    What a spectacular find to be open on Christmas Day. We eat here several times a year and love the outdoor dinning on the main drag in palm beach. Great site seeing and people watching. Too find it opened on Christmas Day was a bonus. The place was crowded and lightly staffed due to the holiday but I won't hold it against them. We love this place and the food is great.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 12/2/2013
    Everything about our experience was positive. Except the last time we ate @ Nick & Johnnie's we had some of the largest and freshest Oysters, we've ever eaten. This time they were not very impressive. However, the service was great and our request for the table we enjoy in the bar was met. Although we had a disappointment with the Oysters, the rest of our meal was perfect! Our server was attentive.......and always with a large smile.

    Always stop in at Nick & Johnny's when in town. Food is always great as well as atmosphere. Little pricey for what you get sometimes but it is Palm Beach, so if you were expecting a bargain, forget it.

    The weather was beautiful so we chose a table outside - couldn't have had a nicer ambience. The restaurant fully decorated the outside eating area so you actually felt like you were "inside". Great quesadilla's! Scallops were awesome (though a tad pricey).

    We went for my wife"s birthday. The managment and staff discretely went out of their way to make our experience a little extra special. Our server was knowledgeable about the menu and wine choices, attentive without being intrusive. Portion sizes were generous. Everyone at my table enjoyed what they ordered.

    The food is always consistent and They do a great job of turning out quality food. The service is not always consistent. It can be slow and tedious. Sitting up front on the patio is best but it can be incredibly noisy since Royal Poinciana is a busy street.

    We found out the reservations we set was for 30 mins. before the restaurant open when I call to say we may be a few minutes late. We were the only table who did not receive bread service. I met the first Sangria I didn't like and I thought the food was a little over priced for what you are getting. I did enjoy my half a sandwich (turkey), soup (corn chowder) and chips. My significant other had 3 tacos which he enjoyed. Besides the fact that I spent my lunch looking at my servers nipples because her shirt was unbutton way too far down, she was nice and very attentive to her regular customers. Unfortunately it's not just about the food for us. Service and experience are as much part of tasting food as actually tasting it!

    We had dinner on the porch outside and the noise from the bar inside was still rather loud. Service was slow (I think they were understaffed the night we were there), but the bartender was very friendly and served most of our meal (actually when the person who was our official server came to our table we weren't sure who she was). Food was very good, and we will be back again. Love the different bowls and the ability to choose protein to go with them.

    The ceviche was a perfect start to a lovely and delicious evening. Scallops were perfectly cooked, fish and vegetables were also perfect. Rombauer Chardonnay was a perfect match, and the server allowed us all the time we wanted, but checked on us often to ensure that we needed nothing. Excellent evening!

    If you like eating around all of the above, this may be the place for you. The best thing about this place was our waiter. That's it. Rude patrons with dogs and middle aged men looking to smoke cigars and drink while using bad language around my kids. I have to blame the four seasons for sending us to this below par place.

    The place was great with a very nice breakfast and brunch menu. The service was pretty good with respect to the servers. I am surprised that the food took forever to come out. This was an unnatural amount of time for breakfast type food. When did finally arrive, it was good but wow did it take forever. I was surprised that they did not offer free refills on the OJ as a gesture because the food took so long. I guess folks just put up with it. We will go back but maybe a little closer to lunch when their folks in the kitchen are good and awake!

    Dined on 6/22/2013
    Nick and Johnnie's is a good seafood restaurant. It is busy and there is minimal inside seating. I thought the service was fair not outstanding. The waitress was not very consistent in answering questions about the menu and drinks. I thought the seafood was good but nothing outstanding as far as a house special. I would rate them with a restaurant like Bone Fish. I am a well traveled person that enjoys all varieties of food and atmospheres. Nick and Johnnie's is a good place to get fresh seafood in the Palm Beach area.

    Nick and Johnnie's is a really nice spot on Palm Beach Island. You can get a pretty decent meal and the people watching is fun. A mix of Palm Beach elite and others of the not-so-elite crowd co-mingling. Their crispy tuna tacos are delicious and their burgers are pretty tasty.

    It was extremly humid at 6:30PM. Lots of tables outside that looked more comfortable then our high top inside. We had reservations however the few tables inside were mostly for four people. The only table for two was very small so we sat at a high top. I would good back but only on a night less humid and less rainy.

  • When a reservation is made
    4tofu
    Dined on 4/28/2013
    When a reservation is made for a specific time that reservation should be honored within 5 minutes of its specific time and not be told that the patrons have dined longer than expected, poor management. The food was above average but not as special as many catering to that demographic. The service was good but the food server was not made aware of which entree should go be served to each diner. The restaurant was noisy. Overall, it was an enjoyable experience but not one to revisit reguarly.
