Our extended family has been going to Nick's for years as it's location is sort of a central rendevous point for the family and their capable of holding very large tables of folks. It's a throw the peanuts on the floor type of place. Buy lots of pitchers of beer and order multiple pizzas. The pizza is consistently good (perhaps... More

Dinner here with grandkids. Pizza and appetizers were great, Prices very reasonable for larger group. Service was a little slow even though they weren't that busy.

All I have to say is try their Mexican pizza is one of the best and this is the only place where I can find it locally. Give it a try if you enjoy thin crust pizza.

I don't get here too often because it's over an hour drive from home, but it's one of my five favorite pizza parlors. Nick's is a friendly,casual place where you throw your peanut shells on the floor. They specialize in thin crust pizza with a good cheese/sauce/crust ratio. My pizza of choice is sausage; my wife goes for the mushroom.... More

Did takeout and their thin crust pizza is very good. Prices are a little high, but their food is always good and a fair value.

Nick's has a great family atmosphere. The staff is friendly and really meets the needs of the customer. I feel Pizza is one of the better entrees. Yet, Nick's Pizza has more on its menu. Something for every taste. I wholeheartedly recommend Nick's Pizza & Pub. My friends and I visit Nick's Pizza a couple of times a month.

Visited here with a larger group. The server was very nice, as she had to deal with multiple families and multiple bills. With kids on one end and parents on the other I am sure it was fun to try and keep it organized. As a lover of cheese and bread, their garlic cheese bread was awesome. A piece of... More

We went back to Nicks for Pizza. Unfortunately we had to wait a good 45 minutes for our pizzas the waitress apologized twice and then the manager came out with a complimentary pizza and we were told he went back himself and made our pizzas. The waitress then took both of our pizzas off our bill. NOW that is good... More

Nick's has great and relaxed atmosphere, very friendly staff, and excellent food - a good time guaranteed! Free peanuts at every table (and front waiting area) are a great plus. We also love the incredible timber interior!

Nick's pizza by far is delicious and full of flavor. I love their pizza sauce. Food is always served hot and on time.
