Pros
"one of the best lobster rolls i have ever had and the view is fantastic"
"Overpriced and food just so so. A total ripoff. The final straw was when the suggested tip should be 25% plus you have to pay for parking"
"Good food great views a bit pricey. One of our favorites "
"Needs wider range in menu maybe some chicken dishes for those who arent fond of seafood but love sitting outside on waterview"
"I was in town last night to enjoy dinner with my family at Nicky's On the Bay in Bayshore, NY. My niece received a meal with a dead fly in it. We did not make a big deal about it and they comp'd the meal - of course as she did not eat it after the first"
Cons
"A deal fly in our meal and no apology from the Management."
"The hostess station had no clue what was happening. They need to have a real manager. But, they were very lovely. "

Bad start to 2016 seasons

We went yesterday afternoon for a late lunch. There were 6 adults, 2 kids and 1 10 month old. We knew that the first really nice warm sunny Sunday that the place would be busy and we were ok with that. We were given the option to sit outside and there would be over an hour wait or we could sit inside and be seated immediately. We choose to sit inside. The waitress Heather was very nice came and took our drink order. She questioned what a French Martini was. We told her and she was fine. Our drinks came to us staggered. About 15 mins later she came an took our order. Most of us order full meals but 2 of the adults ordered 4 appetizers for our meals. We explained what we wanted first. We also requested that the kids food be sent out first.

So we asked for bread for the 10 month old to keep him busy and it took 3 or 4 times asking for her to bring it. We watched a table of 4 next to us with the same waitress get a huge basket of bread when we finally got it it was 2 pieces. The waitress never really come to ask about drinks we had to search her down. I know it was busy. I get it. I was in the business but she never came back. After an hour when we finally asked about our appetizers, she was shocked when we said we did not get them. We did have other tables food brought to our table but it was nothing that we ordered.
At this time, I went to go talk to a manager. I did not get his name, but he was tall about 5 foot 11 inches, light colored hair and had on a blue and green horizontal stripped shirt. I asked him about our food and he said he would check. It still took about 15 more minutes but appetizers did come out. Still no kids food. We asked for everything else to come out right after.
About 20 minutes after out meals came out. When the food came out, all the dirty dishes were still on the table. They cleared and served. The waitress did come back a couple of times to ask us if everything was ok.
During the time that we were waiting for the food, the manager was reprimanding our waitress in front of the customers by the computer station. I understand she was overwhelmed but this should not have been done in the front of the house. Instead of reprimanding her, you could have come over to our table helped bus or take a drink order.
We were just very disappointed with the whole experience. We went to Nickys a few times last season and enjoyed every minute. We have not had a good taste to the start of the season. When we received the bill we were hoping for some compensation. I mean we were seated at 1:45 and left at 5:00. The manager did not take off one drink or anything.
Just very disappointed in what we experienced and not sure if we will be going back,

This restaurant/bar has an excellent location right on the water at the Bay Shore marina. They offer fresh seafood, live music, and friendly service. A great summer experience. The fresh clams are the best around!
