I really want to like this place. They have an excellent cream of crab soup and their desserts are delicious. The atmosphere is bad. The greeting from the hostess/server is uninviting. As if they're bothered by you. The service, let's put it this way I waited for an hour and 20 minute for half of a tuna salad sandwich and... More

Don't miss this charming little restaurant. On this visit I decided to splurge and order the shrimp salad sandwich. Hands down, the best shrimp salad I have ever had. First of all, the shrimp were enormous. The salad was served on a very fresh croissant and there was so much shrimp in the salad I had to eat some with... More

For the life of me every time my wife and I go here we feel the food is outstanding and the service and the time it takes to get your food is excruciatingly slow. This place could be one of the best if they had a sense of urgency. Like I said the food is excellent albeit a little on... More

My wife and I spent the day walking around historic Havre de Grace and decided to eat in a local cafe. We saw the Ritz Cafe and decided to try it. They listed a number of specials on their chalkboard and the waitress reiterated them when she came to our table. Since this is Maryland, at first I was going... More

Small, intimate yet warm and welcoming. Everything we tried looked to be made with extraordinary care. The plating was beautiful with tasty food to match. The crab summer salad simply worked..with ripe mango, strawberries, avocado, No dressing necessary, hit the spot. The crab cake served with roll and slaw was simple, clean tasting and elegantly presented. Pair this with kind... More

A quaint classy restaurant that isnt stuffy. The Ritz first caught our attention with 2 signs in their window, "Best cream of crab soup" and "Homemade Peach Milkshake". We weren't hungry so we did some window shopping and browsing. Once inside Pizazz we were talking to the sales lady who recommended The Ritz for its originality, freshness and healthy choices....
