Where should we have a meal

Ever looked at each other and can't decide what to eat as neither wants to cook? We were like that and Ricky's answered the call. Clean, lots on the menu, reasonably priced, efficient service and good food. When we are in doubt, Ricky's is the place here in Ladysmith!!

This is a great restaurant for a family meal and or a meeting for coffee. The breakfast that I had was very good with a large portion. The staff was very friendly and the restaurant and washrooms were very clean. Thanks

Visited Ricky's yesterday for a late lunch. Party of 3, each ordered a different item for extensive menu. All stated excellent. I had the lasagna, arrived very large portion and one of the best flavoured pastas I have had in a long time. My wife ordered Veal with mushroom gray. She stated... wonderful mushroom gravy. Our guest had a vegetarian... More

I came to Ricky's with a friend during Vacation to Ladysmith. It was a Wednesday evening, and there were perhaps 1 or 2 other tables filled, so it was fairly empty. We were in no hurry whatsoever, but were surprised by how slow the service seemed to be. I ordered a Caesar salad with grilled chicken, and the salad was... More

Great Prime Rib on the weekends but no seniors discount :( otherwise generally good food value. Patio is good if you are with a dog as it is completely in the shade.

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 again.

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
