  • Great customer service, with good food & drink. The bar is cool with lots of beers on tap. The upstairs is great if you have a large group and need some space to spread out. There's a pool table, a couch, and flat screens to watch the game on. Check'em out !!!.”
  • “Excellent! We were coming from out of town and it was between Nick's and BJ's. Nick's was awesome. The burgers were great as was the pizza and soup. Plus great beers ... especially if you like IPA's. It is a bit a hole in the wall ... definitely not corporate BJ's ... great atmosphere ... upstairs had pinball (with a broken flipper ... the one thing that wasn't good), pool, darts and good tv. Was family friendly (upstairs). And the Joe IPA was the topper.”
  • “Best Pizzeria on the Peninsula! Great variety at Nicks!! They have a pretty extensive menu and over 20 beers on tap. The pizza is amazing, as is the rest of the menu. The have newer flat screens and the service is always outstanding. Highly recommend!.”
