We arrived at Ria's at 8:25 on a Saturday morning and all the tables inside were taken. I added our name to the list and we waited for 5 minutes before we were seated in the enclosed, heated, covered porch out back. The music was pretty loud, but we could have a conversation. I had banana and pecan pancakes with... More

We had to wait a pretty long time. But the wait was well worth it! The pancakes with the bananas was SO good!! The food was fresh and so well made. I actually had a chance to speak with the chef/cook. The staff and workers were very gracious and I loved the atmosphere.

Well, how could you resist having pancakes which The NY Times declared as the best? Somehow we timed our visit perfectly and didn't have to suffer waiting outside. The bacon and sausage are divine.

I had the shrimp and grits, which were too soupy for my taste and a bit bland. I had high hopes for this dish when I read the menu, but the delivery was subpar. The poblano peppers were nice, but they seemed to add too little to the overall "blah" dish. The other entrees at my table seemed OK, but... More

I'd give this a 5 if not for the rude hostess at the front door. I enjoyed my vegetarian dish the Huevos, Grilled blue corn tortillas with black or pinto beans, topped with white cheddar, 2 eggs fried, salsa verde & sour cream. Was excellent and huge I took some home and had for supper. We enjoyed a cup of... More

Just ate brunch here with a friend of mine. I had shrimp & grits which was absolutely delicious. My friend had a fried tempeh dish. She said it was good as well. We shared pancakes because we'd heard so many great things about them. They were delicious as well. The wait was about 20-30 mins and well worth it. I... More

Lots of people rave about this place. Not sure I understand why, but the food and service were fine though unremarkable.

We stopped by here Christmas Eve right at their time of opening... 8 am sharp...Within 10 minutes the restaurant was almost at max capacity. I had the pancakes and yes the reviews are true....They are very delicious! I also had a side of SOY sausage. It was great! My friend had the Frittata which was fresh and delicious. Our food...

It was so crowded when we arrived that we didn't see the small sign on the hours of operation on the window. We didn't notice other customers had left and were lost in our conversation. The light skinned waitress with red boots yells from the register at me asking if I wanted a to go cup. I was confused and... More

Was visiting for thanksgiving holiday and figured we would try something different. The pancakes were the best I've ever had! Triple stack of chocolate chip will have you in a coma! Do yourself a favor and try them!
