Great food. Atmosphere was fun.
Staff was very nice.
Highly recommend this place....great atmosphere and the food is amazing... overall great place to go
Meeting old friends food was good service good the restaurant was beautiful
I loved the ambiance, high ceilings, mural on the exposed brick. I absolutely loved the Frank Sinatra era music that played until 7pm. It's the most romantic of all music. My husband's Nucky burger was good and our cauliflower appetizer. I had the grilled chicken and avocado club. It was very good and messy. A two fister for sure. We'd like to see a movie here as well. Oh, an old movie was projected on the wall which was very cool.
Enjoyed our experience as we had on previous visits. Food was excellent.
Service was just okay. They were out of some items. Had 4 apps two were good. Entrees came out different than described on menu. Will give it some time before going back.
Nice variety of dishes, food was delicious. Service was great.
My wife’s Bugsy chicken was dry and Tough. Manager was ignorant and wanted to give us a free dessert.
Food was pretty good but service was excellent. Our server was very attendant to us. She checked in with us continuously to make sure we had everything we need. Definitely going back.
Love this place! Anticipated this place pre-Covid and now so happy they have opened!! First, encounter was pleasant and helpful! The hostess was sweet! Our waitress was attentive, friendly, down to earth! Drinks were lovely! Food was delicious! We had chicken & waffles, lasagna, chicken Alfredo!! Everyone was quite pleased with their order! We will be returning soon!!
Love the overall experience and looking forward to going back tomorrow!
Love the atmosphere ! Food was great but took long to come out… they gave us dessert at no charge. I will definitely go back !
Awesome place for relaxing and great food and service
We were greeted by a hostess (name I forgot, it was Sat night upstairs Aug 28) she was such a terrific first impression! She made us feel so welcomed and special. Great sense of humor!!
Our server was David. Terrific!!! He was so patient and accommodating. Super nice and professional. We also encountered a server Lisa. Omg she is amazing!!! What a treasure!
We also took notice that the noise level is under control! Well done!
Delicious food with and incredible cozy space! Good service!
Our first visit. We are born and raised in Ventnor and couldn’t be happier with the return and reinvention of the Ventnor theater with the wonderful addition of Nuckys!
The food, service and drinks were excellent Looking forward to our next visit.
Loved the concept
It was our first time there but it won’t be our last! Our hostess, our servers, the food, the ambience, the live music - it all came together and made for a lovely evening out. We sat on the deck of the 2nd floor restaurant, and even when it started to rain and we had to run inside, it didn’t dampen our lovely evening. My husband had the teriyaki salmon and I had the shortrib tacos, and both were delicious. We shared a yummy chocolate cake for dessert. When I had asked for a decaf coffee to go with dessert and was told that they had run out of decaf, an experienced server came up with a brilliant way for me to be able to enjoy coffee without all the caffeine. It was quick thinking on her part, made us feel like we really mattered, and we walked out with smiles and full tummies. Thank you Team Nucky’s, and we will see you again soon!
Great service. Awesome waitresses
First time at Nucky’s Kitchen and what a pleasant surprise. The service and food were superb. The portions are quite large and well prepared. Our server David did an excellent job. Tables were nicely spaced so you didn’t feel like other diners were on top of you. We were on the second floor and as the room filled up the noise level was pretty loud. Other than the noise level, we definitely will return to Nucky’s.
I was familiar with the downstairs restaurant and didn’t realize there was an upstairs with both indoor and outdoor seating. The space is great. Casual but classy. The menu seems to be the same upstairs and downstairs. There is huge variety. I had a big entree salad with tuna added. My husband had a pork loin special. One kid had chicken fingers from the kid menu and the other kid had the super yummy chicken and waffles. Our food was tasty. The service was slow. Perhaps there was only one server for the entire upstairs? He was very pleasant. We were simply too hungry to enjoy the slow service. Overall great and would return.
Very good food and service.
Really fun energetic vibe. Great for a date night. Dinner & movie
They were low on cooks, which was fine, except there were other issues (out of iced teas and did not inform us after someone in our party ordered), and we asked to have something comped because we had waited two hours and our food was not ready, and they only offered to comp two drinks. We ended up taking our food to go, and one order was messed up, another was very over cooked.
The Setting is very nice - a renovated movie theatre. The service was very good - friendly and attentive. The cocktails were excellent. The appetizers were good, particularly the brussel sprouts. Two entrees were delicious - lobster ravioli and short rib tacos. The filet tip sandwich was bland. The chicken on the chicken and waffles was dry and in no way resembled buttermilk fried chicken. I would recommend cocktails and appetizers.
Great staff, very good food, bread was ...eh...so was olive. Would definitely go back!
Great place! Fun atmosphere!
Very slow service- drinks took exceptionally long to arrive. Empty/ finished plates not cleared between courses. Crab dip pita? Inedible and beyond stale tasting. Entrees were decent.
Very classy and quiet. Perfect for date night. Live music down stairs, quiet dining area upstairs. Also has a movie theater. Hostess on sat us was very polite, welcoming, and informative. Food was perfect. Was expecting to spend twice as much as my bill came out to be. Very affordable despite the upscale environment. Wait staff could have been more attentive, but overall, I’d totally recommend dining here and I will be back.
Very good service atmosphere and greetings
Hostess was extremely rude! Place was empty would not seat us until our exact reservation time. No elevator and only reservations on second floor which we were unaware of when we booked. Requested a window table would not let us sit there ! Atmosphere very nice drinks good but will not return
The hostess and server were absolutely wonderful. The food left a lot to be desired…
We had a great time. The service was great, the food was great and the ambiance was fantastic. Can’t wait to go again.
Food and drinks were great! Servers are friendly and attentive.
We had agreat time!! Very interesting atmoshpere, pleasantly surprised!
This is a unique experience! You can have a dinner or a bar experience. Menu is both burgers but dinner as well. You can attend a movie first. Such a different venue.
Nucky’s was awesome. We sat upstairs at 5pm on a Sunday. Food was great and appropriately priced, service was prompt and kind, and the general ambiance was super cool with the historical integrity of the place left intact. We didn’t venture into the bar on the ground floor put it was typical bar level noise when we walked past on our way out. The two person band they had playing was enjoyable and the look of the bar area was also very cool. Definitely recommend. Looking forward to checking out the movie theater portion soon too
Service was little slow, which is to be expected at the shore during COVID. Food was not good. You could tell most ingredients was frozen, not fresh or generally not up to the quality you’d associate with the price points. Eg. Calamari rings and baby shrimp in the special shrimp tacos. We won’t be back.
