OMG! So disappointed! My wife and I usually go to Pappa Bro?s or Bob?s chophouse both of which are excellent. Thought we would give Nick and Sam?s a try for something new. Our 9:00 reservation was late, place was packed but we have no idea as to why. Even thought the wait staff were friendly service was very slow and the dining room was loud. Mussel appetizer was disgusting smelled and tasted like horse manure! Seriously not fresh sent it back immediately. Tried the shrimp cocktail as a replacement and it was extremely salty. It was not the cocktail sauce but the plain shrimp was way too salty, how can that happen?
I thought the entree?s would make up for the poor appetizers but not even close. Both steaks bone in fillet and New York strip had very little flavor but were cooked correctly. Same with grilled asparagus it tasted like it was boiled and they painted on the grill marks. The mushrooms were not bad but also a little salty.
The waiter said he was sorry for the mussels (which was the only one of the five bad dished we were served that we complained). He said the chef tasted them and agreed they were horrible and the cooking staff got in trouble for letting them go out of the kitchen. He said he took the first two cocktails off our bill. However after getting the bill he did not remove the cocktails and we had asked for them to be removed. With tip $368 at least the bottle of wine was good. I travel all over the US for work and eat out a lot. I can?t even fathom how food this bad could cost so much!
