We ate at Nicks twice. It is old school good . They had a band at night and there are dancers there that are so good. They must go there every Friday night just to dance. It was like free intertainment. Food was excellent.

Have eaten here quite a few times over the years. Their famous crab sandwich contains less and less all the time. And this is the middle of crab season! I remember the days when you could hardly get it into your mouth. Now am reminded of the commercial "where's the beef." Served with some fries and a pickle. No coleslaw,... More

Nick's was a big surprise for me. I've lived in Pacifica or 5 years and had not been there yet. We ended up taking our friends out for the anniversary. The food was good (everyone enjoyed their dishes) and the restaurant was a bit dated/funky but still comfortable and classy. The view was, of course, awesome since you are right... More

I've always been hearing about Nicks crab sandwich how good it is so wife and I decided to drive to Pacifica and try it. We waited in the bar lounge for our table which took 45 mins which was ok for us since we were in no rush at all plus the view of the ocean was nice and a... More

What can I say about this restaurant, good selection, steaks and seafood, and of course the crab sandwich, which is my favorite. If you need to wait for a table the bar is excellent. There is the bar area that has tables, so you can come in for drink and appetizers if you don't have time for the restaurant. There... More

Nick's seems to have been here a while. I travel alone for work and enjoy a good meal and drink at the bar with sports world n TV if I can. Nicks had all of this. Food was good but the garlic fries were undercooked and could ward off vampires for miles. The staff was friendly but the biggest annoyance... More

Nicks has the best crab sandwich I have ever had, adding Avocado is a must especially if you are visiting CA.

My family and I have had great dinners at Nick's only twice. So, small sample size, yes, but the service staff is so genuinely pleasant and personable that I can't imagine service being anything less than fantastic. My mother uses a walker and the staff just took over to open the path to the far-corner table, we had a party... More
