    Love Ricks. Food is always good. Our service is usually really good but last night was VERY slow. We sat for about 20-30 mins before anyone even came to our table. We decided to go to the bar and get our own drinks. The band was late setting up, but once they started it was fun!

    Price was above what the quality of the food. We had the Calamari and it was greasy with the breading coming off. I think they fried it in the improper temp for it to come out that way. My steak was undercooked and was to peppery for my liking. Service was underwhelming and it just did not feel inviting.

    The food was good, one of us had to send a medium well steak back because it was still actively bleeding. Definitely not medium well. But they fixed it quickly. The server was really nice, but for a slow night, she would disappear for very long periods of time so it was difficult to get drink refills, our checks, then waiting for her to come back. We weren't in a hurry but can't give 5 stars for that. Overall, we would go back, it was worth it.

    This was our first time here and we had a very nice time. Our server was professional, polite, and attentive without being overly familiar or intrusive. The place is quite nice and comfortable even though we were there at the peak of the lunch rush. The food was good: I enjoyed my burger but others were more pleased with their meal. The fries were obviously fresh but could have been cooked to be more crispy, in my opinion. I look forward to returning.

    No one was there as we ate in the afternoon. Slow service, no refills on iced tea. Chicken Fried Steak was very tough. We have dined here many times this year and the food seems to not be as good, recently.

    Food was good. Place was a little noisy but that’s because of the hard surfaces in the open dining. Good bartender. Waiter was ok but not outstanding. Waited on the band…..got sick of waiting…left. Band cost the restaurant money. Would have stay and had drinks for another 2 hours but they couldn’t get their act together.

    This place is great. I took my granddaughter and wanted to just sit and chat and the service was great. Not too busy. The noise level was wonderful. The peach cobbler and banana pudding are to die for. We will do this again.

    I was looking for good seafood in Tyler and liked their menu the best. great choice. The Caesar salad was outstanding. The grilled Red fish was just the right size and grilled to perfection. I will definitely visit Rick's on the Square again and soon.

    Disappointed. Made dinner reservation for 8:00 intending to hear band at9:00 as advertised. Waited 15 min before waitress came by. Ordered, ate & drank and waited and waited and waited. Band was watching the Rangers game at the bar. Show started 40 minutes late. Drunk kid bumped into our table and spilled my husbands beer all over my dress. Told waitress, expecting some remedy,& she basically said “sorry”. No replacement beer. Had to flag her down for drinks - she started waiting on another big table and we lost her. We still a $20 tip on an $83 ticket. Food was good, but our date night was less than we had hoped for. Thought this might be a new go-to spot for us. We like to eat, drink & dance and usually have another couple or 2 with us. And, we spend a lot of money and tip well - even for mediocre service, but we felt like Rick’s could care less for our business -so I’m not sure that we will return and I definitely won’t rave about it to our friends. I think you can do better.

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.

    What a beautiful restaurant, great ambiance and excellent service, the live music was an added bonus, just adds to the atmosphere, loved the band tin man that played all my favorite 1980’s hits. First time at the restaurant to celebrate daughter’s 19th birthday we’ll definitely be back the next time we are visiting Tyler.

    The food was absolutely amazing, i was able to eat an appetizer, entree and desert without feeling over stuffed. 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!
