It definitely has the diner feel to it. Staff is friendly and inside is a good size. I always hear good things about this place and how it's one of the best diners around. I work right around here so I've come a few times...More

Ritz Diner has the best apple pie I have ever had. I always order in advance for puck up on Thanksgiving. Everyone always raves about their pie! Employees are rude so I only go to pick up pies, never stay to eat off the menu.

The Ritz is an institution in Livingston. It is the quintessential diner. Huge menu. Everything you could ever want. Service is normally fast and you may feel rushed but just tell the waiter you want to take your time. No problem. They have a counter...More

Many visits have confirmed that this somewhat rundown diner serves "excellent" food. The fish had been especially good. On this visit the fish was poorly prepared. One poor experience does not mean that we or you should not return. Hope this poor meal is not...More
