    Arrived for reservation at 7pm set weeks in advance and table “reserved” was a bar high top table. Not what we expected as I am 7 months pregnant and this was a dinner for our anniversary. We ended up having to wait outside for 10-15 mins for a real table. Kinda negated the point of a reservation. The gentleman who seated/helped us was very nice though. Meal and ambiance was nice and normal for what we expect as regulars of the restaurant but it was extremely hot in there for some reason, much warmer than normal/comfortable and both us and the table next to us were commenting on it! Service was a bit slower than normal but that could also be because we were uncomfortable and wanted to hurry to get some air outside.

    We love Nicks! We are never disappointed with our service or food! Everything is delicious and every person who helped us - from the front desk to any food service was so helpful and kind. It is a very noisy restaurant which can make it hard to hear. But overall, a great experience had every time!

    We much prefer the outdoor seating and was fortunate to get the last one with reservations at 11:45 AM. A ninety minute time frame was texted to us upon seating. Service that day a bit slow so we finished our meal just within that time. Uncertain how they would have handled our delay/tardiness.

    It was Father’s Day so we did have a reservation and we had to wait over 20 minutes for our table. Service was slow. It was very busy and restaurant appeared to be understaffed. It was also our anniversary and it wasn’t addressed by waiter even though note on table said so. Also, my husband wasn’t wished a Happy Father’s Day (also on the note). We probably won’t go back to Nick’s for a special occasion.

    Always one of our best! Went for late lunch/early dinner to celebrate my sons birthday. started with a cocktail, and deviled eggs. Then shared the blue cheese wedge chopped. Could not resist the roast beef sandwich, we CRAVE it. Thanks to the waiters mouth watering description of the green beans, we tried them as our side. They tasted as good as they sounded. finished off with butter cake. Perfect meal for our celebration.

    We Celebrated my 57th birthday and everything we ordered was absolutely delicious. We ordered the shrimp tacos for appetizers; maple meatloaf; sea bass; salmon and the mahi mahi sandwich. Every dish had a wonderful presentation and the 7 layer lemon cake was exquisite. Our waiter was extremely attentive and his recommendations enhanced our experience.

    Exceedingly loud - deafening due a table of 4 young adults. Management did what they could - but it was a displeasure. The Prime Rib Dip made everything better as did, Manager Henry & Server Tiffannie - excellent recommendations on wine, cordials and appetizers. This little place packs a culinary punch

    Unfortunately I don’t remember what my server’s name was but he and the entire staff was absolutely fantastic! Came in with my husband and parents for my birthday. Basically the whole staff came to tall me happy birthday, the manager, hosts, it was so sweet. Our server was really great about describing things and answering questions and was very quick and attentive. Even other staff members casually walking by asking if we needed more chips or water. Honestly, great staff as a whole. Then Our server gave me a birthday card signed by the staff. So so sweet. I feel so bad I wish I remembered his name
