Fabulous food and drinks - great service. Live music would be nice.
The Ritz is only a disappointing shadow of its former self. It's just sad to be there now. The food has gone downhill, as has the service. Not even a decent bloody mary. Time to go elsewhere.
Nice setting but really quiet, almost snoozing....and the food was mediocre at best. The wine list is good.
Excellent food, wine and service.
It smelled weird and the live music was very late getting started.
Great fun and really helpful staff.
I guess it would be somewhat insensitive to say that 15C is really smoky, but it is, even when it's not on fire and just open for business. But it's still really cool - great atmosphere.

Jack Quinn's is great Most of the time. The food is pretty consistently good. The Sunday brunch there is the best! I used to go every week for the Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz, but got frustrated with the sound quality of the speakers (only hearing every 3rd word during a quiz is annoying) and stopped going. I like their live music, but its always too loud for the space they are in. If they get the speaker system fixed they would definitely be a 5 star place.
The first time I went there the food, drinks and service were amazing. That was over a year ago and since then it has gone progressively downhill. The waitresses get orders wrong and bring cold food. You are lucky if you see one of the waitresses every hour or so. I am not going back again.
The girls who work there do not practice identity theft. The employees are just practicing the rules that the owners put in effect. They take your license when you open a tab 1. as more of a safeguard that you will not walk out on your tab. And 2. so they know its you using your card! They write down your ID number and state of issue when you close out to prove that they were diligent and assured that it was the owner of the card making purchases, and to cover their backs so, if a customer has a few too many drinks and disputes the bill the next day/days later, they have proof that they did indeed make the purchase. You should be happy that they go to such lengths to PROTECT you from identity theft.
Aside from that, its a great and entertaining place! Always a good time!
Loved this place. The drinks were great and the music was fantastic. I can't wait to go back!

WARNING!!!! Gasoline Ally practices identity theft!!!!!!
I went here and spent about $40 on drinks. When I payed with a credit card they asked to see my driver's licence and wrote down all my personal information on the credit card receipt along with my credit card number. The next day my crdit card company was calling me with a questionable charge on my card for $1000 dollars!!! Do not go to this place unless you want to be robed
Great venue packed house best stage/sound/lighting in the springs. Loved playing there.. Great place to see live bands not a bar setting a real venue!!
Ya right this is a place to meet women! Women BEWARE!!! I know of at least 3 women who have been roofied at the Ritz. Luckily they were with friends and nothing horrible happened to them. Please make sure you go there in a big group especially on a friday or Saturday night.
Ritz Downtown - Blah. My chicken sandwich was significantly overcooked. My wife ordered the chicken and shrimp pasta. They forget to put in the shrimp! The waitress offered to give us a to go box with shrimp in it to make up for it. WTF!. No offer to reduce the bill for skipping the shrimp. Move on to a better restaurant folks!
The last time some friends and I went here the serves was the worst! We sat down and waited for a wait person. The place wasn’t very crowded. We sat and waited and waited. Finally I got up and ordered drinks at the bar. Two of the people I was with got up and went across the street and ate at Jimmy John’s. I asked a waiter walking by for help and he said it wasn’t his area. Finally a women came by to wait on us, my friend said that would be nice because we had been waiting for some time. She said that wasn’t possible! ? Our other friends returned from Jimmy John’s just as we were given menus. We ordered and wait a while for our food. We were not offered another drink. I asked to talk to the manager and was told by the first waiter he was busy. We paid and walked out the front door. We were than told by someone else that the manager was standing out front. I told him of our experience, to which he said that we should of talked to him. He then told me that someone had said that I had yield at one of the waitress, which is pure fiction, and if I had why didn’t he intervene at that point? My friends and I are all in our 40’s and 50’s, one is an ex police officer. I have enjoyed many and evening at Quinns, and have played music there before. I and my friends will not be coming back!
I definitely agree with Rhonda. I've been going to Copperhead Road since it opened are we are always kicked out of our seats! I would take my business elsewhere if it wasn't to support our linedance instructor on Thursday nights. Copperhead's excuse for doing this is to allow for more people to pack the place and those seats take up so much precious space! You've GOT TO BE KIDDING! The car seats are a nice novelty, but for goodness sake, get some real barstools that don't take up so much space and let us older folks sit on our butts and enjoy a drink or two!
You have to be careful here. 95% of the time the food is unbeatable, and then there is the other 5%. My favorite dishes there are the fish and chips, the bangers and mash, and sheppard's pie.
I have been going there for around 5 years now, and almost always order one of my 3 favorites. It's ususally great, BUT... a couple times a year it's horrible (and that's an understatement!) The last time I was there I ordered the Shppard's pie. It came with a well done top and the gravy was so thin and overpowered with rosemary it was disusting. Now the waitstaff and manager were all over it trying to make it better. I'll definately give them that. The second try at the pie was even worse than the first. I fianlly had to change to the bangers and mash which was rushed (as by the time I got it my wife had already finished her meal) was not properly cooked. I walked... and have not returned.
The one thing you NEVER do in a restaurant is serve undercooked pork (or chicken for that matter).
So, unless they've corrected the problem, which is sporadic, your taking the quality of your evening, and your health, in your hands!
