I used the tripadvisor reviews, and Rik's rated extremely high. Our visit was less than what was expected. The café was dark and dingy, and looked old without character. We ordered the Hawaiian Wasabi Alfredo and the Chicken Chesapeake. The Hawaiian Wasabi was excellent, but...More

Server was pleasant but slow. My dish was amazing in taste and portion (Hawaiian Ahi pasta). My partner's dish was disappointing on taste and portion (Chicken Chesapeake) We choose this place based on Trip Advisor reviews. Would have been beter to go to Jersey Mikes.

Tucked away in a strip mall, this is the place to go for excellent food in the Hagerstown area. Inviting atmosphere, innovative menu, reasonable prices, expert preparation, attentive service. Truly a step above.

Rik’s is a good break from the norm. Unique menu for the area and always good daily specials. Fries all good, normal and sweet potato.

The food was delicious and the service was quick even though the restaurant was crowded. Try the mussels. They're out of this world. Too bad it's not near my home. I'd eat there often.

Rik's is located is a strip mall that looks somewhat abandoned at certain times of the day and it's not a location where you would think to find really good eats. I'm a total foodie and work in Washington DC... I have access to some...More
