Had dinner here last week. My husband and son thought the crab dip was delicious. Onion loaf tastes pretty good, but almost didn't try it. The presentation was not very attractive. According to hubby ribs and shrimp were decent. I had a filet that was...More

Always come to Nicks while in Ocean City. Their food is delicious, friendly staff and the ribs and BBQ sauce is outstanding.

My expectation was to have awesome ribs. My real life experience wasn't even close. If I'm going out and paying almost $30 for a rack of ribs, I should be pretty happy with what's presented, right? Once they figured out who would serve us, the...More

My wife loved her barbeque chicken and my steak was very good. Family friendly. Good food but a little pricey.

I advice you to contact Nick's by phone and ask them if they have the gluten-free menu that is my advice to you.

Description
World famous baby back ribs! It all starts with the food, and since 1983 we have been serving up the moistest, most tasty, fall off the bone great ribs you will ever have. Not to be outdone by the ribs the rest of our menu, including Juicy steaks, and unbelievably good crab cakes and seafood, and salads, offers something for everyone. Our newly updated dining room will deliver an upscale experience at many different price points. Or if you choose a little more relaxed experience, our pub has 30+ high def tvs for all the latest sports action, 24 craft draft beers, and an extensive wine, and whiskey list. If you have not been in for a while, or are looking to impress that special one, or your family, Nicks is a place that should be on your must do list.
