Highly recommended for a crab feast on the dock at sunset. The indoor restaurant is noisy and the menu is otherwise uninspired, but adequate for a typical seafood restaurant. Nick's is always jumping, however, and very popular.

I LOVE Nick's Fish House! Their food is amazing - hands down one of the best places for seafood. Their apps, entrees and drinks are awesome. I've had their crab balls before, which is the perfect appetizer without filling you up before the entree. Typically, for an entree, I always get the crab grilled cheese sandwich and it is delicious!... More

Dinner at Nick's , service was great as usual with an energetic and young crew. I had the cream of crab soup, rich and full of limp meat followed up with the crab cake platter. Two nice size crab cakes again mainly lump meat and delicious. The fries were very good also but I just couldn't finish them after those... More

We went on a beautiful day and sat on the deck by the water. We could see the bridge and the boats. The food was good, not cheap. Due to the cost, I would only do this on a special occasion. I had family visiting from Arizona and wanted them to enjoy the water and Maryland Crabs. The lobster mac... More

Saturday lunch on a cold dreary day but the heaters were on so even sitting in the outdoor covered area was fine. The seafood Cobb salad could easily have been shared. It included egg crab shrimp tomatoes cucumber and a delicious old bay ranch dressing. The cream of crab soup was fabulous. Lobster roll was fully stuffed. All great!

You can find a thing you won't like on this menu. I've had the boiled shrimp, crab cakes and pretzel , oysters etc all of it was excellent . Try the orange crush if you are not familiar with that sweet drink. This is a great spot not to be missed !

My daughter and I had lunch at Nicks today and arrived just before the lunch crowd. Which is right around noon. We were asked if we wanted to sit outside or inside and we chose outside. It was a lovely day and the weather was nice so it was a good choice. I had wanted to order crabs, the kind... More

Came here on a beautiful spring Friday night, and it did not disappoint. We went early to grab a bite before meeting our friends at the bar. Around 6:15pm, there was a huge crowd BUT to be seated inside was instant, but if you wanted to sit outside, it was an hour and half wait. We decided to eat inside!... More

Are here before my flight out of the city. Service was fast. I ate the friend shrimp with fries. Not a big seafood eater but tried the crab pretzel.

Let me say this. I never ever ever had soup that was sooooo oops delicious. My husband and I had the cream crab soup. Yes fresh crab meat, with some soft shells, yes I said fresh. The soup was thick creamy and so delicious. The crab balls were good. Now the mussel with Diablo sauce was banging! Oh my mussels... More
