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

I love NJ diners and visited with family there for lunch. I ordered a lox and bagel platter and it was delicious! I asked for extra tomatoes and pickles, since I saw pickles on my husband's plate, they looked good and he wouldn't share....there was cole slaw in a bucket-type dish on the table, but lacked a spoon in it....

It had been at least 30 years since I'd dined in this place. (Actually, it was called the Heritage Diner back then.) Anyway, this was kind of a neat return for me, as this restaurant is in my home town. The set-up of the inside is different today, but the feel of the place is about the same. The Ritz... More

I have been here many times, but didn't think about a review because it's local. I usually review places I go to on vacation. I must apologize, because it's really a great place to eat. The salads and burgers are the best I've ever had. There is a huge menu, so there's something for everyone. You won't be disappointed. They... More

large selection of breakfast, lunch and dinner items. food is consistent and the bakery is a plus. Great for late night snacks. Don't miss the Danish, apple pie and thick milkshakes.

I had the Cobb Salad and I think it's the best I've ever had! Everything was so fresh. Fantastic! The atmosphere was typical for a diner, but it was quite loud inside. The service was slow, but it was lunchtime and so it was busy, and the food made up for it!

You will not regret coming into the Ritz Diner for any food offered in their menu! You must try their steak sandwich cooked to juicy perfection with the right blend of sweet onions served with the best fries. Finish your meal with their famous Apple Pie with a hot cup of coffee and you will plan your next visit. If... More
