Historic atmosphere, excellent food, good service.

We enjoyed a wonderful meal at "Nick's Third Floor" at D.B. Searles. St Cloud is lucky to have a great variety of wonderful restaurants. Four of us had dinner on a Wednesday evening and all our meals tasted great: DO Burgers, Shepherd's Pie, and Maple Salad. The sweet potato mash as a side was... read more

We were given many options for a dinner-on-your-own for the Tuesday night of our conference. I am very glad that we chose Nick's Third Floor for our meal! It's close proximity to the convention center and our hotel eliminated the need to drive. The walk was very pleasant. Upon entering D.B. Searle's we were warmly welcomed and informed of our... More

My husband and I just moved to the St. Cloud area. We have been in search of the cities best steak. We both ordered a $28 NY Strip with garlic mashed potatoes. It was horrible. The steak was gristly and did not merit the $28 price tag. The garlic mashed potatoes were very odd, as they had carrots and celery... More

Met two other couples for dinner at Nick's on Saturday and absolutely loved the food and fantastic selection of local craft beer. The special was a linguini with a seafood sauce that was outstanding. My wife had the Parmesan Encrusted Walleye and the portion was huge and absolutely delicious. Plus the building is so cool. We will definitely be back!!

One of the oldest and coolest buildings in the area. A land mark and right next to a little theater too so, dinner and a play? The upstairs dining areas are unlike any other place I've ever been.....many levels, small nooks - even one haunted one. Go take a look - it's cool. Don't remember what the food was like...was...

We have dined at Nick's 3rd floor restaurant a few times and been satisfied. Last night we invited friends to join us. They had never been to Nick's and unfortunately it wasn't the best experience we've had. Not sure if they were under staffed but our server was not the most attentive--taking quite a bit of time to bring out... More

We love Nick's 3rd Floor restaurant but it is ruined by the skank pit you need to walk through on the way to and from dinner. How embarrassing to leave a beautiful dinner with our guests only to have "suck my ____!" (Not bleeped out) playing loudly in the bar on the way out. Not to mention the cloud of... More

The food was a bit pricey ... There was not much under $12. (Except maybe a bowl of soup). We split a turkey club - which was tastey with their spicy aioli sauce. A basic burger was $12 but did come with Fries, so that helped. The service was good overall (bartender did drinks and meal service).

Friday lunch was at D.B. Searle's in their banquet area. Pulled pork sandwiches, a great salad, tomato basil soup, and drink was the menu and it was terrific. Then we came back for dinner that evening with the choice of steak, chicken, or ravioli. The salad had vinaigrette dressing. And then there was our "re-birthday" cake. The dinner was for... More
