GREAT EXPERIENCE.....GOING BACK SOON..............A++++++++
Great experience from the minute we came in until we left. Staff very friendly and anticipated our needs
Above and beyond.
Amazing food. We are all picky eaters with food allergies and there were no issues with our order and our food was incredible. We talked about it the entire day and next day.
We had a real nice dinner it was great to be out at a restaurant we would recommend Nick's to any of our friends
We went inside to be seated and chose a table in front of the fire outside. It was very empty and the service was great. My lady had the crab cakes and I had the burger. Both we very delicious. In addition we had two drinks each. Would go back the next time I’m on the waterfront.
Service was extremely disappointing. Will no longer consider Nicks as an option when I’m looking for a meal at the harbor.
Great location and ambiance but the food is marginal at best. Caesar salad overpriced and served with wilted brown lettuce.
Met with some friends for drinks and desert. Very pleasant experience, and perfectly socially distanced. I will come back in the future.
The restaurant is awesome it’s one of my favorite places . I attended to go on my birthday however the server only came to get our food order and never came back to check on us and when we asked for the bill he kept rushing us out. The people who were sitting behind us he catered to them and checked on their food, drinks and etc every 15 min . I felt unwanted but other than that food was GREAT
Perfect food and drinks, our server (I can't remember his name but he was wonderful) was awesome and even talked us into having an extra round of drinks because the weather was so nice on the waterfront! 10/10 recommend!
The food is mediocre and the service was OK. Not impressive.
Poor service. And I did not understand the resoning behind not being able to have split checks. Also extra processing fee for using credit card/debit card..unbelievable. I will never come back.
Excellent choice for outdoor seating right on the Potomac river. The food is not a wow but the ambiance is. The food is good enough!
When you eat at a ‘destination restaurant’ where you’re going for the scenery more than the food, you often don’t have high expectations. But I have to say that we were really surprised at how delicious the food was here, probably one of the best burgers I’ve ever had. The salmon was also delicious!
Excellent location, big patio right on the riverfront. RW menu a bit limited and not sure what "dessert of the day" might be, but turned out to be outstanding - nice key lime pie and top notch buttercream chocolate cake.
Beautiful venue overlooking the Potomac. Kayakers and boats. Very pretty.
Excellent service!! Food was not great, just okay.
We had a nice afternoon at the waterfront, enhanced by a wonderful experience at Nicks. Great service, can’t remember servers name, tho!
Nicks Riverside Grill had a nice ambiance but the service was terrible and their policies are crazy. My boyfriend and I came from out of town to have some drinks near the Waterfront but this was not the experience we expected. When we got there they sat us for our reservation and our sever, Cesar, was very rude and made us feel uncomfortable. Do not go to this place if you just want to have drinks. Drinks are $15 and very poorly made. Our server would not allow us to sit and have drinks before we even thought about ordering food. I do not suggest this place unless you want rude servers and poor policy making.
Great meal, delicious vegetables, and very friendly professional service. This is one of our favorite places and we will be back soon!
we had booked a table for 6 outside for Saturday late afternoon, of course had re-confirmed via Open Table as usual more than 24 hours ahead also. When we showed up we were told they no longer take reservations for the weekend. Really??!! I was never notified of the change in policy, we were not seated by the river instead downstairs near the sports bar type area. Horrible. Couldn't wait to get out. Our server was nice, drinks ok but by that time noone wanted to stick around for anything other than just one glass of wine or beer. Will not return.
The food was absolutely delicious and the patio area was gorgeous. However, our server did not introduce herself at all so we didn’t even get her name and there wasn’t a lot of interaction going on.
GREAT!! Venue in GREAT!! Location with GREAT!! Food and service. We are regulars. Recommend the pork chop!!
Good place on the Waterfront:)
Very nice evening at Nick's. Food was great, staff was exceptional, great location. Staff was extremely accommodating when the weather was not accommodating and we moved inside.
The place was very nice in the waterfront. We had a great time, we ordered the crab cake dinners and the crab cake was absolutely delicious the greens beans were on point potatoes were ok. Overall Good experience!
It was hot and our waiter kept us cool! I enjoyed the food and how quick the service was. Really wish I remembered our waiters name but he made us out of towners feel welcomed!
Excellent fish and chips. Seating well spaced and comfortable.
Went here to celebrate an anniversary, but that was never acknowledged. Service was average, but server seemed to have a large section. Area was nice next to the water but was expecting something a little different based on the pictures. The wings were perfect and entrees were decent. This spot is appropriate for everyday dining!
Enjoyed the experience, felt safe and the staff was attentive
A nice place to eat with good food, but less variety than other places on the waterfront.
We wanted a scenic background, so thought we'd try Nick's on a beautiful Sunday evening. We didn't exactly get a water view, but we were outside. We ordered the mussels as an appetizer, they were good. I had the pork chop. It was really good, but the sides were lacking. My bf had the fish tacos. He really enjoyed them. We had a few drinks and they were really watered-down. Service was lacking. We had to go inside to ask the whereabouts of our waiter. Overall decent place on the Potomac for people watching and ok food.
We were Celebrating Fathers Day. Our waiter was great. Made our celebrating perfect since it was the first time to go out to dinner during the COVID-19. The staff took every precaution to make it an enjoyable experience.
The ambiance was great as we sat outside near the water. We enjoyed our food as we people watched and saw the boats come up and dock nearby. This was especially enjoyable as we have not been out in quite some time due to the corona-virus.
Food delicious, server very good. Front desk staff and seating process chaotic.
Only complaint is that people who weren’t dining accidentally walked through the dining area.
A beautiful place on the Georgetown waterfront. Great location with excellent vistas all around. The food was delicious except for one of the main courses we ordered which was a little too salty. The service was fast and our waiter knowledgeable and very polite.
We made a reservation, confirmed it, then got there and it was closed. Very disappointing.
