“Great service and staff but food nothing out of this world”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

If I could give Nickels 3.5 out of 5 I would. 3 is a little unfair but 4 is too much. The atmosphere and service were great. But as far as Montreal breakfast/brunch goes it was just normal/average/ordinary. But Montreal food is excellent so you will not be disappointed if you are a tourist and stumble across Nickels.

“Straight up average diner style restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

Had an average lunch here when I walked down St Caherine street. Busy (location) crowded with less than average service. I would have to want a cup of coffee in a bad sort of wat to think I would be back.
Nothing special here...

“Mediocre food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

2 adults 2 older children
Kids burger (bun toasted burnt) fries orange pop
Natchos . They would not offer a half size portion or it in a kids meal as it was for a child even though they did not want any of the toppings but cheese. Nachos came out barely any cheese and burnt in areas. A lot for $12
I ordered chicken wings, i have never seen such small wings they looked like budgie wings. When i complained the waiter said you should of seen them before they were even smaller. No blue cheese dressing given for them claiming its Montreal.
Before ordering the Ceasar salad i asked if it was homemade and he assured it was. There was NO taste! He claimed others thought there was too much garlic and must be my taste buds. I was then offered a package of Rene's greek dressing to put over my salad,
My friend ordered a quarter chicken dinner was was edible.

Bathrooms were very dirty and dark in the hallway.
Will not return. We went here for family dining good portions homemade hearty meal and was very disappointed.

“With A Little Bit Of Effort This Could Be A Better Resataurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

We went to this restaurant of Monday October 21st with two of our friends who were visiting from Victoria BC. One of them was originally from Montreal so he knows how good our restaurants can be. This restaurant needs to be spruced up. We have often eaten in other restaurants in the chain, notably the one in Ste-Adele and we like the ambience. The food and service here wasn't bad but something was missing. Considering its location, I feel that with a little effort, this establishment could be upgraded several notches and I am sure that business will benefit.
