This is a go-to place for super fresh seafood take out. We usually order the flounder platter and share it because there are generous portions of flounder and potato/fries. Order ahead and in the summertime the wait will be worth it, trust me !!!

The pope was in philly! And friends of ours came down and said why don't we all do crabs and clams from Ricks. They called the day before and asked if we could get the crabs cleaned!! Because we love eating them and picking them but with the shell off and cleaned!! They were delicious!!! And lined beautiful in tins!... More

Expect a long wait and take out only. Fortunately, I knew this ahead of time and planned accordingly. Food was ready at the time that was quoted over the phone. I had the french fried lobster tails, something I had never had before. Very good - lightly breaded and fried - but somewhat lacking in that sweet flavor of lobster... More

My husband and Dad went to Rick's for lunch on September 9th. They each had flounder sandwich. Dad said flounder was very fresh and delicious. They both enjoyed and will go again to try other items. All in all they both recommend.

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.
