It was not the most auspicious start - a rather grumpy host who did not make us feel very welcome - but once we settled in the wait staff were nice and very helpful. It was happy hour and they ensured that we got the best deal on drinks. The food was fairly average (we had tilapia and shrimp) but the view was good.

I enjoyed the Shrimp and Grits at this restaurant. You can sit outside here and it is very pleasant. Our server was very good but the hostess was not friendly. I wouldn't recommend sitting inside.

Nice place and atmosphere on the open air patio. The wait staff and manager were very friendly and happy hour prices were great! My only complaint would be with their lump crab cake appetizer. Coming from up north and living in Maryland they need to let the crabmeat stand alone. Having just the lemon butter and tomatoes would have been great - the added onion straws and capers were a little too much.

The service was only slightly better than the not fresh seafood. Mahi. Blah. Cajun Snapper creole rice . Garbage. Wife's Shrimp Alfredo out of a can with precooked shrimp from a dirty grill. $200 of tastelessness. On a.positive note Hostesses were great.

My wife and I love this place. Happy hour 3 to 7 with fantastic prices on drinks and appetizers. The fish tacos and the burgers are fabulous. Nicks is always a frequent stop when we vacation in Galveston
