Dropping off our daughter at Indiana University brought us to Bloomington and we needed a place for our last dinner before she headed off to her orientation. Nick's English Hut was a perfect place for its IU traditions and location on Kirkwood. The food and drink was pretty good (you dont go to Nick's just for the food). The hamburgers... More

Nick's is such a happy, nostalgic spot. I love drinking from a Nick's IU mug and to see everyone having a great time. I wouldn't take a date here.. it's a fun place to go with your friends.

I will start by saying that I realize this place is a college hangout BUT we were still turned off by our experience. We came into Nicks just having left eating dinner at a nearby restaurant/brewery. Our mission was to drink a few beers and have an app to eat since our dinner was so little to eat. We walked... More

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!
