Wonderfully cozy, Intimate date nite place.

We came here after we overheard conversations about this place. To my surprise they have cozy, dimly lit booths great for an intimate dining experience. We chose the Caesar for two and it was prepared at our table, and they even made the dressing from scratch as we watched. Our dinner was great... read more

I was leery of going to this restaurant after reading comments rating Nicky's from 1-5 stars. We decided to go for dinner but would get up and leave if the restaurant did not appeal to us. The restaurant and bathroom were clean but showed some wear and tear. Our seat cushions were taped from wear. The tables were set with... More

I have loved Nicki's over the years. What I like most is the fact that they are one of the few places to do tableside preparation. They do a tableside Ceasar salad that is a good reason for going there. They do tableside desserts and entrees. Last night I had crab stuffed shrimp, my mother has the liver and my... More

In an era where chain restaurants are pretty much your only option it's so resfreshing to know that a single fine dining establishment like Nicky's exists. Nicky's has become a Thanksgiving tradition for my father and I and we look forward to it every year. Nicky's is also an excellent choice any other day of the year. Tim and Brenda... More

This is your kind of place if you enjoy a quiet, friendly atmosphere. I was made to feel right at home and met many new people that I now call friends.

Just an awful experience. We walked in and were seated right away, because there was only one table occupied. Server appeared quickly. Gave her our order, she repeated it and still got it wrong. We couldn't decide if the bread was lightly toasted or stale. Chicken salad was horrible. Tastless, hard chuncks of something?? mixed in with a lot of... More

Someone please call Restaurant Impossible and give the owner, Tim some much needed help. On the past Saturday night at 7:00, the place was empty, except for our party that, unfortunately, had heard decent comments about the place. Maybe when Nicki was alive and running the joint it was good...maybe 20-30 years ago. Today, not so much. Decor: dated and... More
