“Confusing”
Reviewed June 20, 2012

There is a place called "Nick's Cafe" that is famous for Roast Beef. This is not the same place.
however, it is still a nice place located right there in the Old City, and the Roast Beef Sandwitch is very reasonable both in price and in value. There's also a nice selection of Draft beers and the service is good.

“Limited Menu”
Reviewed April 29, 2012

Almost everything is fried - menu more like a lunch menu or late evening snack.

“Great Bar for a late night hangout”
Reviewed November 22, 2011

We didn't eat here, but we got a couple drinks and a free shot. TV's, a fishtank and quiet atmosphere to have some beers, enjoy the time and not pay an arm and a leg for booze. Very chill. Great place.

“Comfy Place and Good Food with Great Drinks”
Reviewed November 19, 2011

Nothing to dislike (except maybe the occasional crowd that spills outside). Food is very good and the bartenders keep you going with both simple shots and fancy drinks depending on your mood.

“Good Cheesesteak, in a haunt with local flavor”
Reviewed November 18, 2011

A good old fashioned cheesesteak on a good roll, huge, reasonably priced, no wait on a weekday afternoon. Filled with locals, fast friendly service. yum.
