Great food and atmosphere

I had always assumed that Nicky's was a noisy college bar. I couldn't have been more wrong. The interior is gorgeous. All beautiful wood, tall ceilings..a european pub atmosphere. Plus the Christmas decorations were stunning. My husband does know the owners, so they were very friendly. But I noted that they chatted with most folks. We were at Nicky's on... More

First time here and cannot wait to return the next time we are in town for a Packers game! The owner makes you feel at home. He made our first visit so great we returned for a second trip on our final night in town just for a drink and to thank him for his hospitality the first night we... More

I've only lived near Nicky's since before they opened many years ago, but have avoided it because I thought it was a "college bar" being as close as it is to St Norbert's. Tonight my wife and I tried and learned that it is not just college kids. It was more family oriented. I tried some of the Friday night... More

My wife and I went to Nicky's as a part of "Restaurant Week" in Green Bay. We hadn't been there, so we wanted to try a new place. The menu was pretty extensive, a lot of different choices. Service and the quality of food was good. Place was crowded and very busy, but the owner took time to visit with... More

Smelled to bad to stay and eat. I had High hopes. Asked for a menu since it was restaurant week and the menu was dirty. First impressions go a long way. I have heard good things about this place but it did not work out for us.

The people couldn't be nicer. Drinks and food are very good. Problems was, I went with my sister who has asthma. Mold kicks her asthma in full force. The place made her sick. The building is very old and has a strong smell of mold. I have been back since and mold is all I smell!

My sister and I along with friends come here every Friday, but quite early (5pm-6pm) because after that it gets pretty crowded. Strongly advise on booking a table if you are coming during the nights of Friday and the weekend. The owner will most likely come to your table, welcome you and make you feel at home. Service is good... More

I visit Nicky's quite a bit when I'm in town. This pub has great food, exquisite service and hospitality extraordinaire. Their hometown hospitality is a cut above. In addition to salads and healthy stuff, you can travel the world over and never find a better burger. It puts new meaning into the word fun--always good times. Patrick Wood
