My wife and I had some free time on a business trip last month (Oct) in south Jersey, and decided to visit Cape May and do lunch at Rick's. We got there just before noon. We were the first customers of the day. My wife got the flounder sandwich and I got butterfly shrimp and flounder plate. Very fresh. Best... More

I've been here twice so far and both times were my favorite :). Ricks was recommended by people that have been vacationing in North Wildwood for years. I get the twin stuffed lobster tails when I come and they are delicious. There is no inside seating but there are two picnic tables outside on the sidewalk/driveway which I've eaten at... More

This place is all take out a very little seating out side, no wait staff. If you don't mind a 2 1/2 hr. Wait on Friday, Saturday and Sunday for take out this is your place. Fresh seafood large portions good pricing and they take cc. So if your looking for dinner at 6:30 pm call ahead.

Convenient when you want fresh and cooked seafood. We often get cooked sea food from Ricks. Fast service.

My family has used Rick's a lot over the years. The food is generally pretty good. What absolutely kills me with this place are the wait times. It's not uncommon for a 60-90 minute wait from when you call an order in until your food will be ready. On a Sunday night a few weeks ago, they gave us a... More

Seafood here is always cooked to perfection! The broiled seafood combo is my favorite! I look forward to coming here every year while vacationing!

Best Seafood! Fresh, prices are responsible. Take out menu is extensive. For those who do Not indulge in eating seafood, their chicken parmesan with Linguine is awsome. They have a picnic table which sits about 12 other back. They are open at 9am-9pm. Order in advance!

We never visit Wildwood without at least one stop at Rick's Seafood. The food is absolutely delicious! My only advice is to plan ahead. We decide on our dinner order over breakfast and call it in for our desired evening pick-up time. Failure to plan ahead can mean that your pick-up order will take 3 hours, which does not work...

You won't be disappointed. Our family has been ordering from Rick's from 15 years. A great tradition.
