8 of us went on a Sunday 7/20/14 it was not busy. 6 of us live here and 2 were visiting from Il. 6 of us ordered the swordfish with mango salsa topping. The portion was small and tough and for the money it was not a good value. The drinks were weak. The baked potato was good as was... More

I am sorry that it wasn't what you expected. I will address the drinks with the new bartender and make sure that they are done properly. As far as your dinners are concerned, we try to offer the freshest fish in a restaurant with a beautiful water view. Swordfish is a "steakier" fish, but if it was overdone I apologize.... More

We met friends here for a few cocktails/beers and some appetizers this past Sunday afternoon. The atmosphere was what I would call whimsical Florida theme with lots to look at, but still looked clean, not dusty as you might expect with so much going on. We asked for menus which were also done in a whimsical style and lots of... More

Moved to area less than a year ago, and checking out all the new restaurant selections. Sandy Hook has a great waterfront view, but it really ends there. Food was average,not a lot of flavor. Service was not great, and it was a bit pricy for what you got. With all the selection and choices for dinner in the area,... More

Great Sea Food Restaurant in Matlacha, Fl. Putting on the Ritz is a fish dish which uses ritz crackers in the cooking process. One of the best fish dishes I have even eaten. Mr. Steward was an excellent server for our party of six June 27, 2014. Wife and I have eaten there several times and have always enjoyed our... More

The ritz has always been one of our top sellers. Don't think I could take it off the menu if I wanted. Might get in trouble with lots of my regulars!! Why would I want to anyway. Make sure you say hi next time you are in. I will also make sure to tell Mr Stewart about this review. It... More

We had a wonderful meal and were entertained by dolphins and birds just outside the huge glass windows facing the bay. Great to be inside the AC and still get that island feel.

It's great to live in the area year round because this place can get very crowded in "season", and it's a treat to go there between May & December.. Since there is a great view of the wide waterway, good service, and excellent food we go there often. Prices are reasonable (most popular dished are under $20) and I encourage... More

Adequate service for our party of 25 older adults. The food was just okay but fresh. Butter was served in those frustrating individual packets. The overall appearance of the restaurant was so-so!! The ceiling fans had not been cleaned in months. Nothing special to mention. It has a great view and is a landmark for many. They could improve the... More
