Restaurant details
Reviewed 26 October 2012

I am a Local and I can tell you the food has gone way down. I was around when Rick owned the restaurant and it was a great place. We spent $80.00 for pizza and wings last week and as one of the people I was with said "the wings were like eating tree bark" Pizza not great no one even wanted the leftovers. They do have some good beer on draft. The owner is not anywhere as friendly or the host Rick was. Too bad it was a great place for many years. The only reason we ever go there is there is no where else to go. Could be a great place with the right people running it.

Rick's has hearty food and a big menu. It's also very close to Four Columns and is great for families. You can get all the basics here, and it's good.

After a disappointing brew pub experience in Brattelboro we headed home and decided to stop at Ricks. We had stopped for a beer before but never had the food. Too bad we didn't just stick to beer. The dining room was busy as it was pizza night bUt it appeared that there was only 1 server and 1 bartender. They couldn't keep up. We ordered medium burgers that were well done with raw bacon. We should have stayed home!

why why did we waste our one night in Newfane in this dive? Take a look around and you could be in the forties,the decor is plank walls with beer signs. The menu is from the 70's, outdated boring, blah. My haddock was not fresh, not seasoning, no breadcrumbs. Hubby's prime rib was okay; french fries were stale. My "cosmo" was served in a shot glass...waz up with that? So if you want to eat unlimited portions, be my guest...if you want food worth eating look elsewhere.

i am sorry to here that your time here was not what you would have liked. we have been making changes to the menu in the past few months, to have all fresh produce from local farms, we now serve certified angus beef, and all of our fish is deliver twice a week. ricks is a time capsual, all of the fire fighter collection has been given to ricks over the past 30 years and means alot to those who have given, and given in memory of a loved one. we are not trying to be something that we are not, but we do try to sever good home cooked food. we will take what you have said and try very hard to better sever those that come in to feel that they have gotten a fair deal. we hope that if you come back in that you would be willing to introduce yourself, so we can give it another try. thank you.

Food was just okay, but bartender was great! Not a lot of beer variety.
