Rick's Cafe Boatyard
Was expecting more from the king crab
Spicy Plum Glazed Jumbo Shrimp and coconut rice....AMAZING. Hubby had the Atlantic Salmon Roulades and he was pretty happy too. Would definitely recommend and always make a point to stop if in this part of the country again.
Lovely lunch with a lake view. Wait staff was friendly, informative.
Rick's easily accommodated changes from an outdoor seating reservation, to gathering in the bar, then eating indoors for a party of 6.
Service was not good at all, brought a new client to lunch with reservations, we sat for 20 minutes before being acknowledged, it was a 2 hour experience, should have been 1 hour max.
We were seated outside and watched a thunderstorm blow in last Sunday! It was beautiful however the high wind gusts blew everything off our table .... we packed up and moved inside and the wait staff could have not been nicer!
It was crazy handling everyone coming inside from the storm and your entire staff- manager included took it in stride and were so accommodating!! Excellent job - we will be back when we can enjoy the outside dining for a longer period of time.
Beautiful evening by the water - then a storm rolled in, but the staff handled it very well! Delicious food!
Outside was not cleaned spiders evrry corner
My fiance shirt got ruined from outside deck
That me feel like anything can drop into my food
Outside i would not recommend
Calamari was superb. Fried shrimp and house salmon were outstanding. A great Anniversary dinner.
It was my wife’s and I first time eating there and we wanted a special night for our date night. The server/ waiter David was very knowledgeable, extremely polite and a perfect gentleman. He made the experience that much better. The food was perfect. The atmosphere was perfect. The scenery was perfect. It was a perfect experience and we will definitely be back there again very soon. Thank you Ricks Boatyard Cafe and David for the perfect night.
The server approached the table speaking couple of words on Spanish (muy bonita) we are a couple in our early 50’s and Hispanic, I felt insulted by his approach my husband was very upset. The cost of the entres do not match the service nor the setting (plastic top tables). The view is spectacular
Food was good and portions were great per usual. The outside view was beautiful & the fans helped the heat/humidity. It was my mother’s birthday and I had a cute cupcake for her and I asked the server if she could plate it and bring it out at dessert time and she said it could be accommodated, but she came out with the cupcake still in the box, before even ordering our drinks.. which.. I could have done and was a total waste of time.. wish they could have accommodated me.. the server was kind of rude when asking about the check, again, before even ordering drinks & was quite rude when trying to assist my family with a language barrier. Would have been five stars but the service could have been way better for such an expensive place.
I have to remind my myself that I am in Indiana when dining at Rick's. The atmosphere makes you feel like you're at an east coast restaurant enjoying some great seafood on the ocean! Great place.
Great place. Outside lunch. Super service.
It was our first time at Ricks Cafe Boatyard and it was a lovely night. Beautiful breeze, great food and even greater company! (:
This was our monthly Lunch Bunch get together. We are Wayne Township Retired Teachers
I had a flat tire on the way so my friend was there first. I was so "grateful" to be there after a blow out on west 38th street and so happy my friend had waited. The girl at the desk knew who I was looking for and our waitress was the most delightful young lady we could have ever asked for. She sensed we were there for a long lunch and only helped advise us, never rushed us for the next course. Her recommendations were outstanding. We told her we both liked spicy and each course was out of this world. Thank you for a lovely day.
We always celebrate my son's birthday at Rick's. We always receive impeccable service , wonderful food, relaxing atmosphere and a memorable experience.
One of my 2 favorite places for a dinner that's a 'cut above' the norm.
BRAVO, once again, Well Done!
Only problem was long wait for the food and we never got bread when we ask 4 it
We loved Rick's Boatyard Cafe and will definitely return.
Very good food and friendly service. We enjoyed our meal and experience. We certainly plan to return.
Food was good.
Greeters were friendly.
Wait staff earnest but harried.
Tables too high or chairs too low -
felt like a toddler sitting at the
dining room table.
Drinks were good.
View was excellent.
All things considered, I would go
A lovely, relaxed setting. Friendly, and efficient wait staff. Would highly recommend!
Some of Our food was cold. Slow service. Biscuits & Gravy tasted like seafood.
Our waitress was amazing, patient and extremely helpful.
Mixed drinks I had were very sub par.
Rick’s is one of the best restaurants in Indianapols. Great food, great service, great atmosphere.
Birthday dinner for ten. Well taken care of. We were not rushed out despite the restaurant being busy. Was able to bring in my own cake and they provided extra plates and silverware...loved it!
We had a reservation for 2, outside. When we arrived, on time, we were told that there would be a 20 minute wait. That's why reservations were made!!
I was not happy dining inside on a gorgeous evening!!
Service good excellent.did not have a long wait for seating.
Anniversary and nothing was mentioned to us or a no free dessert was offered! Our dinners were cool at best and not very tasteful.
Wish the crab legs were less costly. Crab legs should also come with a side. Other than that, we had a wonderful experience. Our server was excellent.
Mom in town for a visit
This was a find on Google. Close to our hotel. Loved having a special lunch overlooking the lake. Good food and reasonable price.
Our granddaughter said it is the BEST penne alfredo in the WORLD. As always, our experience and the environment were exceptional. I liked the online reservation aspect very much too. Our service was excellent....even offered to bring out the kids meals earlier; when our appetizers were served.
The aboliece was perfect! And with a goranage sunset. Music was perfert also!
Greg was an excellent waiter. Food was rushed by the kitchen, but delicious. Perfect outdoor night!
Great place to eat, I would definitely recommend to others!
I went to this venue on a grandmother/grandson dinner date prior to his return to Barbados after a summer visit with me. The food was delicious, as well as, the service and atmosphere being wonderful. He’s already planning to return to Ricks on his next visit back to see Grandma. 😃😃😃
We had a very nice evening. The waitress was so nice. The food was delicious. We will definitely be back.
