“Poor ambiance”
Reviewed 25 December 2012

I really liked Papa NIck's when they were in the old Wendy's building. I went there after they moved. The ambiance was so bad that I never went back. I can't say as I've ever had that reaction or opinion about a restaurant. I don't eat there. I wouldn't know if they changed it since just after they moved or not. I hope you can read other, more current reviews.

“The food had no flavor”
Reviewed 24 September 2012

We ordered fettuccine alfredo with chicken and linguini with white clam sauce; both came with over-cooked pasta and were tasteless. The entrees included clam chowder, which included possibly one clam but was mostly potatoes and was quite pasty and tasteless. The Greek salad was mediocre and the dressing came in a ketchup type container. I did not eat the soup and had less than half of the pasta dish. I kept adding more Parmesan cheese for flavor but nothing helped and I gave up. This is the first time I can remember that my husband did not finish a meal. We would never return.
