Again we had a great lunch at Chef Andre's Nick's Lobster House in Flatbush/Mill Basin. It our all the time guarantee seafood restaurant for the last 6 years. What a great find. It was a delightful day so we opted to eat on the wonderful...back open deck that is partially covered buy a decorative tarp. Air is being circulated with also outside fans. We alway start with one of the restaurants flavorful drinks. My wife likes their Ice Tea and my always Hurricane Nick's tropical drink. Something like a Blue Hawaii. As always you are delightfully be greeted and taken to you table. There one of Chef's waiters/waitress will take you drink order and bring you a bread basket with butter. After looking at their very interesting menu we gave our order. We have been there many, many times so we have tried a lot of items. All good. We decided today to have their Caesar Salad to share, a order of baked clams and both their Salmon plate accompanied with roasted potatoes and the seasonal veg. We enjoyed the meal and many other came during our stay to enjoy both outside and inside if you wish. Oh yes, many lobsters we saw going to tables. Beside that we saw pastas with shrimp scampi and also chopped clams. Granted the food is made to order for you so you will have to wait till they bring it to you. But again, enjoy your app's, drink and the beautiful scenery of the Bay. We opted out, but they do have hot drinks and also desserts. Pls take the opportunity to try Nick's and you will want to return year round. Mangia!More

Well we had another delightful meal at Nick’s. This time we brought three friends for the first time and at the end of the meal, they said they would return. We were seated on time since C19 you need to make reservations we knew we...had to do. We all enjoyed drinks from Nick’s Bar Mixologist. I enjoyed the Nick’s Hurricane, which I find very refreshing. Order a large one that will last the meal. As always, I enjoy the Baked Clams. The Fried Calamari is also very tasty with House Sauce. Many other App’s to choose from. They also have Raw Bar selections. In addition, their Manhattan Clam Chowder is one of their soups. We enjoyed for the table their Mixed Season w Balsamic Dressing w Shallots. Salads change with the seasons. Another is their Caesar. I had the Twin Lobster Tails, which comes with Roasted Potatoes & Veg’s. My wife had Fish & Chips. One friend had Halibut Oreganata, Surf & Turf Sandwich and a Whole Branzino. All comes with Roasted Potatoes and Veg’s….. Of course, there are many other entrees to experience with many visits to Nick’s. Of course, Nick’s Lobster House is known for what else….LOBSTERS. You can have them anyway you wish. They are priced by Market Price. BTW…… If you wish, Nick’s also has a Fish Market display if you would like to take home fresh fish. If there is room, you can have a Hot Drink and view the selections of desserts. Please give Nick’s a try and you will know why many return time after time to enjoy their meals. During nice weather they a very large outdoor deck to enjoy your meals in you wish not to dine inside. Enjoying Nick’s for the last 6 years we will be returning for more great food. Chef Andre is very proud of his food and his staff that serves you. One thing I must share is, the food will take time to be cooked since it is being made to your order fresh. So enjoy a drink and the scenery to past the time. Bon Appetite!More

On this past Thursday my wife treated to a Birthday Lunch at our Favorite Seafood Restaurant Nick's. We had a wonderful day to enjoy the Open Deck on the outside of the Main Restaurant building. We are sorry we missed Chef Dimitri and his visit...to our table each time we dine at Nick's. He puts such care and concern into the preparation of the food as well as his special staff. I always wanted to try one of the Special Bar selection and enjoy their Hurricane Nick's. It was so refreshing. We always want to pick our favorite selections but do want to try something new also. We had our favorite doz. of Baked Clams so juicy and full made just right. I like to take the table bread and sob up the juices. We do like their House Salad but we also and as a treat for the lunch we selected their Caesar Salad made just right. So plentiful, we took the rest home. I was in the mood for lobster but not for the whole thing, so I selected the Traditional Lobster Roll and enjoyed it! My Dear Wife likes their Salmon Plate with accompanying vegetables. All the food was so good. Since we didn't want to ruin our meal, we opted out of dessert at this time. But we always do enjoy a great hot cup and one of their desserts. We have been coming to Nick's for approx. 5 years and look forward to each time we go. We have NEVER been disappointed with our meals and sometimes even take some thing extra home or stop to take out for an even meal. Please give Nick's a try and you will not be disappointed with your meal and their menu. Your know the place and food is great when the staff and their service reflects the Chef's compassion.More

Amazing service Two years (2018) ago I celebrated my birthday there. It was great, food was delicious, waiters were kind and polite and atmosphere was so friendly. Really loved this place. This time (2020) I ordered food delivery, I called them to place an order...and they were very punctual with the delivery. They informed and confirmed every step of the process. It was as expected , wonderful, the plates were pretty big, food was amazing, I and my friends got full not even finishing. Very satisfied 👏More

Have been going to Nicks for the past few year for dinner with our family of 5. Seafood is always fresh, and the service always very good. This review however is for their Mothers day experience. Due to the pandemic we were not able to...dine onsite, and took advantage of take out. A little nervous about ordering, especially seafood to go, but this was absolutely phenomenal. The lobster bisque soup was amazing, fried calamar super fresh, and the grilled pulpo i decided not to share (it was mothers day lol) it was that good. the surf and turf was the perfect dinner and almond cake deserts i also decided not to share. PS, they also had the most beautiful hydrangeas and calla lillies for sale and at super good pricing.More

When we want a Great Seafood Meal we always head to Nick's Lobster House in Marine Park. We know we will get quality in both ingredients and service. We returned once again for a great lunch. Yes, the restaurant was filled and continued to fill...while we were there. Got a great table by the window with the view of Mill Basin Waterway. The bar serves great drinks and cocktails. Look at the blackboard to see the daily specials. We enjoyed their Caesar Salad as a change with a wonderful original dressing. The main entrees were the Grill Salmon w seasoned rice and mixed sauteed vegetables. And also Angel Hair Pasta with White Clam Sauce. And we had space for dessert and hot beverage. You are never rushed to leave and enjoy our continued company. Being regulars, we are lucky to have the staff always come over to the table to see that all is going well. And if he is available, Chef Dimitri will visit your table to reassure you of your visit and experience. Please give Nick's a try and if I can add, come empty and ready to enjoy a delightful meal to remember. Lobsters, Clams, Oysters, Seafood and even Steaks available, enjoy!More

I loved my dinner!!! We went on a Friday night to celebrate my father’s birthday and couldn’t have been more pleased. The food was delicious and the portion sizes were great. Shout out to the bartender that night making all of our drinks absolutely without...a doubt perfect. I may have to come back just for the drinks one night. The service was excellent on all ends. The chef came out multiple times to make sure everyone was enjoying their food throughout the restaurant and so did the manager when she heard we were celebrating a birthday. It exceeded my expectations for sure. Can not wait to come back.More

Nick's Lobster House has been around since 1955 and still going strong. Always greeted at the front door like family. We always get a great table to view Mill Basin Waterway. They take your drink order as soon as you are seated. At this time...there is a New Autumn/Winter Menu which has some of the Oldies Dishes that are traditional and some New Dishes that are great. Most of the guests that visit seeing other table tops like the Lobster, Mussels, Crab Legs and the Great Soup/Chowder. But there are many other items on the Menu. We today like Raw Clams Dish, NE Clam Chowders, Green Salad w new Honey Shallot Dressing, Halibut Dish, Twin Lobster Tails w White Scampi Sauce with Baked Clams before hand. They do have an extensive Bar/Beer/Cocktail Menu. Every meal can be ended with a good cup of coffee. The Desserts unfortunately is commercial but very tasty to enjoy. Please give it a try and enjoy good time to eat and drink and enjoy a table of good company..More
