Rick's on Main is situated in a charming, historical building in a charming, historical village. The menu offers a wide variety of interesting (in a good way) food. The list of specials was long and everything sounded great. Our server, Babs, (who was excellent) answered all of our questions and explained the chef would be happy to accommodate special diets....

I love this place. Located in East Aurora in an old home on Main Street in the heart of the village. Nothing fancy, but they deliver. I don't ever think of coming here as we have so many restaurants to choose from, but when I do, I always leave saying to myself this was the right choice. As I said... More

Seating was immediate and service was good. We visit here a few times in the past but felt the food quality has slipped some and organization of operation also went downhill. I ordered the Pork Chop special and by the bone the pork meat was rare. My wife had the pasta special with veggies. We had to remind them to... More

We go there about once a month, upscale, but not to stuffy. food is AMAZING, consistent, and never disappoints, nor does the staff. Molly and John are Fabulous, personable, professional, and an asset to EA!

Been there many times. Food is very good but also very expensive. Service is average, Table for two will get you into a closet. Not very romantic.

Yesterday,2/24/17, my wife and I were out for a drive. I don't know why but we always seem to wind up in E Aurora. It's Vidler's and The Roycroft Shops. I had not had any lunch and was starved. We saw this quaint porch with people eating on the deck. My wife thought it to be a bar with strictly... More
