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.

My girlfriend, daughter and I have visited this location several times and each time it's a different disappointment. Poor service, unfriendly servers/atmosphere and the food always makes us use the bathroom (not in a good way). Not to mention one particular staff is very harsh whilst training a new employee. Overall I'd advise McDonald's to be a better option to... More

Though Ricky's has a good basic menu, my husband and just wanted a coffee. It was mid afternoon and cold out, so we thought we'd look out over the ocean and a cup of java. Though there is a McDonalds, we wanted to just sit in a booth. That was a wrong choice. The service was just o.k., though we... More

Nothing fancy, just basic Ricky's food. I like the variety on the menu and the place is in a very easily accessible location off Hwy 1 in Coronation Mall.

Waited almost an hour for food. The staff was not friendly, in fact they made us feel unwelcome. When the food finally did arrive, it was terrible. Clearly it had been sitting under a heat lamp for some time. I had maybe 2oz of roasted turkey on my plate and green beans swimming in butter. This of course after I... More

Food was good, service was great and I believe they actually were glad to have us eat there. Would consider eating there more often if I lived in the area.

When I lived in Ladysmith, I used to take some one to this restaurant every Thursday morning for breakfast for a treat for them. The service was quick, polite and the food was good as well.. The person I took was special needs and does make some noise on occasion, but the staff was fine with it and never a... More
