The night started off fine. The bad attitude of tabatha ruined the night. She was extremely rude when I didn't like the fried mess they put in front of me. She then went to retrieve, "Grandaddy". Grandaddy then shrugged his shoulders and told us, "there is nothing I can do, our waitress did nothing wrong in my opinion." Then noticing... More

This was the first seafood restaurant we tried in town. It was very good. Two of us had the fried bacon scrimp - I would just order regular shrimp next time. Oysters were average (but out of season). Mahi Mahi was grilled very nice. The food must have been good because my mom keeps talking about the shrimp that fell... More

Nick's has never pretended to be fancy. It does fried seafood very, very well. Their shrimp is always, always good. Large groups & kids are welcome and don't dress up.

Looking for some local seafood on our vacation and came to Nick's because of the close proximity. $85 dollars later we were left puzzled by the lack of quality and freshness we received. All shrimp, scallops and stuff crab were clearly frozen and the fish was nothing but mush. I'm so upset that my family and I wasted one of... More

Great food good view. Good service. The restaurant however needs a serious updating of decor is all. Great place for kids gave my little girl the perfect sand dollar as a souvenir.

my husband ordered the fried shrimp and oyster platter - it was good. I ordered the crab claws but thought about the fish of the day -grouper (the waiter was nice enough to bring me a small portion of it also-probably wishes he hadn't now.) The crab claws were so fishy they tasted almost spoiled and the fried grouper had... More

Read other reviews and selected on that basis. Varied experience for family members. Grilled shrimp meal was adequate; however catch of day came barely warm and very small portions. Chicken fingers simply okay. Salads very basic; mostly lettuce. Service not very good.

We went on a Thursday for dinner around 7:30 and only waited 10-15 minutes for a table. Super friendly service (ask for Russell), good portions and great food! We like to sample different things, so our family orders different meals and then shares them. I tried the gumbo, which looked ok, but tasted great. Fried onion rings, grilled shrimp, grilled...

We had a nice time at Nick's and the food was very good, once again. It has been marginal for the past couple of times we were there but I think this place has turned it around once again. I talked with the owner and apparently he had heart surgery and was out of the fray for 6 months, which... More

Terrible service & the food we did receive was cold. Waitress discounted our check, but when we asked for the rest of our meal she seemed surprised. Seriously!?!?!
