As always, the food was very good, and tasted fresh. You can get the order broiled or fired.One of the problems I have with... More

The food was amazing! Fresh seafood and enormous portions! Can't beat it! Great for a relaxing night to eat home out on the deck and watch the sunset while enjoying not having to cook. Wide variety of dinner platters. They also sell fresh seafood if you feel like cooking. An A+ in my book!

I ordered the fried seafood platter and it was enough for two people. The Crab cake was AMAZING the rest was ok; It didn't really have flavor past the breadcrumbs. I also had the soft shell crab sandwich, not so good. I think next time, I'll go for something not fried to compare it to, but I would definitely order... More

Rick's has been around for a long time. It is a seafood take-out place. The food can be purchased raw or cooked. We have always selected the cooked versions. The shop is located in North Wildwood practically at the end of Route 147 as the route enters North Wildwood. We ordered crab mac n cheese, scallops, shrimp, flounder, and soft... More

This was our first time trying Rick's. We did carry out for the New England clam chowder and crab chowder. When we returned to the hotel, everyone loved the NE clam chowder and we should have gotten more. Absolutely delicious - fresh and worth the price!!!

We LOVE Ricks!! Long time customers...Rick and staff are just the best. My favorites are the deviled crabs, stuff flounder and fried combo! We usually call ahead from the beach and pick it up on the way home. The soups are really good too!! One tip, call ahead the wait can be long on the weekends.

My husband has been coming here for years, he absolutely loves the crabs. This year we decided to order platters. My husband and I got a sea scallop platter, my friend got salmon and another friend got flounder. The food was amazing and we were not disappointed! I would def recommend this place!!

If you are looking for a take out seafood experience, this is your place. Note: call ahead with plenty of time. This is not a place to go if you are on a time schedule. But if you can be patient, it is worth the rig-a-ma-roll. Parking is sketchy, and there is usually a line, but just stand there and... More

Rick's is a main staple in North Wildwood. The seafood is very, very fresh and made to order -- as you can tell when you place an order and must wait 2 hours to pick up your food. My family loves takeout from Rick's. We've had everything from fried flounder and fried seafood platters to sandwiches and soups. I've had... More
