Nick's has a good beer menu and complementary peanuts in the shell. Their Italian beef is good, and I like their fried shrimp. Their pizza is good for Chicago style (I prefer New York style). Lively atmosphere. Great bartenders and waitstaff.

We enjoy going to Nick's for a fun time and good food. The atmosphere is casual and they have baskets of peanuts that are fresh, fun and different than other restaurants. We often go when our daughter and family are in town on a visit, as she loves the pizza! There are games the grandkids like playing at and a... More

The food is very good and the staff is always friendly and helpful. Try the moose wings they are very good. Sat at the bar and always have a good time watching sports and talking to the bartender.

Nicks pizza is awesome! Great ambiance, great service, great food, affordable prices. Excellent beer choices. We go there every 6 weeks or so with family from 3 different Illinois counties; Kane, Kendall, and Lake. This place is very accommodating for larger parties. We are usually in the range of 8-14 people. Spectacular every time we go.

We have always loved the pizza, atmosphere and friendly service at the two Nick's locations and the two related Village Pizza locations. This year Village Pizza has opted out of serving peanuts, and we have opted out of frequenting the Village Pizza on Randall Road. Although Nick's Pizza is a few miles further to drive, they now have all of... More

The atmosphere is outstanding with giant fireplace and barn surroundings. Peanut shells are OK on the floor with lots to eat before the meal. Kids love it. Adults love it.

Just okay. Struggled to give it 2 stars. Service was below average. Food was fair. Way over priced. Very ordinary.
