Mind you we liked the Ritz in the past. On this visit - menu was not very appealing - too much red cat - no Ritz - kitchen mucked up the order - food was not very good - and price was 20 percent over what we would have expected to pay even for the vineyard - so we can't... More

The website says it is closed right now but that is not true it is open for brunch on Sundays and it was the most amazing Brunch I've ever had. Fresh handmade Thai style chicken dumplings kale salad and the famous brussel sprouts roasted of course. The rest of the food that came out before my eyes to other tables... More

Visited with friends and was very impressed with quality of food and service. Brussels sprouts are a must try! Ben was our waiter, he took great care of us. First year the Red Cat staff also was here and the joined forces was phenomenal. Must try for winter dining on the island

Had a great time. Stopped in for an afternoon drink and ran into an old friend. We had a couple more beers, great service. My wife saw the menu and we decided to stay for supper. For an unsophisticated drinking establishment the food was most excellent. I had a steak the wife had a burger,both were cooked to perfection. We... More

Saw this 6-5 guy walk in holding dog. Held the dog up to his chest and dropped it. Next thing I see the guy behind the bar serving drinks. Unfortunately the people there think they can treat animals and customers like crap. Maybe the police should know this a-hole works there. Good chance they are looking for him.

My husband and I strolled upon Soul Kitchen Night after dinner on Thursday night. The Ritz is a total dive bar with a great bartender named Andy. They have Soul/Blues music the entire night. What a great way to end the night and burn off calories from dinner! The Mark Grandfield Band at 10 pm was very good and we... More

This is a great local bar, a really nice "dive" bar. We had couple of great drinks there and a few laughs with the bartender and some of the local regulars.

Chef Ben deForest moves over from the Red Cat Kitchen to the Ritz for the winter. The Ritz Cafe is open for lunch and for dinner. Prices are VERY reasonable and the food is homestyle and delicious. I've had the "Blue Plate Special" several times and each time it has been sensational. The Blue Plate Special is always $10. The... More

I went because I knew from eating at his Red Cat Kitchen that the new chef Ben DeForest is terrific. I am 70+ years old and worried that the Ritz bar noise would be annoying. I went at 6 p.m.and I lucked into a night on which a good acoustic guitarist was playing (not too loud) Ate the best crab... More
