“Pre game and post game rituals”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

This bar has been around forever and is one of the best college bars in the country. The atmosphere is incredible anytime of the week, but especially before or after football and basketball games. The beer is always cold and pizza is really good as are the frenchfries. The stromboli, which has been the Nick's signature sandwich for 40 years or more, is not as good the last 18 months as previous. It is skimpier on meat, has less taste and generlly is not the old "strom". The sweet pickles are still the same however and if you do have a strom ask for extra pickles. Surprisingly the chicken breast sandwich, not what I normally order in a bar, is really outstanding. It has a large breast, very moist and great taste. The drinking is superb with "sink the biz" as a game you must try at your table. Legendary college bar, a must, just need a little improvement in their stroms.

“So many buckets”
Reviewed December 6, 2012 via mobile

Get your biz bucket, order biz fries, get some amigos, and you are set. So many saturday nights were spent around the bar upstairs playing sink the biz. One of my favorite bars in the USA

“Downtown Experience”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

It's been around forever, but it hasn't become mired in the past- just steeped in tradition. the Chef serves great food for a "sports bar" but it's more than that- friendly staff that remember your face and a really great place to catch any game/match you are dying to see and be left alone in peace to cheer or cry as much as you want. :)
