Coronado Island is full of great places, Coronado Brewing company was full so we accidentally went to Nicky Rottens, which was smart move. The food was great, service was terrific, and atmosphere fun.

Good food in very big portions, well cooked and very prompt. The staff are busy and yet still attentive. We dined during Comic Con when the Coronado eateries are flat out and they still managed a smile and maintained quality. This is an open area restaurant so the acoustics are a bit hard when someone has a crying child, or... More

Our reservation was at 7:00, our table was not ready but no worries it was a Friday night on a holiday weekend. Once we were seated our waiter promptly took our order and we didn't see him for over an hour at which time he said "sorry we dropped your food" it will be just a little longer. We waited... More

We went for dinner on a Saturday night, very busy but we were seated immediately. Good and attentive service despite the crowds. Burgers were great as were the cocktails.

Nicky Rottens is a good place to go if you are looking for a open concept loud bar/restaurant. I was looking for a great hamburger but, they don't have fantastic hamburgers - but, the food is good enough. It seems like it is a great night life spot.

Nice atmosphere. We had lunch there while on vacation. My daughter ordered the TJ Tacos and loved those. My son had a burger, which he said was good. However, I ordered the chicken quesadilla. I asked for no sour cream, no jalapeños. It arrived with both sour cream AND jalapeños. I told the server who handed my plate back to... More

We had lunch at Nicky Rottens today. 3 of us had burgers and all were very good. Our 7yo had chicken nuggets and fries which he said was good. This is a lively place and has a good beer selection.

Typical sports bar. Appetizers were good, served with a nice variety of dipping sauces. I had a chili burger which filled me up, but was nothing out of the ordinary. There were 10 of us in the group and the service was a little slow.

Randomly stopped for lunch. Had the fish tacos. Light tasting and delicious!! Husband had hamburger and was very satisfied. I had the pineapple mojito. Mint used was very bitter. Once I took it out of drink it was better. Wish I was more of a beer drinker so I could take advantage of happy hour ;-). Food was SO worth... More

I've now been to this location twice and have shared burgers each to so all four choices have been amazing and I will definitely go back again, the view across the bay to the San Diego skyline is a real treat along with the inside outdoor eating area to enjoy the city.
