Manager Zack Kramme is sensational! He is bar-none the most impressive manager we’ve ever encountered during our many travels! He is the definition of the word “hustle”. When he’s not personally visiting every table and visiting with patrons, he is filling water glasses, checking on...the kitchen and bar, consulting on the phone and bringing orders to tables. He simply never stops. He made our entire anniversary special by his personal attention amidst a busy Wednesday dinner crowd. Any owner would be beyond fortunate to have Zack as an employee.More

The food is great and they don't skimp on quantity or quality. The best thing about our experience here however, was the over the top service from every sector of the restaurant. This place does not skimp on food or people serving its patrons. You...can tell that they spend money to get the highest level of impeccable service. All around from our waiter to bus people, to water fillers, you name it.....The place was busy but with their outstanding service, it didn't matter.More

People at the hotel said this place had 2 for 1 steak on Tuesday but get there early. So we did, and its a nice restaurant, not quite 2 for 1 but really nice filet, tasty side dishes, wonderful desert and a decent wine list....Great service when you would think with all the tourists it would not be. By the time we left there were empty tables, so we didn't have to get there so early. I would go back if I lived there.More

I came to Nic’s to celebrate my birthday on May 26, 2021, and wow, was I in for a surprise! The food was amazing and the service impeccable!! Zach the manager was quick to ensure we were pleased with our food and service. Sarah, our...server, was top-notch, friendly, and had a great personality. The biggest pleasant surprise was Megan who sang happy birthday to me! Dang!! She sung like she was singing a tune from Broadway!!! She made my overall experience one of my all-time favorite EVER!!! I cannot wait to go back! You must eat here and the prices are so reasonable for the quality and amount of food you get which is hard to find these days. You must make Nic’s a must in your travels to Arizona!More

We waited about a half hour for a seat for dinner. Fortunately we could sit at the bar. The drinks were great. When we were seated, we had the special, 2 filet mignons for 36.00. They came with salad and sides and were perfectly cooked....The place was packed, and no reservations. The menu was quite extensive, and based on what we had and the crowd, I am sure everything is great.More

This is a classy live atmosphere. I have been twice now, and it is one of the highlights of Cottonwood. Service has been spectacular on both visits as has been the food. Come early or make a reservation. You wont be disappointed!

When there is a line outside the door waiting for this place to open you know it's good! Celebrated our anniversary and my husband's birthday there. Food was great, and the service was outstanding. Peggy Jean was our waitress and even though we all piled...through the doors at the same time, she was right there for anything we needed. They had other people checking on tables and bringing additional yummy bread so they keep on top of the crowd. Best thing for us is they do not rush you!More

This is an attractive restaurant with an up scale feel. The menu was extensive. Spaghetti with meat sauce was a good size serving and plenty of meat. My lasagna was delicious. All the pasta is a homemade sauce used in the lasagna is the same...for spaghetti. Lots of meat. I personally would’ve enjoyed cheese melted on top of my Lasagna. But I would recommend the restaurant.More

Tuesday is the day to visit Nic's. Two filet mignon dinners for $36. Expertly prepared. Good portion size. Clam chowder any coastal restaurant would envy. Crisp salads. Risotto so flavorful and creamy one could make a meal of it. Excellent red wine. This excellent offer...draws a big crowd. Go stand in line by 5 to have a chance to get in at opening (5) or plan to wait an hour and a half for an open table. Eventually, we will try other items on Nic"s menu. We will try them some other night. Eventually. But the bargain and excellence of Tuesday filet draws us back every trip into Cottonwood.More

It was packed with peeps), service was great considering the crowd, and the food was reasonably priced, for fine dining. Great wine list, and very...friendly staff. We will definitely go again for one of the dinner specials. We greatly enjoyed it.More
