Cheap & nostalgic! Not the best food, but it’s what you expect and it doesn’t disappoint! There is actually parking and it is open late. Perfect for after the bar! I think the last thing they put in was the “compact disc” players at the...More

As a non-American I’m fascinated by diners like this. They are just so American: just like in the movies. This one could easily be a film set with its retro booths and seating along the counter. The food is very good too. My wife had...More

Just a short walk from West Penn Hospital, this was our first time dining here. The diner is so quaint and old school; worth a view. The Greek Hobo Omelette and the Corinthian Omelette was unique and delicious.

You'll really enjoy Ritters! It's a through back to the age of diners, where the decor is not fancy, and the service is friendly and comfortable, and the food is, well, wholesome and tasty. To those who like such eating experiences, I'd recommend Ritters in...More

Ritter's is an icon in this area of Pittsburgh, don't go looking for new healthy trendy farm to table selections, but you will find lots of standard breakfast staples, various omelet choices, with all the standard side dishes. Service is good, coffee fair but lots...More
