We were seated quickly. Our table had a wonderful view of the water and boardwalk. The restaurant was busy but service and food were fast.

Nick's has the same kitchen as Guido's, or so we were told by a local. We went there for coffee in the afternoon, liked the atmosphere & the service so we went back for dinner. (Good coffee by the way.) We had salads with chicken...More

While in Galveston, it was incredibly cold. We would walk the seawall then drop in someplace and warm up. Nicks was one of those great finds to have a beer, chat with the locals and fellow travelers. The burger I had was fabulous. We sat...More

I feel that the food at Nicks is nothing special, but definitely not bad. They usually have good deals for happy hour which makes it very affordable. Plus having a porch looking over the beach makes for a great view.

This is a great restaurant for eating and watching the waves come in from the Gulf. Our granddaughter was totally enthralled with watching the action by the seawall. The food is good and the wait staff friendly. Our party enjoyed gumbo, hamburgers, and salads. Everyone...More

Went here for lunch and the place wasn't that busy. A working friend joined us but it took so long to get our food that he ended up having to take it to go back to the office. Good food though.

The service was great but the food we were displeased with. The Po boy looked great but my shrimp and grits were awful as well as the appetizers. This place is not a family friendly place at all.More
