Have eaten at Nicks for 45 years and seen a few management transitions. Even so the nostalgia makes the drive pretty good. 3 of us went last week for filet and baked. I ordered large filet medium and the other 2 small filets MW. Guess...More

Our family of four ate here early on a Thursday night and by the time we left there was a crowd outside on the patio waiting to be seated. We started with a Nicodemus and onion rings. Their signature drink is perfect - sweet and...More

The food and atmosphere are incredible. No trip to T-town is complete without a trip to Nick's. The filet is better than you can get at any fancy steakhouse.

Nick's is a great low key restaurant with an awesome signature drink. Everything on the menu is worth trying at least once. O have been going here weekly for years and would highly recommend for a unique experience.

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
