Server was not on his A Game Sunday night. We rarely saw him.
Atmosphere wonderful. Views of the lake are beautiful. Good and service excellent
Our server was Sarah and she was excellent. She always had a smile on her face, was very friendly and we enjoyed everything about our meal very much. The only negative thing was that nothing was even mentioned that it was our anniversary. We celebrated another anniversary with you and we were offered a free dessert. Not a big deal, but a little disappointing. Otherwise, a perfect evening and the food was very good. We will come back.
Rick's provides a wonderful view and ambience. The menu and wine selection by the glass are both large and seasonal. Food and service were outstanding. I did have a very minor glitch with using open table as when I first asked to be seated and I had reservations, the hostess said there were no reservations in my name. When I said I used open table, they found the reservation.
Very nice restaurant with friendly staff and prompt service. I have introduced several friends to it and have not been disappointed.
Excellent time. Service by Nick Cmehill was outstanding. Everyone enjoyed having many food selections to choose from. I
Great atmosphere, excellent food, variety of choice, outsatanding service.
Thank You Ricks Boatyard Cafe it Was A Great Experience Celebrating My Sister's Birthday An 5Yr Breast Cancer Survivor An it So Much To Be In Beautiful Place.. And Food Was Wonderful Were Excited About Coming Again.. Our Server Was Did A Great Job Thank You For Showing My Family A Wonderful Time To Our 1st Time... Margie Brown See You Again Some....
We were celebrating three of our children's 18th birthdays and had a wonderful experience. David, our server, was very personable, detailed and engaging. He specifically remembered our kids' names and used them as he was serving on several occasions. The only less than positive component of our experience was noise level as our group of 11 were seated next to the bar and the sound from the band was quite loud which caused issues with being able to communicate too well.
We were celebrating my birthday, so eating at Rick's Boatyard made it a perfect day. Excellent food, beautiful fall scenery, noise level appropriate so we could enjoy each others company. Waitress was very cordial and accommodating.
We had a great time -- server was friendly and helpful - little slow at keeping water glasses full and at that time wasn't a busy place -- little crowded at the table they put 5 of us in a booth may have been why waiter didn't know our water glasses were empty - he couldn't see them -- next time will ask for a table for the 5 of us
Rick's NEVER disappoints!! I went for my birthday this past Friday and it was wonderful! My friend had ordered flowers for me and they brought them to the table after I arrived. What a wonderful surprise. Our server was wonderful and very attentive but not hovering. The food is always spot on. We both had the filet, wow! It was awesome!! And the Reeses cheesecake, OMG!!!
I love them so much, I am going back for my actual birthday on Tuesday. :)
Stephen was our server, very average service for this amazing place. It was lunch, but made our experience less than what we hoped
Great food, high prices. Love the live jazz
Food was delicious and the service was wonderful!
Even while understaffed, our server, service, and food was awesome!
The server was too busy. We had to wait awhile for food, which she voluntarily apologized. Our table was a bit crowded for five people although good for conversation. Since we were there for brunch, we should not have had to ask for condiments. Food and atmosphere was good. Will give it another try.
2nd kne there. Love the place! Will be back on our next visit to Indianapolis
Always a good time at Rick's! The food is always good and presented well. Good wine list. The patio bar and outdoor seating on the lake makes for great atmosphere.
We enjoyed our family get together. Food was delicious & served quickly. Our sever was also great. We will be back again!
Had a great overall experience. Waiter was great (forgot his name), food was amazing and drinks were outstanding. Will definitely be returning.
First time going here and it was a nice place to eat. We had reservations for 3:30 and were able to order from the lunch or dinner menu. Food was good and the view was great
The service was great and the food was excellent
Everyone greeted us so warmly and wished us a happy anniversary. Sat at a wonderful somewhat secluded booth which was very romantic and the service was quick and great. Food was delicious. Couldn’t stop eating. We will definitely return. The live jazz music really helped the warm, cozy environmment.
It was a little noisy, the service was average, server was very pleasant but not very attentive. Food was above average, but not outstanding. Seafood chowder was amazing though.
Great food and service! Love the crab cakes and blackened Mahi Mahi. Fun place to celebrate
We had a nice time and the food was outstanding. There was a large party near us who were rather loud but that wasn't the fault of Rick's. Overall it was a lovely experience.
Our ladies lunch group had a wonderful time. Had a great waitress.
Excellent service and ambiance. Food was just okay.
Ribeye was amazing. Prime and cheddar sandwich was warm and bread was soggy.
We requested our favorite table and were told it was reserved for a larger party.
that party was smaller than ours so we were lied to. We eat here frequently and were so disappointed.
We Ordered a steak well done it was served all pink inside. I figured I would give them another try. So went for brunch....the bacon was under cooked the sausage was cold the biscuits were hard and crunchy. The only thing Rick's got going on is the view. Rick's boatyard should be ashamed of themselves for serving food like that. Management should seek another chief. we spent over 150.00. I dont recommend eating there until some changes are done.
Very good with a beautiful view. Great service. A perfect steak
We had a party of 4 and the service was outstanding! We all loved our entree's and the appetizers were very tasty too.
Party of 5. Waited a long time for server to take drink orders and then to serve the drinks. Had to ask several times for bread. Food was very good, however they were out of two separate menu items, one of them a special which is disappointing. Keep in mind menu prices account for the only waterside dining option on the west side of Indianapolis.
We had a great time celebrating a birthday there. We always love the view and the food!
Group of 10 went to celebrate birthday. Excellent service, especially with that many people. The food arrived at the same time and they had no problem doing separate checks. We’ve gone several times as a large group and overall they have done a wonderful job accommodating all of us.
