Family needed a quick Sunday afternoon lunch to go before heading to Savannah. WOW, what a find. Outstanding, Hamburger and fresh cut fries. Tybee history all over the walls, was interesting to read while we waited. Staff was great and made sure we had everything we needed before we left.

My husband and I stole away from the rest of our group for a bit to grab some drinks, and after a kinda crappy experience at a bar across the street (over priced / weak drinks), we decided to give Nickie's a try. Much better drinks and even better prices. We would recommend it to others if they are into... More

Nice clean place. Food was good. Home-style meals or just sandwiches and snacks. Fries are really good, cut fresh. Only drawback was it smelled of cigarettes; not a problem for me..

A big group of us came down for St. Patrick's day we found ourselves in this bar Saturday all day Sunday and again on Monday morning. The staff and owner made us feel right at home. Music was good and loud and we danced all night. The drinks kept flowing! The beach and nikki's are our top attractions!

Went here after the Savannah marathon for burgers and beer and football. It's a bar with food, and all that goes with that. Smoking, cussing, laughing and pool. Not a family place so don't bring Junior, but if you want a good cold beer, a fine burger and probably the best fried pickles I've ever had, come here.

We stopped in here during the off season for a couple of drinks. The bar had recently been renovated and was filled with mostly locals who were very friendly. Rachel was our bartender and she was an absolute doll. The next thing you know, the locals are buying us drinks, toasting us with shots, and it became one of the... More

Please don't throw away your money- buy a frozen pizza at a grocery store - it will be sooooo much better! I was ignored for a while, before i could place an order, i witnessed a server go in the register, take money out and put in her back pocket! Never again!

I must begin by saying I am a frequent visitor to Tybee Island but Nickie's was one of the few places I had not eaten. I always thought about it as just a bar. I was walking down the side walk with a couple of buddies and saw a sign for steaks on the window. I cracked a joke and... More

The Kitchen "closes" at 10:00 or when the last hungry person leaves. The Bar stays open until 300am. Both are reasonable in temper and prices. A nice place to end your night or start one.
