The food is great (try the blackened grouper sandwich) the atmosphere is fun, drinks are good even if they are in plastic cups, but if you want the overall experience come when Billy ELVIS Lindsey is performing...you won't be

I wish I liked Rick's more. It has great atmosphere on the water, but there is a smell in the restaurant (inside) that I just can't get past. Rather unappetizing. So I would recommend this for Happy Hour versus a meal.

The place was clean, and the servers were fast and attentive. The shots came in plastic shot glasses, yick what a joke here i am paying premium prices and i get a plastic cup. Other than that, the oysters were great, the onion rings were great with beer batter, and the atmosphere was perfect for a real happy hour after work or after boating or fishing. I'm bringing the group from work next time and we will give em hell about the plastic shot glasses, lol.

Pros: Excellent Raw Oysters

Cons: Plastic shot glasses, and the plastic soda cups are small

Ricks is awesome! Great food! It's right on the river and we just pull up in the boat and order a corona with a burger. This is the life! Fun tee shirts, too!

Rick's Rocks! This is the place if you want to hang with locals. No tourists here. Great food at great prices. Oysters are the best in town. Its like being in the Keys but your right in the middle of Tampa. Take your out of town guests there-they'll love it.

Great place to have a great time. Open everyday of the year with a great view of the Hillsborough River. Can come by car or boat and have an outsite bar so smokers can drink and smoke at the same time.

This is a great place to go with a group of friends for a casual night out by the river. The wait staff is friendly and the menu prices are quite resonable. Their gruper sandwich is very good and I would also recommend their champ burger with all the fixins. You can choose to dine indoors or outdoor by the river. If your mode of transportation is by boat then the hillsborough river is the way to go. If you want to try something different, think about dinning at Rick's and then taxi the water taxi that makes a stop there and cruise around the city and back! It would be a great way to view the city by water if you dont have access to your own boat. All in all, I would recommend this eatery for those who want the feel of a casual but friendly local restaurant.

If your looking for a great place to dine, this is not the place. But for a fun time, cold beer and just a unique hang out this is the place. A place to hide a way....

Pros: on the water, music

Cons: average food

I find Rick's very casual but not "low class". A truly unique restaurant unlike any other in tampa. If you want to go where the locals go, head over to Rick's.The most reasonable waterfront hangout ever. It even has live music 7 days a week! You can visit by land or boat.

Pros: atmosphere, prices, attractive wait staff

.

If you want a place where you can totally let your hair down and feel like you're at a festival/fair, eat here, outside, when they've got some music. The servers were all nice and helpful, but the seating (outside) was uncomfortable, the food was average, and the decorum was virtually non-existent.

Wonderful food, relaxing setting, and great prices. One of those little places you keep your secret or share with everyone if you are so inclined.
