Typical College Bar

Nick's is a popular college bar and a longstanding IU tradition. If you are bar-hopping in Bloomington you pretty much have to stop here. You can get cheap, crappy beer or try some of the more upscale brews. The food is typical bar food but the service is absolutely horrible.

Nick's English Hut continues to be a Hoosier tradition serving food and drink in a friendly tavern atmosphere. Great place to visit before, during or after the basketball game. Reasonably priced awesome food and drink.

Great atmosphere, nice staff, good bar, and awesome food. The burger was juicy and generous. Nick's famous Submarine (I think that was the name) is huge!! Really really good! Only dissapointment was the italian beef sub.

The waitress was quick and very attentive. The personal pizza was made to order and quite good! My drink was kept refilled and the bill was very reasonable.

Nick's is a great place to go drink with friends and watch a game, but the food is unremarkable. I like the veggie burger well enough, but I would never go here just to eat.

Nick's is the most traditional place in town to catch an IU game. There are well over a dozen TVs to watch sports on 7 days a week. The food there is good with their famous stromboli, great burgers made with local grass-fed beef, tasty pizzas and giant sides of Nick's Fries. They have chicken sandwiches and veggie options as...

Took the grandkids to experience Nick's for the first time the day following a game. Enjoyable meal and atmosphere. I always enjoy looking at the memorabilia that fills the place. Speaking to the owner, I advised I had a piece I could add to the collection.

It was fun to play beer drinking games while watching basketball games and eating lunch. Plenty of tvs around. The burgers were good, not great.
