Rick’s Cafe Boatyard has grown and evolved significantly since opening in 1994. The space now boasts several decks – an awning on the side of the restaurant, an “extended deck” with retractable siding to keep rain and wind away, and a large bar with an area for nightly live music.
The inside dining space includes a large dining room with a waterfront view from nearly every seat, a bustling bar, and two private event areas — one of which comes with a private outdoor terrace. While the menu has changed over the years, one thing remains constant: Rick’s has the freshest seafood in Indianapolis. Our seafood is carefully chosen from locations around the world, and our steaks and chops are locally sourced and of the finest quality.
Rick’s Cafe Boatyard is open every day of the year besides Christmas Day, and is a true gem on the west side of Indianapolis. Many patrons know Rick and Tena, and stop by their table to say hi when dining in the restaurant. The atmosphere at Rick’s is one-of-a-kind. Stop in to see for yourself!
