Rotten Ralphs has recently moved and has a limited menu but the fish and chips and coconut shrimp were both excellent. Our service was outstanding considering there was only one server who was most attentive. We will definitely return.

I previously wrote a review about this restaurant not being senior friendly because they wouldn't give us the discount after we paid the bill. Their manager wrote me and said that their policy is to give the discount to seniors even after the bill is paid. So.............Kudos to Rotten Ralph for doing the right thing. She offered a 20% dicsount... More

Dined (and I use that phrase haltingly) for lunch today. Very limited lunch menu and hubby and I both ordered Fish and Chips which seemd to be a house specialty. Yes, there was a large party of 12 as well as others in the restaurant and, yes, there was only one server. Our fish came out literally dripping in grease!... More

It was a bit of journey even with GPS to find the new location. The menu remains the same, and the food was great. Our server was friendly, and the food was prepared quickly. Our group had the fish sandwich, shrimp salad, and cheeseburger for an early dinner. There seemed to be a steady crowd even early in the evening.... More

Not a fancy place but good fried haddock and homemade potato chips or fries...all you can eat for $12. No longer in Anna Maria Island. The only location open is on 34th St in Bradenton. Service was good but very few people were there at the time. A sign out front says 10% off for seniors or if you pay... More

After looking all over Ana Marie Island we finallly found this place in Bradenton. We bought the all you can eat fish and it was pretty good. The service was good and the waitress was very friendly. The only thing that spoiled our dinner is on the way out after we paid the bill and left a nice tip, we... More

I worked in a Library for 10 years and there was a series of books called Rotten Ralphs, so I had to go here...This is a hole in the wall, or should I say a dive by the fishing boats...Anyway you look at it is a great place to eat...Once again, eating alfresco is my favorite way in warm climates...The...

ROTTEN doesn’t quite cover it… it was FILTHY (the 2 previous proprieters NEVER kept the place clean... and each time we figured the new leasee... More

After 35 years in the restaurant industry I have come to realize that you can't please everyone.. You hate to ever here of someone leaving your place disappointed....
