Excellent burger and a very nice family friendly place. Glad we stopped & if it had been a different season, I would have had some of their ice cream. I would certainly return next time I'm in the area.

Our family, while not from the immediate area, has been going to Rick's Tavern once or twice a year for at least 15 years. That should tell you something right there. It's always been a place where we could get a lot of pretty decent food for a very fair price. On our most recent visit however, I noticed some... More

We ordered our pizza and poppers to go. The pizza was really good, chicken bacon shrimp with bbq sauce and Vermont cheddar with ham but the poppers were the best. Not a disappointment in the least.

A good place for good solid American food and a brewski. Friendly atmosphere. Enjoyed by travelers and locals alike.

Everyone in the Valley knows Rick's, as does everyone who travels Route 30. Rick's serves unpretentious American fare...burgers and beers, and on Friday and Saturday nights, a live band. It's the hub of the Valley. People go more for the community atmosphere, than the food. Leave your gourmet expectations at home and settle in for a great down home time.... More

Hadn't been to Rock's in years. Happy to report they still serve the same wonderful and delicious Italian food as always. Large portions insure you go away full, and happy.

We've dined here several tines with a hungry teenage son - and found the all you can eat Friday night Fish Fry to be very good. Typical local tavern atmosphere. Only disappointment was when they had run out of coffee!

We were spending a rainy Sunday night in Newfane and looking for a place to eat nearby. I read the reviews of Rick's Tavern and decided that this would be a good choice in the immediate area. The decor was typical Vermont, lots of wood and down to earth feeling. My husband ordered the turkey dinner and I had the... More
