This place is good, but no better than Bob's or Al Biernat's which offer similar food at much lower prices. I have been here various times for work dinners, but would never choose this as my go to steakhouse when dining on personal occasions. This place is all about the show - from the meat platter they bring out, to... More

Nick & Sam's is grossly overpriced for what it is. There is nothing notable about the food, and the place is noisy as hell and rushed. The serving staff is friendly but mechanical. They want to sell and sell, and they are quick to strike the plates to move you through the meal and send you packing. There is not... More

I have read reviews suggesting the the waiters are like used-car sales people. Maybe he was but he did a great job. We were celebrating a friend's birthday and had a great experience. My wife and I shared a steak that was cooked perfectly to order. The sides are large but good. We order the duck fat hash browns. Others... More

The waiters here are like used car salesmen, the keep trying to Upsell you or better deal. The food is good but not any better than other steak houses that don't treat guests like a sucker on an expense account. Never ever again.

The chateaubriand was the best steak I have ever had in my life. We also got a seafood platter for an appetizer, which was fantastic. One of the best restaurants I have ever been to.

My wife and I along with our friends dined at Nick and Sam's for the first time the other day. It was delightful. Service was great, Food was delicious. Atmosphere was fun. This is not an inexpensive discount place, but it is what you pay for. The wine selection was above average and servers knew their stuff.

Cool crowd, amazing drinks and food. The only thing was that our reservation was for 9:30 and we didn't get seated till close to 10:45. They gave us free champagne instead.
