We have been to Ricky's a few times and generally the food, particularly breakfast and prime rib sandwich, are very good. BUT we will not return because every time the service was slow and poor. In addition, on 2 occasions we had to request CLEAN cutlery and/or CLEAN coffee cups!! To bad . . .

We'd been snowbound for 2 days and spontaneously decided to go out for a decent Sunday evening dinner. Ricky's has a big menu and we weren't sure what we felt like eating so we went there. When we saw the Prime Rib dinner we decided to go all out. BIG mistake. One slice of prime rib, 50% of which was... More

I can not believe I was served this breakfast in a public restaurant. When I complained from what I could tell was a pre frozen avocado I was told that is the way they come. Then when I asked my server if she would eat that toast she was not helpful but angry because I complained about over burned toast... More

Had a little bit of a wait to get our cutlery after receiving our... More

I took my wife for lunch and while we were waiting for our table a couple young ladies walked in that were obviously friends with the hostess and they were... More

Wait staff was very friendly. I had the soup and grilled cheese, the soup was barely warm and it tasted like it had too much tomato paste. Presentation was nice. Someone in our party had the prime rib which was ok but the potatoes didn't taste good. The French onion soup was ok highlight of meal. Seemed to be a... More
