There are not a lot of good restaurants in the Mill Basin area. There are a few, but you basically have to drive 20-30 minutes for a variety of restaurants. Nicks is only 10 mins. From Mill Basin. It has a nice variety of seafood....More

This place has a deck for outdoor seating. The seafood is pretty good, but can be a little pricy. We had lobster and crab cakes and both were pretty tasty.

Great seafood with an incredible view - you would never know you were in Brooklyn, near a mall (Kings Plaza). We had a mussels appetizer, seafood paella risotto, seafood pasta, and lobster roll (hot and cold) - everything was wonderful. The location is gorgeous, on...More

Nick was a local fisherman, who docked his boat right here on Flatbush Avenue in 1955. Within a few years people would stop to buy fresh Lobsters and seafood right from the boat. Through the years the idea has grown to a successful restaurant, still in the family. With pride in the past we focus on the future. Our goal is to provide our guests with excellent service in a fun, casual atmosphere to enjoy the freshest Lobsters, seafood and ingredients around. We work with many local suppliers and aim to continuously improve Nick's Lobster House for another 60 Years.
