Pleasantly Surprised

We were invited to meet some friends at this restaurant which we have driven by numerous times. What pleasant meal. The fried shrimp was excellent and my wife had a chicken pasta dish which she enjoyed. The loaded baked potato was one of the best I've ever tasted. Overall we were quite pleased and... read more

We went with some friends from our church singles group and had a great time. We got there in time (although not planned) for the Early Bird Special which had 15 items to choose from....a very nice discount of about $4-$5 dollars off regular menu which meant we could splurge and order an appetizer or dessert. All of us thought... More

The food always comes out kind of like mush, the pasta anyway. I had scallops, pathetic, withered scallops in a broth or something. The service stinks, high school kids walking in circles. 15 minutes for a glass of wine, an hour for kids meals.

Seven of us dined here on a Wednesday evening. Great atmosphere, excellent menu and attentive wait staff. The problem was 3 starters did not arrive. After some Mains had been served, the missing starters turned up. The owner Steve appeared on request and said "In the restaurant business, you have 'off nights', sorry I'll give one of you a $15...

I am usually leery of any spot that lists chicken tenders (fingers) as an appetizer. The Ridge is an exception to the rule. The our Shrimp Lanier over angel hair pasta was outstanding. A disappointment was the crab cake. Far too much filler. Fried shrimp was light on the batter and long on flavor. The quality of the food deserves... More

This is a nice restaurant and the food can be good at times. I think they changed ownership in the last year or so and they have now discontinued the specials for Thursday nights. They used to offer prime rib for $12.99 that night but it has been discontinued. The waitress was very nice but we had to ask for... More

This place has the worst food in Cumming! We've been here 5 times and each time the food was way overcooked, undercooked, or so bland you may as well be eating cardboard. And for the price they charge, that is totally unacceptable. Wine selection is pretty terrible too. At least the bar service is decent, but that cannot save this... More

This was my birthday and our first visit to the Ridge. We found the location very appealing - the view out into the forest combined with the interior decor gives quite a rustic, lodge type atmosphere. We were seated quickly, however the service was spotty, with our waitress failing to top our water glasses or replenish our wine. The food... More

Went with a party of 12. The salads were fine, the waitress was awesome. Those who ordered chicken and beef - it was way overcooked. Being a large party we didn't get our food at the same time from first to last service was about 15-20 mins, which was crazy.

Made reservations and we were seated promptly. Service was excellent, food and entertainment were amazing. Noise level was low and this destination definitely requires a return visit.
