My wife and I recently went to Nikola's for a fund raiser Dinner and overall it was very good - Being a fundraiser dinner tables were a little difficult to get but under the circumstances it was acceptable. We ordered the COD dinner / Ribs and Side Salads - Overall the food was pretty good. However, like any other restaurant... More

The food is wonderful. Portions are more than generous; most customers carry out a doggy bag for lunch. Service is friendly, efficient, courteous with a smile. The chefs cook to order. Free open parking is a plus. Complementary Jazz on Thursday evenings makes for the best bang for your bucks!

Wide ranging menu but BBQ seems to be the staple. The serving size left enough for another meal. I had the ribs and they were very tasty. Despite a huge Saturday night crowd the service was all that could be expected. I will definitely return!

I went to Nikola's Restaurant in Southfield for the first time a few weeks ago. The drinks were a decent price and the food was excellent. I got the broasted chicken breasts with Macaroni and Cheese. When the meal came, I was shocked that there were 2 HUGE chicken breasts and a big bowl of Macaroni and Cheese. As well... More

We visited at lunch time. They were kind of busy, but we still received fantastic service. Our server successfully managed to be attentive without being intrusive. That's not always easy to do. They have a very nice menu; lots of options with something for everyone. I had the spinach salad with Greek dressing and it truly was one of the... More

This was recomme ded by our hotel. Excellent! More food than you could possibly eat. We had the ribs & chicken. 12-bone delicous pork ribs with 2 pieces of chicken. We chose side salad and hashbrowns. Comes with a very large piece of garlic bread. You definitely get your money's worth. Service was also very good. Definitely recommend.

I concur with the other reviewers. The portions were huge and the prices was perfect. We had a party of 8. All ordered something different from the catfish to the BBQ combos to the fried jumbo chicken wings and everyone was satisfied. Most of the sides tasted fantastic, especially the greens. Me and my husband will definitely be back.

This was such an excellent restaurant specializing in BBQ. They had a lot of specialty drinks in the menu and the one I got with peach puree, ice cream and amaretto was awesome! The portions are huge and the price was very reasonable.

Can't beat these ribs! They are NOT par-cooked like most other rib restaurants. From beginning to your plate they are cooked over a rotisserie. Luv 'em
