Ricky P's is a New Orleans style restaurant in a strip shopping center in North St. Petersburg. The restaurant is decorated with NOLA memorabilia and photographs. The service is friendly and welcoming. Cajun and Creole dishes are authentic - enjoyable but not outstanding. It is a restaurant we will continue to frequent.

This restaurant use to be in a downtown space but recently moved to a small strip center north of town. The food is fabulous and the staff is extremely friendly. We were a party of six and everyone raved about their selections. I had Shrimp Etouffee which was served with two sides -- I chose cole slaw and the fresh... More

The seafood gumbo was terrific. The etouffe was not to my liking, although I should have anticipated that as the menu clearly stated "creamy white sauce". Service was very good. 11042 N. 4th St.

We visited for dinner at their new location (11022 4th St. North) and they're just getting up from the move. We had combo platter (crab cake). Mine had a jambalaya side and my wife red beans & rice. I had the cajun slaw (just slaw really) and she had the cajun potato salad (just potato salad really). The jambalaya and... More

Try the Dang Dang shrimp if you go - they are delicious and an appetizer size is enough for lunch. My husband and I shared them and I had a cup of gumbo which is actually a bowl. I left stuffed and happy. My husband had a sandwich he thought was very good. He ordered a glass of wine but... More

We had the crab cakes, which were very good. The shrimp po-boys where huge and tasty. We were however disappointed by the service. It was all around slow starting with getting us menus and water to taking our drink orders. Not sure if it was due to a party just wrapping up or if this is standard. We'll try Ricky... More

Just made our third visit to Ricky P's and as always everything was perfect! The live jazz was wonderful. Our server Melanie was as usual warm and friendly and made us feel right at home. We came for brunch and we both had Ricky P's eggs Benedict with their superb crab cake instead of an English muffin and Louis sauce... More

We went there to celebrate the ending of our Junior term of Nursing school. We all ate something different. Everyone enjoyed their dishes and there was a lot of food for each person. I had shrimp and Grits and it was good. My only complaint is that the grits were a little thick. I felt as though it were very... More
