Visited Nicky's for dinner while traveling around Lake Michigan and were impressed by the hospitality. The food was good, the Margarita well balanced (and huge!!!) but what really impressed us was the warm welcome and the great tips we were offered for our onward travels. Super nice place!

Awesome pub food!! Best I had in a very long time. Gumbo was the best I had. Also, had the 11 oz burger done perfectly, juicy and flavorful served on a potato roll.
