Atmosphere is great!

Good quality is inconsistent-good one time and not the next but it is a very fun place. A must in Sneads Ferry!

Ok...I am a die hard Steelers fan who was born with a TERRIBLE TOWEL. That being said we drove by here for 7 years of staying on Topsail without eating here. Figured it was just another Carolina Ale House etc. My wife and I were standing in the surf by the Surf City pier talking about where to go for... More

We are from PA, so that is what first caught our eye when we were looking for places to dine out... I recommend trying the cheese skewers and any of their sandwich selection... Absolutely delicious!!! Try and save... More

Been here several times now and always find something new on the menu to try. Good beer selection, lots of TVs for sports events and nice attentive wait staff. Nice variety of food.

Rick's is a Sunday tradition for us, and it doesn't disappoint. April was our server again, and again her service and attitude made the visit worthwhile. Good food, good drinks, sports, friends...perfect place.

The Clam Chowder at Rick's is the best I have ever had. Always great flavor with lots of potatoes and clams. Catch of the day was Swordfish, blackened with cream sauce, amazing! April was out server and she was awesome! She recommended the Swordfish and her overall service is the best at Rick's!

This is our go to place after a day in the Topsail Beach area. This Restuarant knows how to prepare and cook its complete menu, to perfection. The service, April our waitress, was also, excellent. It's a local clean, casual and friendly place. We were a bit hesitant on a football playoff Sunday afternoon but was pleasantly surprised to find... More

We are locals who stopped in Rick's mid afternoon for lunch. No one was in the main dining room and no one greeted us so we walked into the bar area. The bar maid was taking money from a fellow and the only other people in there was one couple eating and drinking at the bar. We took a booth... More

Excellent meal again and great service from April. Everything was served promptly, in fact we were extremely surprised by how fast everything got to us. We have been coming to Rick's for the last 6 years and have recommended it to other people. The only problem is that whole Steelers thing. Go Bengals! Thanks again April. Good luck on the... More
