Three of us went for a late lunch on a weekday. Although we are all in our 50's I think we were at the younger edge of the crowd. We has soups burgers and lunch specials. All was good. Service was good and attentive up until the end when we were ready to leave we needed to flag down our... More

The ridge is CLASSIC nj diner dining. I grew up going here. It is and has always been family owned. The food and service is awesome. It is a bergen county institution.

You can always count on a good meal. Food is fresh and service for the most part is good. The new gluten free options are great and I've found they are always willing to work around dietary restrictions.

Stopped in for a quick breakfast on my way up north. Having moved out west I really miss Jersey diners. I needed a fix fast and chose one of my favorite places for any meal, especially breakfast. The place was as I remembered- fast service, clean dining area and restrooms and friendly staff. I ordered the Taylor ham and egg... More

Went there today for breakfast. I had the Gluten Free Pancakes and my mom had the French Toast. The food was good. They actually had several other Gluten Free options which is so hard to find-especially in a diner. Our waitress never came over after she brought out our food to ask if we needed anything else. We had to... More

We stopped here on our drive back to Virginia from CT after Labor Day weekend. I was pretty sick, so I really wanted to get some chicken soup and a bloody mary (for the vitamin C, of course.) We pulled over here, hoping it would just be a fast pit stop. Our waitress, who was a bit prickly, informed me... More

For years the Ridge Diner has been your average Jersey diner. Maybe not the best but a 3 to 4 star rating. This is our third try eating there and it will be our last. We had breakfast there today and had the worst coffee, the worst homefries, and the worst omelet you could ever imagine. Our waiter could care... More

The Ridge has been around forever and if you ask the locals they will send you there. If you are up for some good diner food, the Ridge is the place. This is not fine dining or a place you're going for something you will rave about, but it is good eats and consistent. The host, not sure if he's... More
