High rating due to original like diner. Owner I believe is call d dad and every calls him that. Pancakes where large and blueberries are the way to go. Very old school here. Record album and pop culture art. Service is excellent and my omelet was western and a bit runny but potatoes were good. Just 3 choices on toast.... More

This was my first visit to Nick's Diner although I drove by many a time saying I need to stop in. I finally did and very pleasantly surprised. The diner's decor is like stepping back a few years in time with a added variety of local art displayed. Food was great. Had breakfast skillets and hey were delicious. Menu had... More

We went on a very busy Saturday morning, and the staff worked hard to seat us as soon as possible. Funky, fun decor "like eating in someone's rec room" per one in our party. Great, attentive waitress and plenty of breakfast choices. Omelettes were well-made and came with very freshly made home fries. Nothing pretentious and good prices. Obviously popular... More

Went here due to recommendations from trip advisor, what a great little diner!!!! Great omelet and toast, coffee was great too! Service was quick and friendly, would recommend highly instead of an overpriced hotel breakfast.

Delicious food and great service. We have gone to Nick's for breakfast both times we have been to Cleveland and both times it has been great! We have had the same server twice and she is very cute with funky hair. Service with a funky smile! Food was even better this second time we were there. Got a seat right... More

My husband discovered this place on our recent trip to Cleveland and I'm so glad he did. It's located in the historic Ohio City section of Cleveland, maybe a ten-minute drive out of downtown. Totally worth it! The food was ample and yummy, and the price is criminally low. The service was good not great, but just the sort of... More

Great value for breakfast. Staff is superb, gave me a bunch of sass - like being at home! Really good Kielbasa. Very comfortable, the "locals" don't turn and look to see who is coming through the door. Highly recommend & dated but very clean.

When they say $2.99, they mean it and it seemed like a $5.00 breakfast! The potatoes were dreamy...if you want to know their secret, you have to go in the kitchen and hug the cook. His name is Pops and for a hug he will tell you anything!!

The breakfast special of three eggs any style, three strips of bacon or sausage links, & home fries or grits and toast, all served with a smile, is only $2.99. It was really yummy! But the home fries could have been a bit crispier. Barrie - like the Manilow - was our server and she was friendly and effervescent. The... More
