Good Food

Brought family from out of town to this restaurant....hadn't been in several years, so we knew we were taking a chance. We had always enjoyed previous experiences, so figured we would enjoy. Food was great, prices were okay, our waitress was not interested in serving us AT ALL. Most of our party took advantage of the Friday night fish fry.... More

Oqner is the typical super conservative Cincinnati stick in the mud...good bands, great service....horrible management. Ill kiss my wife how I want, when I want, if you dont like it..we will not return....neither will the 250 members of our private club that thought it was ok to kiss your wife. I love when an owner of a club thinks he... More

First, I would like to say congratulations on 20 yrs. But I believe you have wrote a review about the wrong place. We are a small 50 seat restaurant. Never would we be looked at as a club. Also we have no male owner/manager. In fact no male employees work the front of the house. Sorry that you had that... More

Food and service are great here. Hamburgers are delicious as well as the pizza. Some of the other dishes are hit or miss. Very family friendly!

My wife and I were riding around on route 30 in Vermont on a beautiful Saturday afternoon when we got hungry we found Rick's. This is not a fancy place, it is a tavern and looks and feels like a tavern. The food was great. The beer was ice cold. The service was fine. They seem to keep windows and... More

Three days in South Vermont and needed a decent meal. Having driven past this place and seen how busy decided to check reviews. Ricks was busy again which can only be good. Hubby ordered fried chicken with veggie burger for myself. Food was really good with exceptional onion rings! Service was great with prices to match. Would recommend Ricks in... More

We just bought a cabin in Newfane, VT and have already eaten at Rick's several times. So far the food has been very good. The fried shrimp was delicious and I had a sirloin tips & vegetables entree that was a special that night and it was delicious. My wife has also been very pleased with the Cajun pork chop... More

After a long day on the slopes, my friends and I headed to Rick's for some food and drinks. The bartender overheard one of my friends complain of a headache from a bad fall on the slopes and offered us some ibuprofen. The waitress was attentive and friendly. The food was very good and reasonably priced. Will continue to make... More

I am a Local and I can tell you the food has gone way down. I was around when Rick owned the restaurant and it was a great place. We spent $80.00 for pizza and wings last week and as one of the people I was with said "the wings were like eating tree bark" Pizza not great no one... More

Rick's has hearty food and a big menu. It's also very close to Four Columns and is great for families. You can get all the basics here, and it's good.
