“Seagulls & Beach Food”
Reviewed August 15, 2014

The new ownership has kicked this beachy restaurant up a notch in a good way. There is
a fairly large menu with prices ranging on average between $5-$15 (with seafood plates being higher). I had a BLT which was surprising good, with in-season tomatoes and well-cooked bacon.
The staff is exceptionally friendly and professional, both in the kitchen as well as trying to keep on top of cleaning up the tables and trash outside. One thing you need to be aware of is the ever
present drone-like seagull hanging over your table, waiting to remove your entire meal. And
should you leave to get more ketchup the drone will swoop in!

“Good place on the beach”
Reviewed August 9, 2014

Nice to sit on the beach or at a picnic table and have fried clams or lobster roll or root beer float.. Lobster roll was on the expensive side for the amount of meat..but they also have pizza, burgers, fries, ice cream..something for everyone..Can't go wrong..and the view cannot be beat..just a beautiful place to chill and have a long lunch.

“Lime Ricky's...hidden asset in Marblehead by the sea...”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

Today you are going to treat yourself to a beach day and you pick Marblehead's Devereaux Beach. Visualize the sounds of the surf and the beating sun - you automatically crave something icy cold, like a Lime Ricky or Lemonade to quench your thirst! The swell of the waves are attractive to the novice and experienced surfer and paddle board goers, the beach offers you a haven for working on your Coppertone tan! After hangin' ten or body surfing you are going to be hungry and voila! Step on over to Lime Ricky's and you are in for a delicious and delightful surprise from your no-so-humdrum beach shanty restaurant. Eat on the deck and listen to the sounds of Jimmy Buffet music in the background and crash of the surf as you devour a burger, hotdog, wrap sandwich, chowdah, fish and chips, Richardson's ice cream this or that! Pretty much, Lime Ricky's will satisfy any hunger pain that ails ya! Tired of cooking on a hot summer night--perfect excuse to shepherd the kids and tell Dad to meet you after work seaside...what a fabulous idea after a harrowing day with kids running wild, your boss on your back and traffic moving slow...hit the brakes, grab it to go, head to the beach and take it slow. Be wary of the sea gulls though, cuz' they love them fried clams too!

“Best Beach dining on the North Shore”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

Spectacular view, excellent food, reasonable prices. Lime Rickey's isn't your usual burger or lobster roll beach shack. While the menu does include both burgers and 2 different lobster offerings it goes well beyond these staples of beach dining. The pulled pork sandwich is my favorite, while my husband likes the Cuban sandwich. Which ever you choose, you can't go wrong. You can dine on the deck or take a seat at a picnic table under the pavilion. My only caution is, DO NOT leave food unattended, the sea gulls are adept at cleaning the plates of absent diners.

The only draw back is the line can be a bit long, but it seemed to move relatively quickly.
