    Service was excellent as always. The food was great as well. The odd thing about our visit this time was, as you entered from lake, it had a STRONG ODOR OF FISH. Thank God we we’re seated in a booth by the kitchen. Other than that… Great times! JC

    I usually come here for dinner and love the food and service. Decided to try it out for lunch for a business meeting and the place is too loud. Would come here for dinner with friends but do not come here if you want to talk business with clients.

    This is MY favorite Nick’s location! Been to 3 of the 5! Might check out Laguna Beach but the beauty of this property is elegant. The food is delicious! And I believe the only Nick’s with a pizza oven. Absolutely LOVE the service my family and I get. We are regulars and a special “shoutout” to Kelsey, Marquis, and Ryan! Top notch service given by all! Nice special occasion restaurant too! You will not be disappointed!

    This was my fifth time dinning at Nick’s. As always the service was amazing along with the food. I like it so much my friend and I will be dinning there next-week. Nick’s is one of my go restaurants. It is worth the money spent. Reservations are not required but highly recommended.

    Food and Service as good as ever. As a bonus found table where the music didn’t drown out conversation.

    First visit and maybe our expectations were a little high due to all the fabulous reviews. After we checked in, even thought we were the only party waiting for a table, we got asked 4 times for our name even thought the tablet showed us as checked in. We finally were seated after about 15-20 minutes. Placed our drink order and finally had to flag down the waitstaff to take our meal order - again about 20 minutes after we were seated. Seemed like the waiter was catering to a party ordering lots of drinks. After that meal service was fine although our waiter never checked on us to see how our meal was - only after we were almost done did he stop by and ask if we wanted dessert. Coming from hospitality background was a bit disappointed in service and timing for such a nice establishment. For the meal we had the veggie burger and Cajun fish burger - both which were tasty. Go for the food and not the service.
