    Great venue for a fine dining experience. Be it a special person, friends, family - all would know they were in a "right " place. Each dish was impeccably presented. Portions were appropriate. Although not inexpensive it was worth it. As good as any fine dining in the Naples area. I hope it is not too hard to get to in season. Any hints?

    We can always count on Ridgway's for an excellent experience, and our recent evening was no exception. The menu is extensive, with good variety -- you can always find something that appeals. Moreover, because the owner is regularly on site, you can count on the food always being well prepared, and the wait staff being well trained. We recommend it very highly.

    This restaurant has consistently poor food and their prices are very inflated. I had a chicken pt pie that cost $26 and it was cool when served. The table next to me complained to the manager because a ste.ak was undercooked and the waitress never came back to check on them. When they finally got hold of her she said that she had to work out back in addition to waitressing. There were very few diners here. Every night I walk by and you can always get a table as compared to the other crowded 3rd st. restaurants.

    My wife and I met friends here for brunch on a Sunday. Very very nice. The atmosphere is relaxed and there are several different areas of the restaurant, both inside and out, that are pleasant. The food was very very good. I had the Croque Madam which was excellent. My wife and one of our party had the Salmon on home made potato chips. They felt that the chips were too bland and the amount of salmon was too little but otherwise liked the serving. The fourth in our party had a burger and fries which he thought was very good. Overall, I thought Ridgway Bar and Grill was a pleasant restaurant with a nice environment, good food and good value.

    treasure. It's been around, in one form or another, for 38 years, and one visit will reveal the key to its longevity: it delivers quality on all levels -- service, ambience and food. And let's not forget the great wine list. There may be a lot of newer restaurants but this one stands the test of time and is well worth revisiting. Some great dishes include the goat tart ratatouille, roasts mussels, Scottish salmon with lentils and braised leeks and shrimp with tasso gravy.

    The ambience and outdoor seating is great- very southern. Our first visit was spur of the moment and pleasant, hence we returned with friends for a fun Friday evening of dining pleasure. The appetizers were delightful, a crab and avocado combo, very tasty and good gazpacho. We were disappointed a salad we really liked had disappeared from the menu. The meatloaf entre was outstanding as before, however, the yellowtail snapper was a huge disappointment to two who ordered that entre - somewhat tasteless and mostly dry. While the restaurant offered a complimentary dessert to make amends, we weren't looking for adjustments, we were looking for good food. I think we will try again another time, mainly because it is such a great dining spot.

    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.

    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.

    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.
