We ordered delicious seafood dinners from here during our recent Wildwood visit - clams, shrimp, stone crab claws. It's best to order early to be sure you get your food when you want it. I would definitely order from here again!

By far the best seafood in Wildwood. Large portions at very reasonable prices. Take out only, but that's okay because you will not enjoy a better meal in any sit down restaurant.

Rick's has the freshest seafood in Wildwood...the class on the half shell, salmon, crabs, flounder, shrimp, everything was delicious and the staff is very friendly. Of course we took crabs and fresh salmon back to NY as usual. You gotta go there!

The best seafood in all of Wildwood and some of the best you will find anywhere. I have eaten here for years and Rick's is real treat. The best freshest seafoods prepared wonderfully whether fried or broiled. They have relatively long lead times but it is well worth it !

I recommend the extra large shrimp cocktail in the case, sweet & crisp. ( the appetizer on menu states jumbo shrimp , 6 for $10, however this was medium size... More

This is a fish market with a few picnic tables and umbrellas for you to eat there if you wish, and their cooked meals are a great option to traditional seafood restaurant take out in terms of quality, freshness and creativity. On a rainy vacation day we decided to eat in and make some crab sauce with pasta as a... More
