Good lunch food

We here for lunch with a few Friends, the selection is great. The food was good and the atmosphere and location is very good. Very close to the Tampa Bay Bucs Stadium. I have never been to New Orleans so I can't say if the food is authentic. But I will eat here again.

I am from south Louisiana and took my family here as I heard it was supposed to be really good. We ordered different entres so we could try different items. I'm sorry to say that not any of the food we received came anywhere close to being authenic cajun. The entire meal was almost inedible and I will never again... More

They advertise authentic cajun food but don't quite get there. The fried shrimp, oysters and flounder we had were very good but those aren't cajun dishes. We also had their file gumbo, their red beans and rice and their étouffée and none of them measured up to New Orleans standards. Service was good but would not return to this restaurant... More

The food, service and atmosphere is excellent. Ricky Parsons has brought a bit of authentic New Orleans fare to downtown St. Petersburg.

We stopped by the restaurant after a recent Ray’s game. My wife and I shared a large Louisiana Seafood Platter which had shrimp, crab cakes, fish, and oysters. The platter was mostly blackened and was more than enough to satisfy our moderate appetites. It was our first visit to Ricky P's and we will likely return again as the food,... More

I am a regular to this establishment when in need of some Cajun comfort food. Great local ownership and real Louisiana home cooking! The building is a two story with a New Orleans feel - even painted purple and gold inside! Located close to Tropicana Field, Ricky P's offers free parking for their dinner guests - great spot to party... More

A group of us dined at Ricky P's Thursday night. It was very unpleasant. My shrimp cocktail appetizer was disappointing; the shrimp were limp and mushy, and not even the half-decent cocktail sauce could disguise the fact that they were over-boiled. My salad with fried chicken and the house balsamic vinaigrette was okay, but really, it should have been served... More

My wife and I decided to go to St Petersburg to watch the fireworks at Straub Park since the kids were Jammin in Jamaica. We found a Bed and Breakfast on Beach Drive for the night and off to "the Burg" we went. We made lunch plans with my sister and thought Bodega would be a good place BUT they... More

What a great time we had at Ricky P's restaurant for the Jazz Brunch on Sunday before the Ray's game. I went to High School with Ricky at Rummel High School in New Orleans and it was great to see him and enjoy some New Orleans cuisine while in Florida.
