This place was recommended by a fellow traveler. We tried it and were definitely pleased. The name may be upscale but the atmosphere is down to earth. The wait staff is very solicitous but overly so. I had fried shrimp and have not had as...More

My wife and myself had dinner at the Ritz and were very pleasantly surprised. The meal was excellent and the staff very friendly. The atmosphere in the restaurant was definitely small town America.

This is a cozy little diner downtown. Good food and friendly service. It's like a throwback to the 40s or 50s-great fun.

Service was terrible- we waited 15 min. for someone to even stop by to see if wanted anything to drink. The food was ok- nothing special. I would not rush back here. Cheap wine and only one brand.

The Ritz has been a Dyersville favorite starting back in 1948. Dan & Carol Sawyer are the owners. Dan worked in the automotive field for over 25 years. Dan's father, Orval Sawyer, owned and ran a popular little restaurant in a nearby town of Earlville named The Town Talk. Interest in his fathers business and a love of cooking lead Dan & Carl to purchase the Ritz in 2003. His wife Carol, a Dyersville native, works along side Dan as hostess and bartender. We offer that personal touch that can comes from a privately owned restaurant. The Ritz has a full menu including our popular Homemade Soups, Prime Rib, Steaks & Seafood, Pork, Chicken, and Sandwiches. We also have a full service bar. Have Carol make you one of her Southern Comfort Old Fashions or one of your own drink favorites. Please stop in, We look forward to serving you. Thank you, Dan & Carol Sawyer
