Great local seafood!

We had a family birthday party at Nick's with 15+ people in attendance. The staff was able to seat us in area so we were able to all sit together. The waitress was exceptional at meeting all the requests of the group. The requests continued for the 2 hours that we were there and the service was... read more

The restaurant was dead at lunch time, there was only one server doing everything, the server was clueless about what beers the bar had, and the food was just OK. We got grouper sandwiches, a cheeseburger, and onion rings (these were really delicious).

We cannot pass this place without ordering their onion rings and fried fish/shrimp. Simply the best there is in this area. Hattie has the secret to fried food. A second note, today we ordered cheeseburgers with onion rings. Unbelievable......two huge patties, enough for two sandwiches. We love this place and it is our "go to" for food.

Nicks is nothing fancy and not your typical high brow 30a venue. However, it is a family run business and serves up fried seafood very well. Hushpuppies are great, fried oysters tasty, and a friendly down home atmosphere. Sometimes it is quite busy especially when the musician is there! He really added to the evening and our group throughly enjoyed... More

This place seems to get lost in the shuffle of the more "popular" and "talked about" places in the area. We went in for dinner and it seems like more of a family type place than a tourist trap. The fried shrimp, fish and oysters were done much better than most places. Lightly breaded and not overly cooked to a... More

Incredible fish and shrimp, BEST tartar and hushpups. Service is fast, courteous and family friendly. Both locations if Nicks rock!

We made reservations for 5:30 for our party of 11 and were seated immediately upon arrival. They had fried pickles as a special appetizer and we also had the onion rings. The appetizers were all great and the portions were large. For our entrees, we had fried shrimp, snow crab legs and shrimp wrapped in bacon. Do not let the... More

The appetizers were very good. We had the gator bites and onion rings. Fried perfectly. The dinners were good as well - fried shrimp, grilled fish and shrimp, steamed crab legs and shrimp. Not much selection in wine, but there is a full bar. felt a little rushed by the staff.

Nick's won't make you feel out of place like some of the other local restaurants. A no frills establishment with good food and excellent service. The owner and staff will make you feel at home. Fried oysters were very good with excellent breading. Grilled fish also very good. Coconut cake a must try.
