We were looking to try a place we hadn't visited before, so we decided to try Nicks. Food was good but a bit pricy. We went at lunch and there was only one other table occupied when we arrived. Fish of the day was great, but shrimp basket special was lacking quantity. Overall good food and good service but there... More

We were neutral to disappointed in our experience at Nick's. The people were nice enough. The food is all fried. The shrimp were probably the best thing going. Nothing seemed fresh. Prices in my opinion were unreasonably high for what we got. I sure wish we had gone between I think it was 11-4 when shrimp is only 9.95. Portions... More

It was dinner time and we were looking for a seafood place that didn't have a 90-minute wait. We drove east on 30-A and saw Nick's. We pulled in and parked. They were able to seat us right away! Our waitress came to the table right away and took our drink order; since they have Pepsi products, I opted for... More

So -to start off our waitress was so rude when my 21 yr old ddr ordered a margarita - when she looked at my ddr's ID she kept very nastily asking if she was 21, etc. I was shocked at how rude she was. Then, there's the food - the fried shrimp batter was nice and light but with NO... More

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
