We sat at the bar, and had a terrific time. Get the Artichoke....it was amazing. We had a bottle of top notch wine. What a great place!

“Nicks The Best”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

We ate here again after a two year absence and it was still the best food, location and seating arrangements-lots of booths. Our server Matt was very personable and attentive. The variety on the menu was great. Would recommend it to anyone!

“Worth a drive”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

I've eaten here twice and both times was very pleased. The food is delicious, the servie friendly, the outdoor patio is great. We drive from San Diego for a fun evening getaway dinner!

“If I lived in Laguna I'd be a regular”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

From the craft brewed Nick's Blonde Ale, through the award-winning asparagus fries, to the killer entrees ( sea bass for my wife, ciapino seafood stew for me) this was by far the best meal of our recent trip to SoCal. Casual ambience, great staff, and a seat on the patio watching the Sun set on the beach down the street- all at a price you would not believe.

Great rib-eye melt, good and friendly service, affordable prices, sun shining - what else can one expect from lunch?
