In this day and age, the restaurant business is probably one of the most competitive small business markets on the planet. Having long been known as an incredible town for dining selection, it seems like Peterborough has a new restaurant opening up almost weekly.

Cindy and Dave Crowley, owners of Ricky’s All Day Grill (located at 898 Monaghan Rd.), realize the need to stand out in such a dog-eat-dog day and age. Never ones to be happy to see their competition struggle, Cindy and Dave’s dream is to see the entire market thrive because they know every dollar spent at a local restaurant is a dollar coming back into the community.

Having been owners of Ricky’s since it opened in 2007, the Crowleys brought a type of restaurant to their hometown that they felt was missing.

Although it is actually a national chain, having been created originally in 1962, Ricky’s is fairly new to the province of Ontario, and the Crowleys have been given flexibility in creating the atmosphere and menu they know their loyal customers love—and that new customers are always pleasantly surprised by!

Ricky’s is a full 3 meal restaurant, offering an all-day breakfast menu, along with specific lunch and dinner menus.

At breakfast, it’s suggested you try their Eggs Benedict, Ricky’s Proprietary Pancakes, and/or their Signature Brekkie Bowls. For lunch, fresh soups, Prime Rib Sandwich, and their Double Feature & Triple Feature options (available Monday to Friday lunch only) take the forefront.

To finish it all off, dinner features such options as homemade lasagna, liver and onions (word is they have the best in town), steak and ribs, turkey dinner, and prime rib on weekends! Also, Ricky's $4 daily drink specials are fantastic—with their Mimosa Mondays, Domestic Beer Tuesdays, Wine Wednesdays, Craft Beer Thursdays, Long Island Fridays and Social Saturdays. Not to mention their Super Sundays—where you get to pick any of the daily drink specials!

Cindy, Dave and their staff use local suppliers and ingredients wherever possible with many of the restaurant’s signature dishes prepared from scratch in an open concept kitchen viewable to the well laid out and comfortable dining room.


Connected to the dining room is a popular private room with audio-visual capability that has space for up to 36 people. This room is ideal for meetings, birthday parties, anniversaries, baby showers, sports drafts, and bridal parties to name just a few options! (Call 705.749.1100 for more info on booking this room.)

Dave and Cindy are life-long residents of Peterborough and have seen their entire family grow up in our city. They have been involved in the community for a long time with various sports and charitable causes, and are proud sponsors of the Canada Day Concert at Del Crary Park (part of Peterborough Musicfest). This year marks their 8th year as Title Sponsor for this great event!  

If you’re looking for a relaxed family friendly atmosphere to bring the whole gang to—or even a place to come with friends for a drink and to enjoy the latest game—Ricky’s All Day Grill is the perfect option for you.

Cindy, Dave, and their friendly staff invite you to give them a try at any time of day and know you'll be coming back for more!
