We were there this evening for dinner. It was my husbands birthday. The food and service was outstanding as always. ❤️🎉
This was the best dining experience I have had in a while. Our waitress Aubrey was refreshing! Excellent service and Food. Top notch Establishment. Thank you Aubrey!
Pleasantly surprised with the new menu items. Definite improvement in presentation also. Really enjoyable meal. Looking forward to the views this summer.
We had such a great time here and we were accommodated so well!
Always great. I’m fact, Rick’s seems to get better and better. We had various diet needs from vegetarian to carnivore and the menu pleased us all.
I took my husband out for his birthday just the 2 of us. We had a reservation but arrived early and they got us a table in less than 5 minutes. We were treated so well by our waiter Eric. He was attentive but allowed us time to enjoy ourselves. We were seated across from the bar and enjoyed chatting with the manager who stopped to check on us as well and Eric and the bartender who by the way was absolutely amazing. The staff were all very kind and seem like they were all having a great time. The food was cooked perfectly. Worth every penny!
We will definitely be back!
Filets and Ribeye all three were overcooked. Requested only one steak to be replaced with the correct medium rare temp. Sat on a corner aisle table in a high traffic area. A soup was offered for issue with overcooked steak and replacement meal came out after others in party were done eating and ready to leave. Never pleasant to eat dinner after the others are done but prefer to do instead of eating a medium well ribeye.
The staff were so friendly, the view over the lake beautiful despite we were there on a rainy day. I ordered the Jumbo Shrimp pasta and it was delicious!
Excellent experience with Open Table reservations, worked like a charm!
Food was fantastic, service was great and overall atmosphere was wonderful!
Nothing can beat this location - especially on the patio. Food is just ok and our cocktails seemed watered down. Stick to the basics with food and drink here and enjoy the view.
Good food, strong drinks, but service was average. Beautiful views but very loud on the deck - due to deck construction mainly, but also generally loud with people talking/chatting.
We didn’t get to sit outside, weather was cool and wet, no fault of Ricks but effected the ambiance of our evening out. The food was good but not great for the price. I will be back on a better weather day to enjoy the outdoor deck.
Amazing food! Great service! Very clean bathrooms!
We went to celebrate my wife's 32nd birthday. Everything was great!
Rick's is the perfect setting for a romantic lunch or dinner or a meet up with old friends. It's an idyllic setting with a vacation vibe. A west side gem on Eagle Creek Reservoir.
Beautiful view—right on the water, and right around sunset!!!!
Everything was great!! The atmosphere is always nice.
The pulled pork nachos and the Salmon Rollades are my go-to every time I dine at Rick’s. Also, the garlic vinaigrette dressing is excellent. They also offer a wonderful selection of wine.
Horrible, stuck up service. They switch alcohols on you unless you catch them. The entire team, including manager Johathan Osborn, have zero respect for customer.
Very good experience. I will recommend and continue to return myself.
Amazing service and very fast response times. Food was fantastic as always! Great place to have a date or little get together!!!
We had a party of 9 , all family, and we were seated at the perfect table outside in a intimate corner for Easter dinner. Our server was patient with all of us! I would love to see some whole food plant based options other than the limited offerings. This would influence me to frequent more often. Ambiance is outstanding.
Staff was undermanned for Easter holiday. It was 30 min before we had a drink order
or glass of water.
Brought a friend in from Texas
We were able to sit on the patio on Easter Sunday and enjoyed a really good meal and drinks. A very pleasant experience.
We made reservations for Easter brunch! The outdoor patio was gorgeous! We had fun with all the brunch drinks and food choices! Love coming here for special occasions.
It's very nice outside abs friendly staff burr the brunch is very bland. This is a nice old people place to eat.
We made a reservation for our 1st anniversary and we had a wonderful time. We were seated immediately and our service was excellent. The food was very good and I thought the prices were good. I had the fisherman’s platter which was really good and a great dish to get if you want to try different types of seafood. My girlfriend had the 5 pepper fettuccini and she loved it.
Birthday dinner. Only issue was it was a little warm. Food and service were awesome as always!
Birthday beautiful setting great food and drinks
The food was all very good...steaks cooked properly, temperatures on everything just right, all very flavorful! We were very happy to see the one pound of chocolate cake dessert was back on the menu, as it is always a fave. The views are always a bonus here as well.
Mimosa towers, appetizers, and salads for a girls day! Amazing service!
The staff was extremely polite and timely. I ordered the fried catfish and it was outstanding. It melted in your mouth and the portion was just right. Catfish may not be the most desirable fish out there, but the way it was prepared knocked it out of the park. The only problem I encountered was that I was too full to order dessert. I guess I will be going back next time I'm in the Indy area!
We had Jeff as our server and he was AMAZING. So kind, answered all of our questions about the menu and always was available when we needed him. We will definitely be back and hope to have Jeff again as our server!
I always enjoy dining at Rick's, whether for date night or a girls get together. Usually I sit outside on the patio but since it was a little cooler we had dinner inside. Great ambiance and large picture windows still make for a decent view of Eagle Creek reservoir.
Decent selection of seafood dishes and always filling.
Fantastic meal. Lovely view of eagle creek with amazing meal. Very nice! Professional and attentive service. Highly recommend!
Took my mom for her birthday. She had never been, but heard good things from me. I prayed please don't let me down Rick's! I hate to brag about a place and then it's a disaster for whomever I take there. Service, food, the view..everything was perfect! My mom is elderly and they were SO patient with her! She's already asking when I'm taking her back LOL!
We had not been back for years and really enjoyed this visit. It was hands down better than our last and we will come back much sooner.
Surprised Gf with dinner at Rick's, our spot where we first met and come back for special dinners. Everything was good, as usual. Our waitress and the food service was great.
Only thing to add is : BRING BACK THE OYSTERS ROCKEFELLER!!! For years Rick's has had the best tasting in the city and they've just changed it. Please bring it back...
