Rob, our bartender and server, was absolutely phenomenal. He made a night amongst old friends even better. I am not from Washington, but I’ll for sure be back when I do come back and visit.
Very mundane bar food served here. Probably OK for watching a game but for decent food try one of the neighboring restaurants
Our server was excellent, I forgot her name but she was great! Nice atmosphere and food.

Our server Larry was awesome!!
Beautiful views on the Georgetown waterfront. However, staff was generally unresponsive and slow. Food was decent but very overpriced for the quality. Drinks were poorly mixed.
Food was okay. Service was mediocre, at best. Nothing hostile, but I think we had to ask 4 times before they brought us extra napkins.
We went there because the Open Table lists happy hour deals, but the server who sat us was rude when telling us there’s no happy hour. Besides that efer
Bryce was an exceptional server! He made the experience the best for my daughter and nephew. He was very sweet to them and entertained all 101 questions. Now it’s their favorite restaurant.
Had a reservation for outdoor seating. When we got there the outdoor seating area was fully dismantled. The area had sewage and sanitation trucks. Several of them. Waste of my time.
Hostess was very rude, but Server was great and they have good food and ambiance by the Potomac.
Our server was Antonio and he was AMAZEBALLS!!!
And the food was outstanding, exceeded my expectations. Not only would I recommend a friend but this is my new summertime hangout spot.
There were a number of issue with this experience. Experienced a rather lengthy wait after being seated just to get water on such a humid evening. Starters came out with no issue. However when the entree we begin brought out, the server actual went to the wrong table 2x and when they turned to come back to our table the swift turn cause the food to drop to the ground. While apologetic it was definitely a significant wait to get the order back out. Moreover the second entree was ordered at temperature was over cooked and there again a significant wait to get the other corrected and back out causing my party not to be able to enjoy dinner together. Ultimately the food was great just hiccups caused an obvious damper.
More servers needed and the ability to split checks.
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!
