My wife and I really looked forward to going to Nick's. We had heard a lot about the restaurant during past visits to Laguna Beach, it was always crowded when we walked by and it looked like a fun place. I'm not sure if it was that we stopped at another restaurant for an appetizer before we went there or that the menu just didn't look that appetizing at the time but we were a bit disappointed. Since we didn't want a big meal we decided to order a sandwich. I wanted the Prime Rib sandwich but they were out I got the Ribeye Melt and my wife got the Blackened Fish sandwich. Both sandwiches were good but nothing to rave about. The ribeye was on the tough side and a bit rare. The fish was a better choice but again just good enough. I'll give Nick's another chance when we return and hopefully I have an experience where I can give it that 5 that everyone else seems to give it.

Enjoyed a very nice chicken dinner at Nick's. Normally we would not do this type of dinner out. Since everyone raved about it, we tried it and we were very glad we did. Perfect comfort dinner after walking on the beach and visiting lots of art museums. We will be back.

We loved Nick's. It's very popular and I can see why. Food and drinks were great. Service was wonderful. We both had salads and a side of bread and loved them. Some of the best food I've eaten here

Nicks was a complete experience. The mixed drinks were good, asparagus fries amazing. My sea bas was perfectly prepare and the cioppino good....the shrimp were a little over cooked. The place is small and may need reservations on a busy night, but we went on a Sunday mid day and were seated immediately.
