They a few nice things on the menu but it never changes. I've waited months between visits and end up getting the exact same thing every time because the selection is so limited. Plus we some how end up getting the waiter pulling double duty to working the bar, even though we are not seated in the bar, so service... More

The relaxing atmosphere would bring me back, the food was not memorable. For this price other places in the Hagerstown area have better quality and prices. Crab bisque was tasteless. Crab cake was ok. Others with me did enjoy the burger special. Fries are hand cut and delicious. Wait staff was wonderful!

Love coming here and it is always busy. A reservation is a must and the menu does rotate based on the season. Just stopping in for drinks is also great.

A nice venue with friendly, efficient staff, but the food was average. Fish and meat were cooked well, but the squid was mainly batter and the scallops were very tough. Some of the dishes weren't as flavoursome as we had hoped. The range of microbrewed ales was good, but steer clear of gin and tonic as the chlorine in the... More

Decided to take it easy the first day on the road, so we stopped for the night in Hagerstown. Rik's kept coming up as a well recommended dining option,so off we went. Although located in an unassuming strip mall, once inside you felt like you were in a favorite, local bar/pub. Greeted by very friendly staff we were seated immediately.... More

Went to Rik's for dinner on a business trip based on a recommendation of our client. It is located in a large strip mall. As soon as we walked in we were surrounded by the wonderful aroma of food. The menu had a large variety from appetizers, soups, salads, main dishes of seafood, steak, chicken and much more. I had... More

We had a great meal about a year ago at Rik's. We went back recently and were seated in the bar because we didn't have reservations. The bartender forgot our appetizer (we specifically went there to get the crab dip pretzel which was very good last time) and never refilled our water and never offered us soda or anything else,...

Good food, small soup portions, crab soup fair, slow on refills. Server polite and was able to recommend dishes. Reuben sandwich was good.

Not terrible and not great. Food is ok, but not to die for. The shopping center where the restaurant is located is old and tired.
