There’s something for everyone at Nick’s. For those folks who enjoy a lighter fare, Nick’s Signature salads fit the bill. Choose from the Grilled or Cajun Chicken salad or the Fried Green Tomato salad. There’s also their Greek Salad and the Salad of the Day Platter, plus you can enjoy a cup of one of their delicious soups and half a sandwich.
Nick’s hearty lunch specials are always a hit. Choose from seafood including flounder, trout or clam strips, Pastas including Fettuccini Alfredo or Pasta Pomadora. There are so many wonderful sandwiches that I always struggle to make up my mind. Which do I prefer-the Pot Roast sandwich, the Reuben, the Bacon Cheeseburger, the Gyro or the Pita or Panini of the day? Sometimes I just close my eyes and choose one, then plan to come back soon for another of my favorites.
Dinner at Nick’s is truly a memorable experience. Have you tried their Rack of Lamb? You should. Comments like “Out of this World,” or “Wow! Best I’ve had anywhere” are just two of the comments from recent customers. Steak lovers rave about the Sterling Silver Beef that they find at Nick’s. Yes, they have seafood, too, including salmon, grouper, and mahi mahi plus a new fish called “trigger fish.” Owner Dori Moschoris claims that trigger fish is her favorite fish. The dinner menu also includes customer favorites like Veal Picatta, Mountain Trout, Duckling, Frog Legs, Prime Rib, and Steak Au Poivre. Accompanied by your favorite soup or salad and a vegetable, you’ve got a meal to remember.
Be sure to leave room for one of Patti’s homemade desserts. Select a piece of Key Lime pie, coconut crème pie, peanut butter pie, buttermilk pie or a slice of the Chocolate Ghirardelli Chip Mousse cake along with a cup of piping hot coffee and you have the perfect ending to a delectable meal.
