Lighthouse seafood platter was very good. Nice lobster, excellent scallops and shrimp, and delicious oysters Rockefeller. Baked shrimp with crab stuffing was ok, but not crazy about the seasoning in the stuffing. Sweet potato fries with cinnamon. Collard greens were a bit spicy, rice was just ok. Eat outside on the deck.

Wife and I were there recently. A lone pelican circled and dove for his meal. They are so graceful in the air and water. My wife had shrimp and grits. She really enjoyed watching the Pelican - her meal not so much. She didn't even like the grits. I had gumbo (not a fond memory) and Chicken Marsala. I should have known better than to order chicken at a restaurant featuring sea food. The entrée was not good but fortunately the portion was small. I think we were there when Nick's just had a bad evening in the kitchen.

We went to Nick's Boathouse on Saturday evening. We didn't have to wait long to sit outside but it was still early..around 5:30pm. We were greeted by a performer singing great oldies and doing an impressive job. We all ordered different items but all were excellent. I had the shrimp and crab and it was fresh and flavorful. My husband enjoyed his amberjack and shrimp as well. The only drawback was the waiter was a little slow and forgetful maybe due to the increasing amount of patrons. The view, music, and food were truly enjoyable and I would definitely eat there again.

Our family of 4 was in and out of the restaurant in 50 minutes! On a Saturday evening. We enjoyed the lobster topped grouper and the crab/shrimp pasta. Our kids enjoyed the frisbeelates from their meals too. Great fast service that is easy to recommend.
