We visited Ragtime this past Saturday evening. My wife raved about their food so we went there for dinner and my first visit. I ordered the Cajun Shrimp Pasta and my wife had the Grilled Chicken Alfredo. We sampled some of each other's and both dishes were absolutely amazing. Check out their menu and prices. Lots of appetizers and salads... More

We stopped on our way to the beach to spend the night and we're told at our hotel that this was a good place to try. It was very busy around 7 on a Friday night but our wait was short. Excellent choices of appetizers, maranated chicken and steak sandwiches.The shrimp alfredo was a hit as well.

I eat lunch at Ragtime almost every day of the week. Every item on the menu is fantastic. Most of the staff knows me by name and treat me more like a friend than a customer. I would recommend this spot to everyone.

My wife went there for a late lunch/early dinner. Not many people there, so seating was no problem. Our server greeted us and we asked for the draft list. After a few tastes, we arrived at what we wanted - our server was very nice. This spot has all it takes for a crowded after-work wind-down, but we're retired so... More

This bar is located almost within walking distance, from the Hotel. It is in a small plaza, just off the main road. If you are not looking for it, you could just drive right by it. It was Friday night, and in spite of the rather large interior, it was packed, as was the outdoor patio. There were no seats... More

We always love trying new places and this one came with some good recommendations. I ordered an appetizer size fried shrimp and sweet onion rings. My friend ordered shrimp Alfredo. He said it was the best he had had anywhere and we go to a lot of places for seafood. My shrimp were very large. They were good but too... More

Some of the best burgers around, but arrive early for lunch since it fills up very fast due to the number of office parks in the area.

Went here for the first time about 2-3 years ago and still visit almost weekly. The menu has many things to offer, each and everyone delicious! Not a better staff around. You can get everything here from cheese fries to an awesome steak! Bar staff and wait staff professional and always greet you with a smile. I am one of... More

I discovered this out of the way place a couple of years ago. Being a pleasant day, I opted to dine outdoors. Service was excellent and the food was very good. The patio is very pet friendly. On my next visit I had the same waitress. She recognized me and hugged me while thanking me for coming back. (Don't you... More

Loved the food, great selection of liquors and beer as well. Glad we stopped in! Great place to grab a bite and brew. Husband had the chicken wings and they were awesome! Turkey burger with pimento cheese, bacon, and avacado was awesome too!!
