I have been going to Nick and Johnnie's for years and this was a horrible experience. I had a friend in town who never had stone crabs, so I called the restaurant and they told me they had some. We ordered two claws each, had one glass of wine a each, and the bill was $181.00 -- not including tip. When the waitress told me the claws were $35 each, I assumed that they were the Colossal size claws. They were not. They were probably medium, large at best. One of them was a bit mangy, with almost all of the meat sticking to the shell. They appeared to have been refrozen and all of the taste was gone. In addition, our waitress was a bit ditzy. And we had to ask for bread. Had Nick been there, I would have spoken to him, but since my friend was paying the bill, I did not want to say anything. Please pass this along to Nick. My friend now does not understand the beauty of Stone Crabs Claws -- and thinks that they -- and Nick and Johnnies -- are nothing but a rip off.
Service was horrible
Food was bad
We always enjoy N&J's. Tried the southern fried chicken for the first time..,out of this world!
My budding family frequents both N&J as well as Cucina Del Art because the food is always fabulous, lovely ambiance and the service is family friendly. Tonight was not the case. Even though it was a slow Tuesday night, service was absentminded (forgetting my children's dinner order) and frustrating. We had to ask twice for everything from our high chair, drinks, appetizer plates, the list goes on. Hopefully it was an exception!
Disappointing. fish tacos were soggy, absolutely no flavor. server was inattentive. Appreciated taking 15% off the bill; but doesn't make up for bad food and fair service.
Six of us dined for a special night. We had very poor service from a waiter who got everything wrong. Brought an appetizer that wasn't ordered - but insisted that it was, described a special as a "stew" - it was a fish pasta. Four out of six people returned their food. I recommended the spot, it was a mistake and embarrassing.
While it's usually a good choice,it must have been an off night for the chef.
Dried up fish, inadequate amount of the sauce. Pasta special was fair. Mediocre service. Going downhill?
Food was okay, not great but it was okay, I had the crab cake and it did not taste all that fresh, I didn't bother to finish it. Had a reservation time, but were seated a half hour later, and we were seated in what might be the worst seat in the house and it was not all that packed. Waitress was very nice though.
Great service and great food
We came to Nick and Johnnies for the first time on Valentine's Day and although it was busy our service was excellent. The patio seating was terrific and the food outstanding!
We will be back!
The service was terrible, and the food came out cold with a soggy bun on the sandwich. Overall it was an awful experience, except for the nice weather and outside seat.
Nice place for dinner
The worst nachos ever. Horrible, non attentive service. All around bad dinner experience. Fine for lunch or brunch.
