We always love trying new places and this one came with some good recommendations. I ordered an appetizer size fried shrimp and sweet onion rings. My friend ordered shrimp Alfredo. He said it was the best he had had anywhere and we go to a lot of places for seafood. My shrimp were very large. They were good but too... More

Some of the best burgers around, but arrive early for lunch since it fills up very fast due to the number of office parks in the area.

On my next visit I had the same waitress. She recognized me and hugged me while thanking me for coming back. (Don't you... More

Loved the food, great selection of liquors and beer as well. Glad we stopped in! Great place to grab a bite and brew. Husband had the chicken wings and they were awesome! Turkey burger with pimento cheese, bacon, and avacado was awesome too!!

My husband and I had the crab stuffed tilapia, double stuffed potato and house salad! The Monday Margaritas were so good! It was the best meal we have had on our travels, we highly recommend Ragtime Cafe and if you are lucky you will have Cramer as your server!

We go to ragtime about once a week. The menu has a wide variety however my favorite is the fish tacos. The sauces with the tacos make the dish for me. The service is always great! We usually go on the weekend when it is busy but don't mind the wait which is usually 30 minutes for 4.

For lunch the Pimento Cheese Burger is one of the best choices in Birmingham. For supper, the Chicken & Artichoke Pizza is culinary artistry. This restaurant has a great bar if or a more intimate setting at the tables. It is noisy during peak hours but worth it. The wait staff is professional and knows service. The only thing that...
