  • A LITTLE

    ABOUT US

    Welcome back in time. You will feel like you have stepped into a time capsule. Nick’s, with its old fashioned booths, starving artist prints on the wall and dim light coupled with the smell of made-from-scratch meals makes us one of the more unique places in town.

  • LOCAL

    VENUES

    Nick’s is centrally located to popular venues such as The Orpheum, Ovature Hall, State Capital, Comedy Club, Kohl Center, Madison Museum of Contemporary Art and various other events downtown.

  • CELEBRITY

    VISITS

    Popular among visiting writers and celebrities when in town (Nick’s has served Robin Williams, Lenny Kravitz, Johnny Cash, Garbage, Matt Groening – creator of the Simpsons, Ebert, Jerry Kelly, Chris Borland and a slew of other stars over the years), it’s also a favorite spot among local writers, artists and theater types.

Every day at Nicks, we make all of our food from scratch. Our recipes are affordable, natural and all home-cooked. We chop, slice and serve our way to your stomaches in a vintage atmosphere with traditional friendly service. Come to Nick's to try our In-house daily specials and homemade pies!!
