    We've recently moved to the Tyler area and Rick's has been our spot to have a nice dinner or a drink! The bar aera is comfortable and has real bartenders! They know how to make excellent cocktails! The restaurant has great food with plenty of choices. Look forward to coming back in a couple weeks.

    Once again, Rick’s On The Square was great. My U12 shrimp was exceptional. The steak was average. Highly recommend the oysters along with any of their seafood. The band, Members Only, is our favorite band to see but there are other great bands through the months. Amazing atmosphere for a night out with friends!

    Overpriced and mediocre food. "Pan fried garlic chicken" ($23) may as well been chicken and gravy - the sauce was tasteless with no hint of garlic. Waiter told us that the "grilled salmon" ($25 with a goopy, flavorless side sauce) was wild caught - not! Color and texture indicated it was clearly farm raised. The "California Burger" ($19 w/ fries) was overcooked and (surprise!) flavorless. Slivers of avocado, tiny amounts of onions/mushrooms. We didn't complain as we had no time for it to be corrected but it was certainly underwhelming for the price. This place used to be much better!! However, service was good (other than the inaccurate salmon description), as are the cocktails (if pricey at $13 a pop).

    Our server, Taylor, was delightful. Even though the restaurant had many big parties, she warned us our food would be slow (and it probably was), but since she explained at the beginning it was no problem. The food and cocktails were good. The only disappointment was that it was our Anniversary and it would have been nice to receive with a free dessert or something.

    Waited 15 mins after seated, all while the hostesses sat at their station in plain view. Walked over and inquired. The waitress was swamped, yet no bussers. Finally ordered and continued to wait. Asked for bread service and delivered hot and delicious - no butter. Salad I ordered with no Gorgonzola arrived covered with it. Waitress said she would remove. Food arrived and steak was burnt. Salad not removed, so waited at host stand until done so. Nice place, needs management.

    The atmosphere at Rick's on the Square is gorgeous and energetic when the live band is playing! The food is great! The grilled oysters Mediterranean and the fried mushrooms were delicious. My wife's fish street tacos were amazing and my steak was cooked beautifully. The potatoes gratin were good but could have used some more seasoning. The fried okra was okay. Our server was fantastic and he took great care of us! Overall, my wife and I had a wonderful date!

    Food, Service, Atmosphere - all very good! My only complaint was that the band was advertised to begin playing at 8:00pm, and they did not take the stage until after 8:30pm. We enjoy live music, but we're typically part of the early-bird crowd. Just a little frustrated that we didn't get to enjoy the music longer.

    Made a reservation letting them know it was for a birthday and also was excited about the live band. Our reservation was for 7:30pm. We arrived a few minutes early and were seated right away. We had a family next to us whose kids were running around everywhere. Our server took a very long time to greet us, bring us our drinks, and return to take our order. The menu has a mix of several things but for an upscale cost (which is understandable for the area). We both ordered the Chicken fried steak with sides of Au gratin potatoes and macaroni. The food was seasoned well and overall tasted good. There were maybe only 5 tables with customers the entire time we were there. We waited a long time for our check and an even longer time for her to pick up our check and charge us (with a 3% card fee on top). We found out the band didn’t even begin playing until 9:00pm which felt so late to start. On top of everything, they didn’t do anything special for a birthday which was a bummer. Overall, the atmosphere was beautiful and the food was good. Just wish the prices were a bit better and our server would spend less time hanging out in the back and more time focused on the customers. Also, we would’ve loved to hear the band play…

    Rick's was a warm, enjoyable, high-quality experience. Francisco was our server, and his service was a plus to our event. I am also surprised and impressed at the range of prices. Rick's can be my special anniversary, elegant dinner or my Friday casual, fun outing.

    We've been to Ricks many times, so maybe my expectations are too high, but, I must say I was a little disappointed. Service was excellent, but food not quite up to par this visit. We will be back, chalking it up to an off night.

    Calamari was not hot when we got it, and it was a little rubbery. They were completely out of pork chops so I had to make another entree selection. My daughter said her chicken salad sandwich was disgusting. Almost $100 for three of us to eat (with ONE GLASS of wine) for sub-par food... VERY disappointing!

    Absolutely LOVE Rick's for dinner! Whether filet mignon or street tacos, everything is delicious! We've been twice in the last 2 months, and will most *definitely* be returning. The *only* thing I'd change is the lighting level. It's so dim that reading the menu is very difficult. We used the flashlights on our phones, and weren't the only table doing so, either time. I realize this may have been due to recent time change, so keep that in mind.

    Impossible to park with event set up. Restaurant staff seemed unaware and unable to give good directions for parking. Menu was the same as every other steakhouse around. Nothing innovative or interesting. We were hoping for something different from the usual steak, couple of fish choices or fried stuff. But we were hungry and didn’t want to try to find a different place to eat. So Hubby ordered club sandwich. The bread was under toasted and almost soggy. Homemade potato chips were not crispy at all and had little flavor. Salt helped with flavor but not texture. I ordered beef nachos that were mediocre at best. Nothing more than chips, limited taco meat but lots of blank jack cheese. There was a side salsa but it had little flavor. Nachos are hard to screw up but these were really nothing more that a plate of chips with melted cheese. Sorry but will not try again!

    Met a dear cousin in law to catch up on our lives. Hailey met us and immediately seated us in a nice quiet area. She gave us plenty of time to read the menu while she served us our drinks and waters. The food was great and we were able to talk and hear each other well! Ambiance was warm and comforting with the dark woods and a bit of sunlight coming through the windows in front looking out to the town square! Hailey also got a to go order ready and timed it to arrive to the table at just the right moment. All in all, a lovely early dinner with someone I truly care about and wanted to pay attention to her words and give us a very nice and healthy fun meal.
