I have been to Miss Ricky's several times but my last visit left a lot to be desired. Our server was extremely inattentive and we had to ask multiple times for coffee refills and more water. Additionally, we seemed to have a different person help us on the few occasions someone came by the table. We also had to ask for the check twice.

I will come back to Miss Ricky's because I haven't had a problem before this, but it was disappointing to bring someone who'd never been before and have this be the experience.

If I could give it a zero I would, overpriced, raw chicken, crappy service. I hope the chef can step up his game!

It took more than 40 minutes for our breakfast to come out and half of it was cold. It wasn’t crowded and there was no need for such a rush. It was very expensive for poir quality and service.

The wait for the food was unusually long. Our order came out and two of the three meals were missing key ingredients ex; waffles with fresh berries came without the berries and crab cake Benedict without the crab cakes. Our waitress was nowhere to be found so we didn’t even have a chance to ask for the missing items. She finally came to check on us but by that time we were finished. We told her about the mistakes and she comp’d the waffle and didn’t charge for the crab cakes (they were an additional charge) but we still would have liked our meals how we ordered them! Wouldn’t go back.

I had no idea what a cute little place this would be. The lounge upstairs was full of old-school games like Rock em sock em robots and don't break the ice. I loved that they take reservations, which is so rare for brunch places in the loop. Delicious donut holes come to your table when you sit down.

The food was not very good, which is very annoying when paying $19 for chicken and waffles. Spent about $35 per person with no booze. Will not be going back.

Service was very slow and our waiter was less than enthusiastic and not very attentive. I would say the restaurant was moderately busy, but not slammed, and we waited about 45 minutes for our meals. Once it came, the food was good quality and portion sizes were generous. Glad we allowed plenty of time to eat before our Sunday matinee show.

The service was poor. Waiter not engaged. Had to ask for napkin and cutlery after food delivered. Husband's medium rare steak was charred on the outside and cold in the middle. Sent it back. I was asked by 2 staff members if they could take my plate away when I was pretty obviously still eating. Yay for impossible burger and yay for Halal guys for the make-up meal

Great service. We had the cheese curds which were solid. The fried chicken sandwich was small and uneventful. Same with the bloodys - uneventful. A decent restaurant, but way overhyped considering the value.

Great place. Service was fantastic, food was great. We had a round of bloodies that we’re awesome.

Great ambiance! Fantastic location. We will be back! ( especially when rooftop opens)

If you get the chance then head upstairs to the bar Common Club? Great atmosphere too!

Nice and upbeat atmosphere with awesome service. I ordered the chicken and waffles with a side of fried egg. The gee and waffle was fantastic! The chick had an odd batter and crustiness that wasn't my style, but when I peeled it off and requested some ranch dressing to dip it in, it all went down fine. :-)

Loved the vibe of this place. Disappointed they were out of the first two items I ordered, but enjoyed the monte cristo. Definitely not a diet friendly spot, but a innovative menu that was delish.

Service was abysmal and food was not worth the money at all. For the same price you could get a delicious brunch + drinks. A side of fruit is $9. The decor is nice, but doesn't fit the price range. We only saw our waiter twice and he was not attentive at all. Tip was automatically included for our party of 6, which was stated nowhere on the menu. If it were up to us, we would not have tipped at all. I decided to ignore the bad reviews I heard from friends and trust the good reviews here on Open Table, and I really regret it! I never write bad reviews, but this was one of the most disappointing restaurants I've been too yet.

The Monte Cristo deep dish breakfast item was a bit too cooked around the edges, but it had excellent presentation and the interior was delicious.

The salsa and tortilla chip breakfast item (can't remember the name) was good, but felt a bit over priced and lacked uniqueness.

Staff was excellent, service was great. Pricey, but expected for the area.

Great environment but the food is average at-best and has been going downhill in the last year. Really disappointed with how bland the food was on my visit earlier this week (Jan 5 2018). Hope they can step it up since the location is fantastic and the menu items would be good if they were prepared better. Also the price point is too high for the quality of food they serve. Please work on this, I would love to love Miss Ricky's again!

The food was good; however the service was slow. It took over 20 minutes from arrival to receive our drink orders. Other tables that were seated after us, left before us. We informed them of our reservations with open table and they marked us down that we did not come in. I really wanted to like it to have it as a place to go to again.

So, this was a breakfast outing.
The English breakfast was pretty standard. The breakfast sandwich had more issues. Eggs were ordered over easy, but somehow, once assembled in the sandwich, became over hard. Potatoes were fried--not my favorite for breakfast.
For the quality, food was expensive. There is a lot of attention to the theme.
I probably will not go again.

Average, the best and or worst thing to be said... Asked for poached eggs and they came in a watery cup, breakfast potatoes that you could get at any massed produced hotel breakfast buffet and a price tag of $50.00 (with tip X 2 persons)?
