We went on Easter Sunday and were very pleased! We didn't have a reservation and we were a party of 8 but they immediately put 2 tables together for us. Service was very prompt and attentive. Our server Sarah took care of our every need, even when we spilled a large glass of water. Appetizers were delicious and the main... More

I ordered a create your own surf and turf with ribeye steak and salmon. My steak was cooked perfectly but lacked seasoning. The salmon as a little under cooked and also lacked flavor but was good enough to eat. My husband ordered the lobster tails and complained of the butter not being hot and lack of seasoning. Overall the food... More

We really enjoyed this friendly eatery. Very popular locals and tourists mix. Food had a lot of flavor, beef vegetable soup and loaded potato skins had savory spices. Often a wait here at peak evening times, but the big front porch with lots of seating and a dedicated waitress for drinks really made for a relaxing experience.

We like to go to Rick's when we visit North Topsail Beach. The service is always great and the people are friendly. It has a nice bar area with scheduled live music or trivia night. The other side of the restaurant is family friendly with large tables. The menu is has many choices, and the staff is accommodating to adjustments... More

Our family comes here every year when we visit Topsail Island. It's always good. We ate here for lunch this year. Everyone really enjoyed their meals. At our table we ordered the hamburger steak, chicken fingers, crab cakes, blackened flounder, and a garden salad. The flounder was especially good. For dessert, we got the death by chocolate cake and the... More

We like to go to this little community theater in Sneeds Ferry and afterward go out for dinner. This place was so worth it. Fun atmosphere, really good food and great service. We ended with a piece of ice cream pie and it didn't disappoint. Company is coming next weekend and this is number one our list!

While on our honeymoon, my husband and I stopped in at Rick's from a "local's" advise and we were not disappointed! The food was delicious and then we met "Mo" and she was delightful! She talked with us for about 10 or 15 minutes. We even went back for dinner! Great place and atmosphere! The Spivey's, 04/2017

Rick's is a large place, with a lot of booths, pub tables and plenty of space at the bar. There are large TVs channeling sports, but best of all, they play great music from the late '60s and '70s. The waitstaff is prompt and friendly, and I very much enjoyed the waitress I had, April. She was quick to take... More
