We had a great experience here on a busy Friday night. The steak burger and fried chicken were amazing, I'd have to say the best battered fried chicken of my life. The signature drink was very smooth and delightful. We were waiting for about 45...More

Excellent place for real fried chicken like good Southern cooks make. A bit out of the way but the service was great.

Got here early to beat the crowd. Steaks and salad were excellent and so were the drinks. Staff was excellent.

Not every meal needs to be elegant, and Nick's in the Sticks is just down home good cooking. Enjoyed a delicious dinner with my son who attends U Bama. Chicken meal was fried to perfection and steak was tender, cooked perfectly. Fun night!

A local favorite and somewhere we all come back to after graduation. There is a line to get in from 5 pm till 7 so come early. No reservations. Semi-nice outdoor seating area with bar while you wait. Try the Nicodemus! Great filets and sides....More

Basically, a quasi-roadhouse with a full bar, that stumbled on serving steaks. Everything about it is pretty grungy (I'm not sure how they actually manage to pass health dept reviews). I think if you're a regular the wait staff can be pretty friendly, but if...More

I first ate here in 1977 while in college and except for the addition of the front porch area, nothing has changed. Start your meal with the onion rings and Nicodemus and follow it up with a great steak. If you are looking for white...More
