Service is generally terrible here. Come for the great lake view, fun atmosphere, and strong fishbowls!

They advertise their burgers...forget the burgers. Their pizza is to die for! Other talk about the fact that it is dingy and has bad service. It is dingy...but it is an old biker bar. The service isn't very fast but they are very nice. Go for the pizza!

We came here for dinner and first had to wait for about 20 before we got our menus - not that big of a deal but kind of irksome. We ordered 3 pizzas for 8 people and had plenty if food. My mom was eating her last piece of pizza that she said "Ew!" and pulled out a long hair... More

The food was good. However the service is very slow and the venue is crowded and not particularly clean. Do not go here with children or if you are in a hurry.

The best thing about the Ritz is the outdoor seating on a beautiful day....you can't beat it. I had the turkey wrap which was good....with an ice cold beer. Visiting with family....It doesn't get much better than that.

The wraps are delicious. The entertainment when Tripwire Live is in town is spectacular, especially on Sunday Funday on the Patio. Highly recommend going here, especially if Tripwire is in town!
