When an upscale restaurant offers an awesomely discounted happy hour menu, you can bet we’ll be there. Dallas Food Nerd writer Nelli and I stopped by Nick & Sam’s Grill in Park Cities to try out the new 5 for $5 at 5 menu. See the full menu here.

I have been a fan of the happy hour menu at the Nick & Sam’s Grill Uptown location for years, but was excited to see the Park Cities shop, too, offers the 5 for $5 menu with a twist. This menu features an array of bites ranging from seafood to pizza and other grill-type food. Also, the happy hour menu is heavy on drinks, so beer drinkers, wine connoisseurs and cocktail cravers have a chance to drink up.

On the weekdays from 5 to 7 p.m., guests can enjoy a variety of drinks and bites from the happy hour menu. Each of the items on this menu are only $5. It’s a guaranteed win! Your belly will be full and satisfied. Here’s a look at what to find during happy hour:

Chef Samir also brought out some additional items you can order while dining at this location of Nick and Sam’s. It’s too good to pass up!

In addition to the 5 for $5, the Park Cities location also offers a special Happy Hour sushi menu, complete with a sashimi trio, spicy tuna roll, gincallion yellow tail roll and a vegetable roll. The rolls are available for $10.

One important note for our fellow Food Nerds. This restaurant is a smidge different than Uptown in that it’s a tad bit more sophisticated than the hip Uptown spot. It targets a more seasoned, sophisticated crowd of individuals who are searching for a relaxing way to unwind. Suits, ties and tailored shirts filled the bar area, just to give you a visual. Still, if you work closer to this location, Nick & Sam’s Park Cities is a good spot for an inexpensive hour. And you really can’t beat drinks and appetizers for $5. Just remember to use your inside voice.

What menu items are you looking forward to try?
