Everything is made from scratch! Their happy hour is legit! $4 margaritas and $6 pitchers! Service was excellent as well....More

The best club sandwich I’ve ever had and the accompanying garlic mayo sauce is to die for!! The fries are super as well. Sit outside on a beautiful day and watch the Gulf.

Nice pool and bar along the sea wall. Stopped in as needed a break from beach. Slipped into pool and enjoyed pitchers of well priced beer.

Had an unbelievably horrible experience at Nick's on the 4th of July this year. I live in Galveston where there’s an annual 4th of July fireworks display launched from the jetty near Gaido’s/Nick’s. Last year they charged $10/car to park in their adjacent parking lot...More
