“Nic's Italian Steak and Crab House is located on Main Street in Old Town Cottonwood, Arizona. Locals and visitors have discovered the Wine Tasting Rooms, and cool art and antique stores that line Main Street that are fun to explore before dinner at Nic’s. Step through the front door and you are transported to the atmosphere of the great East Coast Steak & Italian restaurants – polished brass, rich dark woods, plush green upholstery, and a 40’ long mahogany bar that could be a Hollywood movie set. Belly up to the bar for handcrafted cocktails and try not to miss Martini Monday – choose any one of our special Martinis for only $3.50!”
