About Us

Nick's Family Restaurant is a family owned and operated Restaurant located in the Jefferson City Memorial Airport which opened on November 5, 2001.  Nick's is certainly a local favorite with it's reputation for pan-fried chicken and country ham.  Diners come from as far as Columbia, Osage Beach, Rolla and even St. Louis to savor the recipe that started his father's business back in 1967.  Keeping with the family tradition, the menu remains the same as that of his father...featuring pan-fried chicken and country ham with all the side dishes.  Scott has expanded his menu to include breakfast, which is served Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
