“Great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

This restaurant sits right on Eagle Creek reservoir just outside downtown Indy. Makes you feel like you are far away from home. Food and service is good too!!

“Great spot for casual outdoor dining”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

I always enjoy going to Rick's. The food is standard fare, but always good and served hot, as it should be. The service is also always pleasant. The highlight of Rick's is the vast outdoor seating, overlooking a lovely lake. I haven't been there in the evening (only for lunch), but it seems like Rick's has a bustling night life.

“Very nice Sunday brunch menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

We enjoyed a very nice Sunday brunch while looking out on the water. The regular menu was also available along with the Sunday Brunch menu. The options were very nice and it was hard to decide what to get. Two in our party of three ordered outside of the brunch menu and ordered BBQ pizza and cedar plank white fish. Both were excellent. The third item ordered was two poached eggs over two crab cakes. This came with a small side of mixed fruit and some nicely fried potatoes. We will be back!

“On the water!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

Really love going to eat at Rick's. The food is great and just love sitting out on the deck on a warm sunny day or evening. There chops and steaks are really great. People sure know how to take care of their customers.
