Good Food, Friendly Service

We were with a big group and had great ,friendly service. Everyone enjoyed their meals and most had boxes to take home. The warm, cheesy biscuits are delicious and were refilled without being asked.

We love Jim 'n' Nicks for a casual lunch. We often go there with friends. The wait staff is great. We usually stay for some time and visit....only when the place is not packed or has a line of people waiting to be seated. We never are rushed. The staff knows us. We have enjoyed many items on the menu... More

My husband and I hadn't been to Jim 'n Nicks for some time and we were over due. The restaurant was pretty empty and quiet since it was between lunch and dinner and we were seated right away. Our server came right over for our drink order and we requested an order of onion rings. Our mini corn muffins then... More

We landed up here because our favorite barbecue restaurant in Bluffton was closed on Sundays. The menu sounded great but the portions and taste were very average. The side dishes were good but the portions were small.The best thing was the cornbread and cheese muffins. The atmosphere is good and you would expect more from seeing this place.

Seated us on the empty patio. Had our two small dogs with, under 15 lbs each. After looking at the menu were told no dogs on the patio. Would appreciate better service to let us know promptly if that is now their policy before being seated. Have dined with dog in tow after a day on the island before.

Pleasantly surprised! I will try any BBQ place with a decent rating on TripAdvisor and this place is the real deal. I really enjoyed the brisket and they had sauces to please any taste buds. I'll be back for sure.
