The best in Sneads Ferry!

Rick's is hands down the best restaurant in Sneads Ferry. It has a great atmosphere that would appeal to families and bar folk alike. You have to try the clam chowder, it's the best I've ever had!

Was our first visit...and can't wait to go back! April, our server, was fantastic with food selections and area information. The homemade potato chips are delicious, as well as the crab cake sandwich. We are looking forward to future visits!
