Ric's is a place to look for if you are a local and haven't been. It is easy to find at the intersection of Craycroft and River. It has indoor and outdoor seating and a great selection of menu items. I particularly like the crabcakes.

Three of us went to Ric's at 6 p.m. on a Friday night, using a restaurant.com coupon. The server was friendly but service itself was spotty. We waited 10 minutes after getting our water before the waitress came over. My husband's seafood chowder eventually came--1...More
