I don't understand why this place is not crazy busy like the other places nearby. We have been coming here for years and the shrimp is always really good! In fact the places with waits down the road was not near as good. Not as trendy but good fried seafood! Come here for sure!!

Good food, attentive service and a great price. The server was very helpful in walking us through the menu, explaining items we were not familiar with. If you want haute cuisine, look elsewhere. But, for cheap, fresh, local and fried, this place is equal to any seafood restaurant I've encountered.

There was a bridge out on the road to the restaurant at which we had planned to eat. In order to go to that particular restaurant, we would have had to have back-tracked, taken another road, and then gotten back on a main highway, and, then on the section of the road we were on originally. By that time, we... More

At least once each week, every week of the year we are here. There is nothing better when it comes to fried seafood. You can always find a fault...."waitress was not good, potatoes were a little cold.....blah, blah , blah" . Get a life, we have been going to Nick's for as long as it has been open, and there...

Great local place. Took a bit to get there from Shalimar, but well worth the drive. Everyone ordered something different so we could share. Best things on the menu are the fried shrimp, the onion rings and the hushpuppies!

Hostess and waitress were both friendly, but our waitress seemed like she wasn't entirely sure what she was doing. She also spent a lot of time visiting with friends at another table. My grilled mahi was very good and a very large portion, but the baked potato that came with it seemed old; a yellowish/brown color. I was there for... 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 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 very good the... More

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.
