Wow this super-retro place seems like it hasn't changed in 40 years and it probably hasn't. But we had one of the best meals of our trip here. Definitely check it out!

My wife and I vacationed at Dewey Beach and had a blast. We discovered Nick’s on our last full day there and wish we had tried them sooner! We each had their cheeseburger and I had fries and my wife had the onion rings. Place...is small but folks are friendly, clean and we had our burgers in minutes. Piled high, great rolls, fresh and delicious! If we’d stayed longer I would have tried the cheesesteak being born and raised in Philly but will save that for our next vacay there.More

If you want to start a conversation in Philadelphia, ask where you can get the best cheesesteak. If you want to start an argument, tell a Philadelphian you can get a good cheesesteak outside the city. As someone who has lived in and around Philly...my whole life, my standards are high for the City of Brotherly Love’s most iconic cuisine. With impossibly few exceptions, a passable cheesesteak can NOT be found outside a 20 mile radius of the town. That said, Nick’s in Dewey Beach just might be the farthest (125 miles) location from Broad and Market that you will find a steak this authentic! Not only that, but Nick’s makes killer hoagies too. It all starts with the roll, and somehow they’ve got ‘em. The real deal crunch on the outside and pillowy-soft inside provides the ideal bread bed for delicately chopped lean beef, cooked to perfection. Your choice of cheese (provolone is mine) is melted through, and served piping hot to eat in or well wrapped to take to the beach, only one block away. They are fast and friendly, and the prices are quite reasonable for this kind of real estate.More

Ordered take out to eat by the pool, so I forgot to take photos. Had a chicken cheesesteak and a chicken salad sub, cheese fries and chopped chicken breast for the dog. My son’s family had a meatball sub which was mediocre, a turkey sub...and Maryland fries , which were good. Everything was good. I like the sub rolls. Overall it’s a decent sub shop. If you are staying within walking distance, it’s a good choice for lunch.More

Embarrassed to write that in our four years of visiting Dewey, this was our first trip to Nick's. That being said, after eating this year on there on several occasions, we totally and honestly regret missing out on the other years! Sub roll was perfect,...soft and in proper proportion to the steak and cheese. Steak was nicely seasoned and was delicious. I had both the original cheeseteak and one with mushrooms and cheese. I knew the owner has a feisty reputation and was able to see this in action. The person in front of me was waiting for his order and was leaning on the closed tables (take out only for now)...the owner who was cooking in the back started shaking his head and then barked out across the restaurant.."no leaning on my tables!!!" I had to laugh as I guess this is part of the charm.More

This place has an awesome pizza steak sub, the sauce isn't poured on like some places do, here the chop up the steak on the grill and add the sauce while its cooking and their rolls taste fresh baked. I also appreciate that they have...Birch Beer on the fountain, it's my favorite and hard to find except bottled. The staff is friendly and the prices aren't too hateful for the beach.More

Every time my family goes to Dewey Beach, Nick's is a must for lunch or dinner! The menu has plenty of fresh and flavorful subs, salads and gyros. The Greek pastries are great!

Nick's restaurant is usually never crowded and they serve your food very quickly. Good food for the price.

Nick's is on our "gotta stop here" list for our annual trip to Dewey. The steak sandwich is the best anywhere! However, we are not a big fan of their fries. Not a problem though; just get a bigger steak sandwich and skip the fries!...:)More

Always wary when restaurants claim to have authentic locale specific foods. The example at Nick's is obviously, "Philadelphia Cheese Steaks", but you can Believe it in this case. They're packed with delicious thinly sliced steak on a soft sub/hoagie roll and the optional extras include...sweet peppers along with onions, mayo etc. etc. Just wish I could rave about the fries but have to rate them, so so. Nice clean facility with dining tables available, although we chose carry-out. However, it's the Philly Cheese Steak that drew me to Nick's and I say, it's the "Real Deal"!More
