My husband and I love the Ritz! The breakfast is the best in town. The food is quality and cooked to personal specifications. Prices are reasonable and your coffee cup is never empty. You can get anywhere from a healthy breakfast to a splurge of sweet filled carbs to the best greasy diner food, if you choose. The service is... More

There are two places in Oswego that I have breakfast in when on a visit. One is the Ritz diner/restaurant. I have never been here for lunch or dinner. Just breakfast as it usually keeps me full until the evening. The place is clean and the waitresses are always full of energy and talkative even at the early hours of... More

If you are in a hurry and want a quick meal this is a good place to go. They have all kinds of great breakfast items. I enjoy their frittatas. They have great pancakes too!

This used to be a great place to dine. Hours have been cut, they no longer serve dinner. After the original owner passed away, they tried adding too many fancy things to the menu, dropping some of the good, basic items, and jacking up the prices. Service has also declined. Your best bet is breakfast, which is served anytime. They... More

Stopped into "jockos" for breakfast over the weekend! I was greeted immediately and told I could choose a seat! I was quickly given a menu & coffee! I also liked my server, Sarah asked me if I would like anything to drink besides coffee, and I ordered a juice! Not many waitresses ever ask me that! I ordered an omelette... More

Stopped in here on Easter Sunday just before the crowds. Great vintage diner. We were seated quickly and the food frenzy started. We had with their tater tots and dipping sauce which were crisp, hot and delicious. We then had egg scrambles, omelets and burritos equally plentiful and delicious. All served with home fries or hash browns. The waitress was... More
