I have dined at Nick's a few times. The staff has always been attentive and knowledgeable. One of my favorites is the GRILLED STEAK HOUSE SALAD: sliced ribeye - mixed greens - warm potato salad croutons - roasted bell pepper pepper
mustard bacon vinaigrette.
I order my steak medium rare for this dish. This salad is hearty enough if you are hungry, a good composition of salad and protein with a scoop of potato salad nicely tucked away underneath. My friend, Tammy, likes the Housemade Veggie Burger. The Blackened Chicken + Noodle Salad is another one to try. Nick's can be a popular spot, so reservations. A good tip no matter what, especially if this is for a date. Ask to sit outside or in the back to watch the chef cook.
