CONSISTENTLY WONDERFUL FOOD! WE LIVE IN MICHIGAN BUT MAKE SURE TO DINE HERE WHENEVER WE VACATION IN SO CAL. ALWAYS MAKE A RESERVATION. WAIT STAFF IS SUPER HELPFUL IN RECOMMENDING DISHES.
The food and cocktails Nicks never disappoint-especially the butter cake dessert! It is a favorite spot for our special occasions and we especially love sitting outside where the noise level is more conducive to conversation.
Great food, great service. For sure need reservations no matter what day of the week it is, cause it is busy. Loved the grilled artichoke appetizer and fresh Sea Bass entree. Would go back for sure. Parking is tough though because it is in the heart of a beach community.
This was our first time at Nicks; celebrating our wedding anniversary. The staff was tremendous and even gave us an anniversary card signed by the staff! The food and wine were delicious and the butter cake is amazing! I would highly recommend this restaurant!
What an awesome restaurant. Service impeccable, food amazing. It was our 35th Anniversary and they signed a card from the staff and gave to us. An amazing restaurant and I highly recommend
The ambiance and waiter were great! The food was good. The chicken and waffles -chicken and gravy was delicious, but the waffles tasted like grease (probably soaked up oil from waffle iron or chicken). I enjoyed the chilaquiles crispness, but they could use a little more flavor (I had to add salt) but it was good. I went back to have the butter cake and that was amazing!
Nick's was a great experience. We arrived early for our reservation and were seated immediately. The service was quick but patient allowing us to settle in and enjoy our family breakfast on mothers day. The food tasted delicious and the coffee washed it all down nicely. We were never rushed or hurried to leave despite it being a busy day. I appreciated the to go cup of coffee. Everything was excellent and I would recommend Nick's in Laguna.
Great restaurant in the centre of Laguna Beach. The menu had a good selection of dishes and portions are generous. We had the grilled artichokes to start which were delicious.
The staff are knowledgable about how the dishes are cooked and were very attentive without being in your face.
Would definitely recommend. Maybe advisable to book as it gets busy at weekends.
It was good.
Really a wonderful little gem in a great location..a bit loud but it was a weekend and they were packed so it’s to be expected..also to be expected are ‘Laguna prices’..about $25 per person for lunch without a beverage but everything was delicious and I’d been before so it was not surprising.
One of my favorites when visiting this area. Food is always fresh and delicious. Their spin on food and drink items is always special and always a treat for this NC based couple. We just can’t get it at home like Nicks serves it up.
Absolutely loved eating here! Service was among the best we have ever had, and the food was excellent! The staff went out of their way to make our meal special, and we would highly recommend!!
A gem in Laguna Beach we make it a point to visit every time we’re in town. Smallish menu, slightly pricey, but it’s LB and they nail every offering. Good vibe with outstanding service. Sister restaurant in Long Beach is equally good. Haven’t tried South of Nick’s Mexican Kitchen, but it’s on the list.
For me a surprising low rating for this visit. Our waiter had to leave for a break and the lady who took over was rude int that she never addressed my wife. For some reason she only asked if I needed anything and this was consistent over many visits to our table. I had the chicken. While good it was not nearly as good as the Salmon or ribs. Not sure about what my wife had because she was so irritated at the substitute waitress. But we will continue to be eating at Nick's.
Great food. Excellent jalapeño watermelon Margurita!! Friendly staff parking close by
Always a favorite stop when we are in Laguna Beach!
Best place to eat and drink in Laguna Beach. Period. Ask for the carajillo
Great food, huge portions. Normal, well varied menu. Will go bavk
A+++ Delicious food_ Shrimp tacos, deviled eggs are so unique and tasty! Food overall amazing and the margaritas are the so good you can’t stop at one. Service was superb by Michelle, Jordan and the hostess. I’m a foodie this place is on A list can’t wait to go back again.
Second time I've been to Nick's. First time was in San Clemente when a friend took me. I wish they would open one in the Thousand Oaks area where I live.
Nicks as usual is just yummy yummy. Our server was top notch, he was just fantastic. The food was delicious, and we were celebrating so we had the ever perfect butter cake. The restaurant is always catering and thoughtful and on target. Nicks is always a must do for us.
Four stars because we ate at 4pm and were told the baked potatoes weren’t ready until 530pm? Never heard of that one before.
Chicken & waffles were out of this world!! Extremely attentive service.
Great vibe! Celebrated our 29th wedding anniversary. Server made us feel like vip’s. Food was delicious! Complete cocktail choices. Butter cake for dessert was unbelievable!!!!
Very reliable standby— Grilled artichoke and Thai salad with shrimp. Excellent meal
We love coming here. The service is always top notch and the food is outstanding.
All around excellence. Enjoy taking friends there.
One of our favorite restaurants and they never disappoint!!
Food is great. Service is good. It is LOUD! We love it anyway.
Always a great meal... anytime... service was a little off this morning... thinking server had a rough night... but something like this is rare
We loved breakfast at Nicks! The food is so good. It was worth the money. From the moment we walked in to the moment we left the service was top notch. We will definitely be back
Great place. Good food and excellent service.
Good meal, Rachel, our server, was great.
We are regulars at Nick's Pasadena. We recently dined at Nick's South of the Border in San Clemente,
loved that. Laguna Beach followed suit. Food excellent. Energetic vibe in the restaurant. I would recommend Nick's to anyone who asked.
We go to Nicks for weekend breakfast all the time... excellent... we have not been for dinner in a few months(make reservations) it was excellent all the way... great food and great fun... simply go and enjoy.
Also servers Chris and Taylor were excellent
Service was awesome as always!
Overall it was a great experience. The only unfortunate part was the food. I ordered the filet and it was terrible.
Nick's is our go to restaurant in Laguna Beach! It's great for a casual dining experience with a fun ambiance. We sat at the bar this time and had the same great service there! I had thetuna poke that was delicious and my husband had the meatloaf! Great comfort food! The wine list is not extensive but it is great value. We ordered a bottle of Willamette valley wine for under $40! We will definitely be back to Nick's and know that the level of service and food will be consistently great!
We had a wonderful dining experience. The food and service were top notch. Our faves were the grilled artichokes, a must get, the ribs and fried chicken. Well worth the money!
