Nick's Lobster - Dining Out

While runnning evening errands in South Brooklyn I decided to pop into Nick's  technically known as Nick's Lobster for some late night chow.  There are things I love about Nick's Lobster and things that annoy me. First my loves, the seafood is always on point, no matter what time you go to Nick's Lobster, it's usaully packed. Forget about trying to get a seat in the summer time when the outdoor patio is open , you'll be waiting all night! The portion size is great and the food is pretty tasty. Nick's Lobster serves up simple, classic seafood dishes and does it right!

One thing about Nick's Lobster, do not expect quick service, their waitstaff is good they just don't have enough of them! A couple of more servers and this place would be in good shape. Nick's Lobster, is a great choice when you're in the mood for simple seafood and want to stay in the neighborhood. Now the moment you've all been waiting for, the food review:

The New England Clam chowder, my absolute favorite dish on the menu. Made Homestyle with chunks of clams and potato it's absolutely fabulous , defintely do try!!

Order this!
 The Lobster Bisque- way too salty and not enough lobster flavor- it's a no go for me

Skip This
 The Baked Clams- served a drop away from burnt and doused with a bit too much butter/oil they were okay.
A bit too oily and burnt for my taste
 The Penne with Lobster Cream Sauce- something looks very familiar about this dish?? Probably because it's just the lobster bisque with heavy cream added in and voila you have the Penne with Lobster Cream Sauce. It was pretty good if you're into those types of dishes and my fiance totally is!

Really good if you're into heavy cream sauces and don't mind heartburn! Please serve with
Alka-seltzer!

From the Broiled Menu-  Broiled Salmon served with baked potato- simple and spectacular. Salmon is perfectly cooked, the portion size HUGE - bottom line I loved it! 

Delicous, well cooked, Do Try!
Some items on Nick's  menu I love more than others overall a good choice. It's not exactly cheap, without a tip the bill was $65 but really it was a lot of food, way more than I think we needed- my fiance tends to get carried away lol!
