While the food is good, I'm totally here for the sweet cheddar cornbread biscuits! They are SO GOOD, especially with the honey butter. It's good, "hearty" food, seasoned well with a good variety of side choices. I do feel it is priced a little high though.

We stopped here on our way to our vacation on Hilton Head Island for some take out BBQ. Got there a little before 4:00 on a Thursday afternoon and found the place nearly empty. You could smell the BBQ smoke in the air which sat the stages of my expectation to a higher level and signifying that this is the... More

Jim N' Nick's BBQ has some of the best food! We try to go here every year. Their pulled pork is out of this world! You can dine in, eat out side, or even go through the drive-thru and get your meal to go. The prices are good and the food is excellent. Our waiter was very attentive to us... More

I had to blow my diet with a Jim N Nick's rib fix. The ribs were delicious! Try the potato salad. The wait staff was wonderful. I bought sauce, muffin mix, and rub. This should be your go-to place when you get ready for comfort food!!

Small portions, very small. I was shocked when plate came to table, know what the price on the menu read.

This is the first time been unsatisfied with Jim and Nicks and its not because of the taste - it was delicious. Whoever took my order didnt really care to help me. So when we got our carryout I was surprised because Ive eaten here many times over the years and the portions are usually on the large size. We... More

Ribs are dry rubbed and hickory smoked. Collard Greens very well steamed with ham and bacon. Fresh cut French Fries. Very good selection of bourbon, rye, whiskey

Order anything from this menu. You can't go wrong. From the friendly, competent service to the superb quality of the food, expertly prepared, to the desserts prepared in-house (this is one of the places to go for pies), the establishment's excellent standing in the community as one of its leaders, make this a regular stop. We have. A Bluffton treasure.
