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!!

My husband and I had the crab stuffed tilapia, double stuffed potato and house salad! The Monday Margaritas were so good! It was the best meal we have had on our travels, we highly recommend Ragtime Cafe and if you are lucky you will have Cramer as your server!

We go to ragtime about once a week. The menu has a wide variety however my favorite is the fish tacos. The sauces with the tacos make the dish for me. The service is always great! We usually go on the weekend when it is busy but don't mind the wait which is usually 30 minutes for 4.

The host was very friendly and new we were travelers from the north based on how we talked:) Our server was friendly and helpful with our choices. I had the grilled fish tacos and my husband had the Chicken Alfredo. Both were very good!

For lunch the Pimento Cheese Burger is one of the best choices in Birmingham. For supper, the Chicken & Artichoke Pizza is culinary artistry. This restaurant has a great bar if or a more intimate setting at the tables. It is noisy during peak hours but worth it. The wait staff is professional and knows service. The only thing that...

The food here is awesome. I stayed close to this place for four nights and ate there 5 times. Friendly staff and fast service, but definitely not fast food! All of my customers that I entertained there could get over how good it was. The grilled chicken Alfredo is the best. It is like none other!!

We went to this as it was local to La Quinta Hotel. The service was super fast and the girls really friendly and helpful. I had the Chicken Alfredo and it was really nice. My sister had the sirloin steak and she said it was the best steak she's had in a long time. We would definitely go back if... More
