Visiting Ricky’s was a sheer waste of our time and money.
The atmosphere was nice with live music in the weekends. However, the food was way below average. For the high end price they charge, the actual food quality equals a cafe inside a Holiday Inn at best.
Their French toast like ones from a local store. I think Rickey's needs to decide who their target audience is; you can't avoid hiring a real chef if you want to charge hefty price for your dishes.

What do you desire out of a restaurant? Obviously you wish for delicious cuisines, soothing ambience and memorable experience. Now coming to the real story, our experience of Ricky’s turned out to be exactly the opposite.

I went to Ricky’s with my family and was looking forward to a great evening. The food was bland, the ambience poor and the service extremely disappointing. The staff of the restaurant was extremely unprofessional and was simply not interested to serving us. The food which was served was either burnt or uncooked and we had to leave it after 2 or 3 bites.

I have vowed never to return to the restaurant again.

Having driven past Rickey's for years and never thought to eat there, a friend suggested it for dinner. We were very excited to try a new place that promised the best apple pancake in town. The place was ordinary, but we still had hopes for amazing food stuffs. The risotto was simply tasteless, and the butter was floating at the sides. Apple pancake was a huge disappointment with the taste not even ordinary. Disappointment is not the word is would use; in fact we were ‘angry’ with fake promises of delicious food. We have never returned to the restaurant and will never will!

I took my boys out for dinner as usual, but this time we went to Ricky’s. My little boys are ardent rib eaters and we have our growing list of favorite restaurants. Sadly though, Ricky’s narrowly missed my approval. Though the food was just fine, the way dried ketchup and tidbits of food were glued to the table took away my appetite. My little boys were equally dejected by the sight.
