VISIT you wont be disappointed
This 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!

Recommend Nick's Riverside Grill
My 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.

Good Experience with LS Deal
Great 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!

Wrong 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!

The service was a little slow.
The service was a little slow. We didn't have a server for the first 10 minutes we got there, but someone else decided to cover our table. They may need to add some more servers to keep up with the crowd.

Daniella was superb. Most
Daniella 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.

Nick's is much improved since its renovation. I definitely recommend checking out the restaurant. We really enjoyed ourselves.

Great place. Don't bother asking for outdoor seating just ask to sit next to the open windows along the river.

Excellent 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!

Beautiful Evening on the Water
A 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.

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!

We got more than we were expecting.
I was looking for a nice, reasonably priced restaurant to take a group of friends. Some co-workers suggested Nick's Riverside Grille. I looked at the website and was satisfied that the menu was diverse enough to have something for everybody. We got a lovely inside table that had the panoramic view of the DC waterfront without all the heat and humidity. Everyone in the group was very pleased with their selection. The steamed muscle bowl was a particularly generous portion for an appetizer. Service was good, no complaints.

Love Nick's. The food is great, best mussels in town! The service has always been very good and the servers personable. Sat on the patio by the river watching the boats come in to the harbor. Got the steak salad as an entrée. The steak was tasty. Could have used a bit more salad though, considering it was an entrée. Easy scenic walk from the Foggy Bottom Metro or from the Kennedy Center.

What a view... of the fireworks
We made 7pm reservations for outside and arrived to find out that they only reserve inside... waited 20 minutes inside for a table outside and it was worth the wait... Great service a hopping bar scene full of Georgetown Brats boats and Beer...
Watched the 4th of July Fireworks from our table and couldn't be happier..

And Then There Were 25!
Made an initial last minute Sunday reservation for 6 that kept expanding until there were 25 of us! Nick's handled it without batting an eye. (I did call them though to double check). The service was spectacular! Our party wandered in by goups of 4,5, & 6 but yet,the staff somehow managed to make sure we all wound up eating at the same time! Amazing! Best crabcakes I had in DC the entire weekend! (And I was on the hunt!) Mussels required additional broth so were not as soupy for my bread, but tasty. Great cocktail called the Hot Pickle Martini is perfect for summer! It's not on the menu, but ask Sean or Bo about it. There wasn't a complaint about anything from anyone! I was a rock star for picking the place! Thanks Open Table! ;-)

So I went to Nick's on a first date and must say I was pretty impressed with the location. The inside was very elegant and we got a great window seat. The view of the river was outstanding. The service wasn't the greatest but the lady probably realized we were on a date and let us be. I was probably the most disappointed because there was no bread or anything served as a munchy before the main course. As fancy as it seemed on the inside, I figured this would be standard.
The food was pretty standard. Sounded very fancy on the menu and prices on the higher side (but expected in Georgetown). The taste was fairly normal. I was not blown away by any means. I got the Ricotta and it definately filled me up with room for leftovers.

Came here with a group of 7. We had reservations, but opted to wait for a table outside. We grabbed drinks at the outside bar and enjoyed the view until our table was ready. Service was prompt and patient, as we were more concerned with catching up with eachother then reading the menu. Everyone was happy with they're food and our server was great. I've been to Nicks a few times, and will certainly be coming back again.

I chose this place based on its location to somewhere else we needed to go. The location is beautiful and scenic and makes for a lovely dining experience. The food was good although my daughter wasn't pleased with her kids menu selection, suggested by our server. The replacement was a better fit for her but none of it was very nutritious. Overall it was a good dining experience.

A group of 12 of us enjoyed a wonderful meal at Nicks on August 10. Josh, our server, was attentive, professional and had a great sense of humor. We had a mix of appetizers, salads and full meals and everyone enjoyed their food. The Long Island Iced Teas weren't bad either! Prices are reasonable for the location, and the waterfront offers a nice place to walk around later dinner. Later at night when we walked by, it was clear to see Nick's was a popular spot for socializing. I would definitely go back for a meal. Thanks Nick's, and thanks Josh (aka Jose or Pedro).

It was a great time. It was first time down there in a while. I hadn't been to Nicks before and I was pleased with the decision to go there. Sitting outside with a great view of the water was really nice. It was fun to people watch and enjoy the good food and drink. Seeing the Arlington/Rosslyn area across the water was really pretty, not to mention just the general scene.

Casual Saturday Evening
Nice evening, drinks outside before dinner. Outside bar was large....Ate inside with a party of 7, table was nice, windows behind us opened up to the patio. Felt like we were outside. Menu was limited, but Swordfish was excellent. Other meals were very good!
