Great food, nice servers. My wife loves the ribs, and I love the Cobb Salad - no one has it like Nikolas :)

The staff accommodated our party of 10 quickly. They willingly modified the menu offerings to accommodate my vegan diet. The service was very good with no interruption to our conversations.

My husband birthday dinner was last night and the barbecue chicken is awesome. Lightly coated with sauce is excellent. We had a julienne salad and greens as our sides and that made the meal even better.
