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.

So happy to find a pub with live music for those over 40 :) Cool crowd there. Band set up was so that you were either standing right in front of them or only listening from the bar without being able to see the band much.

During our recent MV pub crawl, we decided to stop for our first cocktail at the Ritz. If you like a dark, little, dive bar where the locals hang out, the Ritz is your place! Cold drinks, friendly service, with local charm.....I'm pretty sure the Name of this spot, "The Ritz" is a play on words....definitely worth the stop.

Check out the Ritz Cafe for a cold cheap beer and some great local music on Martha's Vineyard. No suit or tie required! The Ritz is the locals bar, very down home watering hole. Check their web site for entertainment schedule http://theritzcafe.com/
