Great seafood served there. Atmosphere can be nice but noisy on nights that the band plays. Can be expensive, but it definitely worth to try.
During our visit to Indianapolis in September this year, we were taken to Rick's Cafe Boatyard for an evening meal. The setting was superb with views across a reservoir lake towards the setting sun. There were five of us and we all enjoyed our meals although the food was no more than averagely good. When we arrived they tried to... More
Rick's is an ideally located eatery with an excellent array of seafood choices as well as vegetarian and meat lover options. There is a large outside eating area and bar as well as plenty of inside seating for those so desiring to avoid the air and sun. I fly my plane over to Eagle Creek airport all the time and... More
Located on the banks of a large reservoir lake on the west side of town, this was a pleasant surprise to find near a big city. The restaurant and outside deck is large and can accommodate a lot of patrons, whether you prefer inside or outdoor seating. Weather permitting, there is live music on the deck and it is a... More
We were viisiting from Ohio, and I saw the good rating on Tripadvisor, so we made a reservation. I was able to make a Saturday night reservation online just an hour and a half ahead. The location is BEAUTIFUL, and we were seated immediately on the deck. Our waiter came over quickly, and all of the food/drink service was unbelievably... More
My hubby & I love seafood! We went last month.I always forget the names of dishes we have but I think we had calamari for appetizer. And salmon / mahi mahi perhaps for main course. Food tasted awesome & even though the place is a little bit rustic outside! Could do with a bit of renovation. Nevertheless beautiful sunset view... More
This restaurant succeeds in bringing excellent seafood and a seaside feel to the middle of the continent. My daughter had the King Crab legs and they were perfectly prepared. I had the tempura shrimp and they were huge and served with two delicious sauces. My son's tilapia were thick, flavorful, and perfectly seasoned. We all had a Caesar side salad... More
We recently ate at Rick's Café Boatyard for my father-in-law's 82nd birthday. It was a Saturday night, and the place was packed, so a reservation is highly recommend on the weekend. With our reservation, our party of five was seated immediately after our arrival. We started with the crab cake appetizers, and they were just about perfect - lots of... More
Stick to the basics. Too much cream sauce on everything. French onion soup terrible. Chicken Alfredo ok. Stuffed mushrooms layered in bad sauce.
We experenced the worst customer service of any restaurant ever at Ricks. They apparently are so busy that they just don't care about the satisfaction of their customers. We had a reservation and were sat outside on the waterfront. The sun was so bright and two of the four of us had no sun glasses that we asked our waiter... More
