Our family loves fresh shrimp and Rick's sells the best we have ever eaten. It pays to call ahead and order your shrimp, we get them raw and for only $ 1.00 more per pound, they will do the deveining and cleaning. Be prepared for a bit of a wait. The phone and kitchen are crazy busy but each... read more

My husband and I bought a condo about 1/2 mile from Rick's Seafood back in January and have been renovating it every other weekend. We have been ordering consistently from Rick's since. It started because they were one of the only restaurants open on the weekends in Wildwood. We passed this place many times and never gave it a second... More

First time at Rick's. It is basically a take out but there are benches on the side of the building. Went off season for crabs. Crabs were good for the price - a dozen for $25. They were already cooked and cold. I prefer them hot. In season, I understand you have to call 3-4 hours ahead to place on... More

This is a take out. Call way in advance for time frames on how long you will wait for your order to be picked up. Ricks is a traditional must have. Great seafood. Love the scallops, king crab, shrimp, lobster bisque & old bay chicken wings!

I've been visiting Rick's for the past 3 years and wish I had found it sooner. Consistently good food and friendly staff. You will not be disappointed here, however you need to plan/call way ahead on holiday and in-season weekends, as the wait times can reach 2+ hours. They have 2 picnic tables out back that you can use to... More

Four of us ordered seafood to go. Everything was excellent except the lobster tails, a little too tough. Portions were very generous. Will definitely go back!

We pick up fresh seafood from the every year. The scallops are my absolute favorite. And they are huge! We had some shrimp and flounder from here this year too. Couldn't taste any fresher! A must have

I am always looking for a spot to get some nice size local crabs. I generally enjoy Large and if possible, jumbo blue crabs. This year has been a challenge to get crabs but Ricks has been the spot. If you wish, they come already cooked. I like to get the live and steam myself. I also ordered some jumbo... More

If you want a great seafood meal, with healthy portions of clams, crabs, flounder etc. Rick's is the best takeout in Wildwood. Great way to feed a large family. Only caveat is you need to order your meal before 3 pm to get something ready by 5:30 - 6 pm
