Not what I expect from Ricky's

The restaurant is run down and dirty. There is substantial dust/dirt and cobwebs in visible areas like lighting, trim/facia and pony walls. The booth we sat at had duct tape concealing a rip in the vinyl. The service was mediocre, and food was just okay. I will not be visiting this location... read more

Four of us stopped in for dinner and I think we all enjoyed each other's company. However the service at this location was not good. First they did not have a menu item that I wanted to order (blueberry pie). Secondly, when my uncle went to order nachos they said they were just kettle chips which was lame. Thirdly the... More

My wife and I went for dinner one night. I was in the mood for breakfast for dinner so I ordered the eggs breakfast bowl. The meal was awful, way too salty, to the point I ate less than half of it, very little ingredients in it, toast was stone cold. When I mentioned this to our server, the response... More

Going to the Ricky's in Ladysmith one shouldn't expect a lot however the food takes way too long to get out and the food is mediocre at best. Had their eggs hollandaise during a bad hangover and I can confidently say that it was a terrible decision.

Stopped a week ago for light supper with friends.Food was ok but service needs to improve.We had just came back from a month of travelling in Virginia Tennesee Alabama Georgia and N&S Carolina. The food was great and lots of variation of food.Guess I was a little spoiled and expected to much from a local restaurant.

Typical franchise food. Nothing special. A bit pricey for what you get. Also frequent changes in the menu are not helpful.

Myself and daughter were traveling through ladysmith and we were starving.We decided to stop here for some lunch. I wasn't expecting to be blown away just figured it a better choice then drive through fast-food. Entering we were not greeted. Observed three women notice us and not one come over to seat us. One did eventually. Very unfriendly (you could... More

My partner and I went for breakfast , which find is a difficult meal for restauranteurs if you order eggs. My partner asked for CRISP bacon, and when it came, OF COURSE the bacon was flabby. Not going back there again.
