“Large portions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

The food was very good and had very large portions. The only complaint we had was it was very load. But very good and close to the La Quinta inn.

“Very good local cafe/restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

Recommended as a good lunchtime place, we visited and concur.

We tried appetisers of grilled prawns and a beef vegetable soup, both very god. We followed with grilled grouper with vegetables, mac and cheese and an oriental chicken salad. The fish was judged very good, succulent and tasty with good sides whereas the chicken came out somewhat bland.

Service was good except that rather than taking our order to the kitchen the server delayed until the order for a later table was taken too. This was unnecessary and could have been irritating.

Overall though the rating has to be very good and confirmation of the regard in which this place is held by local people

“Excellent Value!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

The Ragtime Cafe is one of those restaurants with a varied menu that does every dish well. I have had everything from pizza to crab cakes there and they are all excellent. With a table of four on my last visit, we had two who chose the crab stuffed grouper, one had the chicken wings and one the crab cakes. The portions on each dish were plentiful and the preparation and tastes were amazing. Menu prices are very reasonable given the portions and quality of the food. Add in friendly and attentive service and you have an unbeatable combination.

“Good food - great portions - great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

I ate here for lunch today, and the food was as good as I remembered. The portions are still great. I had the lunch special ($10.00), 2 (two) glasses of the house chardonnay, bread pudding; and the bill with (20% tip) was only $25.00. I made reservations for my monthly church group for next month.
