Obviously a higher rating because of the ambiance, but our food wasn't shabby. After being treated like dirt over at Capt. Bill's we headed to Nicky's, and I am glad we did. It was a Sunday ,prime lunch time, and we got an outdoor table right away. It should be noted though we sat at that table for quite some... More

Nicky's is located inside the Bay Shore Marina. It's a huge, cavernous space with a nice long bar. Beautiful views of the boats and the Great South Bay. Pretty standard seafood menu. Everything was edible, no complaints, but nothing was spectacular. Service was very good.

Food is good. Great views of Great South Bay but went when there was no seating upstairs. Better now but make it more comfortable. Music on weekends. Good seafood, fresh. Downstairs air conditioned or outdoor seating now. Wait staff and greeters have to get way more professional with these prices. Bar crowded, poorly run. Great potential. You have to pay... More

Had the peppered tuna...serving was so small for the price..was almost child sized...nothing comes with it...no bread for the table...so the sauce at the bottom of the linguini and clam sauce (which was good) went to waste...no water for the table...gave two stars because service was good...

Nicky's is a crowd pleaser! From great seafood to an awesome view, Nicky's is the best. We had an impromptu retirement gathering for a colleague and everything was amazing. Definitely recommend for a bite to eat or a party.

Ate lunch here this past week. We opted to sit outside as it was a warm and sunny October day and watch the boats come and go. One in our party started with the seafood bisque which he said tasted awful. I have to comment that the color looked like a playdoh red and not very appetizing. The waiter said... More

Love Nicky's Clam Bar and Nicky's on the Bay is even better. Great view, great hamburger and the sweet potato fries should win prizes. Tried my bride's Corn Chowder, excellent. Interesting getting too (Clinton to the bay) but well worth the trip.

I visited Nicky's for the first time on a recent Friday night in September when the weather was clear and comfortable; others in my group had been there before and loved the place, and now I see why! Sit inside or out depending on the weather and enjoy the fabulous views as the Fire Island Ferries come in and out.... More
