The good: The ribs were outstanding as was the classic pulled pork. Great stuff. My daughter loved her mack and cheese, but then again, the cheap variety would be fine with her since she is only three... The bad: My son wanted a cheese burger but it came without cheese. My wife ordered her 1/4 chicken off the bone. She... More

Jim N Nicks is an outstanding barbecue restaurant that offers a great ambience. This is one of our favorite places to go to grab a delicious bite in a wonderful setting!

Real BBQ is cooked slowly in a smoker. Ribs take 12 hours and no sauce is used during cooking. At Jim 'N Nicks ribs are cooked in a stove, covered with sauce then are put on the grill for a few minutes to add the markings like they had been grilled for hours. The pulled pork has no BBQ flavor... More

A lot of the local eateries close at 5, so we tried Jim and nicks since it was open later. The chicken and pork barbeque was wonderful. My collard beans were some of the best I've had but they are spicy. Onion rings were good but you don't get many. We took banana pudding with us. It was good but... More

We have been here about 3 or 4 times and everytime it is delish!!!!! We've eaten the Barbque pork chopped, pulled and anyway they offer it. The chicken fingers are to die for and the macaroni and cheese is the best. Can't say enough about it. Service is always great also.

I must say, above and beyond the food, the entire staff is amazing here! When you walk in, they make you feel right at home. Hodge, Corey...everyone. The staff makes the dining experience! I enjoy the food as well, just wish they hadn't gone to wine on draft, that really takes down the experience. I realize you can bring your... More

Greeted and shown to a booth upon arrival. Wide variety of items to choose from the menu and not all,were bbq related. My entree was plentiful enough for a to-go box. Excellent service and friendly, helpful staff.

This is our grandkids favorite place for cheese biscuits and pulled pork. Good value, large portions. A must stop on each visit to the island. Friendly staff, excellent service.

Although the cost is a little high, the food is excellent. This is some of the best BBQ I have had in years.

We loved the cheese biscuits and the pulled pork. The catfish tacos were also good and the coleslaw some of the best I have had. The desserts were also homemade-we had both the chocolate and the coconut pie and they were excellent. The food was all very fresh, and the service quite professional as well. We will return to this... More
