When we arrived at Rick's, it was late and I wasn't feeling so well do I didn't want to eat meat. I was told the cheese fries were steak fries so I opted for the cheese fries over potato skins. The fries are not steak fries. I didn't enjoy them too much. They were lukewarm and the cheese was barely... More

The rating is based on the fact that this is a sports bar type of place which is very casual. We had great service. Seven of us arrived about 6 pm on a Friday in November after calling ahead. Our table was ready for us. It is a a very popular place, probably a local favorite. It appeared to be... More

We visited this restaurant on a recommendation that the prime rib was wonderful. We got there early because everyone told us on Prime Rib Night it is very crowded. My husband and I both ordered the prime rib. I ordered an end cut, which I generally do if it is available. The waitress was great and also confirmed that the... More

We stopped here when we first arrived. There is a sports bar to the left with booths surrounding it and a separate seating area on the right for family and or friends. The food is basic, price was fair and our waitress was very attentive and helpful. Parking is free

It's a sports bar with tvs on one side of the restaurant and dining on the other. There are booths on the bar side as well, so they try to cater to every need. The atmosphere is informal and relaxed, so go with friends and have a good time. We go for the food, and we have had good experiences... More

I have eaten here many times in the past. My husband and i come fishing at Topsail about 10 times a year and usually eat here. The food is always very good but this time i was disappointed. The ribs were tiny portion -wise and extremely dry. The turkey barbecue was dry and salty as if a rub of salt... More

We frequent Rick's often and always have good food and service, but tonight was by far the best. THE best service, thanks to our outstanding server, Nick. He was courteous, cool and stayed two steps ahead of what we needed. Thanks, Nick!!! We'll be asking to be seated in your section again for sure! Rick's is the best food Sneads... More
