Enjoyable dinner

We ate here for the Prime Rib Special on Wednesdays night. The prime rib and salad were both great. We were disappointed in the crab dip. It has way too much cheese on top which made it disgusting. I do Not recommend it. The wait time was long and not accurate but overall it was an okay place for... read more

Prices are way too high and the food was gross. I didn't enjoy this place at all... I figured it would have really seafood but it did not.

We have been coming to North Topsail Beach for 8 years and have tried every restaurant in the area. We have yet to find any place within 25 miles that is better than Ricks. It is always packed on weekends- but you can enjoy a cocktail on the porch while you wait. It is a fun atmosphere, occasional live music... More

Rick's is a casual, friendly place with great food and drinks. Their menu has something for everyone. Love their specials! Trivia and karaoke nights are really fun.

The restaurant was busy when we were there for dinner but the wait staff went above and beyond to serve us. The food, crab cakes and shrimp alfredo, we ordered was very good. Would revisit if/when in the area again.

We ate here for dinner on a weeknight while on vacation at Topsail. There was no wait to sit down and the food was served quickly. The food was good and the service was GREAT. We eat out a lot so we know a good server when we are fortunate enough to have one, and April was fantastic. The serving... More

The food was really good! The waitstaff efficient and friendly. The atmosphere is very laid back and comfortable. Bathrooms are clean. Easy access from the HWY and close to the beach. Their homemade chips are the best!! Menu has a good variety of food so it was easy to please everybody. Just a lil side note....the BBQ is better in... More

Super Mahi with the coconut sauce! Wife had the pecan crusted tilapia. The buffalo chicken salad was great says my nephew. Everyone of our party of 10 left very satisfied. One of the best beach restaurants I have ate at!

Just returned from a dinner at Ricks. Sat at the bar as it was a bit crowded when we arrived and we were past hungry. Great decision as the service was great, the beer cold and good, and we were able to listen to and join in conversations with several locals as we'll as the bartender and owner sitting a... More
