The restaurant has a buffet and the buffet has all kinds of home cooked food and the food is always very good. You go through the line and pick out what you want like meat and three. The waitress seats you and serves you tea or whatever you need.

GREAT vegetables cooked with quite a bit of spice and seasoning... meats are average but not average PRICE, 2 go plates ( meat and 3) used to run $20 but now is closer to $25, they automatically charge 15% extra for take-out and the plates/boxes they use are rarely ever enough to contain the food without making a mess by...

The food = YUM! It has an old school cafeteria feel. Tons of choices of entrees and sides, but you better have some idea of what you want before its your turn to order. Once the servers break eye contact, there is no going back. I had their meatloaf which was delish with a tomatoey sauce, Mac and cheese and... More

You won't leave hungry. Had turkey with all the trimmings at a reasonable price. Desserts are also good should have split a dessert. We were stuffed when we left. Food was very good as well as the service. Can't go wrong here.

The food here is good. You get a large variety of southern favorites...chicken, shrimp, fish, pork chops, roast beef. The veggies are well done with complimentary cornbread and rolls. The only negative is the servers rush you through the line!! You have to actually stop and demand a moment to view the choices. I have been going there for years... More

Every time we are in the area the first place we go out to dinner is at Nicki's. This trip we choose liver and onions, tilapia, fried chicken, and lemon pepper fish. Sides included mashed potato, Mac snd cheese, cream corn, rutabaga, and squash. We enjoy the generous portions and perfectly seasoned foods. Cafeteria set up but you can also... More
