Second time no better than the first...this place was horrible as Pare, and this incarnation is not much better. Even being almost empty, the service was awful, having to eventually ask the other server for drinks, to go box, and the bill. The food is adequate, but the homefries are disgusting! Adding some horrible red seasoning just absolutely ruins any chance of flavor these poor potatoes had. I can't believe they are still served this way! I guess the staff just ignores all the plates full of uneaten potatoes going into garbage. A last resort for those who really enjoy breakfast, I should have known better after seeing their cheap advertising signs near Cobbs HIll over the summer.
Over the past few years I have always found this establishment a pleasant experience. The food is always good with nice servers. Of course this is more than a diner, and could use some updates, but that is what we love about it! The menu is extensive, and offers something for all. The sautee dishes, like chicken french are excellent, but just as good are the burgers, pot roast, breakfasts, any sandwich, or just a cup of homemade soup. Ridge does not offer many non-chain places that are so tasty, so treat yourself to good meal here!
