“superb albeit pricey dinner with a gorgeous view”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

This was a real find. the cuisine was excellent (fish dishes, sales, oysters) with excellent wine by the glass. We had a table by the window with a lovely view as the end of the day arrived. We would go back again in a heartbeat.

“Small plates rock!”
Reviewed September 10, 2012 via mobile

We elected to get one of each of the appetizers for our three-person lunch group. great all around. wonderful views and great creative dishes . the girls at the reception desk for the restaurant need training or replacement . they were rude and attentive. the bar tender was very good, friendly, and attentive. we will return. would love to stay at the cottages.

“Great spot!”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Nick's cove is a great place for dinner, a very special occassion kind of place. We did not stay in the lodging, but that looked great too. The food was very good and it was worth the trip!

“Great stop”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

This was one of our stops on the way up the coast in search of the perfect BBQ oyster. This is a great little location, with a view of Tamales Bay (which we kayaked prior to our stop) and Hogs Island. They have a full bar and an open kitchen. Loved the set up. We only had Laginitas on tap with some BBQ oysters (turned out they were from Washington) and after having better ones up the road at our previous stop these ones were disappointing. The rest of their menu looked good though and the staff was plentiful and very friendly. We will go back again and try something different another time (or perhaps if they have local oysters, those again). All in all, it was a great stop in our day!

“Ride the Coast - Stop at Nicks Cove”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

This is a really cool stop. Nice scenery on the water, cool as hell bar - has micro brewery beers & a really good place to eat.
Staff is friendly & Nicks Cove is Biker friendly.
Try the BBQ oysters - nice !!

As an aside, there are cabins to rent & would make a really cool relaxing place to spend a weekend. Take a walk out on the wharf to the bait shop with boat parking.
