  • The M/W/F deal for free appetizer with an adult beverage is a great way to save a few bucks for a seafood place.
  • Nice private room for small, private events -- great lunch during #techweek with
  • Start with the luxurious sherry-spiked lobster bisque, one of Nick's greatest hits. Tiny shrimp and bits of crab are swirled into richly concentrated broth, thick with cream and nutty flavor.
  • Lobster bisque and a nick's classic salad. Yum!
  • Try the white chocolate cheesecake - (via @Foodspotting)
  • Everything..the salad, shrimp, dessert
  • Do not get the raw oysters - they had no taste and were poorly shucked
  • Friendly bartenders
  • The new Nicks in the Merch Mart is really two restaurants in one: A formal dining room is sectioned off from the rest of the restaurant (the grill) with blue glass panels.
  • Tilapia and crab
  • Pretty decent crab cake sandwich, for Chicago.
  • Ambiance is wonderful. Service was fast. Love the drink special-buy a drink and get an appetizer for $2 bucks. The fresh fish is fabulous.
  • Delicious! Lobster bisque is one of the best I have had.
  • In and out in half an hour for lunch, quite impressive! Blackened has good heat.
  • Avoid. Food average at best. Waiters might be worst in Chicago. LONG delays.
  • Great bar bites menu after 4PM. Cheese Puffs are excellent and $2 for 5!
  • Try the bar menu and the buffalo shrimp flatbread
  • Visitors can sample the same scrumptious seafood dishes while winding down amid casual yet still pretty classy confines during lunch.
