Both my wife and I had stomach problems after eating here. I had the burger and she had the oysters. We are not sure of the cause. The couple that we were with had the shrimp platters and had no problems. The food was marginal. The service was very good. We most likely won't be returning.

Rick and Linda are wonderful hosts. Paul always takes good care of us. The food, from casual to uptown, is great. Their signature New England clam chowder is the best we've ever had...anywhere. We've never been disappointed.

I usually go for the fresh fish, but every thing on the menu is good. It's glorified bar food, but that is not a bad thing.

Average, looks like it would be a prime spot for a sports bar but we were there in the middle of the week for a quick family lunch. Average food, nothing really stood out to give it more than an 'average' rating.

Rick's is a good upscale sports bar with a wide variety of food from bar stuff to steaks, pasta etc. Our favorite is Tuesday 1/2 price wine. We just returned after a very good bowl of clam chowder and a couple of glasses of wine. Friendly, reasonable with quality food.

When we arrived at Rick's, it was late and I wasn't feeling so well do I didn't want to eat meat. I was told the cheese fries were steak fries so I opted for the cheese fries over potato skins. The fries are not steak fries. I didn't enjoy them too much. They were lukewarm and the cheese was barely... More

The rating is based on the fact that this is a sports bar type of place which is very casual. We had great service. Seven of us arrived about 6 pm on a Friday in November after calling ahead. Our table was ready for us. It is a a very popular place, probably a local favorite. It appeared to be... More

Our group of 7 ordered a variety of food on several checks. Food and drinks were served in a timely manner, accurately and by a pleasant serve Paige. This is a sports bar with a good beer menu and great tv's. Seafood was outstanding and I appreciated an atmosphere a bit different from the usual beach seafood restaurant. An excellent... More
