The lunch was delicious and I’m glad we shared! The catfish po boy was plenty for two folks and it was delicious. Outside dining overlooking the Gulf completed the package.

We went for lunch with my family. Order some appetizers and main dishes and everything was really good. Good service and prices are reasonable. I would strongly recommend this place.

I feel that the food at Nicks is nothing special, but definitely not bad. They usually have good deals for happy hour which makes it very affordable. Plus having a porch looking over the beach makes for a great view.

This is a great restaurant for eating and watching the waves come in from the Gulf. Our granddaughter was totally enthralled with watching the action by the seawall. The food is good and the wait staff friendly. Our party enjoyed gumbo, hamburgers, and salads. Everyone...More
