A Tradition like none other..

A BTown classic. Great place to catch up with family and friends. Reasonably priced and good bar food. You go to Nick's because it's Nicks.

Cozy atmosphere, good food with IU history galore. Had lunch with the Director, Actor and Writer of WALTER, all IU Grads of the Drama School. The Director was my son, Brenden Patrick.

This was the first place we dined on our initial visit to Bloomington. This is a Bloomington tradition and a fun college place. The food is above average bar food and you just have to like it because it's Nicks.

After a Hoosiers basketball game, I took both a fan's advice and a friend's recommendation and made a stop here. Parking can be quite tricky (downtown Bloomington has metered parking on the majority of its streets; student-only and permit parking all around can further complicate matters). Once I found a spot I entered Nicks and was greeted warmly at the... More

I have been to Nick's many times. Sometimes for socializing with friends, sometimes for dinner, but always a good time. It has typical bar food. The atmosphere and history is the draw to this place.

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.

We only stopped here for a drink before a basketball game, but the food smelled amazing! We loved the atmosphere and will for sure go back when we are in the area! Highly recommend stopping here!!
