Great place for a date night
Great aperol spritz with my gal pals!
Great place, great service!
One of the best crab cakes I’ve ever had...no filler, lump crabmeat. Lovely place to eat.
Great time! Recommend reservations if you want outside seating! Very beautiful; waiter was able to seat my husband and I away from the crowds.
Our server was wonderful. We had a very nice time.
It's decent and the outdoor patio has a nice view of the river. French fries were especially good, service was very good. My chicken sandwich was good, the other two in the party were a bit less impressed, but the food is fine overall. It was trying to rain when we were there and the server kept coming out to ask if we wanted to go inside.
Service was very poor. Food was just ok definitely not worth what I spent. The only positive experience I had was the view.
Reached special milestone...
La comida fue de mala calidad
Our waiter was new and had little to no training; the service was downright awful – extremely slow and incomplete. Food tasted great! Overall, average dining experience – nothing too special except the water view.
We were delighted to find Nick's Riverside Grill on the Georgetown River Front on the day we received our 2nd Covid-19 vaccine. The tables were nicely spaced apart, the wait staff was friendly and efficient, the food was delicious and we overall had a wonderful lunch experience. We definitely look forward to going back to Nick's soon again.
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!
