My family always grabs subs and fries for lunch at Nicks. Good prices. Three size subs. 8" 12" and 18". Nicks has been serving Dewey Beach for as long as I can remember. Also Dairy Queen is in the same parking lot so you can grab dessert while your food is being prepared at Nicks.

This restaurant is informal, has quality meat for their cheese steaks and wonderful, chewy Italian rolls. They come with a large selection of toppings, and the largest size is enough for 2 people. The fries are also good.

The owners are the best in Dewey Beach, Delaware. The father-son-daughter-in-law trio is one that cannot be touched by any other establishment at this beach destination. Nick is the nicest and friendliest person you will ever meet at a restaurant at this beach location. He goes out of his way to make every customer welcomed and accepted. Nick is authentic,... More

This steak is solid. I handed a cashier 10, and he starts to count out all kind of change. I remind him it's a 10 ( at 1:30am) and he thanks me and gives me a free drink. Get home and it is a solid steak + drink and the evening improves (around 2am).

Can't beat their steak and cheese and gyros. Friendly family service that was quick as well. Just make sure you leave room because the portions are generous. A 16 inch cheesesteak for $16 it just a little too much for me though...still great food.

Cheese steak, poppers, and Marinaded Chicken subs were good. Service and price were good. I would eat here again. They are open until 2am!! Good late night stop!

We got some Cheesesteaks and a sub to go from Nicks. The food was pretty good, but I think some of the other reviews oversell it a bit. We definitely enjoyed what we got and the cheesesteaks were steak, not steak-ums, but I would put it at very good not the OMG level. Still very convenient to the beach and... More

the philly cheesesteak is okay, probably the best food they have there. as for the service, very stingy especially with the quarter-sized napkins!!!!

Delicious cheese steaks. We parked in the lot facing all the fun happening and ate our sandwiches tailgate style. Great spot for people watching and yummy sandwiches.
