Nicks is such a wonder place to experience. The food is amazing especially all appetizers and the fried chicken and sliced rib eye. Melts in your mouth! Also you MUST get the butter cake with berries. DELICIOUS!

Food quality and service were excellent! A bit noisy on the street-side, but pleasant experience overall. Will come back next time I’m in for business.

We try to make reservations for every Saturday we are in town. We are foodies who moved to Belmont Shore from LA and Nicks is our favorite restaurant in Long Beach.

Among my favorite restaurants. The food is delicious, the service and ambiance great. The prime rib dip sandwich is wonderful, along with whatever else I’ve tried. Treat yourself!

The reservation was made many days earlier. However, rather than seating in the main dining area, our table was located in a plastic enclosed table out on a congested street

Noise level makes it difficult to talk. Wall sound absorbing baffles might help.

For appetizers I highly recommend the fried deviled eggs. Based in the recommendation of our awesome waiter... I order the petite salad with Salmon. The portion was perfect. The salad with filled goodness. The meal was full of flavor. You could taste every ingredient. The service was excellent. The waiter made our night!

Went here to celebrate a birthday. Cool, rainy evening and we were seated on the patio even tho we had a reservation, and because there is limited indoor seating.. Heaters helped, but the wind was blowing in around the edges of the tarps and plastic.
Service was very nice and attentive.
Shrimp taquitos were a unique and yummy appetizer . Salmon entree was cooked perfectly, and the bistro plate with clam chowder, petite filet mignon, and salad was absolutely delicious.
The birthday celebrator received a birthday card and a small box of chocolates. Nice touch!!

Very good salads. Large enough for a meal. Love the add-ons which makes the salads more filling. I had the ahi appetizer which was excellent and I highly recommend. Great atmosphere and really good service. Highly recommend!

My husband and I decided to have Valentine’s Day lunch to avoid the dinner rush. My reservation was confirmed and we were sat early. Have you every avoided your favorite restaurants for fear the food will be horrible on major holidays? Well I can say with certainty, the food and service is always amazing, even on Valentine’s Day. The attention to detail was not comprised due to the holiday. We had the shrimp taquitos, ribeye melt, and their famous prime rib sandwich. I am grateful that our day was indeed special and especially delicious.

Nick’s is my favorite restaurant and I made my reservation a week in advance for my birthday just so I could guarantee getting in. Had a lot of food leftover and asked for my butter cake to go. Got home and the butter cake was not in the bag! I was so disappointed

Nick's has the best food in LB, everything on the menu is tasty & I should know I've tasted it all! I recommend it all the time. Nick's is the place where I go with my out-of-town company, my BFF's for celebrations or just let's get together & catch-up times, my husband when we want to eat out, & once a month with my book club.
If you haven't gone yet, make it the next restaurant on your list, you won't regret it!
