Disgusting service. We waited an hour for food. Lady serving us kept saying she couldn't control the kitchen and we could see people coming in way after us getting served food. People were leaving after long waits without food . Never coming back here again.

This is an original 1951 diner. It looks and feels the part. We had great food and service. Bring cash, no credit cards accepted. Server was quick and efficient. Order was accurate and served hot. Break the chain and give local people your business.

Just a short walk from West Penn Hospital, this was our first time dining here. The diner is so quaint and old school; worth a view. The Greek Hobo Omelette and the Corinthian Omelette was unique and delicious.

Ritter's is a Pittsburgh icon. It's been there since I can't remember. It's a classic diner with friendly, efficient servers, good diner food like bacon and eggs, hot pork or roast beef sandwiches, liver and onions and fried chicken. Ritter's serves many locals. They come...More

Having grown up in the area decades ago, visiting Ritter's Dinner recently was like seeing a good old friend. Classic decor & atmosphere, good food, friendly staff, quick service and reasonable prices (cash only, but there's an ATM inside). We were there around 9am on...More
