Love Nick's on 2nd....our favorite neighborhood restaurant. Would normally give Nicks 5 stars...but this dining event did not meet the expectations or come close to our previous experiences at this restaurant. Took my hubby here for dinner on Fathers Day! I know its a busy day, but our reservation was at 4pm. We were seated outside, weather was beautiful but the table was full sun. Ordered champagne and wine. My husband loved the chicken and gravy. The sea bass was delicious......although, The portion of fish was very small and the baked potato was room temperature. Who wants to endure the calories of a baked potato if its not hot and delicious! Our waitress went on break, and another waitress was covering, therefore, no one was around for me to send advise the waitress about the potatountil I was almost finished with my meal. They did bring me a potato after we were finished eating.....but would've been nice to have it hot with the meal. Seemed like we spent more time waiting for fresh food to come out then we should have had to. Overall we had a nice time, but annoyed with the unpleasant experience.

Celebrating our anniversary. Our server Hannah was very attentive as were all the staff who checked in regularly. Enjoyed our dinner. Just wish it wasn’t so noisy. It made conversation difficult at times.

Great service and the food was very good. The waitress went on a break but before she left she brought her relief over and introduced them to the table. The food was delivered quickly and all the plates had a great presentation.

Nick's is consistently excellent...it's one of our favorites. My wife and I enjoyed the steak salad, which was nicely served with the steak on the side, and the Scottish salmon. Service was awesome as well.

Met my daughter for brunch. She really enjoyed the California Omelet. I had the short rib Benedict. It was good. Great vibe and location. Parking lot across the street made it easy!

I've been going to Nick's for years but have never tried their weekend brunch. With three beloved friends in tow, I finally indulged. Nick's has outstanding service, and we were pampered. The food was incredible--light fluffy waffles with fruit, omelettes to die for, biscuits, and the coffee is always rich and plentiful. I saw a plate of fried chicken and waffles go by--I'll be getting that next time.

The Restaurant was very loud so loud that we could not hear each talk across the table. Where we were seating was next to the wall between the Bar standing area and the restaurant part. People standing in the bar area was standing over us while we were trying to eat and talking to each other. I felt very uncomfortable.
The Salmon was cooked to perfection. The Service was excellent.

The food is always fresh and delicious. I went out of my comfort zone and ordered the baby back pork ribs and they did not disappoint. The meat completely fell off the bone and was super flavorful. The service was impeccable. Our waters never got below half full before the server came around to refill. Nicks is always a staple in our date nights and will continue to be.

Our server Haley was excellent - very attentive but not intrusive. Food was awesome as always. Nick's is on the expensive side, but still one of my favorite restaurants as the quality is always great. I wish it were not so loud inside. I usually sit outside so it is quieter, but the weather hasn't been nice so have been sitting indoors recently. It is VERY loud inside.

Went here for the first time to celebrate my parents’ 39th wedding anniversary - Amber was great and everyone even signed a card for my parents. That small gesture was so thoughtful and made the experience even more special! Food was OUTSTANDING and I highly recommend the lemon cake! Can’t wait to go back!

Nick's never disappoints. The service is consistently top-notch and the food and drinks are always on point. Fun, friendly vibe always.
Can get a little pricey if you're drinking. Would be nice if they had lunch prices, as it's a great place to go during the day, but just as expensive as dinner.

I had a reservation at 8 and the place was nice. The ambiance was okayish and there was a really loud table of drunk women close by. I ordered a veggie but which tasted good and the soup of the day was great as well! Limited vegetarian options with nil vegan options. However, it’s slightly expensive being a regular restaurant and not one of those high end ones.
