A good friend told us about Nicky's so we stopped in the other day and he was right on. Very clean, great atomsphere and good selection of beer to pick from. Very friendly and helpful staff, food was very good and reasonable. No extra charge to split part of a meal and we will be back. We were impressed when... More

Visited Nicky's on Friday while our kids were at a football game. The atmosphere is fun and inviting. The food was outstanding as was our service with the only exception being the less than friendly host. Our waitress was great. The perch was very good and among the best we've had in the area. We'll be back.

We had heard from a good friend of ours named Lance (he is well known there on a first name base) that this is a cool place to go. It was the Packers players place to go in the 60's and has the awesome wood interior to back that up. If you come in on the restarant entrance don't leave......venture... More

Visited on a Monday night when they weren't busy. Loved the historic atmosphere. Good service as expected. Spicy gumbo was delicious. Big muffaletta was very tasty. Convenient to the college. A notch above normal good pub food. Really enjoyed our time there.

Dinner here with a dear friend at the end of September to celebrate her birthday was the choice of both of us. I have always enjoyed the cozy atmosphere of Nicky's with its warm wooden interior, and massive wooden bar. This tavern reminds me of many of the historical pubs that my spouse and I visited for lunches and dinners... More

This is your typical fun, bar-restaurant. It has a friendly feel and a nice pub type menu at reasonable prices. Perch is good. Appetizers good. Nice atmosphere for a party with friends. Loud, not romantic

Awesome atmosphere, food and service. The fried fish was light and tasty. Tried Johnny's special crab cake and ordered an entree. Lots of great locals there with everyone visiting and enjoying the evening. Can't imagine a better place to go in Packerland.

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!
