About The Waterboy

"Since I opened The Waterboyd, it's been my priority to develop relationships with our local farmers.

Farmers work harder than anybody. I always try to keep that at the forefront. I like hard working people that do an honest day's work and follow their heart and do what they want to do, and that's our local farming community.

We would not be doing the type of cooking we're doing at The Waterboy if it wasn't for them. We get deliveries from the people that actually produce this stuff! We know their kids, we know their brothers. That's, in part, why I started The Waterboy."

Chef Rick's Must Order

"People come to our restaurant for the Caesar Salad, which is hilarious. I once took it off the menu and you would have thought we kidnapped a child! I've never received so many complaints in my life. We always have some sort of fish and shellfish stew, and right now it's Cioppino. We're also known for our Veal Sweetbreads, which are really good."
