We extended our Valentine's Day celebration and went to Nick's Bistro the day after Valentine's Day. A nice ambiance for such an evening or any evening for that matter. A wooden floor with a beautifully lit bar and a fire burning in the fireplace with...the ceiling showing old rustic wooden beams.
Our appetizers were mouth-watering good. I loved loved loved their French Onion soup. Served hot and perfect! Also, our string fries with string onions with gravy and cheese on top was amazing. (It's a really big serving, so be aware of that before ordering it).
For our Entre: I had the Tenderloin tips with fries (the fries are battered and so good) and the Tenderloin was tasty and tender as they should be. The dinner came with a salad too.
My wife wasn't too hungry after that big appetizer so she just had the chicken fingers. The Mango salsa wasn't to our own taste, but otherwise, the chicken fingers were very good.
Our daughter had the chicken marsala. I sampled it and it was so tender and so delicious. I couldn't believe how tasty it was. Her dinner also came with a salad.
I don't know how we made room for dessert but somehow we made room. You know...that special compartment reserved just for dessert? I had the orange cheesecake. It was marvelous, as was our daughter's creme brulee.
Ryan our server was perfect in his service. He is detailed in every matter, including noticing that I had gotten rid of my fork and needed another one for my dessert without me having to say a word. He also kept our water glasses filled.
Nick the owner stopped by our table twice and it was a pure pleasure in meeting him. He shared his philosophy in restaurant service: "There is no replacement for quality, and the customer is king." He gets chills each time he shares it because it reminds him of when he first learned these two principles when he first started out in the business many years ago.
We are new to the area and will be looking forward to coming back. It was such a positive experience and I am thrilled to share this here.More
Stopped on the way back around 1ish from Ephrata to York on a warm llate fall Friday afternoon. Somewhat surprising, other than an obvious business table of four, Nicks was deserted. Service was quick, the server friendly and informative, and our orders of craft beers...and reuben and putine (Putine!, here in PA dutch country?) was served in a timely manner befitting the afternoon, not too quick but not too slow. Clearly the server had picked up that we were here to enjoy a leisurely afternoon. The reuben passed muster (without any mustard) for my Long Islander wife. And as a visitor to Montreal, was curious to see a Greek's in PA dutch country take on this classic French Quebec dish. For those not familiar with poutine, if you have a heart or cholesterol problem, it’s not for you - french fries, smothered in gravy and chunks of partially melted cheese. Charge up the AED! Personal likes/dislikes/preferences play a large part in evaluating any food, and poutine is no exception. Nick’s rendition is good. I’d put it at four stars. But rather than smothered in gravy, I prefer swimming in gravy. We enjoyed a very pleasant quiet Friday afternoon at Nicks. Next time in Marietta, will definitely make it a point to stop and enjoy again. Total , two craft beers, reuben, poutine, and tip $45.More
Made the mistake of eating a little later than our usual. We got there at about 7pm. Sign said seat yourself so we did. There was a DJ announcer there and it was loud. We sat for 10 minutes and no one came to the...table. Got up and went to the bar for 5 minutes and didnt see a bartender. There were 2 frazzled looking waitresses running around on the one side but that's it. We went elsewhere. Guess you need to be a local to get service in this place. I really wanted to eat here too.More
I dropped in to Nickies Bistro today for a few drafts and lunch. Pat was working the house solo, and doing a great job. I decided to bypass my usual order of 6 wings(great) and opt for a first time order of his pizza grinder....I bit into the tastiest grinder I ever had. Thanks,Nick.More
Its amazing the small town of Marietta has so many GOOD rest's. We just found another one. We done the House Tour recently. Stopped here for lunch. Glad we did. Had great burgers, super fries. Great atmosphere. Our service was very good also. Will return,...with friends, other items we want to try!!! Recommend....More
I really wanted to like this place. The food was pretty good. I'd say it was a little expensive for what it was. There were quite a few beers listed, but it was frustrating because they were out of everything. I think they finally had...my 4th or 5th beer choice. The place was a ghost town. I met the owner. He was a very likable guy and seemed to appreciate our business. I did mention to him that I was in charge of a group of 20-30 that gets together about once every 1-2 months for dinner. I inquired about making a reservation and bringing a lot of local people to his restaurant. I was disappointed when he told me that will fill up his dining room and we could work something out on a Monday or Tuesday. A lot of the working couples don't want to go out for dinner and a bunch of drinks on a Tuesday. If they are going to spend $100 for dinner with their wife, it will be on a Friday or Saturday. I thanked him and walked through his empty restaurant shaking my head. I hope I was there on an off night. I'd like him to be successful.More
Sensed something good in the air when we entered the roomy raftered bar and bistro on historic W Market St. Greeted by the ebullient and convivial owner we perched on high backed chairs and enjoyed the generous pour of expertly built martinis and manhattans. and...the yummy crab imperial stuffed mushrooms.
Mains included a mango lacquered salmon with crisp frites, a veritable tureen of ably seasoned jambalaya with tender chunks of chicken, chorizo and shrimp, and an enormous Caesar salad accompanied by a wafer of fricco (crusty Parmesan disc), to name only a few standouts. Friendly efficient service, a jolly proprietor and lots of happy laughter in a comfy setting make for a tasty and enjoyable evening.More
