Perfect for lunch! Get there early or you may have to wait for a seat. Food is always awesome and service is great even in the busy times. Never a bad experience here.

DH and I ordered lunch and it was definitely disappointing. I had the Mediterranean Salad, which had browning lettuce. The dressing was obviously from a bottle. The potato skins were something that easily could have come from the freezer section at the grocery store. DH had the buffalo chicken sandwich, it was okay. Definitely not a place to dine if...

When we arrived it was after 11-hours of driving, and looking for a quiet meal. The sports-bar atmosphere and crowded space was a bit more than we bargained for. The food was good, and the service was attentive. It was most convenient to our hotel, so we stayed despite the loud and boisterous other patrons.

The place is noisy but we were seated in the front room which was considerably quieter. We had boiled shrimp and salmon. Both were great. The wine list was limited but they had a few premium wines at decent prices. We'd definitely go back.

We visited Ragtime this past Saturday evening. My wife raved about their food so we went there for dinner and my first visit. I ordered the Cajun Shrimp Pasta and my wife had the Grilled Chicken Alfredo. We sampled some of each other's and both dishes were absolutely amazing. Check out their menu and prices. Lots of appetizers and salads... More

We stopped on our way to the beach to spend the night and we're told at our hotel that this was a good place to try. It was very busy around 7 on a Friday night but our wait was short. Excellent choices of appetizers, maranated chicken and steak sandwiches.The shrimp alfredo was a hit as well.

I eat lunch at Ragtime almost every day of the week. Every item on the menu is fantastic. Most of the staff knows me by name and treat me more like a friend than a customer. I would recommend this spot to everyone.

My wife went there for a late lunch/early dinner. Not many people there, so seating was no problem. Our server greeted us and we asked for the draft list. After a few tastes, we arrived at what we wanted - our server was very nice. This spot has all it takes for a crowded after-work wind-down, but we're retired so... More

This bar is located almost within walking distance, from the Hotel. It is in a small plaza, just off the main road. If you are not looking for it, you could just drive right by it. It was Friday night, and in spite of the rather large interior, it was packed, as was the outdoor patio. There were no seats... More
