The outside dining area is incredibly noisy for outdoor space. I guess it's the ceiling?

The service was very good, waitress was sweet, really need to vent the place better, gonna have to send my coat to the cleaners because of the food smell, took a while to get our food, not sure why. My food was disappointing, just ok, bloody Mary was even less disappointing, ambiance reminded me of a cafeteria. Will not be going back, sorry.

Not exactly the ambience I expected (heck it’s a pandemic and the concrete patio in the back with good wind protection) but it was just fine. Short menu but really delicious; best risotto I’ve had in decades, chicken breast was really tender, and service was friendly and helpful. Would go back.

As always, a lovely meal. I had the scup with veggies, trying to be a low carb kid that night. It was delish! I didn’t feel any regret that I skipped the rigatoni which I also love! Well done!

Always a warm reception here. I feel the prices are a bit high for the amount you get but the food is very palatable and I appreciate the creativity.
I went here for lunch on a Wednesday so wasn’t too surprised that it was pretty mellow.

The Eggs Benny, the Mimosas, the Bloody Mary's, and the coffee are outstanding. The entire staff was friendly and helpful. Our server was attentive, helpful, funny, and friendly. We could have stayed there all day long. We will be back again and again!

We are never disappointed when we eat at Nicks. The food is fabulous, service friendly and efficient, and the chocolate bread pudding dessert was probably the best thing I've eaten in ages. Not overly sweet but a medley of amazing tastes. And I'm not even a big dessert person, but this was over the top good!

Food was so delicious, portion size was appropriate too (not huge, but filling). Definitely not your ordinary brunch joint. The only thing was that the food took a while to arrive.

This place has gone through many Covid changes. It’s disappointing not to be able to sit at the counter and watch the cooking staff. I do like the way that nicks has loosened up the menu with more offerings and larger decision possibilities. Unfortunately it took our waiter a woefully long time to come to our table for an initial greeting/to bring water. I ordered two glasses of wine, the first of which was an incredibly short pour. The food was very good even though my wife said her risotto was too salty. Don’t get me wrong. There’s much to enjoy about the nicks experience and this dinner was quite enjoyable—even though our neighbors at the next table were excessively loud and the incessant bell in the kitchen area became obnoxious.

I love the vibe at Nick's and usually the food, but I made the wrong choice that day. I had the eggs and veggies, and the veggies were tough and not at all what I was expecting. Everyone else in our group loved their meals, and I will still go back, but it was a disappointing meal for me.

I had a fantastic evening/meal at Nick's. We sat outside under the covered patio. It was raining and cool. It was a perfect evening. The wonderful atmosphere was paralleled with the outstanding food. I had the most amazing tomato zucchini soup with basil and my main course was the BEST grilled cheese sandwich that I have ever had! I highly recommend this place.

Had a wonderful meal at Nicks. The waitperson was helpful, friendly and attentive. We enjoyed both of our meals plus we had roasted oysters as an appetizer and they were delicious. Outdoor space is very pleasant and good for conversation.
Good, reasonable wine list.
Would definitely go back.
