Description: Nick first opened its doors in March 2007 with owners, Nick Samiotis and his daughter, Eviania Davey, who are no strangers to the restaurant industry. Nick has been a restauranteur for over 35 years, owning and operating multiple restaurants throughout the Northern Virginia region. Eviania grew up in the family restaurants, understanding the business from the bottom up. In July of 2012, Nick and Eviania decided that the Brambleton area, in which Nick's Corner Grill is located, needed something differnet. They decided to close the restaurant for three week, in order to start theses changes. With a completely new cuisine, decor and atmosphere, Nick and Eviania created and re-opened a restaurant that was authentic to Nick's homeland of Greece. Since re-opening, Nick and Eviania couldn't be more happier with the tremendous support and feedback and would like everyone to feel as though their "home" is the customer's home as well.

“Pricey beers and mediocre food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

We used to meet there once a week, because it was convenient. Some of our group would order dinner, and all would order appetizers and beer. They started a policy of only honoring happy hours prices if you actually sat at the bar. That and food that appeared to be cooked in the microwave at high prices drove us away.

“favorite go-to place for great bar, food, and wifi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

My husband and I like to come here when we're in the mood for drinks and casual, reasonably priced food. They also have wifi, and the bartender is awesome. Friendly, chatty without being annoying, makes great drinks that aren't even on the menu... The food was also a nice surprise (I was expecting the standard crappy bar food but the Mediterranean slant is so much better!)

“Now Greek, Now Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Have been to Nick's at least ten times since they became a Greek restaurant. This is without a doubt the best food in the area. Huge portions and FREE HUMMUS! Cant say enough about it. The service is excellent, the menu is well written and descriptive and the food is tremendous.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012 via mobile

Great restaurant in Brambleton town center! It is a go to for my husband and I. The staff is really nice. Service is a bit slow but it is ok because the food is really good! They have Greek and Lebanese cuisine. I get the hummus every time and sojouk. Definitely a place we will keep going back to.

“Now a Greek restaurant...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

I tried Nick's when is first opened and wanted to give it a second chance. I was surprised to see that it is now a Greek restaurant. I went for an early lunch on a Friday. It was very quiet. The menu looked interesting. There was a good vegetarian selection for my friend which was nice. My lunch was okay. She really enjoyed hers. I'll have to give it another chance.
