The food was fine for families but if you want a fine dining experience this will not trip your trigger. We have been there a couple of times and their wait staff is very good

The server had a tremendous amount of energy. Very attentive. I'd rate the service as excellent. The food was nothing special but good quality. The price was fair. Overall, I'd rate the experience as above average.

The Ribs are outstanding as well as there side dishes. My family and I tried the fried green tomatoes as an appetizer and loved it. Also,... More

Yes, I have read all the great reviews. This is my second experience with this outfit. The first one was catered so I cut them some slack for the dried out BBQ(everything was mediocre at best). This time we dined in. The hostess was very friendly and quick to meet,greet and seat us. Our server was prompt and equally welcoming.... More

Although my husband and I have lived in Bluffton for 5 months now, today was our first visit to Jim 'n Nick's. We always said we should try out their barbecue - but when you've lived in Houston for almost 10 years and had some of the best brisket ever, it's not easy to try someplace on the east coast...

A Bluffton favorite. Frequent this family favorite. The cheese biscuits are awesome. I also enjoy the chopped southern salad with smoked chicken. Always clean and the food is fresh!

For the past ten years I and along with friends and or family have enjoyed consistently great meals. When you combine excellent food with excellent service you have a winner. The amazing difference between Jim 'N Nick's and most other restaurants is the team approach to service and how well they do it. Also, if you like great variety and... More
