I feel the owner, server, cashier, busboy in this diner all should know they are in the hospitality business! I feel they just had a fight, all mad. Eight oz of water, no refill, pond the check in front of me, clean the table while I was still sitting there. Just not acceptable. Food was ok, not enough to compensate... More

I can’t remember when I have been to a diner this good and so unique. The atmosphere was very comfortable and the wait service was above expectations. Despite being very crowded the wait was short and service was good. Six of us of all ages met for brunch. Children and adults all loved there food. We each had a different... More

Breakfast meeting. First time visit. Friendly and delicious. More food than I could eat. Never eaten at a diner that gives you 5 strips of bacon with your eggs and bacon.

I was out in a wild place called New Jersey, and my friends wanted to just have a fairly simple lunch and suggested the RITZ DINER. Sounded OK to me so I drove to Livingston to meet them. Turns out they have many lunch specials, and as diner menus usually go pages and pages of stuff to choose from. I... More

My wife and I decided to stop in for a little bite on a Sunday night around 7PM. The restaurant was about half full. We both ordered a fresh roasted turkey sandwich with Swiss cheese. It was huge & very enjoyable. The service was good and best of all, we bought some of their homemade cookies from there bakery display.... More

I've frequented this dinner/restaurant many times and I've never been disappointed. Always busy and sometimes a bit noisy but worth a visit.
