we come from Plymouth ma. and winter in Deerfield beach fl. we were introduced to nicks by a neighbor who lived in new haven ct and now lives in Deerfield beach. we have been to nicks several times with family and love their salads and pizza "they are not to generous with their mixed drinks from the bar" and we have heard other people have the same complaint. even the help agree. if you pay good money for a drink then give a good drink. if you like well done pizza you can't beat nicks. the waiters and waitress are great along with the twin sisters hostess

Pizza arrives hot and delicious but it gets cold pretty quickly - I had to send it back to be reheated since it also got soggy.

Thank you for your review. We're happy to hear you found our pizza to be delicious. Unfortunately, even after being cooked at an excess of 750 degrees in our coal fired brick ovens, pizza can cool quickly. We are always more than happy to reheat your pizza to ensure that every slice is as enjoyable as the first.

We have been to Nick's several times. The pizza has always been outstanding and we always vary our selection of pizza plus salad. Both the house and the Caesar are outstanding for quality and taste. This time it was an outstanding pizza with artichoke, mushrooms, egg plant and black olives. OUTSTANDING. The big surprise was the waiter. This was the first time in about 6 visits that we had a waiter with a smile, a sense of humor and seemed to enjoy his job. My only complaint about Nicks is it always appears that the manager and the employees are waiting tables at a prison. Always rushed and never friendly or outgoing. I forget the waiter's name..he was rushed as usual..but he had a great smile & seemed happy to be our server. I hope he was punished for his great service. With such great food, why are most of people at Nick's so unfriendly?

This place is definitely more up to date then say Pepe's or Modern Apizza in New Haven but this is my complaint aside from the fact that New Haven Pizza can not be duplicated. It tastes much better...but Nicks is a distant second. Better then Anthony's Coal Fired.

I ordered a large pizza and my friend ordered a medium pizza. When the pies came out, the medium was larger then the large. I told the server and then I told the manager. The manager said the pizzas sometime shrink in the oven but dough wise/weight, it is larger.

Now, I have never been to a pizzeria where the medium is larger then the large. The manager didn't try to make this right. I just told him that I would never order a large pie again because I'm not into paying more money for a smaller pie. $24.00 half pepperoni and half sausage. He walked away and that was it.

I know the cost of this pizza was about $3.00 to make and yet this manager didn't see the value in trying to make it right based on a valid customer complaint.

Thank you for taking the time to write us after your recent visit. We take great care in handcrafting every pizza that we serve our guests. However, variations do happen. Our Manager was correct in stating that occasionally pizzas do shrink in the oven but the dough does in fact weigh more. It's also possible that the medium pizza may have been stretched more which resulted in the elongated appearance. Regardless, we strive to ensure that each guest enjoys their experience at Nick's and finds value in decision to dine with us. We regret that we did not acknowledge your complaint and correct it on the spot. We'd like the opportunity to rectify the situation by offering you a complimentary pie. Please contact us at nickspizzabar@gmail.com.
