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.

Sandwiches, breakfast and soups are very good. The owner used to own a Chinese restaurant, so try the Chinese dishes. I always get the vegetable stir fry. My friend loved the french toast, and my mother is a huge fan of the corned beef hash....More

When most places where closed on Christmas day, you can depend on the Ritz for being opened. The food is standard dependable and reliable as well. Its a pretty good dinner with a nice ambience.

The Ritz is a Livingston landmark and serves up some very good food at affordable prices. My favorite is their Taylor ham egg and cheese sandwich and don't forget the French fries with gravy. Mmmm.

This has been a stable in the area for years. It's a decent diner--not the best of NJ--but it's good. Service is inconsistent; sometimes bad, and some of the pricing seems a bit much, but it serves it's purpose. It's also a local scene which...More
