“Restaurant” comes from the French word to “restore”, and originally referred to thick soups and broths meant to restore one’s health after a long day of work.
At Nick’s we embrace the potential of a restaurant to restore our guests not only physically, but emotionally as well.
Nick’s is a place where each guest feels valued, taken care of, where they can relax and restore their connections to each other, and to the community around them.
Give your loved ones The Gift of Restoration! Share the Nick’s Experience!
Gift cards to Nick’s are available through our web site or in the restaurant.
For every $50 gift card, you get a $5 guest certificate*.

Twas’weeks before Christmas,
and all through Nick’s place,
the Nick’s Elves were busy, decorating with haste.
Twinkle lights were hung, by the fireplace with care,
knowing the REAL St. Nick, would soon be there.
Families wait elsewhere, in line for hours,
but at Nick’s Pizza & Pub, we believe family-time is power.
No lines, no mess, no dishes to clean,
just a warm fireplace, your family, and our friendly team!
The sound of bells jingling, as shells crunch on the floor,
the holidays are here – You’ll feel it the second you walk
through our big wooden door!
The Nick’s Elves have flown all the way in from the North Pole to
deck the halls because Santa and Mrs. Claus are coming to visit
their favorite family pizza restaurant.
Join us to meet both Santa and Mrs. Claus:
