We normally do not eat at the Ritz because we all actually want to eat at the Ritz. Rather, we eat at the Ritz because we cannot agree on some other place. Then, it usually turns out that someone in the family refuses to eat at the Ritz and that person has left overs while the rest of us eat... More

Once again my wife and I shared a fish dinner. Tonight we had Tilapia. Total cost for two persons $ 19.00 It is as good if not better than you will find in upscale restaurants charging $ 35.00 per person. The dinner includes a salad large enough to be shared, a vegetable and an excellent soup along with a basket... More

I have no idea why this place gets good reviews - it's completely overrated! The food is mediocre and definitely overpriced. The staff is snooty and, although the food is decent, it's definitely not worth a visit, especially since the Livingston Diner (a much better place) is 5 minutes away. Their bathrooms are dirty and the place itself is old.... More

We live about 10 miles from the Ritz Diner but are willing to drive there because we always have good food, plenty of selection and pleasant service. It is just a good plave to go to eat and relax.

I agree with a previous reviewer that the place is in awful condition! It has not be fixed up for many many years. It is definitely dirty (my silverware was filthy!) and many seats are torn. I will not even go into the ladies' room. Other problems are slow service and the noise level. But the one positive is that... More

This place is decent, but not great. They do breakfast better than lunch/dinner. I don't know what the fuss is over their apple pie - it's OK, but nothing to write home about. On top of that, for simple diner food, it seems overpriced to me. $10 for eggs, bacon, and toast...is a bit much. Decent in a pinch, but... More

I am torn on writing a review of the Ritz. I like the food and have been coming here for many years, but lately it just seems so dirty. I think this place needs a major overhaul - new tables, silverware . . . everything. I won't even discuss the ladies room, it has always been pretty gross. I will... More

Went for breakfast...omelette was delicious. Took out a sandwich to have at the hotel for lunch and it also was delicious. People were nice also. I can see why it was so crowded.

We love the Ritz and eat here often. Great for breakfast, lunch and dinner (but not open late night). The food is tasty and they give you huge portions (which is what a NJ diner's all about, right?). Can't walk by their terrific bakery without ordering something for dessert. The only problem is that when it's crowded (which is often... More
