I stopped by Ricky P's Orleans Bistro last night. I have to start by saying that I took a vacation to New Orleans about a month ago, so my memories of the wonderful food in that city are pretty fresh. I went to Ricky P's because I thought it was one of the few places in town where I could... More

Love their seafood gumbo and boudin balls. Great atmosphere and service. On a great part of Central Avenue in downtown St. Pete, we slid into a booth with a view of Central and enjoyed wine and live music!

Fun menu, great brunch, family owned, amazing food and good service at a decent price. LOVE the outdoor seating but hate the dog bowls etc. Weekly Sunday ritual now!

This place is the closest thing to New Orleans in Florida. The food was very good and the menu selection was also very broad. Chicken, pork, beef and fowl are all available. My wife and I like the sandwiches. A Po-boy ( shrimp, oyster, or catfish are my favorites out of 10 others) for a quick lunch either for here... More

Our group has gotten tired of the same old same old and are on a quest to try new places each week. This weeks choice was Ricky P's. what a nice surprise. Service was good, large menu to choose from, reasonable prices and had a corking fee ( that's important to this group). Food all looked and tasted great. I... More

We were shopping on Central Ave and decided it was time for lunch. Ricky P's looked interesting so we gave it a try. What a wonderful surprise! The décor was great - definitely brought back fun memories of New Orleans. The food was great. Waitress suggested Crawfish Beignets for an appetizer. We shared Seafood Gumbo and a Muffaletto sandwich. Also... More

I will definitely return to this restaurant and plan to bring friends. The only thing this restaurant lacks is customers. The menu is expansive, the preparation is excellent, and everything is true to the cuisine and reasonably priced. The proprietor spared nothing in bringing a tired old building into a new life. Take your friends and go. New Orleans style... More

Did not live up to the hype for me. Had a lot of friend's talking about this place and for me it was a let down. The bartender was rude and hardly put any alcohol in our drinks. Ordered the grouper blackened and it came out fried or the poorest blackened I'd ever seen. It would have all been going... More
