Stopped in for lunch with friends and was really happy with everything. The place is super cute and they have lots of booths. The ahi tuna was really fresh, lamb burger was cooked perfectly, and they had my favorite cider on tap. I'm looking forward to trying more things on their menu!!!

You would never believe such a gem exists in a such an ugly eye sore of a strip mall. Call ahead! This place is ALWAYS packed and it's for good reason. Their menu is eclectic and creative but still offers something for the pickiest eaters. This is a lively, casual place with a good vibe. Definitely give it a try!

Some of the best fried calamari we have ever had. Entrees and service were also excellent. Very happy to have come across this restaurant passing through Hagerstown. We will definitely dine here again.

A great find in Hagerstown. Rik's is located in a large strip mall not easy to find but well worth it. We had the twin crab cakes and cafe seafood broil both were excellent. The waitress had a mix up on my order and the owner quickly came to our table and made everything right. Highly recommended.

We started off with Calamari and it was very tasty . My main dish was Cafe Seafood Broil which I thoroughly enjoyed . The prices are very reasonable . Don't let this place pass you because it does'nt look fancy . All staff friendly and personable . We arrived at 3:45pm and were told we could be seated immediately if... More

My husband and I went to Rik's for lunch and were very pleased with the quality of food and the excellent service. There are a lot of unusual choices on the menu plus some standard favorites. Our waiter was excellent with a great sense of humor. It is a bit out of the way in a strip shopping center on... More

Trip Advisor does it again! So glad we find places like this - through Trip Advisor! Excellent food & staff. I had the Caprese Wheel and Blackened Mahi Tacos. Hubby had the Grilled Baby Romaine Salad & Havana Burger. Delicious! Huge portions too.

Traveled to Riks Cafe for a girlfriends get together this week. We all really enjoyed our meals. Very attentive wait staff and even the owner, Rik stopped by our table to see how everything was. Interesting menu with very fresh tasting food. While the location is a bit hard to find, the restaurant is very nice inside.

We call this restaurant Narnia. It's in a not-so-nice strip mall and has tinted windows so you wonder whether it's open. Inside is a hopping restaurant with a great atmosphere, delicious food, and long bar with excellent tap selection. Favorites: mussels, Blackened Mahi Reuben, and Havana burger. Must order: sweet potato fries with apple butter dipping sauce. To try: buratta.... More

Stopped in at Rik's on on the way back to DC from Fallingwater. What a wonderful addition to a perfect road trip. Situated in a nondescript strip mall is a wonderful oasis of delectable meals served by expert wait staff who know the menu and care about the guests. Rik's Food was rokingly amazing. Save room for desert!!!!
