"In general, the experience was good. Sometimes we get noisy neighbors who talk too loud. Also, it would help if the waiters did not rush people. This is a place where people don't go just to eat and leave. It is also to hang out and relax. So, when waiters are too pushy, the experience is kind of ruined."

"The waitress was AWFUL, but fortunately the manager I think her name was Kasha saved the day and turned it around. The waitress gave me the wrong food and never apologized. If it wasn't for the managers excellent customer service I would NEVER return ever again!"

"We went here on the referral of a friend...unfortunately, we were pretty disappointed. Kids hot dogs were burnt, so they went half eaten, my lobster tails tasted boiled, not grilled ( no flavor) and wife's teriyaki chicken was over cooked and dry.....seating at the exit door was disappointing considering the potential view...they were busy, so service was slow, candle on table wouldn't light, so waiter just gave up....really struggling to find ANYTHING good about the place"

"We were running a little late and called to be sure we would not lose our reservation. I was told no problem and thank you for calling see you soon. We had a wonderful view of Eagle Creek Lake as the sun was setting. We all enjoyed our appetizers and dinners. The calamari was great and my seafood platter was like none that I ever had.
From the moment we walked in we were greeted with friendly and polite associates .
I live in Greenwood and the short drive was well worth it and will be making it again soon.

"Took my wife on a date last week since we both enjoy seafood. The food was very good and our server Eric was very attentive to our needs.
The hostess set us a window side table overlooking the dock, since we had a special request for it.
For all the raves and rants for RCB, hoping that the atmosphere would be semi formal in the evenings, my wife was dressed up in evening wear but unfortunately we stood out, as the only well dressed couple amidst the other guests wearing casual and less than casual dress code.
Certainly made her feel a bit odd looking at other women in jeans and t-shirts.
Will look for other occasions to dress up and visit again, as the food was astounding.

"We had not been to Rick's in years. We live on the south side, almost in Greenwood. So, I guess we don't think about going to that area when we are going out. But , we need to. The food , drinks and service is wonderful."

"By chance, my wife and I ran into some old friends during the holiday season. We all agreed to meet for dinner after the holiday season and decided to go to Rick's Boatyard. Reservations were made for a party of six. We enjoyed good food, good service and good music. A good time was had by all.
We will return to Rick's some time in the future."

"When we arrived for our reservation, we were told that there would be a wait, as the tables were not turning over. After 20 minutes we settled for a seat in the bar. We then discovered why the tables were not turning over...no service. Waited 15 minutes to be approached by a server, then gave up and left."

"Met out of town friends for Christmas exchange. Comfortable seating. Stayed most of the evening and waiter never hurried us, very friendly and engaging. Had catfish sandwich. Portion was very sizable with two sides. The homemade potato chips are a must try! One person ordered a veggie pizza and loved the different favors and the thin crust. Wines were good and reasonably priced. Also enjoy coming here on a warmer night and sitting on the deck overlooking Eagle Creek. Special place!"

"Using Open Table to book our reservation to at Ricks Cafe Boatyard was very easy and simple to use. I was able to let the restaurant know that we were celebrating my wife's birthday. Upon arrival to the restaurant we were greeted with smiles and a beaded necklace was placed around her neck. We were taken immediately to our table with a view of the lake. Service was good and the food is always excellent. This is one of our favorite restaurants and we'll use Open Table again to book."

"The greatest strength of Rick's is that by virtually any criterion the place earns a top
ranking. The waterfront setting is exceptional, particularly on a clear day, as the sun drops below the horizon. This is the sort of iconic restaurant you will return to again and again, and particularly bring out of town guests to. The entrees themselves are not that exotic (no ostrich on the menu, for example) but the nuances of preparation make dining s delight, yet they can accommodate those with food allergies.
