Nicks on the Bay

One of our favorite places to eat is Nick's on the Bay in Basin Bayou, Florida.  It takes about 30 minutes travel time from the cottage, but it is well worth the drive.  I think the first time I went to Nick's I was probably 7 or 8 years old and the original Nick was still around.  It sits right on the Choctawhatchee Bay and the seafood is fresh off the boat.  Nick's relative's still run the restaurant.  For a long time it was just locals who came here and the few who had found this gem.  When we sat down this last time, the food was fabulous, but it looks like the word about this delicious food is spreading and the prices were finally reflecting it!
The locals tend to hang out at the bar and stare at who comes in.  Deer heads and all!
