The line is almost always long but the taste of the dessert is worth it. I ordered the chocolate:OD cake which is more like layers of mouse... very chocoldtely and delicious. My friend go the creme brûlée and loved it to. We managed to get an available table that was dirty, and wobbly. Granted they were busy but the floors,... More

What a way to end the evening after the theater, a light dinner, or other treat. The dessert selection is extensive but a bit expensive. Still a treat but only for dessert. Not any "real" food like hamburgers, sandwiches, etc so don't expect anything but desserts.

It's a nice and very well put together dessert diner. There is nothing bad or out of this world about it. Seems to have a huge following. I had the pineapple and coconut cake.

If you're wondering where to eat dessert at well this is the place. I've been here multiple times and it never disappoints. The pricing is good and the food is great. It's not good for you but it's great.

Desserts are delicious, but the wait is tiresome. Poorly trained staff. Love to be a trainer for them and teach them how to turn the line quicker

We view getting dessert at Rick's as a special treat on a date night...You know, skip dessert at the restaurant and go to Rick's. This last visit was not so special. Our cakes were decent. Certainly on par with a restaurant offering. But the real downer is the service. The woman who rang us up could not have been more... More

Good place to go to treat yourself to a slice of mint chocolate cake with friends. You do not need a special occasion to Ricks.

Like a 50's Darling Diner full of foods, fabulous desserts, and the best ice cream I have EVER had - ever. Homemade bakery right there inside the place. Spotlessly clean. Friendly servers. The food is terrific. Don't miss stopping by and at least have some ice cream --- or one of their beautiful cakes and desserts. Good prices, too. We'll... More

I love the desserts here, but please lower the prices a little. This place does a good business so I guess it proves many people are willing to pay for a dessert but I wish I could afford to treat myself more.

Having not been here for a while, we decided to have a date night out at Rick's. We arrived around 7 or 7:30 PM. The showcase was filled with delicious looking cakes and pies. We took the counter peoples' suggestions for our round of cakes. Unfortunately the cake parts were dried out and without much flavor and the fillings and... More
