“Poor management and waiters”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

Anyone thinking of eating at Nick's Boathouse don't do it. Went there the Saturday before Mother's Day. Food was good and serves was ok. Anyways a few days later we checked our bank statement and Nick's Boathouse charged us more then we were billed and more then the tip we added. When we called and asked Nick's about it. The manager said the receipt looked good and my husband did leave a larger tip then what he actually left. Knowing my husband didn't leave that large of a tip because the serves wasn't fantastic, he went in to verify the receipt. It wasn't my husbands signature. He should the manager his signature on his drivers listens and said it was a HONEST mistake. Seriously? A honest mistake? We were refunded the part of the tip we did not leave. And that was that. I feel people should be aware because chances are it has happened more then ones.

“Excellent seafood”
Reviewed 18 May 2014 via mobile

We rolled in after a baseball game, just before closing time. Weren't rushed. Food was excellent. Just the right spice. Service was good even though they were closing up. We'll be back, hopefully before closing next time.

“Tasty Food with a Great View”
Reviewed 16 May 2014 via mobile

After a long bout without good seafood, I managed to stop in Nick's Boathouse for an evening meal. I ordered to amberjack sandwich and was not disappointed. The fries and coleslaw that came with it were excellent as well. Very friendly and courteous staff, and prices were reasonable for dinner.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

We really enjoyed eating here.....the food was wonderful. My dad said it was the best crab cakes he's ever had....and my mom loved the shrimp and grits. The food and service were great. We sat outside and the view was just beautiful. Overlooking the bay you can watch sailboats come and go. Try it, you won't be disappointed.
