We had the best seafood I have ever had. We are so sad to hear that this place is going out of business. We only wish that we could have eaten there again.

I dined as part of a business group last weekend. The waitstaff served wonderful appetizers including fruit and cheese Kabob and bacon wrapped jumbo shrimp. They were lovely and I may have overindulged because I was too full for the entree'. The chicken was very...More

Great location. High prices and decent quality. Crab cocktail small and not that fresh. Charcuterie board excellent. Lobster tail well prepared. Salmon tail excellent. Desserts also good. Close to theaters. Too bad this restaurant is closing soon.

We dropped by after a movie at the Fox Theatre, almost adjacent. Not up to a major $$$$ meal, we had appetizers - I had the marlin tataki. Very, very good, with excellent wine. Very snazzy, upscale space, great server.

The food at the Ringside Fish House was great, as was the service. This is a real high end restaurant, so be prepared to spend. The wait staff was courteous and professional, though not warm and fuzzy.

While it does serve steaks, it is primarily a seafood restaurant. Nice decor and very good service. Restaurant was famous for their onion rings, and it lived up to that. Seafood was very fresh. Crab cakes had little or no bread filler, just pure crab....More
