Fantastic dinner at the Ritz MV Soulfood & BBQ. Deviled eggs to die for, finger licking good ribs, and best collards ever (and I was raised in the South). Bravo to the whole team. Great food and great service. I predict standing room only.

They always seem to have live music there during the summer. Definitely a dive bar but good drinks and a fun atmosphere.

We were there on Karaoke night and the place was jumping. Quite the mix of tourists and the locals. Everyone having fun. They also have live music many nights. Decent prices on drinks.

Thank you for the review. Don't tell my musician buds, but Karaoke Monday' s is one of my favorite nights. The talent of the singers (most of the time) never ceases to amaze. Cheers Larkin

Went there on a Monday night with Karaoke. It was packed, hard to get a seat. A lot of fun, prices were ok. Great place to have a few drinks and a good time. Would go back there again.
