We've been coming to Topsail several years and have loved this food more than others! The seafood was fresh and well prepared! The service was great, thanks Tiffany! Linda, one of the owners, stopped by and was very welcoming. Thursday night had live entertainment and was very good! If you like crab dip and shrimp, try them out. Soooo good!!... More

My fiancé, his mother, and I were on a weekend vacation and decided to try Ricks. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone and everyone. My salmon dish was the best I've had in a restaurant ever! And my fiancé and his mother ordered the mussels as an appetizer and both said they were to die for! We will definitely... More

Awesome place! Our meal ended up on our table before our appetizers, that's how fast they were. All the food was excellent and very affordable. Ask for April! Best server I've ever had. She made it a great experience for my wife and I :)

Our group of five enjoyed a great meal here on Memorial Day. It was a busy, friendly place with good food and good service. It was a casual place but the menu was a few steps above typical sports bar fare. The shrimp quesadilla got a thumbs up, as did the wings, crab cake sandwich, and burgers. We'll come back... More

A decent menu. Had a waitress who always wanted to touch me; I don't like that familiarity at all. Had the fish and chips. Fish really good but too much for one person. Fries had way too much salt, salad had no taste at all.

Ate here twice in one week - everyone had something different and all were very satisfied. Wait staff were friendly, drink specials and dinner specials. Steaks were fantastic as was seafood and desserts

Went to Rick's for lunch on 5/15/2015. The food was great and our server April was fantastic. You have to try the Dirty Bird sandwich with their homemade chips loaded with cheese and bacon. My wife had the crab cakes with the pineapple salsa and thought they were amazing. For an appetizer we had the crab dip and for dessert... More

Ricks has great fresh tasting seafood. The appetizers are wonderful as well as desserts. Excellent service and atmosphere. They have a bar but it's a family friendly restaurant. Will return on next trip.
