Description: J.Nichols Kitchen is woven into the fabric of the neighborhood, providing the forum for power breakfasts, casual lunches or the dinner rendezvous. The staff is unpretentious, well trained and versed in all aspects of hospitality. The vibe is hip but humble; cool but inclusive; contemporary but mindful of their roots. J.Nichols Kitchen recognizes the need for broadly appealing comfort food served all day in a comfortable environment for a good price, where the food is fresh, the coffee delicious, and the assortment familiar and new.

“Great food, but turn down the air”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

I eat here when ever I am in Marina del Rey and the good is great. Service is okay, but they always run the air conditioner too much. I have to wear a sweater whenever I am there. I recommend, especially for take out.

“Not too shabby”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Decided to try J Nichols as part of our Friday Date Night and was pleasantly surprised. While the service started off a little slow, the food more than made up for the wait. I had the salmon and it was delish. Can't wait to try them for breakfast!

“Best breakfast in Marina del Rey!”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

My wife and I have been going here for breakfast for the past four years. We live around the corner and can walk here. We love their pancakes - so delish. They've recently upgraded the whole place and it looks really nice now. We've eaten dinner here a few times and it's pretty solid. Not as great as their breakfast but still better then the nearby Cheesecake Factory without all the noise and crowds.

“Immaculate with Beautiful Decor”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

This is the first time some in our party of six ate at this restaurant, though two have eaten here before it was remodeled.

We arrived on a Saturday at 1:30 p.m. and were immediately seated. The Wait Staff was friendly, patient and helpful. We ordered a variety of sandwiches to include BBQ Pulled Pork, Tuna Melt, Chicken Burgers, and Roast Beef. Orders came with regular sea salt fries or sweet potato fries. Portions were generous and delicious with excellent presentation.

We never had to ask for drinks, as staff came without prompting to give us new glasses of drinks. The prices on the menu were in line with any other restaurant, and we would definitely return for lunch again in the future.
