We had the toasted ravioli and a pizza..both were excellent. The service was great and I have absolutely no complaints. Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone!

Seafood is the freshest you can get anywhere around here. Marsala dishes are amazing. Each dish has it's own unique twist to make it better than expected. Service is always friendly and they really make you feel like family when you're there.

Anything I have colleagues in town on business, I bring them to Nikos. The food and atmosphere are great. I just hope that now that Niko has passed, the food will continue to be spot on.

First the good - The staff was attentive, friendly and courteous. The menu was a bit limited. I selected the chicken parmigiana which was tasty. My complaints are : the size of my one,single chicken breast for the parm was miniscule, the place is noisy, and, overall, I think the prices are way too high by about $2-$4.. Maybe the... More

I will start out saying I ate lunch there last week the Carbonara was excellent and so was the service as well.. I went back tonight and was very disappointed. The service was lackluster at best. There was only one other table occupied when I came in. My dinner companion came in shortly afterward. When I was seated 2 menus... More

Niko's consistently provides exceptional service. The staff is friendly and really knows the menu. They care deeply that you have a wonderful experience and check on you throughout the menu. Make no mistake, this is a true family restaurant - they are independently owned and care that each guest feels cared for and satisfied. The menu has fewer choices than... More

The food was horrible, I would not feed this to my dog. I spent over thirty dollars and the only thing I ate was the salad. It also left a lot to be desired.

Have enjoyed date night with the wife several times at Nikos. The food is always delicious. I always enjoy their outstanding cuts of steak. My wife has tried several different pasta dishes and never left less than satisfied. We ALWAYS get a canoli---they are to die for. The bartender makes a homemade sangria that is delicious and always has a... More

My husband and I have been going to Niko's for years and it is our favorite restaurant in Owensboro. Although it is casual if you go there dressed up for a special occasion you will always feel in place. They have the best steak in town and all their food is homemade. I promise you will not be sorry.

Thank Saloude1
