The service you get as you walk in is the service you will get during your meal. This place went from on the bone to Ridgeway bar & grille, it went from it's sweeter to horrible service. When we walked in, the ladies at the hostess stand were so busy talking and laughing that they didn't notice us standing there.... More

I should 1st mention that On The Bone will be changing names in the near future, do not know what the name will be but everything is staying the same except the name so I feel I can tell of my experience accurately & it will still be true! The holding company who owned the hotel that the resturant is... More

The food was decent, no surprises. The service seemed bored and poorly trained, but friendly enough. Place could have been cleaner and more nicely decorated (the latter is of course personal taste). Price level average, as the food.

Is this place good enough to be asking $40 for a steak? No. It does the a decent job and has good basics for more reasonable prices, but it's a hotel attached dining room and isn't anywhere near the fancy dining experience it wants you to believe it is - For example, it needs to close up its main space...

Went with a couple for a dinner. The ambiance is more like a bar and a very typical restaurant located within a hotel (somewhere). The service was exceptional but the food wasnt good at all. We ordered ribs (okay), italian sausage with pasta and broccoli rabe (tasteless) and two other dishes both of them were ok. Its an average restaurant... More

I had not dined here for a few years, but after reading some reviews on Trip Advisor, I thought I would give it a try. So sorry I did. There is no ambiance whatsoever; very bright lighting in the bar area. I ordered the 8 oz. filet mignon...it had no taste at all..it was not juicy. I had to use... More

A very good restaurant with a good selection of appetizers, main courses and a nice wine list. The deserts are awesome! Our party of four each had a different main course and everybody liked theirs. We shared three deserts and came back the next day for more.-:)
