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

I'm always guaranteed to be greeted with a smile, and great service. My meal is always tasty, especially their famous crab sandwich. Jim is the most entertaining waiter I have ever had. I can't count how many banquets I have had or attended at Nicks. Service is always tops.

Visited this spot for lunch on a rare sunny fall day. The tide was high and waves were actually breaking on rocks splashing water on cars parked facing the Ocean. This gives you an idea about how close this place is to the shore. We arrived at 1:30, which should be slower than normal lunch crowd on a week day... More

Nick's is directly on the ocean in Rockaway Beach. Their menu selections and prices are average while the service is excellent. We were seated immediately even thought the restaurant was nearly at capacity, our order was taken, and food delivered promptly. Tables were bused very fast. Interior is dated but fitting and clean.

The night we ate here there was a band playing in the bar. The problem for us was the band was so loud we couldn't even talk at our table with out shouting. The food was good, not great. Service was good.
