We ate twice while we were at the Ritz. Both lunches were excellent. You cannot beat the ocean front setting and the view it provides. Snapper sandwich, burgers (meat supposedly fresh ground at the resort), and the heirloom tomato salad were top notch. Crab nachos a great appetizer. Apparently also a great spot to enjoy the sunset.

We love coming here for lunch. Wonderful views of the beach and Gulf. Food and service are great. Pricy, even for Naples - but it's the Ritz!

On the beach, but nestled in some tropical foliage that gives it and "island feel." Ritz service in a beach setting. The crab nachos and lobster quesadilla are to die for!

You can't beat the view...nice panoramic front and center location right on the beach more or less. Its a bit hard to navigate this long narrow restaurant but it does give the space plenty of prime viewing spots for guests to see the sunset so it makes sense. The food was fantastic but (as you would expect) very pricey! Meal for two with drinks was about $80+ for dinner...ouch! It was nice to do once though

If you want to have an appetizer and a cocktail while watching the sunset or enjoy a little lunch and watch the blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico, this is your spot.
Located at the Ritz-Carlton on Vanderbilt Beach, this little outside venue is just charming. Built to look like it was built on a boardwalk, pick ANY table and settle back for the renowned Ritz service and enjoy the (limited) but ever-so tasty offerings.

After a leisurely lunch, take a walk on the beach, the entrance is right there next to the hostess station!!

We love this place so much we go there at LEAST once a week!
Fresh air, great food and service and views of the surf and sand, How can you go wrong?
