Went on a Tuesday with a group of 18, after jet skiing. Not a word was said about our "beach wet" attire. They did a great job accommodating us. The pina colada was delicious! Everyone was happy with their meal, we collectively tried crab dip...More

Third time to Topsail, first time to Rick's. We should've been eating here every year ! The service was great and the food even better. This is a must for any visit.

Restaurant not on the water, but food is the best I have found on Topsail. Busy, loud, and happy. Family tried everything from steak to fish fry, all very good.

Went to watch basketball. Waitress messed up drink order but we were to scared of her to send it back. Yuengling and Stella were very metallic tasting. Bud light was good. Very cold in the bar. Had to go to the bathroom to warm up.
