Nico’s Pier 38

Delicious pier-side seafood restaurant with fresh fish and great prices

The Restaurant

Opened in 2004 by two local fisherman and French born Chef Nico Chaize, Nico’s has grown from a humble hole in the wall to one of the most popular seafood restaurants in town. The quality of the fish is top notch and always fresh. At lunchtime it has a much more casual counter service vibe, with a more of a convenient box lunch menu for the downtown workers looking for a quick and delicious bite for a good price. At night it has a slightly more upscale feel with full service and more sophisticated cuisine.

The restaurant also has a unique open air setting, right in the heart of the harbor, a reminder of how fresh the seafood is. It’s coming straight from the source. The freshest fish in town, with a french twist from its founding Chef Nico. You can expect live music every Tuesday night and Friday and Saturday all day. Daily specials are posted every morning according to what the fresh catch is.

It also includes a fish market offering many types of poke, sashimi platters, fresh fish fillets, home smoked fish, and local and in-house products like Nico’s own bottled dressing and dips. Or try the cafe for coffee and pastries.
