                                                      Our first time to visit and will definitely come back. Our server was in training but she had good support and worked very hard at taking care of us. I ordered the salmon with the crawfish sauce and it was flavorful. Drinks were very good. And BONUS…Big Daddy (band) played and we had an absolute blast!

                                                      Outstanding time at Rick's! Seated promptly, had immediate service and never overbearing. Not many diners on a Monday night, but it was nice to hear our conversation. Food was hot, prepared correctly and wasn't rushed from course to course. Drinks were ON POINT! This is our new weeknight date spot.

                                                      We went for my birthday and paid the cover to sit outside where the band was playing. Music was outstanding, food was great! Service was slow but I’m guessing it’s due to everyone being short staffed, we didn’t mind. Our waiter was super busy but still great! Great place for an adults only night. Big Daddy Band was energetic and such great music!

                                                      Ate there about four years ago when the menu was that of a more upscale restaurant. Now it resembles more of a pub food place. The food was still quite good. Service was efficient except our server came to the table and complained about having to work on a Friday night..ummm sorry? Anyway would go back. Live bands on weekends with a cool vibe.

                                                      Was a pretty good place. We came to watch our favorite 90s band. Our waiter was pretty on top of things, the food was good. It was a tad over priced imo, but it was pretty good. The atmosphere was fun.

First time at the restaurant to celebrate daughter’s 19th birthday we’ll definitely be back the next time we are visiting Tyler.

Our server was super friendly and made the experience ten times more enjoyable. everything came out quickly and the whole atmosphere was comfortable and relaxing. I will definitely be going again soon. The prices are high but it’s worth the money!

                                                      We were very disappointed in our visit. We were seated quickly, but no servers came to our table for quite some time. A waitress finally came to our table and began to take our drink order. A waiter then approached and, in a very rude manner, told the waitress that we were his table and quickly took charge. (It was a very rude and embarrassing altercation.) We ordered three appetizers, but the waiter made no effort to take our dinner orders until I asked him to, alerting him to the fact that we had somewhere we needed to be at a certain time. The oysters were no bigger than the size of quarters and the calamari was chewy. Our entrees were enjoyable but the squash was overcooked and mushy. Our final bill came to well over $200 for the four of us. We have no intention of returning.

                                                      Always the best. Never had a bad meal and the banana pudding for dessert is always a must have.

                                                      They need to work on their communicative issues. Couldn’t get anyone to answer the phone. Left message for reservation and never got confirmation call. Finally used the Open Table app on their website and never got confirmation from them either. After we got there the food and service was good.

                                                      If the restaurant isn’t open for business, booking a table shouldn’t be an option. Have had great experiences in the past, but this snafu was embarrassing for me as a host.
