We have been to this restaurant many many times and were very pleased to see that the service and food quality have remained! On our visit, we enjoyed shrimp cocktail, corn and crab chowder, grouper served with seafood gumbo, and for kids- fish nuggets. All in all, each of us was very pleased with the food quality-- fresh taste and... More

After a full day of travel we called and asked if seating was available outside. It's first come first serve order at the bar, but the bar tender was great. Food was hot and fish claimed to be locally sourced. Certainly not fancy but did the trick at a decent price. Wait staff is friendly. Great for pool side food... More

Ricks is attached to the condo that we were renting (surfside resort). We called in an order after a long lazy beach day. We were going to literally walk down the hall to pick it up. But the server who answered the phone graciously offered to deliver it. The fried pickles were very good, as well as the fish tacos.... More

We got suckered into this place twice. the first time we chalked up to a bad day, but when it was just as bad the 2nd time around we swore it off. Do yourself a favor, save your money and don't go. Have nothing nice to say about this place.

This was by far the best place to go and have a good time and eat. Everyone was so nice and we even saw people bring in fish they caught and the restaurant cleaned and cooked it for them! They had great karaoke poolside!

This place is not nice at all, not a good place for a date. The decor is from around 1989, and worn out and nasty looking. Bathroom was gross, when you are getting towels the door slams into you. There is a good view from some of the tables, but the glass is not very clear at all. Now for... More

I had steamed seafood and it was not steaming hot when they brought in, a bit overcooked but the worse could be that I noticed that our server's hand were so dirty!! I was so grossed out!! His hands looked like he's been working on his car and he didn't get a chance to wash. Its unacceptable for someone having... More

We ate at Rick's several times during our stay in December 2013. Food was always great as was the staff. It is so convenient if staying in Surfside to have a restaurant in the building.

My mother and I ate here on our trip to Florida per a recommendation on tripadvisor. Finding parking was a bit tricky since the restaurant is in a condo building and you aren't allowed in the parking garage. It was dark, so we could not see a view, thought it looks like the restaurant might overlook the ocean. I don't... More
