We're back to Arizona for the winter and thawing out from Montana. The minute we get to town we head to this restaurant. We LOVE their food, atmosphere and service. By far, the best restaurant (and the only restaurant) worth mentioning around here. Beautiful presentation. Sumptuous meals. Down home comfort and hospitality. Love that Bouillabaisse :) We also celebrated our Valentine's Day Dinner here and they made it a night to remember. Thank you Nichol's West. You're the best!

While exploring West Central Arizona, we found, by word-of-mouth, (thanks again, Holly!) a gastronomical oasis in a 'desert' of the mundane. The facade gave no hint of the epicurean delights within!! Once inside, we were warmly greeted by Christina, who made us feel very welcome. There's a full bar, great wine selection, as well as several micro brews. The menu is varied and reasonable. We each had something different, shrimp quesadillas, fish filet sandwich, wonderful burger, cooked to perfection. I was a little nervous, ordering seafood in the middle of the desert, but it was all fantastic!! Even the restrooms were unique, decorated with portraits of dogs who had been rescued by the local humane society. Luckily, we'll be in the area another week so we can dine there again, before we head home.

We came across Nichols West by chance, but we were more than pleased and pleasantly surprised by the great food and the clean and pleasant atmosphere. We definitely recommend this place and plan to visit again when we are in the area. A great place to try and you will also be surprised!

We always plan to reach Congress in time for lunch so we can stop at Nichols West. If we lived in Congress, we'd go here for everything from coffee to special holiday meals to drinks and sports on the (not-too-loud) TV. It has a welcoming atmosphere, part local hangout, part specialty cafe. It's always open, and the dinner menu looks great, too. Nichols West has good burgers with fries as well as delightful offerings such as the beet & feta cheese salad or quiche. The menu shows hints of an east-coast background, as does the name. The portions are western-sized : generous.

Stopped here for coffee and had food on the patio as well. Coffee was excellent. Scallops were great. Couple near us had a 'chocolate box' that they really liked and had to take some of it home. It was chocolate in chocolate. :) Nice atmosphere, nice staff.
