The wait was the worst part. Need a reservation ahead of Time. The Deviled Eggs were delicious and the Seafood Ciopino was excellent! Good bread as well for dipping into the tasty broth.

Another fantastic meal at Nicks. Love the service and atmosphere. You have to try the fried deviled eggs with bacon. All four of us loved our food. The guys were drooling over the fried chicken. If you want a great meal have dinner here.

Been there several times. Great food, large portions and very fairly priced. Plan for a wait if you don't have a reservation. Parking in downtown Laguna is terrible in the summer.

The place is always very busy with a lot of energy but not so loud that you can not carry on a conversation.

No ocean view. I believe Las Brisas, on the north side of the main beach, has ocean view. We didn't eat there so I can't comment on the restaurant.
