Food was too expensive for what it was. Chicken-fried steak was WAY overdone. When the weather is good, the outdoor patio is a great place to meet friends for drinks, but there's not enough room to dance outside.

Met friends for lunch, sat outside and enjoyed the balcony seating. Service was excellent as was the food! It's fun to go when there's a band playing! It's a beautiful inside and very nostalgic! Not inexpensive but worth the treat!

Met some co-workers for lunch and really liked it. The atmosphere was very good and our service was great. I had the Greek salad which was good and portion was huge. One downfall is the parking, I had to feed the meter to eat there. Overall, I was satisfied, I would return.

I love this place! Should be in the top #5 restaurants in Tyler. One of my favorite restaurants in East Texas. I go here for business lunches and dinners. The food is fantastic. Steaks, Oysters, soups, sandwiches....it's all great. Huge menu selection. The restaurant is beautiful with wood floors and terrific atmosphere. You will see Rick on most days. Great... More

Went on a busy night and maybe they arnt use to as much buisness but the service was non existant and to go to the bar and try to get a drink you have to yell inbetween others and hope they hear you which for me several times they did not. Also drinks overpriced for what you get. The atmosphere,... More

Was not impressed with this place at all. Food is average. Nothing fantastic. It to me is over priced for what you get.

Our ETECS amateur radio group usually meets each week at Don Juan's On The Square, for Mexican Food, but Tuesday's Weekly Special at Rick's On The Square is Meatloaf and two sides. Today, someone in the group, wanted meatloaf. Excellent choice! Large portions and a great selection of sides! I had the meatloaf, with gratin potatoes and green beans. Iced... More

I had a fabulous Rehearsal Dinner planned at Rick's, and my husband's family spent a pretty penny to have the top floor, flowers, candles, videographer, etc. Rick's had a band start playing under us that was EXTREMELY loud, and my sister in law talked to the owners and employees downstairs multiple times to turn it down. They did NOTHING and... More

The menu here is solid and tasty and the atmosphere and service are always really good. I would like to go more to hear the music but it tends to start a little late.

Rick's should be called "Mix" -- it does well in some areas, but falls short in others. The location on the square is great. Accessible and in an interesting part of town. The layout is spacious -- you are not elbow-to-elbow with other patrons. Service was good. Food was tasty -- you could tell the chef was experienced and made... More
