A Bloomington Indiana Tradition

If you are in the Bloomington Indiana area for any reason, you should stop in at Nicks! No matter if you are getting drinks or a bite to eat, it's a great place for a visit. Average food. Good Prices. Great Service

If you want the Quintessential B-Town experience that generations of students have enjoyed then Nick's cannot be missed. Is the food the best - no but it is good - and is now as home as my mothers cooking. Beer selection is average - but it is a fantastic place to drink - and no Btown experience is complete without...

I visited Nick’s with my son and two of his buddies prior to a Hoosiers basketball game two weeks ago. It was busy and the service was very slow. To an extent, that was expected. On the other hand, it was painfully slow. The waitress eventually took our drink order. I had three 8-year olds with me. I asked her... More

We had a great dining experience at Nicks...our server was super professional and responsive (not sure his name but he had poptart tattoo on his arm). The wings were excellent.....great sauce and cooked with a nice bit of char. My son got the steak sandwich which was also great. Will visit again.

I went for lunch at Nick's with a friend. He was so amazed I have lived in town for 23 years and never been inside that I was positively embarrassed. My loss it turns out. Besides being a cozy bar, they do decent pub grub. It is not way fancy or widely varied or striving for gourmet, it is just... More

Average bar food but you don't go to nicks for the food. It is a great college sports bar with great ambiance.

Went here as opposing fans on a football gamely and enjoyed our stop. The highlight was the Biz Fries we ordered as an appetizer. The main course was Sausage Stromboli and Grilled chicken sandwich. Both were not that great, but did the job. The place was tightly packed and filled with people. Decor was awesome, service was very good. Bigger... More
