Party of four adults and two children, only option was a higher booth, no high chair option, so 1 1/2 year old had to sit in booth. This was our option after waiting 20 min for a regular table. The room was hot, we only noticed a few "window" type air conditioner units. Our server was great, she'd get excellent;... More

I typically do not complain about service as I worked in the restaurant industry all through college, but my visit to Rick's prompted a review. We decided to try Rick's out since it received decent reviews and was close to the condo we stayed in on North Topsail Beach. Our waitress, although friendly, provided poor service. Our drinks took 15... More

Food was great, service was exceptional! My mom had seafood and I had steak, both of us thought our food was fabulous. We knew it was a good place when it was packed by 5 o'clock every night!

Good clam chowdah. We ate here twice during vacation week and all around the food was satisfying. Crab dip was mostly all crab, French dip sandwich with a touch of horseradish was perfect with the au jus.

We were visiting our grandsons and wanted a nice dinner with them. If you are looking for a nice quiet atmosphere to dine in and to be able to have a conversation this is not your place. My wife ordered the special which was a white fish. The rub was very salty. I ordered the blackened tuna off the paper... More

Was seated almost right away by very attentive hostess, despite being very busy. Drinks served by a server on the patio while you wait, if needed. Fish and chips were on point, kids loved them. The Dirty Bird and Fish Tacos are also outstanding. Nice drink specials. Will return before we go home.

My first visit hire was for my guy's birthday dinner. I suggested that we go somewhere "nice" and he said Rick's (i had never been there before) I said "no I want you to enjoy some really good food for your birthday." He insisted on Rick's and stated that they do have good food and the atmosphere was low key... More

We went to Rick's based on Tripadvisor rating and weren't disappointed. Our waitress, Missi, was great and provided us with spot on recommendations. Hot crab dip, crab cakes, fish tacos, crab Monte Crisco were all delicious and the drinks (Surf City Sunrise and Miami Vice were fabulous). You will probably have to wait for a table during busy times -... More

First off, the atmosphere here is fun. We ate at the bar and it was very clean and well appointed with multiple beers on draft and a wide liquor selection. After we sat down we were greeted after a few minutes and got our drinks and menus. The bartender was friendly but we were confused after a about 15 minutes... More

Arrived in town hungry and thirsty...passed Rick's on the way to our hotel. We quickly checked in and circled back to Rick's around 6:30. A waiting line was beginning to form, but we were seated within 5 minutes. Our Server greeted us within a minute or two and brought us our drinks ASAP. The menu offered the normal options you...
