We recently had lunch here. All the food was delicious. I loved my black & blue mojito!!
Our server was always around when we needed her and all the staff was very good.

“Food was outstanding, we were broasted in the sun!!”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

We recently returned to Nick's to have a nice early dinner before the Pageant of the Masters and to celebrate our 24th Anniversary. We made a reservation but were told the only tables available were on the patio directly in the blazing sun. We enjoyed watching people drool as they walked by but did have to ask to be moved because the sun was too much. The food and service at Nick's are always top-notch and they didn't disappoint as usual. We'll be back!!
