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... read 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.

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'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 reason, it's always packed. I'm sure... 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.
