I held a military moms and tots luncheon here in December. The staff barely acknowledged us the entire time. Idiots at the bar were smoking right next to the children with no regard or care. Whether we are outside or not, if you know children are nearby, I think you could hold off on the smoke. Not only that, for... More

My wife and I have been to St Pete's Beach many time and we always stop at rick's Reef; both with and without our kids. The atmosphere is very relaxing and the people are great. It's a great place to stop and have a drink. The bar is setup so half of it is inside and half is outside. Plenty... More

We all ordered beer which was very cold - hit the spot. Our waitress was very friendly and recommended a few dishes included what... More

Well, this might not have been the busiest place on New Year's Eve, but I bet it can pack them in at other times. This place attracted me as it looked like your typical beach bar/restaurant. You know...the one you leave your cold winter state to visit...and have a cold tropical beverage and some good eats. Well, you will find... More

We've visited twice - both times we were there around 6pm and it was not crowded, they must have a big later night crowd. The inside is small but it looks like they have a larger bar/outdoor area ( we went on two colder evenings in January). The server was extremely friendly, casual and attentive. The food was very good.... More

You can eat inside but why would you want to when there is plenty of outside seating around an open bar when the sun is shining in sunny St Pete. We ordered two fried shrimp dinners and beer. Lunch came with two sides, I ordered fries and cole slaw and hubby ordered fries and corn on the cob. The corn... More

Our family and our puppy visited Rick's. They are pet friendly. The puppy got water before we did!! The service was excellent. The grouper sandwich was very good, but very small for the $14 price.

A Casual Dining restaurant with a focus on fresh ingredients located on St. Pete Beach. Plenty of outdoor seating on the patio, and indoor seating, air conditioned in the summer and heated in the winter. Serving fresh seafood, and home-made chicken, pork and beef selections, all prepared fresh, by hand, specifically for you. Sauces, vegetables and mixed dishes prepared daily, in-house, and always from fresh ingredients. The friendly staff, and regular local crowd, make it a fun place to hang out. With a full-service bar, and plenty of indoor and outdoor seating at the bar, there is something for everyone. The restaurant is family friendly, and dogs are welcome in the outdoor seating area.
