This restaurant in historic Cottonwood, Arizona was recommended to us by staff at the Verde Valley Railroad. We really liked it. Well prepared dishes at a reasonable price in delightful atmosphere. The eggplant parmesan was the best I had in years. The steaks and sandwiches looked filling. Highly recommended.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Old Town Cottonwood. Sundays are half price for pasta (as of right now)....and I would suggest the lasagna! I have it every Sunday night if I can. Their fresh bread at the beginning of dinner is served with a plate of dipping oil, again, delicious and satisfying. Their cocktails are inventive, and... More

My wife and I decided to try Nic's for out 15th. anniversity dinner. On the plus side, our server Shannon was friendly and attentive. However, my wife's sirloin was ordered medium and came to us just barely medium rare. The fries that came with my beer battered shrimp were greasy, limp and unedible. Overall, a very poor first impression on... More

We were celebrating our anniversary with a quiet weekend in the Cottonwood area and wanted a place to have a nice dinner. We asked several locals and each one recommended Nic's at the top of their list. We were there on a busy weekend in town so were a little concerned about the fact that they didn't take reservations, but... More

Having visited Sedona before, this visit we wanted to explore restaurants further afield, therefore, ventured to Cottonwood to try Nic's For a Thursday evening at 6.15pm we had to add our name to a list and wait for over an hour outside the restaurant (as it was heaving inside) before we were seated. Thankfully, although this was not the best... More

We went for dinner, and the service was outstanding. The atmosphere is warm and cozy, even though it is an extremely busy restaurant. My husband had the little neck clams, which were very good. I ordered the skewer trio. The shrimp and chicken were delicious, but I was very surprised that the steak was very over cooked and very dry.... More
