We visited for dinner at their new location (11022 4th St. North) and they're just getting up from the move. We had combo platter (crab cake). Mine had a jambalaya side and my wife red beans & rice. I had the cajun slaw (just slaw really) and she had the cajun potato salad (just potato salad really). The jambalaya and... More

Hey, Mango here, wishing you a super great moment! Now throw in some great Cajun eats and this moment will even be better! O.K. first off, I am a trained chef from New Orleans, so trust me, I know Louisiana cooking! Just like in Nawlin's when you walk in you are greeted by the owners Ricky P and Lisa and... More

Try the Dang Dang shrimp if you go - they are delicious and an appetizer size is enough for lunch. My husband and I shared them and I had a cup of gumbo which is actually a bowl. I left stuffed and happy. My husband had a sandwich he thought was very good. He ordered a glass of wine but... More

We had the crab cakes, which were very good. The shrimp po-boys where huge and tasty. We were however disappointed by the service. It was all around slow starting with getting us menus and water to taking our drink orders. Not sure if it was due to a party just wrapping up or if this is standard. We'll try Ricky... More

Just made our third visit to Ricky P's and as always everything was perfect! The live jazz was wonderful. Our server Melanie was as usual warm and friendly and made us feel right at home. We came for brunch and we both had Ricky P's eggs Benedict with their superb crab cake instead of an English muffin and Louis sauce... More

We went there to celebrate the ending of our Junior term of Nursing school. We all ate something different. Everyone enjoyed their dishes and there was a lot of food for each person. I had shrimp and Grits and it was good. My only complaint is that the grits were a little thick. I felt as though it were very... More

Horrible service. On Friday, March 4, 2016, I called around 1pm to inquire if Ricky P's was able to accommodate a family gathering of about 25 guests that evening/6:30pm. I was told yes, that they would be able to accommodate our group. We arrived at 6:15ish and was seated upstairs only to have one server (Stephanie) wait our group of... More

the waitress must have been a family member because there is no way she should have been working. She was very obviously under the influence of something. Every visit to our table was a mistake, an error we even had glass broken that fell off her tray, not once but twice. No one offered an apology, no one in the... More

I am from south Louisiana and took my family here as I heard it was supposed to be really good. We ordered different entres so we could try different items. I'm sorry to say that not any of the food we received came anywhere close to being authenic cajun. The entire meal was almost inedible and I will never again... More

They advertise authentic cajun food but don't quite get there. The fried shrimp, oysters and flounder we had were very good but those aren't cajun dishes. We also had their file gumbo, their red beans and rice and their étouffée and none of them measured up to New Orleans standards. Service was good but would not return to this restaurant... More
