“Seafood-tastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

A little gem hidden amongst the chaos of the Bayshore ferry terminal...you would never know you could have the perfect post-beach meal...we had the homemade seafood bisque and clams areganata...oh baby! Offer a variety of fresh seafood dishes...bar food entrees too. Friendly, casual, authentic....DELICIOUS...A+!

“Good seafood, large portions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Quaint restaurant near ferry dock. Atmosphere is nautical but limited seating and parking. Take out is always busy and bar is always full. Many waiting for next ferry. I find food is good but most of all I enjoy large portions. Sea food is fresh and desserts are excellent. Is slightly overpriced. All in all good stop for lunch or dinner.

“A Place to Wait for Ferry”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

What more could one ask for while waiting for the ferry to Fire Island - Good seafood specialties and full bar. Prefer a "quickie", try the fried flounder sandwich and a Stella.

“Overpriced....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

Best thing about Nicky's is the view....without a doubt. If price isn't an issue, this is a nice spot to eat, have a drink and watch the boats come and go....great people watching, too. They do not offer a lunch menu, so lunch portions are huge. The food is good; service is excellent. It's just overpriced....even for Long Island standards.
