Great!

**********Great food and atmosphere!!! My family has been coming to Topsail for at least 10 years. We have always wondered about Rick' but never stopped because they always seemed so busy (which is a good thing). We assumed the wait would be too long since we have a large group.

The wait staff is nice. The Food was GREAT the best steak. Go early, they get busy quick. This is the firs time that I have gone out and gotten my steak cooked like I asked for and perfect! I ask for well done and it was, it was still tender and the seasoning was excellent. The sweet tea was... More

We wandered north out of Topsail for the afternoon and came across Rick's. Got to say, it's a good one. Food was tops, service was solid and the prices are in line with other restaurants in the region. Just don't blink as you can easily pass it by!

We had supper on a Thursday evening and the place was packed. One of the owners, Linda, pitched in and helped get our drinks - our server Lori said she is the best boss she has ever had in 40 years. 2 of our party had crab cakes and they were stuffed with crab! One had a salad with lots... More

Whenever my husband and I visit my retired parents in Sneads Ferry we always go to Rick's at least once. We like to sit at the bar and order a couple drinks and have dinner. The bartenders are always very attentive, courteous, and entertaining. And the food.....well, it's a great value and always delicious! Can't wait to stop in at... More

My husband and I were visiting NC with our children and ate at Ricks while in town! It was kind of busy but we were seated quickly at a booth near the door. The food was delicious as I ordered the Pecan Tilapia and my husband got the Honey Swordfish. We received our meal quickly and our server, April was... More

Our waiter totally made the visit great. The food was good, I liked the atmosphere - sort of a blend between family seafood restaurant and local bar. We had to wait outside for a table and someone came around and took drink orders while we waited. As stated before, our waiter was great - very friendly and helpful. We will... More

We had seven people in our party, most of them kids/teens and visited around 2:30pm on a Monday. Seated right away and waitress Tiffany was friendly and efficient. While we were not looking for a large meal and had mostly appetizers and sandwiches, the food was solidly good, well-prepared food. Booths were large and roomy with a sports bar atmosphere.... More

Pretty crowded for a Sunday evening. Server must have been new, as he seemed a little confused and made an awful lot of apologies. Had the blackened grouper which was very good, but I did not like the finishing sauce. Came with homemade pottato chips which were excellent. Satisfactory salad, and a very good, but somewhat salty crab bisque. Pretty... More
