This restaurant has a nice location sitting right on the water. The food was pretty good, but it was more about location. There is a outside eating area that overlooks the water. The service was friendly and helpful. Prices are moderate, approx. $80 for a family of five.

Ordered a side of slaw that tasted awful. Told server. Her response,"yeah, we've had complaints". Yet, they served it anyway. Ordered country fried steak (probably not best in a seafood restauran)t. Steak tasted "old" is best description I can give. Side of corn on cob was overcooked, probably from being in water too long or "nuked"! No refill offed on soft drink. Not going back - use location as excuse for less than mediocre fare!

Stopped in for an early dinner. Great view of the bay from the outside patio. The service was above average, but we were the servers only table. The food was great.

The whole family was looking for some fresh fish after several days of deep- fried dining. Nick's delivered. The grilled snapper was cooked perfectly and flavored well. The bisque was very good and the grits were tasty. We also enjoyed a variety of cocktails. I don't recommend the greens -- the stem is not removed from the collards, so the texture is wrong. Mac and cheese was disappointing as well. Overall very tasty and nice to see the gulf from the patio. Also walked to the baseball stadium.

We came with a group of 14. It wasn't our first choice but they had last minute seating for our large group - on a Tuesday. Nothing was bad but nothing stood out. My mixed drinks tasted watered down and almost certainly not the brand of alcohol I ordered. I had a Marine Amberjack and Shrimp plate which was acceptable but not superior. The service was the best part as the waitress was friendly. She was very busy despite the restaurant being about 1/4 empty. I would try some other places first before visiting again.
