The food and service was great. The menu recently changed and items we've previously come to enjoy/be favorites are no longer available. But the new options tasted great.

Nick's Lobster is a reasonably priced restaurant for lobster. The ambiance is almost non-existent, it's rather noisy and decor is eh. However, the food is excellent and our server, Ben, was attentive. In fact, if we needed something, every passing server was responsive. I would definitely return.

This is a great place to stop if you are going to a show at the Kings Theater, since it is on Flatbush ave. I would say give yourself at least 45mins to get there since traffic is busy on that road. The food is great a Nick’s large portions and the staff is excellent. We are going back.

I think I should've ordered something else on the menu; I got the seafood risotto and it was great for the first few bites then took a turn for cloyingly savory (I started to taste some weird flavor). My server was GREAAATTT and the venue itself was pretty (rustic chic with water views). I'd go back and try something else. My boyfriend enjoyed his order (seafood skewers) and I enjoyed stealing off of his place.

I wish I lived closer, happened to be in the area, celebrating my nephew's graduation to NYFD Paramedic
(YEAH, Jake!) and found Nick's in Trip Advisor looking for seafood for lunch. Awesome, from the bloody mary's to the blue point oysters and lobster bisque to the lobster rolls, fish tacos and seafood risotto. Seth was a joy of a waiter and impromptu bartender. Sat on the enclosed patio overlooking a canal. It was all very special!

Overall nice dining experience
To celebrate a birthday. Service was friendly and prompt. Pacing the meal could have been a bit better. Appetizer and soup were practically served together. Fish tacos, lobster bisque and chowder were excellent. The seafood kebabs had potential but seemed to be steamed instead of broiled or grilled which would have improved the experience. It was plentiful however. Lobster roll was ok.
Passed the place many times..glad to have gone.

Great place. Great Food. Great Service. All with a waterfront view. Met our friends from New Jersey here for our third annual holiday dinner, since this restaurant is a good midpoint. The women had wedge salads and mussels (different types) and loved them. The men had fish tacos, burgers and seafood risotto.

This is our second time here...because of our first experience! The first was for lunch before a Bruno Mars concert at Barclays. We had baked clams, lobster and the seafood risotto. for a great, leisurely lunch with a waterfront table. Food was delicious and service was great. Both times we were here for lunch and it was not crowded at all, although it was off season. Great place to meet and eat!

Went to Nick's Saturday evening for dinner. It was relatively early (6pm) so it was not very crowded. The waitress was very pleasant and helpful with recommendations. The food came out quickly, too quickly. The appetizers were immediately followed by the salads and the main courses arrived before the first courses were finished. The food was good but very pricey.

Nick's has been one of our go-to places for special dinners the past few years. Pros: Lovely waterfront dining; friendly, courteous service; beautiful complimentary birthday dessert. Cons: Food was disappointing and not up to its usual standards. Normally, I would enthusiastically recommend Nick's, but not after this latest outing, sorry to say. Hopefully, this was just a temporary misstep.

Went there before a concert at Barclays Center. Our waiter, Manny, was friendly, professional and attentive. Shared a baked clams appetizer then we had the Risotto Seafood dinner and the Twin Baked Lobster Tails. Prosecco and Chardonnay were great accompaniments. Nice waterfront view, nicely maintained restaurant. We will be back but never to Barclays Center, which had horrible parking, acoustics, etc. We frequently meet friends in Brooklyn and Nick’s Lobster House is at the top of our list !
