While visiting Long Beach to see family, they took us to Nick’s on 2nd. The place was hoping! They were very accommodating, as I am handicapped. They also asked if we’d like something to drink while we waited. We were seated outside and when it...More

Nick's is the best restaurant in Belmont Shore!! The decor and atmosphere are spot on. I hesitate telling more people how great it is because it is already REALLY hard to get a table at a normal mealtime.So, plan a late lunch or early dinner...More

We were lucky enough to get in without a reservation, 7:30 Sunday night. Awesome appetizers, drinks, food, staff, ambience...everything you could want or need. I like the prime rib dip, but be sure to ask for extra jus you will need it.

We had to wait a lot longer than expected Manager was nice and apologetic. Both our fish dishes were good. Service was also good.

Nick's is by far my fav on 2nd Street, and in my top five overall. For lunch/dinner: Seafood Enchiladas are life changing...truly. If you go for breakfast, you really can't go wrong with Chicken & Waffles.

Found Nick's after deciding to get out of the touristy convention center area to experience more "local" atmosphere. There are all kinds of places on 2nd near Nick's, but when I walked in, I knew picked the right place. Excellent atmosphere, bar service was exceptional....More

I don't recall if they had gluten free, but we ate with our son who has multiple food allergies and they were great about working with him to find something safe to eat.

Yes, Nick's on 2nd has a lunch menu, and they serve brunch on weekends. They took our late lunch reservations when we were there last. I'm sure they have vegetable entrees, and I'm sure you know that you have to ask... More
