Don't go here unless you like being around college students. It's a short walk from the campus, but the good food and other attractions have made it a campus favorite for years.

Cool atmosphere, an IU landmark. Had the stromboli and it was very good, and large portion. Cold beer and good service.

Nicks' has been a Bloomington landmark for many years. There has even been a book written about it! If you can't get to the game this is THE place to watch it, just a couple of blocks off IU campus and Sample Gates. Pictures of past years adorn the walls including those of Nick's diehards wearing their Nick's t-shirts all... More

On a visit to IU, we were told we had to stop by Nick's, and it was well worth it! The food was great, especially the bucket of fries we ordered (yet still didn't finish!) The environment adds to the unique dining experience, and there are TVs as well which makes it a great place for watching a game. If... More

Really enjoyed our visit to Nick's. Great service, beer and food. Italian beef and pork loin sandwiches were the highlight.

When in Bloomington.... Nick's is a long-time IU tradition, brimming with memorabilia. I've been here many times through the years, but the food last night was the best I've ever had on a visit. In the past, I've liked the chili and the fried mushrooms..... last night, I stopped in solo during a quick overnight in Bton for an early... More

You walk in into a truly old English tavern/ pub atmosphere. Very friendly and helpful staff. And of-course hands down one of the best burgers that I have ever tasted - Beef, Turkey AND VEGETARIAN (Bean) too! Cooked to order, they come out on eclectically parsley garnished plates. True to their word, the bean patty had a signature flavor that... More

Went there with my spouse and a few former students, at their recommendation. Seems to be a must-do for student experience. Lovely building on the outside, very large space both ground and upper floor. The upper floor is very nicely decorated with sports memorabilia. Did not eat there but had some drinks. The place seemed pretty empty though, screens were... More
