We've only been there once and waited a long time for a seat. When we were finally seated we were so close to the table next to us it was extremely uncomfortable! The food was fine but I hated the closeness. Not worth the wait.

Very small and tight quarters. Food was very good, service was good, but the closeness really got to me. Not good at all for handicapped people.

I love this place. Great breakfast and lunches. Specials are always good. I'm not sure if the place was sold or what, all different waitstaff. I'll have to keep an eye on the food quality. But, for now still good food.

I stopped in with my daughter and granddaughter and the food was great, the staff was attentive and quick and the prices were fair. My granddaughter is a fussy ten- year-old and she loved the food

always have the eggs with hash well done and homemade toast. You never need lunch when you eat at Rick's for breakfast!

Don't let the line scare you away it moves quickly! The eggs benedict & homefries are the best! This is our weekly breakfast spot
