The food was great, the service was great. However it was EXTREMELY loud. The bars were not as loud and it was St Patty's day. There was a group so loud, with shrieking women, that we could not hear each other speak, which was very sad. We could not even hear the server, who in turn could not hear us. Once they left it was much better, but it was like an echo chamber - a very loud setting. Maybe ridiculously loud groups should be asked politely to keep it down- knowing that the servers know they can't hear the orders and have to climb into the booth to get it right - could be an option?!?! I heard the one in Pasadena has a much better ambiance. We all LOVED the food, but I think I will try the one in San Clemente or Laguna (?) next.

I normally love Nick's. The food is delicious and the service good. However, this time I asked for a booth inside when I made my reservation a day or two before. I had a 12:30 reservation and they did not hold a both inside for us but sat us outside instead. There were heat lamps but the cold wind made us uncomfortable the entire time. We couldn't wait to get back to our warm car and thaw out.

I would definitely recommend Nick's on 2nd. The seafood enchiladas were flavorful and I was happy with every bite. I had very little leftovers and still wanted to take it home because it was that good. The restaurant has a great ambiance although I will say the noise levels were a bit high. I found it hard to hear what my partner was saying and had to frequently lean over our massive table. Adam was a lovely server and I enjoyed my experience at Nicks.

We have been to all of Nick’s locations. This is one of our favorites! We were seated promptly in a booth we requested. Service was excellent, can’t remember our servers name, but he was very attentive. We had a variety of food, I had the Kale salad with salmon. Husband had his favorite fried chicken. Our guest had the seafood enchiladas...all were great!

I eat there at least 2 times a year with my oldest friend who lives in Huntington Beach. It is a 1/2 way point from my house in Manhattan Beach. This is our favorite eatery. Love the food and the service.

Amazing! We reserved for a birthday. My only suggestion is specify if you want indoor or outdoor. They seated us outside and it was way too dang cold. But they were also very accommodating about moving our table. Must try the blackberry mojito and the Chilean sea bass was cooked perfectly! Oh and the butter cake was to die for! We will def be returning. Ps our services was awesome.

Ok, this was the best seabass I have EVER had. My date felt the same.

The 2 young ladies behind the bar were a delight and kept me company whole I waited for my date's flight to arrive.

Our server was perfect, and so understanding when my date's credit card had issues, due to his traveling.

The young man at the host stand was so accommodating with my date's luggage.

A perfect experience!

My first dining experience at Nick’s on 2nd in Long Beach was very enjoyable for the following reasons:
- I successfully made an online reservation
- I was seated with my guest at my reserved time
- The wait staff was timely and attentive
- Our waitress suggested menu options that fit our dietary restrictions
- The suggested food option was fresh and delicious
- Separate checks were not a problem.
Thank you. I will return soon.

We love Nick's on second however our last visit 7 PM on a Tuesday night we found the noise level extremely loud and uncomfortable I will be sure to request seating outside. It was more like a bar scene than a dining experience, this is the first negative time I've had there.
