Beep, beep! It’s Takeout Tuesday, when we feature alumni-owned restaurants and food establishments in a video review. Let’s support these and other locally owned small businesses by ordering takeout.

Nico’s Pier 38 – located at 1129 N. Nimitz Highway and owned by Julie Fanning-Grigg ’83 Chaize – began in 2004 as a small lunch spot on the docks, then evolved into a fabulous, open-air restaurant with a full bar. With its location next to the fish markets, this local establishment serves the freshest products daily.
We ordered some ‘ono dishes:
- Furikake Pan-seared Ahi plate
- Spicy ahi, Shoyu and Deluxe poke
- Shrimp Scampi with linguine
- Fish & chips
- Truffle fries
- Steak Frites
- Crème Brulee cheesecake
Nico’s at Pier 38 is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. For hours of operation or more information, visit their website or follow them on Instagram.
