This place can't be too bad, I went there twice! Seriously, yes, twice - once as a guest of a friend and then with family. The service was good, quick and I guess of a type that I have come associate with "better" franchises in North America. Lots of "your welcomes", (a phrase not often heard in Australia) and pleasant... More

My brother and his 2 year son sat there today for over 50 minutes waiting for two sandwiches with not one word from waitress as to why it was taking so long. Finally we just walked out as my nephew just could take it anymore. Unbelievable service and will never ever go there again. I m so mad .

Ever looked at each other and can't decide what to eat as neither wants to cook? We were like that and Ricky's answered the call. Clean, lots on the menu, reasonably priced, efficient service and good food. When we are in doubt, Ricky's is the place here in Ladysmith!!

This is a great restaurant for a family meal and or a meeting for coffee. The breakfast that I had was very good with a large portion. The staff was very friendly and the restaurant and washrooms were very clean. Thanks
