A friend suggested we have lunch in this "iconic" restaurant and it was a spectacular recommendation. We had the signature crab sandwich and perhaps the best fish and chips served anywhere. This is a must go to place if you are in the area. I understand why it has stayed in business since 1927.

The place is cozy and warm. Food is good like oysters and pasta. Turkey and avocado sandwich yummy. There is luve music at night. The view of the beach is breathtaking.

Had breakfast at Nick's and it was out of this world. Even though the place was packed service was great and atmosphere was as well. Everyone in our party had different items and all were delicious.

I have visited here twice by myself, so I eat and have a couple of cold ones at the bar. The food is good and you get a fair amount, you will not be hungry when you leave. Staff at the bar is attentive and fun. Always a lot of jokes with the locals.

This place had an awesome breakfast for a very decent price. Basic breakfast fare that won't break your budget. Sour dough toast was fresh and eggs over easy got me on my way.

What a view ! Great place to get away from the bustle of the City (SF), they have some easy hiking and a nice little secluded beach on the site. Oh yeah - the food ? Give the Burger a shot, it won't disappoint. The seafood is pretty darn good too! Hint- split a burger, it will be plenty, esp.... More

We met with a large group of friends for a birthday dinner. The service was excellent. The dinner was great and everyone was served at the same time! Nice music and atmosphere. We will be back
