Despite what 3 recent reviews indicate, this restaurant is closed. We decided to try Nicks for lunch and found this location under construction and closed. No indication on their website that this location was closed.

Atmosphere, service & food was excellent. We walked in off the street, made reservation, had a drink and had a table within 15 minutes. I had 2 lbs of ribs that were not the best I've ever had but among of the best.

We got on line to order our food and found a table by the window. Our food arrived right away and it was soooooo good. I had the pulled pork sandwich and my daughter had mac and cheese with chicken nuggets. Loved it.
