Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We went on Wednesday 24th Jan 2024 at 7pm. We were a table of four, we ordered a chicken burger, a plant based burger a mushroom burger and a normal burger with two pots of chips. All the food came out very quick. There was...only two other tables in the main seating area. Our main issue is that the chips were not even warm and our burgers were just warm. Ricks is not a cheap place to eat anymore and if you cannot get the food hot there is not much hope really. Staff are disinterested and no one even comes to ask if your food is okay.More

2nd time we have visited here and yet again it didn't disappoint. From the atmosphere to the food a joy to experience. This time I had the Chicken & Waffles in a Maple BBQ sauce and it was sublime. I washed it down with Peanut...Butter and Chocolate Milkshake ( Which was probably a step too far but had to be done and didn't disappoint. Family had Burgers and delicious loaded FriesMore

The burger was very average. $18 for a basic burger with beef pattie, lettuce, tomato, onion and cheese. Very dry and the beef pattie was bland with no hint of salt. No chips with the burger either. Rip off for a basic burger.

The vibe of this place was amazing. You would never expect to find it. As busy as the place was. Our meals came out in great time. And taste delicious. They had live music in the beer garden.

What a great experience!, had a terrific time checking out the venue & nostalgia, atmosphere was terrific. Loved the beer & especially the especially burgers, best burger I can remember. HINT!, if you can go midweek as there are less crowds & plenty of parking.

Lovely place to check out. Pity meals and service has gone downhill. As per everywhere portion sizes have dropped on all plates, but the price has lifted. Really do hope it improves.

Very popular and busy spot on the weekend with live music and a great vibe. Personally didn't love the food and I wouldn't recommend for those with dietary requirements as there is little to no choice of what you are able to eat. For the...beef burger lover it's not a bad option.More

We haven't been here for ages, so decided to go for lunch and try out the new menu. We had a Deluxe Burger (not very big and probably not as good as we've had there previously) a Halloumi Salad (ok) Fries & a Parmy (yum!)...Burger, salad and fries came out super quick. Lot's of dog's hair on the table. Overall it was a pleasant enough experience.More

Very average food. Nice setting. Service is the local kids doing their best. It’s a help yourself situation for soft drinks but we weren’t told that when ordering. Had chicken and waffles: very dry. Chips were too. Portion size not great.

Was charged a surcharge even though it wasn't a public holiday or even the weekend. Lemon lime and bitters $7.11 (used to be ~$6) and chicken tenders $12.69 when it should have been $12 according to the menu. Just tell me there's a surcharge instead...of saying there "may be" one. And have a jolly good reason for charging when out of the ordinary. Staff were super stressed out... so visible and it really affects the customer experience. Has lost its friendly vibe. Burgers are tiny compared to what they used to be. Menu has changed; less food, more expensive and smaller sizes. Not nearly as good as it used to be.More

Yes it is. They would be in trouble if they served something else as it would be illegal to do so.
