Great food. Nice to be able to go out again.
Nice view of the lake. Pleasant staff. Food was great.
Rico's dip, great as always! Beautiful view of Eagle Creek.
Our server’s suggestions were excellent from cocktails to entree
Food was delicious and staff was very kind! We had a great time.
The food was great, The service was good, but the restaurant was a little chilly inside.
The setting on the patio was very pleasant. Spacing of the tables met all the requirements put forth by the state. Food was good, but the service was very poor. I never did receive my chowder, and had to have it removed from the bill. Return trips to check on us was very sparse.
This is definitely a place to visit when you can be outside to enjoy the waterfront view. Delicious food, just wish we would've gotten a better table for having made a reservation 2 weeks in advance. If would've made our seat inside, with a nice view, that would've made this visit outstanding.
The food was awesome and the server was one of the best I’ve ever had. Thanks Adrianna great job
Excellent as always.
Exceptionally great service. Food was excellent, coffee was fresh. View at sunset lovely! What a wonderful evening out. Cuban chicken a little dry tonight but not Terrible. Warm bread with honey butter is to die for! Wow! I could have eaten the whole loaf! Yum. Highly recommend for an elegant fun evening out
Excellent evening at Rick’s. Great food, amazing view and phenomenal service (thank you, Steve)!
Nice atmosphere. Nice view -- we looked out over Eagle Creek reservoir. We had a nice view of the sunset. Food was good but not as good as last time we were there in December. Server was nice and polite but not particularly knowledgeable, especially with regard to the wine selections. Good enough for a return visit.
Pricey, but the food and service were good. We will definitely try it again when the weather permits outdoor dining. Beautiful scenery.
everything was great...price, food, dining & the experience
Ricks is a usual stop for us. We couldn’t make our minds up for dinner and knew ricks would be a hit. I had the Cajun catfish with the tomato rice which was amazing. My fiancé had the Buffalo chicken sandwich his favorite. We were sat right away and treated kindly, even though we arrived 20 minutes before close. Service was great. Thanks again for a great night out ricks.
Great Food, Great Service, will be going back real soon!
Great food and beautiful view- even in the winter!
Great atmosphere. Food delicious. Will be coming back again.
What a great location! Right on the water. Perfect ambiance. Perfect menu selection. Great service. Great atmosphere!
The food was expertly prepared and very flavorful. Service was great, attentive but not hovering. Adult beverages were brought quickly and fit the bill
Went to Ricks for Valentines day.
Soup special said Vegetable soup; was served tomato soup. Waiter didn't know the soup special changed
Ordered Chicken parm; received just pasta no chicken. Waiter corrected it but what I received was a piece of grilled chicken on top of the pasta.
We sat next to the bar. I am not usually offended by foul language but the waiters, waitresses, and busing staff gathering around the bar area were very loud.
Not a great first time experience but I bet the view is incredible during the summer time.
The experience was great and our waiter was excellent. Thanks and we will be back.
the food is always great no mater what we order. the staff is fantastic always helpful. the wait time for our reservation was very little time and it was a busy time .
We have dined here several times over the years and were not disappointed again. The covid rules were distracting but that's the way it is.
The food is always great. Our server was wonderful.
We went to Rick’s for Valentine’s Day! The service was timely and the staff was pleasant. Food was tasty, and came as described on the menu. It does tend to get loud inside of the restaurant, otherwise, no complaints.
Our waiter was late coming to our table he apologized which was fine but we should not have been sitting as long as we were.
Great place highly recommend. Delicious food & wonderful service👌
Valentines Day with my Wife
EXCELLENT FOOD, EXCELLENT SERVICE, CLEAN, AND STAFF WAS FRIENDLY
I've been here before many times and the reason we go to Rick's Cafe Boatyard is to dine in the downstairs and enjoy views of the lake. I understand it was a busy day (Valentine's Day) but we got absolutely HOSED with the table they sat us at. Upstairs in the wedding hall which is an extra room they must use on busy days to accommodate more people. We had no window view at all. It was a white wall where there used to be a security box that was painted over. The table was also very wobbly. We heard the hostess at least ask every other couple/family entering the room if they would like a window view. We weren't even given the chance. Very, very disappointing. The food was ok. Our waitress was fantastic. I'm not one to complain at all (we did not mention anything to our waitress...not her fault) but I will never go back to Rick's again.
It was very cold but stairs,no music or pic,my first time there it looked like a warehouse up stairs,services was horrible never ask if we wanted a refill food was warm when we got it
Ricks Cafe Boatyard is my favorite restaurant. Everything on the menu is delicious. Service is fast. The people who work there are very nice. Beautiful view. There’s nothing bad i can say about Ricks.
We had a great time, the food was hot and delicious.
It was Valentines Day, and very busy. Service was a bit slower than usual. We had to remind our server about requests a couple of times. It's not that she was just standing around. She was very busy.
Food was wonderful with amazing service. Have always loved Ricks!
Great food and service! It was our first visit and it definitely won’t be our last!!!
