45 minute wait, so we choose to do dinner in the bar area. Appetizer menu is good. Clam chowder and crab sandwich are excellent. Pricey cheeseburger was average, but a big portion. Good choices on desert menu. Server was nice and attentive.

This place was a trip --- back to the 60s... The food was good and service fair, as were their prices. The view of the Pacific ocean beautiful. the decor & ambience was just too funny; my Husband & i truly felt like we werew in a time warp back to a 1965 night club.

On a recent get away my wife and I enjoyed a few stops there, and the food was always good and the service friendly. Our last dinner we ate there I gave the roasted chicken a try. It was some of the best if not the best I had ever had. The young man that took care of us was... More

We had crab rolls for dinner at Nick's. They were very good and I would also recommend the calamari and shrimp. Lovely seafood dinner at a great price.

Nick's is popular and often crowded. Based on my wife's and my dinner one time, and my daughter's dinner another time, the food is mediocre.

We have been coming to Pacifica and eating at Nick's for several years. I always get the Prime Rib dinner and share it with my wife. The cut of beef is so large, I am amazed that someone could eat it by themselves. The restaurant was very busy the night we visited. I would recommend calling ahead for reservations. There... More

Overpriced and poor service. Our waitress acted like we were bothering her when my son asked for a refill and we practically had to tackle her to get the check. The food was so so for the price

If you ever crave for an excellent crab sandwich when you are in the Bay Area, try Nick's Restaurant in Pacifica, CA. Yes, you will see a lot of crab in the sandwich, unlike other places. A little pricey but it's worth every bite. :) Pacifica is a 20-minute drive from San Francisco downtown. The waterfront restaurant is a great... More

Great menu at reasonable prices for good quality fresh food. Highly recommend the crab sandwich. Views of the ocean, friendly helpful waiters, table cloths, welcoming for children.

The view was very nice. Would be an excellent place for a date. Not very toddler friendly but we made it work for breakfast.
