Barely average food with below average service.

We've been going to The Ridge restaurant a couple of times a year for 5 years or more. The food's never been anything but average (at best) for an above average price. It does have a unique location and is probably the only 'decent' 'restaurant' on the southwest side of the lake. For that... read more

Our party of 10 went to The Ridge tonight to celebrate an anniversary. We had reservations at 7 pm, but didn't get our food until 9 pm. Our glasses went empty, our server never came back to check on us, until we finally went up to the bar and complained. I asked twice for a glass of water and had... More

We visited this restaurant on busy weekend a year ago and had a great meal so decided to try it again on a week night recently. We were very disappointed in our meals. My side of vegetables was definitely not fresh but frozen, our seafood mediocre and the service average. One persons steak was to their liking. We won't probably... More

From the in house made croissants to the luscious desserts, this place is the best in Cumming. The Ridge also offers an early bird special until six on weekdays. Wow that makes it a real bargin. Steaks, Fish, chicken, ribs, medallions. All superb.

The happy hour is good. The appetizers are crap, the crab dip is a soup of Alfredo sprinkled with crab and I would not recommend it. The happy hour oysters are good, peel and eat shrimp you can't mess up. The drinks are good. People come for the atmosphere.

i am sorry to report what a major disappointment The Ridge has become. Attended New Years event for the second year in a row last night. What a regret. After last year's delicious meal and high quality music, the wife and I thought we'd start a new tradition, but The Ridge killed that idea last night. Prices were up and... More

We went to the Ridge for a weekday dinner. The owner came by and after talking for a few minutes he asked the sever to bring us some of the dishes of which he was most proud (Comp) and then recommended some dishes for dinner. The food was delicious and the service was efficient and unobtrusive. Have been told that... More

We hadn't been to the Ridge in quite awhile and decided to go a few weeks back for my wife's birthday. Although a little pricey, the food and service were excellent. In addition we had live entertainment. We had fun and will definitely go back. Check their website, they have some specials through the week.

The Ridge has evolved into an excellent place for good food and great choices from steak, to chicken, to shrimp, crab and fish, to Baby back ribs. All are quite good and the sides, especially the Squash casserole are, very well done. Great Wedge salad. Not the fanciest and the lighting always a bit too low to see the menu... More
