“Good Sports Bar”
Reviewed December 13, 2013

We stopped in for lunch on a saturday afternoon. It was a little odd because the place was a ghost town but other than that it was quite enjoyable. Between the apps and meals, the 5 of us hit just about every part of the menu and there were no complaints. It is not gourmet dining but it is totally acceptable pub food. I would recommend this to anyone staying at one of the hotels right across the street or heading to a baseball/football game, solid place.

“The Centrally Located Sports Bar”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

Sure the Camden Yards/M&T Bank area has a ton of watering holes.... but most of these places are just that 'holes'. Frank & NIcs is different.

This place is clean, modern and has several local beers on tap to complement the big-brewery-brands. The staff knows their beers, and circulate often to make sure the patrons are taken care of. We had one serve, but at least 2 other people came over to check on our party of 6 to make sure everything was 'Ok' with us. I like that.

The food is a step up from the generic bar food. My friend ordered the roasted pepper tomato soup and polished it off in minutes. I had the crab dip (which is how you judge a good bar in Maryland) - and it was good. No gimmicks - i.e. spices, creamier, etc. Just straight up crab dip.

Coconut shrimp was good, but could have used a few more in the basket. The fries that came with the shrimp must have been good because my friend made those disappear in short order.

Prices are very reasonable, and the bar is big enough that you can spread out - enjoy "YOUR" game and get some great beers & grub.

This is my bar of choice when going to an O's or Ravens game - or catching a concert in the area.

Bar: Clean. Open. Modern feel.
Food: Menu is extensive. My orders were good, and hoping to get some more good stuff here
Service: Like walking into a your local bar where your buddies work. Very friendly.
Bathrooms: Clean.
Parking: Parking lots primarily
Ambiance: Sports bar. Loud and rambunctious, but nothing out of control. Fun crowd.
Owners: On-scene and engaged in their business

Would recommend: Yes!
Would patronize again: Next time I'm in town for a game!

“Good sports bar”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

Cheap beer, great specials and decent pub food. But this is not a fine dining experience as was explained to us at the Hilton next door. It's a bar with cheap beers (ie tall boy Buds which we loved) and good apps.

The food is excellent...from burgers, fish and chips to specials...mahi mahi, steaks, beef stew, shepards pie!!!!...all of it.
Desserts you say...the bread pudding is amazing!
We just love Frank and Nic's...Thanks for always making our nights special!

“Good spot across from M&T stadium”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

Stopped at Frank and Nic's after the Ravens game. We were pleasantly surprised. Good food, good service, good time. Very clean bar/restaurant. I loved the fun atmosphere; not too noisy but definitely buzzing with football fans.

We were seated immediately. Our server was friendly and attentive. We both had burgers and fries. Everything was hot and delicious. We will definitely go back. A friend of mine goes there all the time and told me they have an awesome salmon salad so I'll try that next time.
