Description: Nick's indoor/outdoor Laguna Beach venue features Classic American comfort food, crave-able bar snacks, plus unique cocktails & an extensive wine list. Located in the heart of Laguna Beach, our intimate 80-seat restaurant features a chic bar and beautiful outdoor patio. Our décor highlights several artistic touches, from inlaid abalone and oyster-shell accents to artistic mosaic tile floors. The Exotic wood-trimmed booths and hand-blown glass lamps along with warm tones of brown, blue and sand complement the exposed brick walls. Our exhibition kitchen showcases the talents of our passionate culinary team. Nick’s Laguna Beach has become a favorite in Orange County to dine, drink and escape.

I stop by almost weekly in the late afternoon to be able to sit at the bar. The cocktails are consistently excellent and the food selections are great. My favorite combo is the single barrel Margarita with the Tuna Tartare.

After a long Heisler Park to Crescent Bay Wall we headed to Nicks for lunch. I ordered the Bistro Plate and it was the perfect light lunch. Staff was very friendly and it’s right across from the beach. Definitely recommend it.

Well, this was the best we found on our road trip, but it was still way below expectations for a $150 meal.
The starter was bland and way too big. Supermarket standard potato salad - be embarrassed!!
The main was insufficient.
We didn’t bother with deserts.
Nicks. We can’t blame you for America’s inability to cook, but you can be better. Starters need to be lighter and flavoursome.
You can use some seasoning in your cooking!
And for goodness sake, turn down that annoying boom boom music.
