This is a nice relaxing place for dinner after a busy day of sightseeing. Cozy atmosphere, very attentive and friendly wait staff, good food.

We ate lunch at Nick's on my last day there with my niece and I had the Fettucine with Smoked Salmon and Asparagus and it was DELICIOUS!! I plan on making the dish for my husband who loves smoked salmon. The tables are a bit cramped and the seats probably need replacing, but the waitstaff were awesome and the price was right.

My husband and I were in Fisherman's Wharf for lunch today and were disappointed by Nick's Lighthouse. Not only were the tables cramped, the bathrooms were gross and $15.00 for a crab salad sandwich and fries was pretty steep, even for a touristy place. It tasted like tunafish with too much mayo. Overall, I wouldn't go back and didn't find it to be a very authentic San Francisco dining experience.

What can I say about Fisherman's Wharf that hasn't already been said? It's a fun place to go for tourists but locals usually steer clear of it for obvious reasons. I had company in town, however, and they wanted to do the wharf so off we went. I have to admit that I had never set foot in Nick's until last night. I have to say that I actually thought the atmosphere was pretty cool and very much a blast from the past. It is a small restaurant and the seating is pretty cramped but what the heck--sometimes that can be a good thing on a Saturday night. I do have to say, however, that the seat we were sitting on left something to be desired and wasn't at all comfortable, unfortunately for us. (This restaurant isn't at all good for normal to larger sized people so beware.) The decor is funky and the lighting is just right which always adds so much to the atmosphere. My friends ordered pasta and fish and enjoyed their orders. I ordered a Shrimp Louie and was generally satisfied with my salad but would have liked the traditional hard-boiled egg to have accompanied it and the beets were a little puny. The dressing was very good which is always important on a Louie salad. As for the service, it was good and the waitstaff were friendly. The prices are actually reasonable for Fisherman's Wharf which was surprising. As far as whether I would return...well, although it was a fun experience, most of our party was uncomfortable in the small booth where we were seated so for that reason alone I probably won't go back. I would, however, recommend it to people but would warn them that the seating is, well, let's just say cozy and leave it at that. It's still an interesting spot.

Nick's Lighthouse offers the best the primo Bloody Mary I have ever had...compliments the clam chowder in a sourdough bowl quite well...
