I had the Salmon and brussell sprouts. Their ranch dressing which they make is the best ever! The place is old and the bar is beautiful dark wood. It was originally the Alpine Inn.

As Nick & Tom's website indicates, they have been a west side tradition since 1988. I have eaten there numerous times over the years as it is one of the closest restaurants to my in-laws' house. They often are packed solid on weekend evenings, including...my most recent visit with my wife. We took a few minutes without the kids to have a quieter dinner date while the kids played with their grandparents. Surprisingly we found a wait for a table on a random Saturday in January. But we were able to find a table in the bar by the time we ordered a drink at the bar. My wife and I shared the Biehl Street Sprouts ($10) with crispy Brussels sprouts, bacon, pecans, and goat cheese. These were delicious and I highly recommend them! The Brussels sprouts alone would have been good but add in the smoky bacon with the sweeter pecans and goat cheese and these should not be skipped! For dinner, I had the Mediterranean Pasta with chicken ($13.50). This combination of feta, sun-dried tomatoes, black olives, pepperoncini, basil, oregano, and garlic on vermicelli pasta is a Cincinnati Magazine Silver Spoon Award winner. Though the award seems to be from 10 years ago, the flavors are still a pretty good combination. The addition of a well-seasoned chicken breast was a good choice and I wouldn't recommend having the pasta without it. Overall Nick & Tom's is a solid restaurant, made even better by the lack of other good choices in the immediate area. We will definitely be back.More

Very busy but that's to be expected on NYE. Got the filet mignon with asparagus- fantastic. Usually get the salmon orfish tacos which are both fabulous. Love this local place.

We have lived on the Westside for a while and this was our first time at Nick and Tom's. It was a great experience!! The food was wonderful and the staff was really friendly. I had the G.O.A.T and my husband had The Big Easy...and we both enjoyed every bite. I will definitely be back sooner than later.More

Westside of Cincinnati does not have the restaurant choices that the Eastside does. We have not been here in over 10 years. They have divided the restaurant and made a "bar" area. It is likely a good move. However, the place is so loud that...it is difficult to talk over dinner. The food was great, and the prices are right. Service was also great. We really enjoyed our evening with another couple there. Definitely a place we will go to more often.More

This place used to have a very good steak so not sure if they changed where they get their steaks from or if the chef has changed but be careful how you order your steak If you order it medium well you can bet it...is over cooked and very tough to eat. This steak is priced way too high (28.00) for a poor cut of meat. Their menu needs to be redone and its bad to say but the chicken pot pie may be the safest thin to order. They do have awesome ranch dressing that they make there.More
