Food was excellent along with the service. Our server, Leila, was attentive and took great care of any and all of our needs. We had reservations at 7:00 PM and were seated immediately. One thing you need to be cautious of is the parking. Give yourself plenty of time and arrive early.

We used to love going to Nick’s for breakfast, however the last two times we have gone , our favorites keep disappearing from the menu. The Savory Waffle Benedict was taken off the menu and then the Brûlée Oatmeal. The oatmeal , which has a carmalized sugar and fruit topping, and was delicious, was replaced by oatmeal with quinoa. The menu items remaining are good, when looking forward to something, we were born mined when it happened twice in a row.

Honestly, Nicks on 2nd is the absolute best. Service is always amazing and quality of EVERYTHING is spectacular. Anytime a server walks by you are accommodated with refills, etc. Don’t spend your money any place else.

I found this location on open table, I travel to Long Beach 3 or 4 times a year and wanted something away from downtown.
I can not believe I had not found this place over the years, absolutely PERFECTION.

From the moment i walked in until my last bite this was simply awesome.
Must haves the deviled eggs and bistro salad, I assure you simply based on these items the entrees all have to be crazy good. I had the Rib Eye sandwich which the host suggested...his suggestion was spot on.
Do yourself a favor and eat at Nicks on 2nd

They sat us on their outdoor patio that had plastic surroundings with a 10 inch gap and it was FREEZING! The value for the Salad at $23, was NOT good. It was a steak salad that had 4 tiny slices of steak and greens on top of a mound of potato salad.

Casual but upscale. Went here with a group for breakfast / brunch. Good selection of menu items including some vegan options. Ingredients are fresh and everything was well prepared. El Jefe burrito is big enough for two, and if you like bacon, you have to try Nick's; it's awesome! I also recommend the potato cake; delicious. Very busy on weekends, so reservations are highly recommended.

Had the Thai salad, which was just okay. The grilled chicken that accompanied the plate was bland.

In the past I have enjoyed the food at dinner and also eating outside is much quieter.

I chose to book at Nick's to have lunch with a friend who was in Long Beach for business.
I was impressed with their menu while searching on Open Table.
The service was amazing. They took special care to make sure they could accommodate my Gluten Allergy.
The chef came by our table to reassure me that he was personally taking care of my order.
I truly appreciated this attention to detail.

I would highly recommend Nick's for any occasion, and I especially appreciated that the noise level was just perfect. We weren't yelling at each other from across the table. ;-)

Give Nick's a try, you will not be disappointed, plus, it's in a Great Location! Easy parking!!
