Rick's Cafe Boatyard Restaurant Review

: Waterfront dining, indoors or out, is offered at Rick's Cafe Boatyard, where the large expanse of windows takes the diner to the wharf and beyond. Be it a wedding or family night out, this restaurant is a favorite of all generations for its snappy yet casual atmosphere and a menu that suits all moods. Listen to live jazz from the bar and nibble on tempura battered calamari while choosing between spicy plum-glazed jumbo shrimp, Creole crab filet or a mesquite grilled pork rib-eye with roasted garlic butter. Team the wood-fired grilled vegetable pizza with the Boatyard Caesar for lighter fare. There's an ample selection of wines to fit most tastes and a few craft beers. Dessert options vary; among them is chocolate cake.
