Great Diner

Great food and service. Did not have room for desert so we got them to go for the next morning. Would highly recommend this diner.

Good restaurant but a little dirty, make sure you don't sit in the back booths near the kitchen, for 17 years now they haven't been able to get rid of the family of flies that live back there and that's where they put the screaming kids too. BEWARE

I have been here many times, as my wife likes to go but I do not understand why people go here. The service is horrible, the carpets are ripped the food is mediocre at best. I can't even believe diners drive ins and dives came here, for desserts only I can see. The caramel apple pie is good but other... More

But don't expect any atmosphere. The best thing that can be said about the decor is that the carpeting is always replaced before it becomes a negative. If you are looking for a modern, clean quiet diner this ain't it. I eat dinner here quite often and if you love fish at a reasonable price this is the place to... More

We eat here probably on average once a month. It is a real local establishment and we always run into everyone we know. The ritz staff are always very accommodating of families and the staff are always helpful, despite looking exhausted from the sheer volume of people coming on a daily basis (they must print money). Highly recommend getting the... More

I had a chicken cheesesteak about 10 with fries, it was grilled chicken cut into thin strips with some cheese peppers and onions. It was good but not the traditional philly style. It was a grilled chicken sandwich. Good value overall.

I was not prepared for the size of the French toast. 4 huge slices. Went with a friend. She had the good sense to say, "Well done." The bread is so thick, it might have been too soggy otherwise. Awesome!!! Would go back for that alone.

Consistently good for every meal. The crab cakes are exceptional. Service is fast and courteous. The bakery is obscene. They are known for their apple pies, but the chocolate bobka is to die for,

I've been to this diner a few times and have had a similar experience to several other reviewers in finding that the staff seems to cater to the "regulars". The food is okay but a bit pricey. The atmosphere is not great either: always crowded, somewhat dingy and not a lot of room between tables. It's not a place I... More

Friends in the area recommended this diner and it is was on the DDD show. The menu is overwhelming and the place was packed for our lunch time experience. Our entrees were very good and the service was good but not great. Agree with a previous post that they do cater to the 'locals'.
