Rick's is a riverfront bar and grill with a marina in Tampa, and it's the marina that makes it a popular place for boaters. Arrive by land or sea, and if by land, there are plenty of signs along the way to help you find Rick's on the River. It's off the beaten path and a little out of the way in Tampa. Rick's draws a down home crowd that likes to have a good time and watch a weekend football game. You won't find the typical "beach crowd" here, but you will find plenty of room for everyone from bikers to boaters.
Rick's is more of a campus than a typical bar. From tables in the covered bar area to umbrella tables outside you can have your favorite drink and meet new friends from all walks of life. Rick's does feature music every day of the week starting at 5 PM. Rick's is open every day of the year and is open until 3:00 AM Friday and Saturday.
If you are a boater, this may be just the place to come for a cold drink and some music or a football game. If you aren't a boater and are looking for a very different kind of beach bar, you've found it.
