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

The Ritz cafe caught our eye as we wandered about Oak Bluffs (desperation for a beer was kicking in as we were staying in "dry" Vineyard Haven). We went for dinner & to the Ritz for afters - good call as the bar was busy & buzzy without being horribly over-crowded....a proper bar at last in Martha's Vineyard!

A former spot to find the local island wine-os and drunks has turned a corner with great live music and a outstanding craft beer selection. Paid a $5 cover on both Friday and Saturday night, but it was well worth it to see Mike Benjamin (of Entrain fame) followed by blues the following night. The dance floor was diverse, all... More

We went there both Sunday and Monday nights and had a blast. Drinks are cheap (considering your on the vineyard) they had a DJ Sunday and Karaoke Monday night, it is for sure a dive bar but was great for people watching and dancing, it's the kind of place where you can get up by yourself and dance and nobody...

Stopped for a drink before getting on the ferry. Check out tge1960 refrigerator behind the bar that is a highlight of the visit. Cold beer but not a pub feel. Granted it was in the afternoon could see the atmosphere would change later in the night.

This is the kind of place that you cant find anymore and then they make a movie about it. The music is a blast and great local color all around. Best hang on the island. Donn Scott Shetler

The Ritz is the place to stop and have a refreshing drink and wonderful conversation. Excellent service and server was delightful. An absolute grand experience -

A place to have a drink before noon, chat with the locals and pass the time. Beer and a shot of course, no need to complicate things. Good MV hangout.

I listened to the bands three nights in a row. Nice place and good music. Nothing fancy, for sure. I'd go back.
