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 !

Ordered a couple of times throughout the wk. First order for some reason was just ok. 2nd order for dinner was amazing! As usual, the way we normally get 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

Several times in the summer our family gathers for "Crab Night".Rick's is our "go to" place for all the seafood…blue claw crabs, snow crabs, steamed clams, raw oysters, sautéed shrimp, and shrimp cocktail. We provide the corn and beer!! We have never been... 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

We have been going to Rick's for our seafood for over 10 years. Since the first meal we have never been disappointed. From the outside the place looks like a shack, don't be fooled. From their tiny kitchen they produce the best seafood ever. Portions are large. If you are going in July or August the wait will be extremely... More

Our family of five ordered seafood from Ricks and loved everything!! Husband said the clams were best he's eaten! Between us we loved the stuffed flounder, clams, shrimp & linguini, stone crabs, scallops and shrimp! Order early as they are very busy...trust us, it's worth the wait!!

We stay in Wildwood NJ for vacation and at least one if not two nights we have to pick up food at Rick's Seafood. The melt in your mouth crab cakes. (My mouth is watering just thinking about them). We usually get the seafood platter...lots of food for the price. Also get the 50 cooked shrimp for an excellent price.... More

Outstanding food and a reasonable price. Only one table outside but they pack it up to go and we take it to the beach or hotel and feast.
