The service and ambiance were perfect. Everybody was kind and eager to please. 3 out of 4 of us loved our meals and the kale and chard side was so delicious that my boys wanted another so we ordered two.. yummy! My husbands chicken was a bit dry and overall so so but other than that everything was perfect and we will be back. Thank you!

The seating outside was perfect. Plenty of people yet not crowded and plenty warm on quite a cold night. The service here is friendly and unrushed, which makes it a great place for those being extra careful in this environment yet wanting to reconnect with people a little at a time. Highly recommend for a light bite or big meal.

Nice experience in a COVID environment. The filet isn't the greatest cut but good. The dinning room is a little bright. Service was excellent.

Great food and good vibes! Only comment was that there is a giant tv that is next to a few of the tables outside that can be rather distracting at times.

We had a great time on our last visit to Nick & G's! Our waitress (Olivia?) was fantastic, the food was delicious, and the live music set the mood for our evening. Can't wait to be back after the stay at home order is lifted.

It’s really a shame because restaurants are struggling right now but this is one place we will not come back to. The waiter kept forgetting to bring us things from our order and when the food did come, it was average at best and unpalatable at worst. I had to send my dish back because it was literally a jar of butter that you had to fish the crab out of. Very disappointing. It was nice to sit outside and it was lively, just wish the food was better.
