Inside Rick's

Deep mahogany wood…warm, subtle lighting…soulful jazz music…the delicate clinking of wine glasses…the soft murmur of voices…heartfelt laughter…this is the mix of sensations and ambiance at Rick Erwin’s West End Grille that creates the wholly unique and inviting atmosphere at Rick Erwin’s West End Grille.
