Today for my dad's birthday my parents, grammie, Steve, and I went to Nick's Fish House for dinner. My dad has been talking about wanting to go to Nick's for a long time now and everyone has been saying good things about it so my dad decided thats where he wanted to go for his birthday dinner.

On the ride down I looked up the Yelp.com reviews and was getting a little nervous about my dad's choice in restaurant after reading the reviews. However, after tasting the food, I was relieved. The outside bar/dining area was very busy, the inside not so much. The service from our waitress was sub-par, but the bartender came out from behind the bar and asked if we needed anything, etc. Despite our waitresses inattentiveness, our dining experience was good. How could we not with a Natty Boh to drink, yummy food, and a great view of the water.

I ordered one of the daily specials: Shrimp & Grits with Tasso Ham. The ham was had a great smokey flavor and tasted like it was seasoned with Old Bay.

Steve ordered the tuna steak sandwich with wasabi mayo. I felt the wasabi mayo was a little overpowering for my taste, but it was still tasty.

My dad ordered the chicken chesapeake.

My mom ordered the seafood cobb salad which came with shrimp, crabmeat, and chicken. The Russian salad dressing was house-made and had a really good flavor.

My grammie ordered the crabcake sandwich. She said it had lump and non-lump (?) crabmeat in it which she liked and that it was probably the best crabcake she's ever had. That's saying a lot because this lady has had a lot of crabcakes in her day.
