First time eating at Nick's in Long Beach and I must say the food was delicious. The Buttermilk Fried chicken with mashed potatoes and that yummy corn was to die for. Their Jalapeño Watermelon Margarita 👍👍. I'm definitely going back.

Our experience was great... they seated us quickly. Our service was excellent and the food was great. Interestingly we were a party of 4, and we all got the same thing... so I can't speak to the whole menu, but the crispy chicken sandwich was great :) The only thing I will say is that it was loud and sometimes hard to hear our servers (through a mask and faceshield)... but that's not their fault!! Overall, I would totally recommend.

The food is always Great & our server was Awesome. Being restricted to outdoor dining makes “ambiance” scores a bit ridiculous but we had a Wonderful meal.

All dining is outside, which makes for less ambience but also less noise. The fried chicken dinners are excellent--the best fried chicken I've had since my aunt's when I was a child! My son's sandwich looked good too.

Outdoor dining isn't too makeshift
Service was great and they listened to the requests I had when I made my reservation. The food is fantastic and while it is pricy, it's not undeserved. Definitely the perfect place for a special occasion.

Meal was wonderful as always. Sheila took such great care of us and as always made us feeling like we were at a friends house. The drinks were great too with Kelly working her magic behind the bar ... cannot wait to get back into dining at the bar but for now we will take outside dinning over nothing at all! :o)

Thanks to the entire Nick’s team for the wonderful experience today!!

Cool when outside, but service was great and we enjoyed being able to get together with friends to have a meal together. Only 1.5 hours at each table so be prepared to order and then enjoy. Food was excellent.
