Getting a little run down around the edges but still good food and great service. Busy place as it serves lots of tourists. We had lunch and enjoyed our meal.

The service was very good and a decent menu selection. The salads are large and fresh. They make a good Reuben sandwich.

I first started going to Nicely's when I was about 5, so this was more of a place to go for a nostalgic revisit. I was amazed that almost all guests were international guests (or at least their native language was other than English). Some...More
