Nick's offers good, reasonably priced casual dining at a prime location on the Georgetown waterfront. We had drinks (Caribbean coffee and red sangria) and muffulettas that weren't as good as true N'awlins muffulettas, but were good sandwiches in their own right.

Don't go here. The food is lousy, and even if you want Ceasar Salad or a tough steak, why pay this price for the location? Go to one of the other restaurants in the same area, or, better, go to Unum on M street. I suppose a beer here wouldn't be bad, what can they do to spoil a beer?

I can overlook a lot if the hostess is friendly. Pretty basic stuff to greet your guests with a smile. We had to ask for a table as 3 staff members had their backs to the door. We should have left when I noticed the plate with our silverware on it had melted cheese on it from the previous user.... More

On the waterfront overlooking the Potomac, this restaurant combines a casual sports-bar like ambiance with great attentive service and yummy food. The crab cake was meaty and perfectly complemented by sweet coleslaw and savoury crunchy vegetables. The staff were friendly and really helpful, refilling my drink before I'd noticed it needed it and making helpful suggestions regarding the menu. And... More

Had lunch here, but outdoor dining was limited due to urgent work to prevent potential flooding as a hurricane was nearby. Location is nice, plenty of outdoor space overlooking the river. Food was limited due to the above restrictions. Staff were good, coping with diners and the needs to get ready for a storm. Would be well worth a visit... More
