Great food, service and atmosphere!!! The seafood and other entrees are excellent and they have great appetizers too. Tuesday's are fun with trivia also.

Great place and a must visit if you're in the Topsail area! A very diverse selection on the menu. April our server was AWESOME and the food couldn't have been better. If you don't eat here you're missing out on one of the better dinning experiences in the area! We visit the Island several times a year and Ricks is... More

We have been eating at Rick's for almost ten years and have never been disappointed. It can get very busy on certain nights but it is worth the wait. Just be patient.The staff is very friendly and the food is great. Our family favorite is the fried shrimp platter with the Louis sauce. We also love the grilled shrimp appetizer... More

We had a good time at Ricks. The food was good and reasonably priced. There is a wide selection of foods to choose from. No complaints...although I do wonder if they were having problems with the servers. Both our table and the one next to us seemed to be waiting and the servers (2 different ones) were apologizing. We are... More

Had lunch here on a local motorcycle ride with a friend. Great cheeseburgers! Service was prompt and courteous for us. Good prices. Would stop again.

Both my wife and I had stomach problems after eating here. I had the burger and she had the oysters. We are not sure of the cause. The couple that we were with had the shrimp platters and had no problems. The food was marginal. The service was very good. We most likely won't be returning.

Rick and Linda are wonderful hosts. Paul always takes good care of us. The food, from casual to uptown, is great. Their signature New England clam chowder is the best we've ever had...anywhere. We've never been disappointed.

I usually go for the fresh fish, but every thing on the menu is good. It's glorified bar food, but that is not a bad thing.
