 2. Food was decent, nothing to rave about (except the tomato soup - that was amazing). Not sure I would go back without a coupon."

  • "Wasn't bad at all, just seemed very average. And my sandwich (Turkey BLT) had very crunchy bread, and was too big to eat. I wouldn't go back, there's better options in the area. Others in my party seemed to enjoy it better though."

  • "Wasn't too impressed with the service in this place and the number of TV screens was overkill. The food was just fair."

  • "Restaurant happened to be next to the hotel I was staying at. Menu had listed "The best Lobster Roll Ever". Bartender said that it was good so I went for it and I can agree it was the best lobster roll I ever had. Warm lobster in a buttery roll."

  • "Great food, great atmosphere! The World Premier Band was phenomenal!! Had a fantastic night! Will definitely be back!"

  • "I really enjoyed the experience (food, service, ambiance). Menu is on the smaller side, but it wasn't tough to find dishes that everyone would like because most items sounded very appetizing. Flatbread pizzas were good appz, the steak frites was a great entree and the chip-wiches were a great way to end the meal. Good food, refreshingly unique menu, decent environment (a little loud and crowded due to the bar crowd, but not bad), would definitely go back again and recommend it to others."

  • "This was a very nice dinner for a Valentine's Day. We happened to be staying at the Hilton. The service was a little spotty at first but the food was amazing. The décor is very nice and the band playing set the mood. The lobster appetizer was amazing but it was very VERY small. The lobster main course was also amazing. I would definitely recommend this to a friend."

  • "Had a wonderful lunch during a week-long stay at the Hilton for the US Figure Skating Championships. The lobster roll, served on a "traditional" looking bun, but made of brioche, was fabulous. The "BIG" chocolate cake (description on the menu) did NOT disappoint. Great meal. Will definitely return the next time we are in the area."
