Nice diner for breaky but the service is average. Ordered two meals and juice. Got the meals but had to remind the waitress about the juice. Very large portions with an extensive menu. Good if you want an average big breakfast.

We often drive from Campbell River to Victoria and return. When we are hungry, we always stop at the Ricky's in Ladysmith. There is a good variety of dishes and a pleasant, although dated, atmosphere. This last time we were pleased with the meal that we had for sure.

There were six of us went in. Less than positive to start...our reservation was for 6 and we had to wait for them to get a table ready. But seated by 6:10. I think most of us were very happy with our meals, I had the beef dip (philly style) and it was probably the best beef dip I've ever... More

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 .
