My husband and I went to Ricky's recently for dinner because we had a coupon and thought we'd give it a try. We have been to the Nanaimo location a number of times for breakfast and enjoy it. I had a fairly boring pasta with pesto sauce and garlic toast. He had a burger with caesar salad. Both of us had a pop. Even with a coupon, it was $44 with tip! You can go to a fine dining restaurant for that price! The food wasn't great for the prices! The atmosphere wasn't great, and the service was just ok. I will definitely go back to the Nanaimo one for brekkie, but I would give this one a pass.

My friend and I went to check out this place when it first opened. We had seen a write up in the paper and it seemed pretty cool. I like sports bars. Walking in, the place was fairly empty. We were seated on the lower level of the restaurant. There was one other couple there. Our server was very friendly, and took our drink orders (each had a pepsi). The atmosphere is really neat, kind of different and unique. I noticed that the prices were on the high side of average. I ordered yam fries to start, which were good quality. For dinner I ordered pasta primavera and my friend ordered a chicken burger with caesar salad. The pasta was ok...the veggies were fresh and crispy, the sauce was sort of bland (seemed like just olive oil). It didn't come with any sort of bread, so the price seemed a bit excessive for the portion. My friend said her burger was just ok...bland and not very exciting. Also, the pop is not refillable! We paid $3 each for one glass of pop! When we mentioned this to the server, she apologized, but they should really let people know that! Overall, I wasn't really happy with the value. I most certainly won't rush to go back to Platinum.
