We'd just arrived in Bluffton, and were ready for some barbecue. We prefer more rundown barbecue joints. This one was quite snazzy. The barbecue was too tampered with for our tastes. It seemed to have pepper added versus mainly having the smokey flavor. The sauces and sides were good. We sat outside. The music was Motown and just right for... More

I went there with my daughter and her family this past Tuesday night because it was my daughters favorite restaurant when she use to live here. What a nightmare!!! We were seated in the bar area in a back booth with 3 small children. There were drunks at the bar right next to us hollering and being loud. We had... More

Although a crowd can form for lunch, we got there just before noon and the place is larger than it looks from outside. We had great service and great food. All the staff are so friendly. Service is quick, unusual for the area. They have the best onion rings and great southern sides. The fried cat fish is spectacular as... More

My husband and I ate here for the first time over the weekend. It was by far one of the best places we have been to in Bluffton. Everything from the food, to the service and atmosphere was top notch. This will definitely be a regular place for us now!

This is the real deal with melt in your mouth pulled chicken and unique sauce selection that includes one that is exquisitely hot but not over the top. Baked beans were superior. Best southern Barbeque I have had in quite some time and I am from Virginia.

Jim and Nicks pulls you in right away from the smell of the smoker, service is great, food is a good value but sometimes too salty for my taste.

We stopped in for some southern food while we were visiting our family in Bluffton. We absolutely loved Jim n Nicks! From the yummy cheesy biscuits to our BBQ pulled pork, everything was just great! Our server Jackie (spelling?) was so friendly and sweet! Definitely request her if you come into Jim N Nicks!

We had worked hard and wanted a simple dinner. I had their BBQ wings from the appetizer section and found them to be terrible. I ate about 2 and quit there. The neighbor kid who is 10 asked me where we went and asked what we had eaten. I told him what I had and he said, those are terrible.... More

Stopped here on the way to HH, after a long day in Charleston. BBQ was excellent, the Morgan County white sauce was a first for me and definitely a must try. My 14 year old picky eater even raved about the chicken. Onion rings were excellent. Wait staff was friendly and very attentive. Will be returning next year!

I have visited this location several times and my favorite time to go is on Taco Tuesday. You get two tacos of your choosing and a side for less than $9. The tacos are a good size and you will not leave hungry. I've tried them all and the BBQ pulled chicken with Alabama white sauce is my favorite. I'll... More
