About Us

Our Name

The name Rick's Café Boatyard is one that has evolved from the Rick's Café Americain Restaraunt. 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.

Our Concept

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.

Our Corporate Family

Rick’s Café Boatyard has two locations Indianapolis, Indiana and Omaha, Nebraska. Both locations strive on water sites to enhance the nautical theme. There are other Rick’s in the making so watch for the Boatyard to come to a neighborhood near you.
