This was a decent restaurant and a staple location in town, but the restaurant closed down in Sept of 2016. The restaurant closing had nothing to do with their food, but was for other reasons unrelated to their service and fare. Our family is sad that we won't be able to drop in and see all those familiar faces anymore.... More

This restaurant was only average. It closed in September. When eating there, had to send back cutlery that needed cleaning. This should be caught by the server setting the table.

Good, clean, chain restaurant. Food is average for a chain restaurant and is the same from one establishment to the next.

Nice diner for breaky but the service is average. Ordered two meals and juice. Got the meals but had to remind the waitress about the juice. Very large portions with an extensive menu. Good if you want an average big breakfast.

We often drive from Campbell River to Victoria and return. When we are hungry, we always stop at the Ricky's in Ladysmith. There is a good variety of dishes and a pleasant, although dated, atmosphere. This last time we were pleased with the meal that we had for sure.

There were six of us went in. Less than positive to start...our reservation was for 6 and we had to wait for them to get a table ready. But seated by 6:10. I think most of us were very happy with our meals, I had the beef dip (philly style) and it was probably the best beef dip I've ever... More

This place can't be too bad, I went there twice! Seriously, yes, twice - once as a guest of a friend and then with family. The service was good, quick and I guess of a type that I have come associate with "better" franchises in North America. Lots of "your welcomes", (a phrase not often heard in Australia) and pleasant... More
