It was a beautiful day and we were lucky enough to get a table outside the bar (tables are very tall and with me being 5' tall the edge of the table was pretty close to my chin - I had no problem eating though 😃). Our waiter Levi came right out, took our drink order and gave us our... More

I ate at Mr. Ricks a couple of days ago with a friend. We had the mahi mahi fish tacos and sunburst sandwich. I would rate our food as great!! I have to say that it was rather noisy but kind of expected it cuz we sat inside rather than out on the patio which would have been our first... More

Mr Rick's is a good beach bar, great food and great drinks. They have live music which is catered toward an older crowd. They keep the doors open so you get some nice air flow. Worth checking out.

Great place to hang out, have drinks and enjoy music on the beach. Decent prices, large selecttion of beers, wine and good drinks. The food is brought in from the restaurant next door. We didn't eat but our friends did and said they liked it. We always stop in when in the area.

Nice place to relax after a morning of golf. Plenty of TV's to watch football games or watch the waves roll in. Clean, friendly staff and patio seating provides and excellent view of beach. Food was good and reasonable priced.

We stayed over night at Sycamore Mineral Springs. Their Staff recommended. The Bar scene is very cool, the Bartender was very friendly. Drinks were good and so was the food. We enjoyed the beach front seating. Absolutely perfect view of the Beach and Pier. We will most definitely be returning soon!

Loved the outdoor seating and casual environment. Good food and drinks. Service was good and it was a busy day. Very casual and easy going place. Fun decor inside.

Great seating outside to enjoy the view of the ocean (across the street). Friendly bouncers. If you are having a beer you're fine. I tried a lemon drop martini...no bueno. Then I had a Mai Tai...the worst I've ever had. They had good music playing, with the annoying habit of cutting off songs in the middle. We wouldn't be excited... More

They serve alcohol but not food during later hours. This place could be more with their location, but does not aspire to be anything more than a bar. A "poor" use of their location.
