THE LOCALE | Niki's Bar & Grille
THE LOWDOWN | A drink and some food for less than five bucks. That's what you can find at Niki's Bar & Grille during happy hour, so that's where we went this week.
Niki's Bar & Grille was previously the Gator Island Grill and Sports Pub in the heart of Socastee. You'll still find some of the same staff and same regulars. It's a friendly locals joint where everyone gets along. You can watch sports, eat food, sip drinks and play pool and darts.
