Rick's Café Boatyard, located at 345 Riverfront Drive in Omaha, is more than just amazing food served in an eclectic atmosphere; it's a celebration of Omaha's extensive musical heritage. Owner Rick Albrecht has assembled an able bodied staff to provide you with a top-notch dining experience.
Shoving off happy isn't hard to accomplish, but deciding what to choose for dinner may be, so here are some suggestions: Start with Coconut Shrimp, served piping hot with a side of Goma Wakame and Sweet Chili sauce for dipping. Delectable! Then try a bowl of New England Seafood Chowder or a Boatyard Caesar Salad. Fantastic! And once your appetite is primed, it's time to drop anchor on your hunger: Go all out with an Omaha Steaks USDA Choice hand-cut to order Filet Mignon, accompanied by a Lobster Tail. Both cooked just the way you like them, and served with sides of your choice. Oh so good! (These are just a few of the many opportunities available here, check out Rick's website to see the full menu.)
Your thirst is not to be ignored of course, and a full indoor/outdoor bar with CocaCola products, an extensive wine list of over 250 selections (from Mondavi to Opus One) and nightly drink specials are sure to give you something refreshing to go down the hatch. If you have room, a slice of Carrot Cake with delicious cream cheese frosting or a fresh Brownie ala Mode will top off your meal just so!
Children's portions are also on the menu, so bring the kids if you like, or bring up to 120 guests to a banquet on the private deck upstairs. And if you are in the mood for some entertainment, Rick's supports some of Omaha's most talented musicians by providing cover-free live music all summer long, on Friday and Saturday nights from 9pm til 1am, and Sundays from 3pm til 7pm. Outdoor seafood parties and free salsa lessons are happening regularly, so log on to www.rickscafeboatyard.com for all the details, or call (402)345-4545 for reservations.
