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.

I won 2 gift cards for Ric's Grill in a golf tournament and I had never heard of this restaurant. We went to the 17th Ave location, and I was immediately disappointed in the decor - old and worn. Their website make their restaurant look very upscale. I guess the newer location downtown would have been a better choice. The... More

For the fifth straight year, we welcomed the New Year by sampling from Ric's four-course offerings. Evening starts with a glass of prosecco while we make our choices from a reasonable array of choices. With five of us dining, we get a good sampling of appetizers to share. I followed that with a marvelous lobster bisque. My main course of... More
