“A wonderful birthday celebration”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

Had a birthday celebration with family. We managed to snag the last spot in the parking lot on a Saturday (lucky). Sat on the upstairs patio with a partial view of the ocean a couple of blocks away. We decided to have a bunch of appetizers. Faves: Ahi Poke, Shrimp Scampi with optional pasta (cost extra). The poke was great. Fresh tuna with cubes of cucumber and a tangy marinade. The scampi had some sliced jalapenos in nicely cooked pasta and was quite zesty. The chicken wings were just fine and the crabcakes were pretty good. The carne asada quesadilla was a little dry and cold by the time we got it, but we were having such a good time that it didn't matter. There was plenty of food for the four of us and we took leftovers of the poke (mine!), scampi and wings. The service was very attentive and perky. They even gave me a piece of cheesecake with a candle. A very nice lunch. We'll definitely be back.

Very happy with the menu options and the food was good. This place would be great if they changed the look. Excellent Lobster Salad.

“A great place for lunch”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

and people watching. It is right across the street from the beach and is upstairs, so you have a great view of the beach and ocean. Also lots of people watching too as this is a pretty busy section of the beach. Good food and reasonable prices. All around nice place for lunch or dinner.

“Great Food and Service!!”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

Nick's is a very great spot for good food and good value. It is a great spot for family dining downstairs. There is a fun bar upstairs with a pool tables and outdoor dining! We normally split a Cheeseburger, Santa Fe Casaer Salad and their amazing Onion Rings! Their wine prices are very reasonable. We are locals and frequent Nick's on a regular basis!
