My husband and I love seafood and because of all the hype we decided to go there for dinner. My husband ordered fish and chips. He wanted Mahi or red snapper but it was not available so he ordered fish and chips. SeIection of fish was very limited. I ordered the 3 different types of poke with a side order... More

We ordered the crab cake salad, ahi tuna sashimi, swordfish, and mahi mahi. It was all good but nothing to write home about. I would go there again just because it was nice to sit on the patio at the pier, but it wouldn't be my first choice. The service was really great though; very nice, attentive and social!

Went for happy hour at 4pm. Wait service starts at 5, but at the earlier hour in addition to the happy hour food menu, you can get food from the takeout window or go into the market. Any of these is a wonderful and very affordable food option to enjoy at indoor or outdoor seating. The fishing boats come in... More

For lunch you can go in their store, order crazy good poke and eat it in their pleasant open air seating for under $10!! I ended up eating here three times in one week because the poke is so, so good.

Try the poke, three different ways. Great appetizer. Fantastic seafood dishes. Located on an industrial pier.

Nico's was the finest fish meal we had while in Oahu. Great appetizers, fine fish entree's, really interesting entree's and delight ful service. Get there a little before dinner hour, and relax with a cocktail before the specials menu is complete. And as you dine watch the hordes of people begin to arrive, and smile to yourself in congratulation when... More

Had a layover and took a cab to pier 38. No traffic, it cost $20 (tip included) one way, so roundtrip, we're talking $40! If you're dining in a group, I'd say it's worth going out. Otherwise, the cab ride was more expensive than my meal! No traffic at the time I went and it was around 7pm. Ordered the... More

We heard about Nico's from the concierge at the Marriott in Ko Olina. He told us it was a "must do," for local fish in Honolulu, and he was absolutely right! My wife had the fish sandwich which was Guy's love from Diner's Drive in's and Dive's, and I had the Ahi Tuna. We were both impressed. We could see... More

We were told about Nico's by the Hertz Rental girl in the morning. So we decided we had a local's recommendation and we would check it out. Restaurant had a nice selection of seafood and land food. (my husband is not a seafood lover). We went with the Ano ribs - recommended by girl at Hertz. They were very good.... More
