Went for lunch today. My wife ordered the the two-item deal ( two mains + two sides for $11.) I got the special of the day (fried mullet basket. My wife's fried oysters and grilled amberjack were very good. Mullet was also good. French fries and onion rings were average, hush puppies and coleslaw were very good. There was no... More

Decided to try this place one night having found a coupon for it and while we left full, we probably won't be going back. The food is decent but there are better options.

From the outside the place does not look like much of anything. We went with a local person who knows the area and has been there before. Inside there were choices of being in the sports bar with various TVs going with NFL games or a more quiet area without TV. The food was well prepared, generous and tasty. Our... More

After reading the reviews, I thought I would finally check this place out. I went to Rick's back in the 90s at a different location but not since they've been on Eglin Blvd. The two times I have been to Rick's have been over the past week. I like the new U shape bar. The employees have been very friendly... More

The food was ok. The atmosphere lacking. It seemed like a great place for locals to meet for drinks and dinner. Most of the patrons seemed to know each other and were having drinks and a really good time. Probably wouldn't go back.

We always go to Rick's when in town, brought friends with us and didn't disappoint! We had amberjack po boys, slamberjack taquitos, and slamberjack po boys, crab legs, and drinks...Kasce was awesome server! They've expanded the space so plenty of room to watch the games...Rick's is a must stop!

We were on vacation with some friends who are Ricks regulars. Let me tell you Ricks did not disappoint. We started with Buffalo shrimp and slamberjack tequitos. Both prepared very well. I must give a shout to the bar manager who selects the tequila. They carry Corralejo and this is the first American bar that I've seen that has it.... More

We were told about this restaurant. It was OK. It wasn't horrible and it wasn't great. The food was OK. If you don't want seafood, the food on the menu is pretty bland.
