The ambiance never disappoints. The food on the other hand has been hit or miss on previous visits but our appetizers, cocktails and meal were very delicious last night. The service was quick and our waiter was on point. We all enjoyed our dinner at Ricks Boatyard!
It was wonderful! Hostess gave us a table with a beautiful view for our anniversary
Service was spotty. Server seemed to disappear for long period so waited quite a while for wine and check. Food was outstanding.
Wonderful place to celebrate our kids graduation. The food and staff were great.
Gooood foo. Good selection. Good atmosphere. Good service
Our server, David, was fantastic. Very attentive, fun and just did a great job. I would definitely recommend him. I had the eggs over Ireland (?) and they were good but I would have liked more potatoes…I only got 3-4 half potatoes. The eggs and the salmon were delicious!
Wait staff was unrefined; borderline slovenly, not unpleasant, but not pleasant.
Went for the first time during the lunch hour, super busy glad i made reservations! They have added some new menu items, there is a goat cheese appetizer that is amazing. I’m still missing my favorite the raspberry chicken but i went with the classic delicious catfish. Good, quick service. Ricks is always a must on a beautiful day.
There is plenty of room for outdoor dining with great views, awesome service staff and fantastic food.
Men’s room needed attention.
Value far above par.
Extremely busy during dinner rush so a bit slow this time. But service was excellent. Food always amazing and perfect sunset over the lake kept things pleasant. 1st weekend out for most everyone this year so you just roll with it. This place is the best feel good joint in all of Indy!!
Excellent experience, great fun , great view on the patio
Excellent everything! Great value and wonderful atmosphere too!
Love the outdoor dining over looking the water and service and food is spectacular.
49th wedding anniversary. Scott , our bartender / server out on the patio was fantastic. He was on top of his game.
Food was good. Waitperson, David, was informative and friendly. Enjoyed dining outside!
Best place to eat on the west side. Convenient to the interstate. The service is always good.
The food is fantastic but the server was little bit taking long to refill drinks .
Overall good service
I requested inside seating for a party of 6, however we were seated in the plastic-enclosed outdoor area. Next to us was a birthday party of approx 20 people who were so loud, we couldn't hear each other (sitting next to one another). I finally asked the server to move us to another table, but the noise was still very distracting. The food was excellent as always, and our server did the best she could to take our orders correctly over the noise. I would still recommend Rick's, but try not to get seated next to a large party if you want to enjoy your meal.
Mother’s Day dinner
We enjoyed a rainy Mother’s Day lunch at Rick’s Cafe. I enjoyed the chicken cordon bleu fingers and a baked potato. The 3 cordon bleu fingers were the perfect size for a meal for one. We also got 2 different salmon entrees: the salad and the pizza. Both were delicious. The salmon on the salad was huge! The other dish was a tasty 3 pepper chicken pasta dish that was quite filling. It was enough for 2 people. There was no bread service, which would have been nice for the pasta dish.
Great graduation dinner for our Son. Our waiter was wonderful!
We were really disappointed. We have eaten here before several times. The seafood was pretty bad. The tenderloin was dry and over cooked. The pizza was good, and the pulled pork sliders were good. Very expensive for average food. The server was wonderful and friendly.
Even on a rainy Mother's Day, Rick's Cafe Boatyard did not disappoint!!!
food was good but not great like is used to be not worth the $
Delicious meal with great service provided by Vanessa in an open and bright environment. Will be back when sunny and warm to enjoy a meal on the outdoor patio overlooking the water!
My food was delivered to our
Table 30 minutes after my son had been served. He was finished because I told him to start. The manager came out and said it would be out promptly and 20 minutes later I still did not have my food. The entrées were served in the middle of our salads. It was Mother’s Day and I was very disappointed. We spent $177.00 to not eat together.
Our server Steve (or Steven not sure) was AMAZING. He made our experience so wonderful and made my mother feel super special. 10/10
Made reservation and was seated promptly after arriving. Got a seat near the window looking over the water. Our drink order and hors duveres were taken and arrived prestty quickly. The food arrived and it was outstanding. Halfway through dinner, we got a call and needed to leave quickly and the waiter was very accomadating.
We have been dinning there for over 15 years and it is always good :)))))
The food could be seasoned better. Burt food is not smoked or cajun. The waitress was more occupied doing other things than to bring us the items we needed.
Everything was first rate. The host accommodated our special table request. Our server, Steve, was knowledgeable and friendly — and tolerant of our late arriving family members. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their food and the ambience. We look forward to our next visit.
Great food and fellowship with my Sisters in Christ. Nothing like being in person and not on Zoom.
College graduation celebration
Excellence food and good service
Great experience! Seated outside as requested. Celebrated two birthdays in our party! Service was terrific and my request to arrange to pay for the birthday girls was honored! Loved looking at the water too!!!
