We typically travel to Hilton Head three to four times a year and Nick's has become one of our favorite restaurants on the island. When we first walked in during this visit, we were immediately struck by the redesign of the interior. Although Pittsburgh sports memorabilia has a major focus (we are Cincinnati fans so somewhat hard for us :-)) the recent changes made to the interior have upgraded the restaurant immensely.
For this trip, we had a very large party and were able to make reservations which is a definite bonus. We were seated in a semi-private room located off the main dining room which was perfect for our large family.
Our server immediately came and took our drink orders keeping separate checks for the five different families. The drink special was amazing and our drinks were delivered quickly. Our server went over the specials for the night and we placed our order. While waiting for our food, the server was attentive and a glass never went empty. Throughout the evening other servers never passed our table without brining a drink refill or engaging the kids in our party in light hearted fun!
After a brief wait, our food was all delivered simultaneously and directly to the individual that ordered (I always hate when servers stand at the head of the table yelling out dishes while family members sheepishly have to raise their hand.) Various family members got a wide variety of dishes and all looked delicious. I got the ribs and shrimp and my husband got a Jack Daniels Steak, both were outstanding.
One member of our family got the all you can eat crab legs and the steaming orders just kept coming. Needless to say it looked delicious and he definitely got his money's worth.
With a party as large as ours we typically expect there to be flaws in service or food preparation or checks but we did not have any concerns at Nick's. Overall it was our best meal on the island! When we return later this summer, it will be at the top of our list for their outstanding food and service (a rarity on the island!)
