While the noise level inside the restaurant was loud and energetic. Our group was happier sitting on the patio where we could easily converse and enjoy the wonderful food offerings including the fried chicken that was amazing.

Had some brunch, can be very crowded for brunch on Saturday and sunday. We sat at the bar to avoid waiting for a table. But was very good

We were there Monday afternoon, had the sea bass with mashed potatoes and sautéed spinach... everything was delicious and our server was very attentive. They have very good wines. Always love coming to Nick's.
