Nic's is always good-both food and service. the ribs are fall off the bone tender and the sauce is great, just sweet enough.

We have been here twice while visiting Cottonwood and both visits have been very positive. The food is very good and it's a great value - well priced with large portions. They have very good cocktails and a good beer selection for an Italian restaurant. A good sign for the direction Cottonwood is heading - high quality, local restaurants -... More

We went to Nicks with our 2 year old on a Saturday night. It seemed on the fancier side so I was worried about our kid being in there, but they had booster seats and a kids menu. We had calamari and the mac n cheese app - both were super good. I had a sole special and my husband... More

Our dinner started with a bottle of a really good 2008 Shiraz, followed by the very best calamari that I've had in ages. The kids menu was awesome - no standard chicken fingers, macaroni and cheese, tiny hamburger, if little pizza - it was kids portions of adult meals including spareribs! My granddaughter love it. For dessert the birthday boy... More

We love Nic's and come frequently. We like the variety in the menu, and we have never been disappointed here. The food is great, the drinks are great, and the prices are great. We generally try to come on a "specials" night. Sunday is pasta special with $5 sangrias and half price off the pasta menu. Tuesday is special filet... More

My husband and I visited on a weekend getaway from the Valley and heard good things about Nic's but didn't expect them to have some of the best ribs we had ever eaten. The ribs were very meaty, feel off the bone and delicious sweet sauce. The soup and salad were tasty and the creme brulee was very good, but... More

Ate at Nic's in June. Excellent food and very large portions. It is a little pricey, but it was well worth it. If you are in Cottonwood make this a sure stop, but get there early as it fills up very fast. It is in old town Cottonwood

Let me start by saying that the food, atmosphere, and décor were fine. However, the waiter was rude and sarcastic from the moment we sat down. We felt unwelcome and so we rushed through dinner just to get out of there. The waiter may be there every day, but we aren't, and he ruined our only visit.

Had read great reviews on a number of sights, so when it was also recommended by the desk clerk decided to give it a try. Delightful old-time decor, could have been romantic except for the noise level. One, dining area adjacent to bar, two, no door to the kitchen, so heard every clank of the dishes, etc. May have been... More
