Good food

I've only been here once but the food and service were good. I think they are a bit overpriced on their food and drinks but the quality and quantity make up for it. They also have take out and catering. The locals really like this place and the BBQ is good. Worth checking out.

We come to Jim and Nicks at least twice a month. I've never had their tacos though. I tried the pork street taco today and I was very pleased. Also recommend upgrading sides and going for the onion rings. This place never disapoints. The wings are what keeps us coming back for more .

Although this is a chain, the bbq is always high quality and you can smell the smoke down the street. Brisket is fall apart tender, the cheese biscuits are killer. I have never had a bad meal here. Servers are friendly and helpful.

I really wouldn't expect to find good BBQ anywhere near Hilton Head, South Carolina. Nothing against the place, but that's just not what they're known for. Jim n' Nicks while being a chain, has never disappointed me with the quality and quantity of smoky goodness. You really can't go wrong with anything on the menu and the service has always... More

Great place for family and fun. Plus the food keeps me entertained most of time anyway. We order out often for family dinner at home. Its like Sunday dinner on Fridays. It's a treat for my good behavior.

Went there with my boyfriend for a light dinner we always look forward to the cheesy biscuits and we always request the honey butter to go with them. Our server was good unfortunately we forgot his name but he was knowledgeable and friendly. Food was good but the biscuits are really what we go there for. Only complaint is the... More

My husband and I took his parents out for lunch today to celebrate their 69th wedding anniversary. Of all the wonderful restaurants in this area, Jim'N Nick's was where the folks wanted to go, and we were not disappointed. We all loved the mini cheddar cheese muffins to start. The boys always have spare ribs and the girls, baby back... More

We tried both the Classic and Carolina pulled pork barbecue and decided we really liked the Classic much better, but that is just a matter of taste. The little corn muffins were a nice addition.
