Rick’s Seafood To Change Ownership, Rick Retires

There is some bittersweet happening in North Wildwood today.

Rick’s Seafood, located at 435 W Spruce Ave, has been a part of our community for the past 36 years years.

In a Facebook post online today, Rick announced that he and his family are retiring. (See the full post at the bottom of the article)

Not to worry though, Rick’s Seafood isn’t going anywhere!

Longtime Rick’s Seafood employee, Mike Lake, will be continuing the tradition of the business.

We don’t expect anything to change in terms of food. It will still continue to be some of the best seafood on the island.

We wish Rick and his family a happy retirement. Thank you for everything you have done for our community and my family.

“When I started this business I was 25 years old and could never have imagined it would take off as it did. It’s been an incredible 36 years, and we have only to thank our loyal and trusting customers for that! Thanks to each and every one of you that have waited in line and called hours ahead to not only enjoy fresh seafood but to support our business. Thank you for making Rick’s Seafood a part of your family traditions. What makes every hour worked and every piece of fish that was breaded, is thinking of all of you enjoying the meals with your family and friends.  Also, we could not have done any of this without our amazing employees over the years!

We are so happy that our longtime employee, Mike Lake, is taking over the helm and will continue the tradition we started 36 years ago, serving the highest quality seafood available and utmost customer service!

We have enjoyed every second of owning Ricks Seafood for 36 years. We cherish every friendship that we have made!  It has been an incredible journey with all of you.

Now it is time for Colleen and I and our children to enjoy a new phase of life”
