“Consistency issues.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2013 via mobile

Good, especially when they have specials. The problem is consistency, sometimes it's great and sometimes it isn't. Service is professional in most cases but can be unprofessional.

“Mediorcre”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2013

This was our third dining experience here and we were very disappointed this time. This is the second time I have tried to order the Prime Rib Sandwich to be told they are out of Prime Rib Sandwiches but that they do have Prime Rib. Hmmm guess they were out of sandwich bread? The Hors d'oeuvre ( Crab stuffed mushrooms) that we ordered was barely warm bordering on cold and no croutons on the salad. I don't think we will be returning for another visit.

“Decent and Pricey”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2013 via mobile

Just finished a meal at Nick's, and I had the Black and Blue Ribeye. The steak was flavorful and tender, but I think they forgot the chipotle in the chipotle mashed potatoes and the Sister Schubert dinner rolls were sub-par given the venue.

That said, the service was absolutely great, and the sweet tea was perfect to boot.

Final word: I'll try another restaurant next time.

“Nice ambiance and mediocre food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013 via mobile

The tap room was recommended by the hotel and the trip advisor reviews seemed good enough to try. The ambiance of the old movie theatre is nice. The steaks and service was just average. Very little flavor on the steaks. Hope that when we visited it was just an off night
