Went to ricks with my wife and kids. I have driven by this place a million time on my way to Stratton to ski. Finally stopped. The food was terrible almost uneatable. It was like frozen pizza quality. Don't wast your time going there.

My husband and 17 year old son stopped here on a road trip. The waitress and bartender made no eye contact until I asked for a table. I was told 10 minutes. We sat at a small bar once again completely ignored until I spoke up for a drink. She begrudgingly served us. After 25 minutes and still waiting I... More

Just came back from a diner at Rick's. Sunday night special is prime rib. Was $17.95. All you can eat. So I was planning on eating a lot. But the piece I got filled the plate and was 1" thick. And cooked to perfection. Warm, juicy, pink. This was $17.95??! And my wife had salmon that she said was the... More

Excellent burger and a very nice family friendly place. Glad we stopped & if it had been a different season, I would have had some of their ice cream. I would certainly return next time I'm in the area.

Our family, while not from the immediate area, has been going to Rick's Tavern once or twice a year for at least 15 years. That should tell you something right there. It's always been a place where we could get a lot of pretty decent food for a very fair price. On our most recent visit however, I noticed some... More

We ordered our pizza and poppers to go. The pizza was really good, chicken bacon shrimp with bbq sauce and Vermont cheddar with ham but the poppers were the best. Not a disappointment in the least.

Everyone in the Valley knows Rick's, as does everyone who travels Route 30. Rick's serves unpretentious American fare...burgers and beers, and on Friday and Saturday nights, a live band. It's the hub of the Valley. People go more for the community atmosphere, than the food. Leave your gourmet expectations at home and settle in for a great down home time.... More

Hadn't been to Rock's in years. Happy to report they still serve the same wonderful and delicious Italian food as always. Large portions insure you go away full, and happy.
