"Had two occasions to visit Nix's Mate this week -- had the club sandwich with a side a DELECTABLE fries twice this week... Club sandwich was very good too.
I find the wait staff is always very courteous and attentive."

"I feel like the restaurant has 'dialed back' the creativity of their luncheon menu -- that used to have echoes of their more intriguing full dinner menu (Which I have not seen)
Don't get me wrong, many of the items are quite good and like I've said I've been 2x in a week -- but the burger, the club sandwich, the variety of salads, etc. are pretty 'safe' fare on a menu for a business lunches... totally understandable. However I recall a DINNER menu that was pretty cool and there were some tastes of that in the luncheon menu.
Either way, I'll be back."

"Nix's turned out to be a bit more trendy than we were expecting. It is an after-work gathering spot with couches and high-tops, not so much a dinner spot. However, I had one of the best lobster rolls I've had in awhile. The appetizer selection looked good too, although we were definitely looking for a more substantial meal. Good food, at a reasonable price. We chose the place more for convenience than anything else, and it turned out well. We were a little too senior for the rest of the crowd, although Nix's is in a Hotel. The waitress wasn't the most attentive, but other staff helped out."

"The waiters/waitresses were more interested in talking to each other than serving. After being seated it took so long for water to be brought out that we had to look around to ask for someone to bring some and there were barely any other patrons. The atmosphere was nice and the food was ok."

"The appetizer tuna tacos were delicious. We had the filet and a steak tip caesar salad and the meats were cooked exactly as we had ordered. Our waitress Jessica was informative and fun to talk to. The laid back atmosphere was just what we were looking for and Nix Mate fit the bill."

"i went with 4 girlfriends to celebrate a birthday, saturday at 6pm. it was dead quiet, but we also went in the middle of a snowstorm. the oysters were good (nothing to write home about), and the drinks were good as well. overall nothing bad about the experience, but the vibe was the best part about it. very cool interior."

"Excellent food, efficient and unobtrusive service, and enough room between tables to enjoy only your own group's conversation. The portions are way bigger than they need to be, but the take-home bags are nice too."

"Excellent service with a friendly, young staff whom greets you upon entering and leaving. Food was pretty good. Music was a bit cheesy as if you were attending a 90's wedding reception."
