I apologize that you had a bad experience. The irony of the whole thing is that I talked to every employee and manager and no one recalls the situation that you describe. We never send out one plate at a time, everything goes out together....More

The Food is Great !! The salads are the best in town. The Wings are awesome! On Friday they serve Home made Clam Chowder (delicious). The Service is the BEST!! The atmosphere leaves a lot to be desired. The Owner should update.

Nick's is always fun, and the food is always pretty good. Nick's is basically a bar, and has karaoke on some nights, so they have good burgers and palatable bar food.
