Best seafood on the island. We patronize this joint multiple time every summer during our vacations. This past summer our trips were limited and we only spent one week at the shore because of COVID. Ordered several dinners from Ricks for pickup. They were very...careful in following COVID protocols. Food as good as always. Recommendations: CRABS CRABS CRABS (with Old Bay), Stuffed flounder, or shrimp, crab soups (new England and Manhattan), Steamed Shrimp. Their selection of raw fish is terrific, worth getting Cape May flounder, or swordfish for grilling or pan frying at home. They will also do trays of steamed lobster which are terrrificMore

Sorry this is a little late, but I have to comment on this place. As the world's most travelled man, I have had seafood on 6 different continents, But dollar for dollar this was as good as any...and for sure the best anywhere on or...around the jersey shore!! So good ,I had to come back 2 days later for another helping!! The Ahi steaks were as good as I have had anywhere in the world!! Delicious beyond, a giant portion and unbelievable value!!!The seafood combo could have fed 4 but 2 of us feasted on it! Everything on the menu is delicious, great portions and outstanding value. If it takes a little drive it's worth it....I would have driven an hour for that food. A word to the wise....this place is VERY popular and they only take so many orders a day. If you want to order dinner tonight, you better order before noon for sure...best bet is to order the night before!!. This is a long standing family owned place that takes great pride in quality, freshness and value for money. Can't wait until my next visit!!More

The seafood is the best on the island. Aside from the wait, which tells you how great the food is, Rick's is second to none

My wife and I recently got a dozen hardshell crabs here, cooked to order. They were ready when promised, nice size and very good ! Constant stream of traffic for takeout customers, which tells you something in itself. Strictly takeout, no tables inside.

This is “the best” seafood on the island bar none. Drove 20 minutes both ways and it was unbelievably on point. Shrimp were huge and not overdone, not greasy and the breading is perfect. Scallops were sweet and good sized. The prices are very reasonable....The quality is above any sit down restaurant I have been to in the past few years. This is my new regular stop when I have a seafood craving! You guys do it right!More

Definitely recommend this place! Rick was so nice and helped me put together a blue crab package to bring home to my Dad for Father’s Day. Everything kept fresh all the way to Buffalo, NY when we ate it the next day! Delicious!

I do not know their off season hours. You will probably need to call Rick's for the hours if any.
