this is our family weekend breakfast spot. love the omelets and pancakes! kids love the skillets. burgers are good for lunch as are the salads. fast, friendly service. even if there is a line go ahead and add your name to the list. owners are usually on site and are very friendly.

Ridgeview Grill is a really good local place. It's a bit like a diner, a bit upscale, has a good party room, has friendly service (mostly). This is suburban comfort food. There is consistency but little fantasy, which actually is a plus here, because most of the patrons know that they will get a consistently good meal which holds no surprises, and is priced fairly (mostly). We have eaten here dozens of times and have little to complain about. Breakfast is great, lunch and dinner are very good. Lots of sensible choices on the menu. Specials are offered regularly. Standouts: omelets, stuffed avocado salad, salmon, meatloaf. Don't be fooled by the restaurant's name: the burgers are good but do not taste grilled. The lamb chops are tasty but can be a little tough. Then again they're not too expensive. Skip the bread (you often have to ask for it anyway.)

This is an establishment which deserves a lot kudos for its dedication to their patrons and service to the neighborhood. My wife and I had lunch there yesterday and are going back today in a few hours for brunch with the fam. It's that kind of a place. Go, enjoy.

Good food. Good prices. Usually no wait for a table. Nice place to stop for a meal whenever we are in the neighborhood.

Love the variety of food available from burgers to lamb chops to grilled cheese sandwiches. Comfortable atmosphere and the wait staff is very gracious. A few Greek dishes definitely worth trying and my family and I ate there three times in one week it was so good.
