I had been to Ricks a few years ago, and friends had told me to have the Clam Chowder and it was great. I just visited Ricks again and the clam chowder was excellent just like it was back then, I highly recommend Ricks..

My wife and I spent Thanksgiving on North Topsail Beach, NC. We returned to Rick's and we both were impressed at the changes in menu and the expertise of the chef in both preparation and presentation. The appetizers are wonderful and the seafood entrees great. We ate at Rick's several times during our visit and everything was excellent. The waitstaff... More

I was visiting from MD and took my granddaughters to one of my favorite places to eat in Sneads Ferry. I happened to stop on the night they had Swordfish as the dinner special. This was the second time I have been lucky enough to have this entree and was not disappointed. All the food on the menu is excellent... More

My husband and I have lived in the area for about five years and have consistently been eating at Rick's. We always bring friends and family, especially on Trivia Tuesday and for live music, and we always have a wonderful time. April has been our server on multiple occasions and she is wonderful! We'll be requesting her for our future... More

An enjoyable local place with great food. And wow, the portions are large. We had the ahi tuna and it was prepared perfectly. The chicken parm dinner was huge and delivered as ordered. The wait staff is really on their game. Go and have fun.

My husband , two adult sons and I went to Ricks on a Tuesday in November. We had a delicious crunchy onion appetizer where the onions where thinly sliced and fried and served with a creamy sauce. Get this. Better than onion rings. My blackened salmon was just right, moist and tasty with the rub. The clam chowder was raved... More

Service was great and our steaks were the best. It can be really busy so make sure you call ahead. We went once early around 5 and had no wait, but later on our second visit and waited a fair amount. There is a nice porch to wait and have a drink.
