Went with the family; my food was horrible, however the rest of the family loved their food. They had seafood and I chose the Teriyaki Chicken, which was very dry and bland. We had a bad overall experience with our payment and will not return to the restaurant.

We were looking forward to our first experience at Ricks Boatyard. Unfortunately, we had a number of problems during our visit which taken together left some of our party unwilling to return and others willing to give a second try with reservations. The staff and manager were responsive to our concerns, but there were too many to create an experience that would encourage us to return.

We went to Rick's for a great dinner and view of the water outside. We were promptly seated and waited on. The view was indeed nice and our waiter was extremely attentive. The good was OK, though quite pricey. My $24 porkchops were a bit tough, though the spicy sauce helped that somewhat. I would have expected better for that price. Overall, it was a good experience and I'd probably come back for drinks or desert.

We go to Rick's every year for our anniversary. It's wonderful! We love to sit outside and watch the boats out on Eagle Creek. It's so romantic, and so relaxing. The food is DELICIOUS!! We've never had a bad meal there. They can cook a steak to it's exact doneness, and at the same time delicately cook seafood to perfection. The staff are all very friendly and on the ball!! My tea glass never went empty, not once! They even have pontoon boat tours of t

This was our first trip to Rick's and we were very impressed with the dinners. The food was hot and tasty. The tempura fried shrimp were delicious, the vegetables nice and crisp. The house salad was ho hum. Just a bunch of lettuce with a few slices of onion, one grape tomato and a few cucumber slices. Our waitress wasn't aware of the specials and had to go ask and when she was taking our order she stood behind me making me crane my neck around to talk

We took a couple who had never been there before and we were embarassed to say our food was horrible. My husband's steak was tough and chewy. I ordered the shrimp steamer and my veggies were MUSH. The other couple ordered white fish with mashed potatoes and a broiled tomatoe. I asked her about her food and she shrugged her shoulders and said she didn't care for it. The mashed potatoes tasted manufactured. Won't be going back for quite some time.

We bought a bottle of wine and when we order another he stated that you were out of it. Which was disappointing but he suggested another and we bought it. The food was remarkable.

It was very crowded, we had reservations and were seated right away. The server was nice and attentive. My food had to be sent back 3 times as it was undercooked. The server asked if I would like a new plate to go. They brought me out someone elses food. Finally the manager came over and apologized. I told him it was not my food, he said he didn't doubt it and would probably have to go to another table and apologize. He did take my dinner off the bill

My husband and I both had the Fisherman's Platter and it was well worth the money. There was enough that we had plenty to bring home and have for dinner the next night. We have been to this establishment before and we will definitely be back. You just can't beat the view!
