Nice restaurant. Good selection of bourbons

Had dinner here with a large group (16) and they handled us very well. Considering hte size, there were only a few small issues that were handled well by the staff. Good bourbon tasting list, steaks were amazing, excellent side dishes. Place was a little tricky to find, maybe call them... read more

The restaurant was difficult to identify at night until one of our party got out of the car and knocked on what was the back door of the kitchen. Better signage and lighting of the existing sign would have helped. First time visitors will need a GPS that they will question. The restaurant is in the basement of a very... More

I called late on Saturday to make reservations for that same night and they were more than accommodating. We had a drink at the bar while they finished getting our table put together. The food was incredible. You either have to order the 11 cheese mac n cheese or the 11 cheese scalloped potatoes. Both were wonderful!

Nice atmosphere, but a little disappointed in food. Even though we ate fairly early they were out of some choices. The steak was highly recommended, but was only average....hard to get a proper medium rare

I love the rick house. Anytime there is a special occasion or a friend in from out of town, I make a point to come here. Whether its to eat my favorite meal (steak, scalloped potatoes, and salad) or to have a few drinks... it is always the best of time!

Mediocre service. A weird barkeep. (Couldn't make a rye sour..) Okay food. It's a cute restaurant, though.

We asked some locals where we should go for dinner on a Saturday evening. The Rickhouse was not on their list. After reviewing the "Dining Guild" we chose the Rickhouse. Very hard to find, signage is minimal and hard to see. I was looking forward to a sampling of Bourbons; I understood from an ad that Bourbon was one of... More

In town on business. From previous reviews seemed like a good place for a steak and a couple of drinks. Sat at the bar and ordered a popular brand of whiskey with coke. I was informed that the only bartender was on vacation. They couldn't find what I ordered and didn't know enough to offer something similar. I asked about... More

Kind of hard to find in the dark. It's across the street from the municipal building. As you're looking at the restaurant's building, the entrance to the Rickhouse is on the left side - you walk down steps, the restaurant is partially below grade. Nice place. Kind of upscale rustic. Before we went, we were waiting for our traveling companions... More
