Such a cute space. Food was so delicious but I think our order got lost. They were apologetic and brought a delicious brussel sprout app to the table. Sooo good. Will definitely go back but will ask to not sit right next to the music act. He was great but it was a bit hard to have a conversation

There were five of us, and all of our meals were very good. Our waitress was very nice and checked in with us quite a bit, to make sure everything was going well. Other staff who filled water, etc. were also very nice. The one complaint that I had was that I ordered the fried green tomato sandwich, which I love, but it seemed to be smaller than ones I have had it in the past. There just was not as much ingredients on it. This was at dinner time; and, even though I had a side of soup (which was good as always), I was still a little hungry. When I have had it in the past, I felt like it was enough to eat. Other than that, everyone seemed satisfied with their choices. It is a great neighborhood restaurant.

I have been to Nicksons Eatery a number of times. I love the fact that they have a smoker in house and also that they have a wide variety on the menu. The service is always been terrific, with very friendly wait staff, and even visit from the owner. It’s a great place for a family or a business dinner. Big fan.

The ambience in this place is quite nice, but it can get loud. We ordered the mushroom flatbread and the fish tacos. Both were excellent; the mushroom flatbread with truffle oil was particularly noteworthy.

The plank Salmon dish is outstanding! I returned there to have that dish especially, but would like to try other dishes.
The waitress was extremely helpful with the wine selection and suggestions, bringing me a tasting before deciding on which one to order. Waitress was extremely pleasant, making us feel welcome and catering to our every need. I will definitely return and bring more friends there as well, knowing they will enjoy it too.

We were very pleased with food, service and efficiency at Nicksons in La Grange. This place is an ideal business lunch location. Our group had a reservation at a round top table and the noise level was very comfortable compared to others spots for business lunches. Nicksons' menu takes the salad/soup/sandwich format to a much higher level than you might experience elsewhere, plus nice selection of wines, beers to accompany. We will be returning here again.

Nickson’s is an excellent choice if you are looking for great service, excellent drinks and a menu that has something for everyone!
It sits in the heart of downtown LaGrange, which feels like a small-town in a movie! Whether you are on a date, meeting friends, dining with family, or even on your own, the staff makes you feel like family and the food is delicious! Try the Sticky Buns! You’ll be glad you did!!

For some reason, everything seemed very very salty -- the Brussels sprouts, sweet potato fries, chips that came with fish tacos. Spent a lot of money, didn't enjoy the meal much.
