The name Rick’s Café Boatyard is one that has evolved from the Rick’s Café Americain Restaurant. Rick is Rick Albrecht, the owner and founder. The word café invokes images of a casual, friendly, open area for friends and loved ones to gather for a fine meal or cocktail. The usage of ‘boatyard’ is due to our waterfront location and the fact that our location has over 100 boat slips.
Ricks Café Boatyard is a waterfront restaurant offering its guests a panoramic view of Eagle Creek Reservoir. Rick’s offers ample but intimate seating both inside and out; as well as an extensive menu of fresh hand prepared meals offered daily. Rick’s Café Boatyard offers its guests lunch, dinner and a complete banquet facility. Our guests dine inside a beautiful, high-ceiling dining room, or outside with a breathtaking view of the water.
