Fabulous local legend

An interesting, genuine oyster shack on the outskirts of Orlando. Fantastic oysters and amazing value. Don't be put off by the outer appearance. You are here for the food, not a fancy room. The buckets are oysters are served at the bar and shucked for you. The other seafood offerings are... read more

Oysters were good a little big for my liking. Waiter was nice and gave good service. This is a hole in the wall. This is usually right up my alley but My family didn't like the fish and chips or chicken and fries they were bad.

When we first went to Lee and Rick's we were invited by a close friend who knew that we loved oysters. After one wrong turn we pulled in. This place is most definitely a dive in the BEST sense of the word. As a matter of fact, the locals (lovingly) have another name for it that I will not mention... More

Bucket of oysters is around $15.00. Shucked right in front of you while you slam them. Cold beer and a good time all around.

Great hidden treasure. Not fancy, but great food! We had the fried clams and the crawfish basket. Staff was friendly and helpful.

I am a oyster lover so maybe thats why I thought the oysters were just average. I had a dozen raw my husband's friend had them steamed. I thought the steamed was better then the raw ( Which is odd because I always like the raw better). Our friend thought they were good too. My husband and his friend had... More

Luckily we were taken to Lee & Ricks by some friends who live nearby otherwise we would never have found it. If you like oysters either raw or steamed & shrimp, this is the place to go. We arrived at about 9pm on a Monday night and the bar was almost deserted by 9 30 pm it was packed. The... More

Ok not the place for kids or couples. This place is the quintessential dive bar, but with great oysters. It's been a fixture in Orlando forever and it ain't broke don't fix it.
