“You Know Why It's Crowded”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

Five of us fit comfortably in a booth and the waitress was right there for our drink order. Stay with the beers and skip the wine list; it's not that kind of place. Everything on the menu is worth a try, especially the appetizers. The entrees are good (the operative word) and portions were plentiful. I'd say it's a cut above bar food and unpretentious. The live music was enjoyable and there was no cover charge - which is why some people may think the place too expensive. We had a great time, sang along, and were not rushed, even though the place was crowded. What more could you ask for? I know, I know, a cleaner ladies room, but as a guy, I don't care.

“Good food, location, service. Bathroom review is right on.”
Reviewed December 5, 2012 via mobile

Sitting on the Broadwalk in Hollywood Beach. Great location. Good menu. Good food. Good service. If sitting outside, watch out for aggressive seagulls. The women's bathroom needs to be nuked.

“Bar food place on beach serves bar food.”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

We visited Nick’s for the second time during our recent trip to florida. I did not review it before so I will now.

This is a nice place for a not so cheap date on the beach and to listen to some music when it is playing. The food was OK, its bar food, it’s not a gourmet restaurant. It’s a seafood based bar food kind of deal, It has fish and chips, burgers, beer, clams and oysters, its loud, the wait staff is informal and friendly, and the service was excellent.

We will go back

“Good food , great location”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

the food is consistently good and the service is great, right on the beach! I had the fried clams and I'd recommend them very much. Mahi mahi is also very good. Great atmosphere.
