With two restaurants in the suburbs, Nick and Jakes now wants to come into the heart of the city.

The owners are in final negotiations to take over the former Beacon tavern space at 5031 Main St. If all goes as planned, Nick and Jakes on Main would open in mid-November.
Weve always wanted to be in that area, said Kevin Timmons, co-founder and co-owner of Nick and Jakes with Doug Watkins. We are a neighborhood bar and grill and I feel like we would be a good complement to the restaurants that are already in that neighborhood.
The first Nick and Jakes opened in Overland Park in mid-2001 and the owners later added a Parkville location. The restaurants serve soups and salads, specialty burgers, sandwiches and entrees like baby back ribs, chicken pot pie, blackened chicken carbonara, steaks, and poached salmon. They also offer daily lunch specials.
The restaurants are named after Nick Timmons, son of Kevin Timmons, and Jake Watkins, son of Doug Watkins.
