Nick's pounds of beer, fried pork tenderloin sandwich, and Stromboli are classics. My husband (a frequent denizen of Nick's in his college days) and I stopped by for dinner Sunday evening and it felt like nothing had changed in 40 years. A great IU hangout...More

We came into Nick's spontaneously with a very large group of over 50 people. The manager quickly arranged one of the side rooms for us and the wait staff did a great job keeping up with our demand.

Don't go here unless you like being around college students. It's a short walk from the campus, but the good food and other attractions have made it a campus favorite for years.

Cool atmosphere, an IU landmark. Had the stromboli and it was very good, and large portion. Cold beer and good service.

Nicks' has been a Bloomington landmark for many years. There has even been a book written about it! If you can't get to the game this is THE place to watch it, just a couple of blocks off IU campus and Sample Gates. Pictures of...More

On a visit to IU, we were told we had to stop by Nick's, and it was well worth it! The food was great, especially the bucket of fries we ordered (yet still didn't finish!) The environment adds to the unique dining experience, and there...More
