Stopped in early on a Saturday evening (changeover day for vacation rentals). Wait for three people was 25 minutes but we were able to order food at the bar. Bartenders were great, offered great service and did not act at all "put upon" because they were serving diners who were drinking. Full bar, beer and cocktail specials. Food was good... More

While I would have liked more of a seafood selection, the food and service were great. Mussels and fried shrimp were delicious.

Service was great, food was great probably the best in the area. The new York strip with signature rub was my favorite. I would return for sure.

I usually dine with my husband but this time he could not accompany me due to business. I walked into Rick's and was immediately greeted with welcoming smiles. I sat at one of the tables near the bar. It was perfect for me as I could watch all the customers come and go. I did not have a big appetite... More

Rick's is a wonderful restaurant just before heading to North Topsail in Sneads ferry. We had a delicious lunch on there front porch which the waitress was very accommodating to our special needs. We Loved Ricks so much that we contacted them to have food catered to be brought to the beach on North Topsail for our family reunion. The... More

Don't get me wrong, the food was FANTASTIC. Our party of five ate every last morsel. But, what really made this experience was our server, Melissa. She went above and beyond to make sure we were happy. She pointed out her favorites, offered suggestions for accompaniments for our meal... even brought us an assortment of butter for our pre-meal bread.... More

Lots of variety on the menu and on the beer list. They don't take reservations, but you can call 20 minutes in advance to get on a list for priority seating. The place was packed, and it seemed to be a mix of locals and tourists. We had to wait a short while for a table, but they serve drinks... More

Fantastic place to eat with a large menu. We had 2 tables with 10 people. 4 kids were at a separate table and April did a great job taking care of them and checking in with us as well. April was awesome!
