This place is a staple in Chagrin Falls, has been for years and it never changes. Great burgers and the best white clam chowder. The fries were a little soggy, that's about the only negative. Friendly service, comfy atmosphere. During the warm weather the outdoor seating is fun and adds some badly needed extra seating. Nice bar area and plenty... More

Usually go for lunch because dinner and after are too crowded, which means it's a popular place and for good reason. The burgers are amazing, the fries are the best! but my favorite is the greek salad, OMG it's fantastic, so fresh and the feta they use is the best I've ever had & I'm a big feta fan. I'm... More

Great ribs! A great place where locals go. The service is great. There is entertainment normally every weekend. During the summer they can also seat you outside. This is right on Main Street just north of the river and falls.

Food quality and service varies a lot. Burgers and ribs are usually the best option. Bar and outside patio are fun. If you're going in the afternoon, be aware that they don't serve food for a while in the late afternoon.

I enjoy dining here and meeting friends, but out of the many times I have been there, I would say my food has ben just o.k. Seems like many people rave about the food, but I have simply not found it to be anything special. Pleasant, friendly atmosphere with friendly servers.

Having had many meals over the years at Rick's Cafe, I can say that the food is back on top as of this past week for me. I have always liked the baby backs, the fries, and their house salad dressing with dill and blue cheese. Hmmm, good! But after lunch their this past week, I must say the food... More

We had lunch at the bar. Our server was great! Don't know her name :( but she was friendly and helpful in explaining the menu and the area. We each had sandwich with amazing tomato soup or salad. And it was cheap!!!!

My wife and I stopped in for lunch while in Chagrin Falls. Stopped by the local popcorn shop and asked one of their employees where we should eat. She said - Rick's Cafe. Not sure what she found so appealing at this place. Food was average and I noticed that the tables were not wiped clean after people left. Service... More

Rick's is justifiably known for its ribs and burgers and they do not disappoint. I have had very good salmon and sales. But we go for the live music and it can be hard to get a seat. Service can be slow and the dance floor is way too small, but it's a great time when a decent band is... More
