We were advised to visit Nichols West, we are so glad we did! Please make reservations, we did not, but were graciously seated at the bar. The menu is appealing and our meals were absolutely delicious. The staff is hospitable and friendly. I'd say this is one of the best restaurants in AZ.

We heard about this place from the starter down at Wickenberg Ranch. So, we tried it. It was great. My wife has the omelet nd Caesar combination. I had the Philly Cheesesteak. They were both excellent. The fries were among the best I've ever had. It doesn't look like much from the outside but don't mistake this for a greasy... More

Tiny little place that thinks their food it the best in the world, with the prices to prove it. The service is very slow, but since they are the ONLY place in Congress to get dinner, drive the extra 10 miles to Wickenburg.

A little gem in the middle of nowhere. Food and service were wonderful. There is a full bar and a creative menu served up in a very quaint and cute setting. I would consider this a destination restaurant not just a place to stop when passing through. We will be back for sure.

Doesn't look like much from the outside but inside, great food. The zucchini chips, French onion soup for starters were delicious. Shrimp and scallops with pasta for entrée came with either Cesar salad or mixed green salad, very tasty. The pasta was well seasoned and not over cooked. The house Merlot was good too. Service was friendly and good. We... More

Best food in the west - including Phoenix or snooty Scottsdale! We've been there many times & recommend them to friends!

Sorry for the title. I couldn't resist. Nichols West is owned and managed by Simon, an Englishman who formerly had a very successful restaurant in the Hamptons on Long Island. I'm not sure what brought him to the desert of Arizona but I'm certain glad he maid the trek. The menu is eclectic and varied. Friday, Saturday and Sunday if... More
