Stopped for lunch with family after a long flight from the East Coast....Stormy day but all enjoyed the food and view. Service was good, fish tacos / fish and chips were very good and prices not too crazy for the area. Recommended for first stop if you have family new to the west coast and traveling into SFO - about... More

Nick's is located between 2 bigger Hotels on the water front. It is a popular place and has some excellent food. Try the Crab Sandwich, it is really good. Think about sharing it maybe, because the portions are really big. That goes for other dishes too. We ended up ordering appetizer as the main dish. We were there a few... More

Even if Nick's didn't have the stellar views of beach and ocean, the food itself makes this my favorite dining destination when in Pacifica. Favorites on the menu are prime rib, raviolis or Surf 'n Turf. I also enjoy the fish tacos, with savory seasoning and generous portions, including two large corn tortilla tacos filled to overflowing, and rice on... More

Stopped on our drive along the coastline. It was a bit cold and rainy but even then you could tell the view was awesome! Had delicious scallops and friendly service.

Spent several nights in Pacifica for Valentine's Day. Went to Nicks for dinner and had a fantastic meal. This place is great for a meal or to sit at the bar and have a few drinks. Gaze out the windows to watch the ocean or catch a beautiful sunset.

Great place to watch the sunset on the Pacific and enjoy a delicious meal and some great wine. We stumbled upon this place while staying at the HI Express next door.

Nicks is a great place to eat, dance and socialize. They provide a family environment as well as a place to socialize and dance for just the adult crowd.

Friendly restaurant right on the Pacific ocean with good, honest food at affordable prices. The clams were sensational. Sometimes there has been impromptu dancing - but only at the weekends I think!

I've been coming to this restaurant for over 30 years. The view of the crashing surf through the giant windows is spectacular even after dark. There is a full bar, live music and dancing. And then there's the menu. It has all the great fish dishes along with many Italian style dishes. It's even good for a late breakfast or... More
