Nick was a local fisherman who docked his boat right here on Flatbush Avenue in 1955. Within a few years, people would stop to buy fresh lobsters and seafood right from the boat. Through the years the idea has grown into a successful restaurant --still in the family. With pride in the past we focus on the future. Our goal is to provide our guests with excellent service in a fun, casual atmosphere to enjoy the freshest lobsters, seafood and ingredients around. We work with many local suppliers and aim to continuously improve Nick's Lobster House for another 60 Years.

On this past Thursday my wife treated to a Birthday Lunch at our Favorite Seafood Restaurant Nick's. We had a wonderful day to enjoy the Open Deck on the outside of the Main Restaurant building. We are sorry we missed Chef Dimitri and his visit...to our table each time we dine at Nick's. He puts such care and concern into the preparation of the food as well as his special staff. I always wanted to try one of the Special Bar selection and enjoy their Hurricane Nick's. It was so refreshing. We always want to pick our favorite selections but do want to try something new also. We had our favorite doz. of Baked Clams so juicy and full made just right. I like to take the table bread and sob up the juices. We do like their House Salad but we also and as a treat for the lunch we selected their Caesar Salad made just right. So plentiful, we took the rest home. I was in the mood for lobster but not for the whole thing, so I selected the Traditional Lobster Roll and enjoyed it! My Dear Wife likes their Salmon Plate with accompanying vegetables. All the food was so good. Since we didn't want to ruin our meal, we opted out of dessert at this time. But we always do enjoy a great hot cup and one of their desserts. We have been coming to Nick's for approx. 5 years and look forward to each time we go. We have NEVER been disappointed with our meals and sometimes even take some thing extra home or stop to take out for an even meal. Please give Nick's a try and you will not be disappointed with your meal and their menu. Your know the place and food is great when the staff and their service reflects the Chef's compassion.More

Amazing service Two years (2018) ago I celebrated my birthday there. It was great, food was delicious, waiters were kind and polite and atmosphere was so friendly. Really loved this place. This time (2020) I ordered food delivery, I called them to place an order...and they were very punctual with the delivery. They informed and confirmed every step of the process. It was as expected , wonderful, the plates were pretty big, food was amazing, I and my friends got full not even finishing. Very satisfied 👏More

Have been going to Nicks for the past few year for dinner with our family of 5. Seafood is always fresh, and the service always very good. This review however is for their Mothers day experience. Due to the pandemic we were not able to...dine onsite, and took advantage of take out. A little nervous about ordering, especially seafood to go, but this was absolutely phenomenal. The lobster bisque soup was amazing, fried calamar super fresh, and the grilled pulpo i decided not to share (it was mothers day lol) it was that good. the surf and turf was the perfect dinner and almond cake deserts i also decided not to share. PS, they also had the most beautiful hydrangeas and calla lillies for sale and at super good pricing.More

When we want a Great Seafood Meal we always head to Nick's Lobster House in Marine Park. We know we will get quality in both ingredients and service. We returned once again for a great lunch. Yes, the restaurant was filled and continued to fill...while we were there. Got a great table by the window with the view of Mill Basin Waterway. The bar serves great drinks and cocktails. Look at the blackboard to see the daily specials. We enjoyed their Caesar Salad as a change with a wonderful original dressing. The main entrees were the Grill Salmon w seasoned rice and mixed sauteed vegetables. And also Angel Hair Pasta with White Clam Sauce. And we had space for dessert and hot beverage. You are never rushed to leave and enjoy our continued company. Being regulars, we are lucky to have the staff always come over to the table to see that all is going well. And if he is available, Chef Dimitri will visit your table to reassure you of your visit and experience. Please give Nick's a try and if I can add, come empty and ready to enjoy a delightful meal to remember. Lobsters, Clams, Oysters, Seafood and even Steaks available, enjoy!More

I loved my dinner!!! We went on a Friday night to celebrate my father’s birthday and couldn’t have been more pleased. The food was delicious and the portion sizes were great. Shout out to the bartender that night making all of our drinks absolutely without...a doubt perfect. I may have to come back just for the drinks one night. The service was excellent on all ends. The chef came out multiple times to make sure everyone was enjoying their food throughout the restaurant and so did the manager when she heard we were celebrating a birthday. It exceeded my expectations for sure. Can not wait to come back.More

Nick's Lobster House has been around since 1955 and still going strong. Always greeted at the front door like family. We always get a great table to view Mill Basin Waterway. They take your drink order as soon as you are seated. At this time...there is a New Autumn/Winter Menu which has some of the Oldies Dishes that are traditional and some New Dishes that are great. Most of the guests that visit seeing other table tops like the Lobster, Mussels, Crab Legs and the Great Soup/Chowder. But there are many other items on the Menu. We today like Raw Clams Dish, NE Clam Chowders, Green Salad w new Honey Shallot Dressing, Halibut Dish, Twin Lobster Tails w White Scampi Sauce with Baked Clams before hand. They do have an extensive Bar/Beer/Cocktail Menu. Every meal can be ended with a good cup of coffee. The Desserts unfortunately is commercial but very tasty to enjoy. Please give it a try and enjoy good time to eat and drink and enjoy a table of good company..More

The midweek lobster special of two one-and-a-half-pound lobsters for the price of one, but without double the corn and potato, was a reasonably good deal at $51. Two of us thought the lobsters were tender, flavorful, and not overcooked. The sides, however, were bland, the...potato dry and hard, other vegetables plain. A hamburger was tasty and well cooked. The New England clam chowder was thickened with flour and lumpy. The lobster bisque lacked flavor. The lobster roll was smallish without much lobster. The two fish tacos had very little fish and were composed mostly of shredded raw cabbage. The tortillas strangely both tough and limp. The Kendall Jackson white wine was way overpriced. The service was excellent; our waiter was friendly and helpful. The large covered deck on Mill Basin (an inlet of Jamaica Bay) should be charming but felt gloomy. The other rooms seemed cavernous. There is lots of free parking.More
