I had booked the private dinning room back in May. They have a policy where you have to place a $250 deposit down that would be taken off the final bill of the event. Well this did not happen. It is now well over a month from when my event took place on June 27 and I still have not... More

The breakfast buffet was good, it had a variety of selections, well cooked, nothing overly spectacular. The real standout was my server Julie, she went above and beyond to ensure that my meal was just what I wanted / needed to get my day started. It added a little extra that makes me want to come back.

We had a lovely evening at Rics. We both had steaks which were excellent along with French onion soup and clam chowder for starters, also very good. Server was very attentive and we didn't feel rushed at all. Prices were a little high but the quality was worth it. We would definitely return again.

I ordered a sandwich for dinner(not very hungry), & had a pint of Ale & several glasses of Ice Water, spent a few hours there people watching, & was treated like Royalty. Most other restaurant/bars are impatient with patrons who linger after their meal, but not this one. I felt very comfortable & relaxed & welcome. I would recommend this... More

I went into Ric's because it was close to my hotel and it was cold out.....I was met by a gentleman who showed me to a table with absolutely no emotion.....and walked away without enlightening me to specials or most anything...He was replaced by a very pleasant server, who immediately pointed out the house specials, beer on special and on...

Ric's grill to me has a limited menu and the pricing for the type of food is more than what I would have anticipated.

Very good and you get a %10 discount if you stay at the Best Western Suites on the next block. The Bison burger is fantastic.
