“Good Food with some noise!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

I ate at Mr. Ricks a couple of days ago with a friend. We had the mahi mahi fish tacos and sunburst sandwich. I would rate our food as great!! I have to say that it was rather noisy but kind of expected it cuz we sat inside rather than out on the patio which would have been our first choice. We went to have lunch so I can't speak for the night scene! The bartender was friendly and helpful! I liked the place!

“Good Day or Night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

Mr Rick's is a good beach bar, great food and great drinks. They have live music which is catered toward an older crowd. They keep the doors open so you get some nice air flow. Worth checking out.

“Always a good time at Ricks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

Great place to hang out, have drinks and enjoy music on the beach. Decent prices, large selecttion of beers, wine and good drinks. The food is brought in from the restaurant next door. We didn't eat but our friends did and said they liked it. We always stop in when in the area.

“Great place overlooking beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

Nice place to relax after a morning of golf. Plenty of TV's to watch football games or watch the waves roll in. Clean, friendly staff and patio seating provides and excellent view of beach. Food was good and reasonable priced.
