This is our first visit to banner elk and we asked locals where they go for wings . They recommended Nick's. We ordered the wings and fries . The wings were average and fries were good . We had blue cheese and ranch dressing for dipping. Both of the dressings were watered down and the celery was something they should have thrown away. Service was good and friendly .

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that you did not think our wings are great. Most people do. Our Blue cheese dressing comes directly from Sysco, and we just portion it out, and add nothing to it. We do make our Ranch dressing according to the instructions given by Hidden Valley. We also cut up celery sticks everyday, because we go through so many of them. I apologize that you did not enjoy your wings, and wish you had of asked for a manager, so we could have made you happy on the spot. Thank you for trying us, and give us another chance when you are back in our beautiful mountains. Vicki T

We had a nice lunch-blackened wild salmon sandwich and tuna cheese bagel, both with fries and less than $10 each. One server working the whole dining room inside and out, so service a got slow, but we had nowhere to rush to, so it was not a problem. We'd return again.

Nicks is a pub-restaurant in Tynecastle, near Banner Elk. We enjoyed wings and sandwiches there, plus some good beer, while seated outdoors. The food was good, and the service was adequate, though I think our server got stuck with a large group and that slowed her down. Met some friendly folks on the outdoor patio and enjoyed some good conversation with our meal.

there was not a whole lot to say - the service was okay, though one of our party did not get what he ordered

Walked in and sat ourselves at a booth in the bar. After 10 min of no one coming to take a drink order I walked up to the bar and asked who was waiting on our table. 10 min later a waitress came to take our order. We ordered wings that seemed they were barely warm. Ordered 2 bacon cheeseburgers one med an one medium well. Mine was medium well and came out medium rare . If the waitress would have been going off the two bite rule to check back she would have caught this but it was a good 15-20 min before she came back and my husband was already done with his food. The waitress seemed to not have a section but tables on both sides of restaurant . The question is WHERE is the MANAGEMENT here? She did take the food off my bill but in a good restaurant the manager comes over. I have worked in and managed in restaurants for over 20 years and this was one of the worst experiences I've ever had. If your coming to drink your prob ok.
