Great lunch with friends on patio. Cioppino was terrific? Crusty loaf of bread delicious. Easy access on 2nd street. A bit spendy, but worth it for special occasions. Be sure to make reservations.....lunch or dinner.

Nick's on 2nd has incredible service: attentive, responsive, free with suggestions when asked, knows wine and the menu ingredients well. The wait staff steered us to a great pinot noir and made suggestions to ensure my supper was gluten-free. Our steaks were tender and almost melted in our mouths and the scallops were so delicious and just the right quality. And my son and his girlfriend loved their burgers and luxurious mac and cheese.

The only downside to Nick's is that it is a busy place with little in the way of architectural sound absorption modifications so the place can be super lively and loud.

Nick's on 2nd was recommended to us and I am so glad we went! It had delicious food and a great atmosphere. The servers (at the bar) were attentive and kind and helped us with picking some great choices of meals for our lunch. If we were there longer, I would have gone back for dinner. This is a sure bet for a mid-priced meal!

Recommended by VRBO owner and I'm so glad we took her advice! We went on a Wednesday night, no reservation. We were greeted warmly and seated right away. Our waitress was fantastic, made great recommendations. Our glasses were full, the good was beyond AMAZING. Great portion size, reasonable prices, especially considering the quality of the dishes. So delicious! Highly recommend!

Food is good to very good. Service is excellent - attentive, responsive, helpful, and with a nice touch. If you sit inside and it is full - say goodbye to a conversation. Yelling to be heard is just not fun as part of enjoying good food. If you are lucky enough to sit outside, the noise is still present, but one can still talk.
