Review of Rics Grill

The view is great, the food is good, the service is good, but it is very expensive. Can not afford to eat there on a pensioner's income, so we don't.

Service is quick, friendly and very good. Ordered the grilled chicken on a bun with a salad on the side and the food was great, well cooked and tasty.

The food that I had was excellent (butter chicken) and others in the group said their food was also very good - most had a hoisin chicken stir fry. There were no complaints from any of... More

The best item on the Sunday brunch menu? The view! In the winter, you can see the Rocky Mountains on the western horizon. The stunning profile of Chief Mountain in Montana is clearly on a clear day, and Lethbridge specializes in clear, sunny days. The restaurant is in need of some renovations. Painted surfaces are chipped, and the carpets are... More

Thank you for your review. You may be pleased to know Ric's Grill has changed Sunday brunch from buffet to al la carte so all brunch items are now served hot and fresh and to order.

It was a water tower in the heart of the city remodeled so the view is excellent as is the food. But expect to pay above average. If your priority is excellent food with great preparation then go, you will enjoy it.
