Poboys, Crawfish, Shrimp. Gumbo. All great and tasted like New Orleans specialties. Alot closer than taking a trip to Nawlins for food. Gotta try Ricky P's to check it out.

Ricky P's in St. Petersburg is a fun and perfect way to enjoy fabulous creole food before catching a Rays game at nearby Tropicana Field. All of the food we have tried has been delicious ! The crab cakes are to die for and the dill sauce with them is so good. The Po' Boys are huge and yummy. The... More

I tend to be too hard on New Orleans restaurants because I lived there for 7 years. So i try the traditional items to rate the restaurants and this one fell flat. They have beignets on Sunday --- the dough was too thick and gooey on the inside - still it's fried dough (they do that at the fair too)... More

Loved this place on 4th St in St Pete. Tryed them on Central and was VERY unhappy. Pork Po Boy was all cold slaw ( not hardly any pork. The Turkey Po Boy was ONE thin slice of Turkey and tomato and mayo. I could not believe how bad these Po Boys were. The highlight was the bread for $10.00.... More

Easter Sunday brunch was tasty thanks to Ricky P's. The seating outside was comfortable. It was easy to get a seat outside. Enjoyed the french toast. French bread was used to make the toast. Warm maple syrup on the side. My guest enjoyed a fluffy cheese omelet. The potatoes on the side were too greasy for me. The brunch included... More

Atmosphere is relaxing but classy. Definitely the best cajun food I've found in this area. Growing up in the South definitely makes one picky when it comes to Etouffee and PoBoys. Even the Gumbo here is pretty good. Crawfish are pricey and not very big. But that's good reason to visit home once in a while!

Stumbled on this restaurant after we tried a near-by place that did not have any indoor seating. Lunch was a delight. Red beans and rice with andouille sausage was tasty and very satisfying. Went back for dinner, the same night, and were a little disappointed. Had chocolate pecan pie and it tasted like it had been nuked, not warmed in... More
