Everything is good. Homemade salad dressings and ice cream pie are a must have! Been coming here since I was a little girl. Family and friends love this place.

Ate there last Saturday night with my wife. We had soup and salad then the main course. She had the chef's special and I had the prime rib......the best in the area. We then shared a molten lava cake. Bree did a wonderful job good night!!

If you are tired of chain restaurants with no personality then look no further than Nick's. The interior is a bit dated, but that 70's vibe does add to the charm. The prime rib is the best in Cookeville. The scallops are also excellent and my wife raves about the french onion soup. Just make sure that you save room... More

We eat there 4 or 5 times each year and everything is superior. The service is great and their selections are very good. The steaks are the best around.

We've been here a couple of times and have been very pleased with the quality of the food and service. Reasonable prices for the higher end menu. The prime rib was excellent, and we could have fed a small army with the serving of lasagna. They advertise the best steaks in town, I believe it. Will happily return next time... More

Nick's has been in business for over 40 years and always considered one of the best in Cookeville. I was disappointed and then found out the original owner was no longer there. Food was very average, I had salmon and I could have gone to Kroger and get the same quality. It had been recommended and while good not great.... More

We went on a Saturday night at 7 PM. We were seated immediately, and there were a ton of people eating. Even so, the restaurant is huge! I liked the rolls and the cheese bar. The entree was a shrimp pasta that was not good. It was bland, the shrimp tasted old and frozen, and I wasn't full when I... More
