Ric's Grill - Steak and Seafood

Located in downtown Edmonton, Ric's Grill is an upbeat little restaurant that my husband and I had the pleasure of visiting last Saturday thanks to two of our sons.  It was a gift from them and one of the best!  The service was attentive, the ambience perfect, and the food absolutely delicious!  My husband had a steak with the house special mashed potatoes, vegetables and a Greek Salad.  I chose the Chicken Tetrazzini (chicken and penne noodles in sauce) accompanied by an organic salad drizzled with balsamic vinaigrette dressing.  The sauces and dressings are made in house with the exception of ranch dressing.  As the aromas enveloped us, we knew we were in for a treat.  The chicken was tender, the vegetables cooked to perfection and the sauce on my dish was exquisite!  My husband's steak, cooked to medium-well, was a bit gristly but the side of potatoes mashed with carrots and basil was delectable.  For dessert we ordered creme brulee.  Though the customers at the table next to us raved about this dessert, we were less pleased.  Next time I will go for the cheesecake. 

The staff are excellent and very knowledgeable.  Our waitress was sure to ask our opinions on the foods.  Not just if everything was good but our opinion.  I heard her offer the same request to other connoiseurs nearby.  Definitely a must visit.  Make sure you have your credit card on hand or plenty of cash.  Good food and service comes with a price.

Note there is a location in West Edmonton as well as franchises in Calgary, Lethbridge, Sherwood Park.



  1. Maybe you should be a restaurant critic & go around having meals on the house & writing about them for " Palette" magazine in Edmonton.

    And, yes go for the cheesecake!
