    We recently were introduced to this charming restaurant and bar off Third Street in Naples. There is very nice outdoor dining on the patio/front porch that looks out onto the street, as well as a very nice garden setting off the patio. The service is very friendly and the staff are very accommodating to guests, including the four-footed variety. of course we were there for the food and drink and were not disappointed. The menu includes broad offerings- meat, seafood, pasta with some specialty/ comfort dishes such as meatloaf, chicken pot pie, etc. We were very pleased with our food and the overall dining experience.

    Very nice place for a quiet Sunday brunch after church. You have your choice of indoor or outdoor seating both of which are very nice. Lots of specialty drinks and some very different entrees. Excellent service and a nice relaxed pace make for an excellent Sunday brunch.

    Sat in the garden, just the two of us, and had a wonderful dinner. The menu has a wonderful selection of a various types of food. We both had a delicious cup of clam chowder and the blackened grouper which was very fresh and as they say "melts in your mouth". Ronda, our waitress was super and took good care us. Definitly one of our favorite restaurants.

    My wife and I went to Ridgway's for our 20th anniversary last weekend. We were pleased in every way. For starters, our knowledgeable waiter steered me toward the steak tartare, which was among the best I've ever eaten. A generous portion was accompanied by home-made potato chips - an excellent pairing. My wife enjoyed a spicy New England clam chowder. For entrees, I went for the chicken pot pie, which had a wonderful, flaky puff pastry top with a creamy, richly flavored stew. My wife had a "Chef's Creation": Florida pink shrimp, fried green tomato and a sweet corn grits cake with tasso gravy. All absolutely delicious. We highly recommend Ridgway's for any occasion, but especially for a truly special and memorable couple's night out.

    We sat at a table in the air conditioned, enclosed porch with a view of the garden. Since it was summer & still light out - that was delightful. We shared the Caesar then had the American burger & the seared tuna. All was great. Service from Joey was excellent. Didn't give the food 5 stars because they had three grouper offerings on the menu. All used red grouper. We love good grouper but red is the cheaper variety -not nearly as good as the black grouper.

    Terrific menu and it was nice that the table were not too close together. Food was very good. Disappointed with the quality of the flatware and glassware for the price point. The actual menus had stains on them which was tacky. Service was fine, but they could have used a runner for water, bread, cleanup. Overall was ok because the food was very good.

    We were seated outdoors & w/the fans running, it was pleasant, even tho the temp was in the low 90's. Food was good and service accommodating. The host was also accommodating in that there was a group indoors, and we needed a quieter area. Would recommend this restaurant.

    Whenever we are in Naples, we always make it a point to dine at Ridgeway. On our last visit, I had the chicken pot pie which was wonderful. My daughter had the tomato Parmesan pasta which was equally wonderful. The bread was warm and the salads cold. The desserts are fantastic. We split the turtle brownie sundae and the banana bread pudding. Yum! Always a great and special meal.

    Ridgeway bar and grill is seldom full in the very busy naples season. Now I know why.we were rushed through dinner in a very unprofessional way. Before we had finished our salad our dinner was plopped on the table beside us with one of those covers they put on food in the hospital! When we complained we were told the server was just doing what his manager told him to. As for the food,which of course was cold, it was simply not good. Their signature dish,the piccata fish dish was below average. The fish was mushy. The crisp potatoes as advertised were potato chips. A 35.00 waste of money.dont go there.

    We had great dinners. I started with a delicious cup of gazpacho. The blackened mahi with the remoulade sauce and breaded eggplant strips with a zesty side of tomato based sauce were absolutely mouth-watering. The salmon was cooked perfectly and the accompanying vegetables were perfectly prepared. Tony Ridgway cannot be outdone in Naples. We can't wait to get back and order the same.

    The only complaint I would have is that some of the servers are a little undertrained. Had lunch and it was fine, but we had to constantly look for our server for missing normal items: bread, butter, sweetener, menus, etc. Not a deal breaker, but off-putting a bit.

    Everything was wonderful until the gnats & mosquitos showed up. Our waiter brought us a citronella candle, which seemed to help. The patio is lovely with pretty flowers blooming, but at this time of year, probably better to sit up on the covered porch which has fans to keep the bugs away---or there's plenty of indoor dining.

    We've been to Ridgway's many times but on this occasion with a couple who hadn't been there. They really enjoyed it as I hoped they would. I order the chicken pot pie nearly 100% of the time. One of our guests had the meatloaf. The diverse menu is very appealing to us. We will come back for sure.
