I'm a picky eater, if great I say so, if it's mediocre I'll call it. Nicks is a decent place but I don't care for doughy pancakes...it could have been an off day and I'll try them again when I'm back in Ann Arbor.

Must stop for breakfast Sunday morning after game day before heading home. First cup of coffee was a bit watery, but it was replaced when requested & replacement was much better. Food is great, very large portions. Be prepared for a bit of a wait to be seated Sunday mornings. We had ~10 minutes to get a table, but worth... More

A great spot for breakfast. Excellent selection. Pecan banana pancakes, cherry and walnut pancakes and waffles were favorites. Parking on site. Will recommend to friends.

We go here every weekend during our visit to Michigan for the UM games and love it!! Super large portions! Open from 7am to 3pm every day and prices are very good.

Plain eggs or stuffed French Toast. Skillets or omelets. This little place has it all! And did I mention, great coffee? I LOVE breakfast and my son doesn't. Not a problem here, lunch is always available. My last skilet was out of this world.... just can't help it. ... love this place!

This is our go to breakfast place the morning after game day. Never disappoints, arrive before 10am or expect to be waiting 15-20 minutes for a table. Food is always good, specials are creative, & without a doubt we will be back again.

4.25 stars, actually. It is expensive. However, portions are huge and the service is top notch. The place is clean, it is quiet, and the food is fine. My eggs Florentine was rather good and the coffee acceptable. Breakfast or brunch will run about $15 per person with tax and tip, so not the spot for folks on a tight... More

We visited Nick's on game day. We got there around 10am (game at noon) and there was only a short wait to get a table. It was so fun to see everyone wearing their game day gear! The restaurant is fairly large, with tables and booths. Service was quick and friendly. The breakfast menu is pretty large and features some... More

Good pancakes but too pricey to bring a family ! Pancakes and coffee over $11.00 ! Service prompt and good. Will visit again.
