Very expensive! No real early bird specials. You cannot go there to sit & relax. They serve & move you out ASAP to turnover the table. I think people go there to see and be seen. The food is very high priced. Not a place on my list for repeat dining. I saw a family across from me get huge... More

Whether you want breakfast, lunch, dinner or something in between- everything on the menu is great. I would personally recommend the chicken burger deluxe with avocado and honey mustard. Its addictive! The wait staff are always very nice. Don't feel shy and make sure to get both the health salad and yummy baked goods that come before your meal (no... More

Fabulous fish: The complete dinners which come with both soup and salad are large enough for many couples to share. Avoid the hamburgers: Usually unappetizing both in size and preparation. Management has been informed and perhaps there will be improvements in the future..

After early morning church service, the friendly greetings upon arrival; the children enjoying the dessert display while waiting to be seated; the patience and attentiveness of waiter in serving family of 7 (which included 4 children); the fresh, tasty and filling portions -- all added to the ingredients for joyful Easter Sunday festivities!!

Went with a group of 7 before a local show. Had a round table in back (lighting is bad back there) and it was a bit chilly on a cold day. Service was good, prices are reasonable, portions are large, but food was just ok - I was a little disappointed as it has been better in the past.

Average diner - good menu - good food. Can be loud when busy. Needs a good make over inside. Staff is friendly and the night manager Tony is awesome!

OK...The Ritz could use a little new paint and sprucing up and definitely some new Tableware-especially Knives Forks and Spoons (I bring my own spoon if I am hankering for their good soup! The service and servers are very good, very attentive, and courteous and most of all fun! Baked good, made on premise is probably the best around, considering... More

I had a nice lunch with friends here the other day. They have your typical good diner food with good service. Their homemade desserts are a delight. We shared Carrot Cake, Chocolate Babka, and Apple Pie. The plates had nothing left when we were done.

I have ben there three times, the food although not bad, not great either, I ask for French Onion soup, ...not worth it. iI´s a place to grab a quick meal if you are in a rush, but not to plan a gathering with friends for dinning. Staff is not friendly, they react annoyed when I requested a window seat,... More

We've have gone on multiple occasion for either breakfast, lunch, dinner or late evening dessert, tried different times of the day, different days of the week and it still the worst diner I've have ever been to - in and outside of New Jersey. The wait staff barely makes you feel welcome and they practically through the plates at you.... More
