Great seafood chowder, burgers, etc. You can spend lots if time just reading the walls! Great service and great food. A must visit when in Bloomington!

We had lunch here on the recommendation of an IU grad. We weren't expecting great food, just great ambiance, but were pleasantly surprised to find our burgers were excellent! Char broiled to perfection and one of their specialties.

OK there are places in your life where you just can't give it a bad rating because of the past you've had with the old joint. This is it for me. Luckily after 30 some odd years Nick's still doesn't disappoint. I went to school at IU in the late 70's early 80's. This place is crimson and cream through... More

Keep in mind that this is a college rathskeller. The walls are a history lesson to all things Indiana University. All the food is very good. There are pizza places everywhere but the best pizza in the country is at Nick's English Hut. Chantel was my waitress and was was outstanding. This is a must stop when in Bloomington.

I went here after the Michigan St. vs. Indiana game in December. There was a little bit of a wait but I didn't mind. The pizza was good and I would recommend the Sink the Biz fries. I'll be back.

It's been more than a year since I gave Nicks a shout out about the killer fish tacos. Still the best tacos to ever enter my mouth but this review is all about the service. Great service, always! When my wife and I walk in, take a booth and the waitress reels off what we ordered the last time we... More

Haven't been back to IU in many years, but we had to stop by Nick's for a drink for old time's sake. The place still has a fun atmosphere and the staff was just as fun and fantastic. We had some great drinks and enjoyed hanging out there for awhile. Great memories and still a great place!

This is a great place to catch a game when you don't mind it to be loud and celebratory. The fries are delicious and so is their pizza. You haven't done justice to your visit to Nick's if you don't play Sink the Biz.

We had a large party in for pizza and the restaurant was very accommodating. Excellent service, delicious food. The spicy fries are just what the doctor ordered! Nice local brews on tap. Good pizza with nice crust. Enjoy this local stop while on campus.

The atmosphere of Nick's was very unique and fun, and the food and service was great. They don't have a very large selection of food, pretty much just bar fare, but what they served was great. My friend and I both ordered chicken tenders and fries...for $10 each. I think that's a little on the pricey side for such a... More
