Friendly Service & Great Food

Excellent Lake Erie perch. A welcoming place to dine -- clean, friendly. Although one member's order in our party was overlooked, the waitress quickly corrected. You cannot go wrong by choosing Ricardo's.

We go here every year on my birthday. Best steak anywhere. Juicy, moist, cooked to perfection. Great value. The fried zucchini is amazing!

The slogan on their ad says it all....fit for a king and priced for a working man. My four ounce steak was so good I didn't want to finish it because then it would be all gone. Next time, I get the 7oz! Served in very pleasant surroundings with friendly and helpful staff and personable owners.

This restaurant has been around forever and could use some updating but why fix something that isn't broke. Have not been here in over 30 years but it is still one of the most popular and good restaurants in Erie. The prices are more than reasonable and the food is really good. Had a 4 oz filet that was cooked... More

I have always heard great things about this restaurant. Unfortunately, the one time I ate there for dinner it was not good. The sauce did not taste good to me. The fish had bones in it. Everything was just below average for the three of us who dined there. We have enjoyed the ribs that were able to be purchased... More

Have been going to this restaurant since I was a kid. When I lived out of state, and would come in to visit family, I always request to have one meal here. The fried zucchini is the best. And the filet is reasonably priced and very tasty.

Ricardos has been a family tradition for birthdays in our family for probably around 50 years. All of my family have since moved from Erie but we still have a reason to go back since my Husband has family there. I have eaten in tons of different restaurants but no filet mignon compares to that of Ricardos. It is FABULOUS... More
