Varied menu and good food keeps me coming back!

Just moved to the area and people told us to eat at "the depot" or the "train station". Apparently this restaurant was an actual depot before. It's has ample seating, in and outside, with a sports bar on one side and a dining area on the other. I've had 3 rib-eye steaks and all were excellent... read more

We came here with 12 other people on my husbands birthday getaway. Walked in with no reservations and they were quite busy. They were friendly and accommodating, seated us within 15 minutes. Atmosphere is a cool old train station, yummy craft beers on tap, and lots of different things to choose off the menu. I had shrimp and grits and... More

My wife loves the Oriental crab cakes that they make. We drove 40 plus miles to just have lunch here. We topped off the meal sharing a coconut cream pie. It is a small pie big enough for two and so good. I have eaten here a number of times and it is always good. Service is usually good but... More

We stopped for lunch at Ricardo's and found the menu choices and prices excellent. The portions were large and delicious. The kettle chips that come as a side with the sandwiches were top-notch and we ended up taking a to-go container home with leftover chips to enjoy later. We highly recommend the batter-dipped fish sandwich and also the Kentucky hot... More

The food is very, very good. The offerings are creative and portions are generous. We were visiting family and I had never had a Kentucky Hot Brown, so I tried it. Excellent. This is an open face sandwich with turkey, ham, bacon, tomato and mornay sauce. My husband got the special, steak medallions on goat cheese mashed potatoes with spinach... More

The last time I was in the Lexington area I wanted a pub/home town feel. Ricardo's is the place. Great food and easy to get to.

The food was good but salads do not come with the pasta dishes. Everyone was very friendly. This was a "happening" place so if you're looking for a quiet place to dine, I would not recommend it!

We didn't stop here to eat, but to have a drink and an appetizer (onion straws). I enjoyed the personality of the restaurant and the bar area. Ricardo's has a nice selection of beers at a good price. Cari was quite pleasant as a bartender, also. I'll stop there again.

We eat at Ricardo's regularly for lunch during the work week. They have great daily specials and soups. My only complaint is that I never go here for family dinners as I have a small child and they do not have diaper changing facilities.
