This restaurant was recommended to our traveling group by the hotel staff where we were staying. The restaurant is located "ON" the beachfront which provides for an absolutely stunning view of the ocean and surrounding rock formations; so much so that we just had to take pictures before going inside to eat! I could tell right away that this was... More

Very nice place to warm up after a cold day at the beach and zoo. Received a warm welcome from the staff. There was a good variety of food. The food was very yummy.

We got the cheese burger. It was huge, perfectly grilled sour dough bread & moist flavorful beef. It's big enough to split... Highly recommended !

Was in the area and stopped for dinner. Nice view from the restaurant of the ocean. The service was prompt and courteous. The server was pleasant and the food was delivered out quite quickly. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone in the SFO area as it is only 8 miles from the airport on the ocean

We always enjoy our visit to Nicks. Old timey cafe with super staff and a spectacular view. Good food, great service and a chance to go where the locals do makes for a good meal and memorable times. Nicks has been there in one form or another since 1928. Next visit I want to try out the bar.

Nick's sits on the edge of an ocean cove just outside Pacifica, CA. While the restaurant is rather dated in appearance, the food is excellent. We had the crab sandwich which we chose to be served with avocado. It came on toasted sourdough bread and was teeming with crab meat and a tomato. Purple onions and lettuce sat optional on... More

This quite big, always crowded restaurant is in a fantastic position just facing the sea and if you are lucky to get a window table and you are there around sunset time you get an added value to the dinner (remember to ask for a window table otherwise you don't get one). We were there on a Saturday night and... More

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
