I can not believe I was served this breakfast in a public restaurant. When I complained from what I could tell was a pre frozen avocado I was told that is the way they come. Then when I asked my server if she would eat that toast she was not helpful but angry because I complained about over burned toast... More

got together with several other family members for breakfast as we were in town for a wedding. The food was good and staff members were friendly but I think a little overwhelmed with the number in our party and other tables as they were fairly busy. Had a little bit of a wait to get our cutlery after receiving our... More

I have been going to this restaurant for years so when we went after their recent renovations we were expecting the usual experience with a new atmosphere. We were disappointed. I took my wife for lunch and while we were waiting for our table a couple young ladies walked in that were obviously friends with the hostess and they were... More

Wait staff was very friendly. I had the soup and grilled cheese, the soup was barely warm and it tasted like it had too much tomato paste. Presentation was nice. Someone in our party had the prime rib which was ok but the potatoes didn't taste good. The French onion soup was ok highlight of meal. Seemed to be a... More

It was my idea to try the new remodeled Rickys. We had been there numberous times and had great food and great service. NOT ANYMORE. Took us 12 min. to be seated after three servers said they needed to clean a booth for us. Then I ordered clam chowder and wings. Well, 10 min. later I had to ask for... More

The food is very good --- from breakfast to burgers. However, the service is always slow. NOT the servers fault; they need more servers --- especially when it is busy.

This is not the kind of restaurant I would normally go to because in looking at the menu I had a challenging time finding anything remotely healthy. There were no other choices for lunch except Timmies - already had breakfast there ! I ended up choosing a lunch - pick 2 for 10.99 deal - I picked a reg. Salad... More

Good old standard:same as any Ricky's. If you like consistency and going to a chain that feels the same everywhere, this is your place. Reliable swift service. Decent food-nothing special. Endless coffee supply. Fairly inexpensive.

I haven't been to a Ricky's in years and was pleasantly surprised by the menu. I had the Mediterranean Salad with prawns. Ample sized portion and the meal came with a fresh bun! I look forward to returning and trying a few more items on the menu! 👍👍 to the staff!
