We first visited The Ritz 4 years ago and the place hasn't changed a bit! The food portions are huge. Breakfast will keep you full all day! The prices are very reasonable and the wait staff is awesome. You can share plates, which I recommend if you are not very hungry or a light eater. Stop by- you won't be... More

The staff here is quite friendly and great service. Breakfast is tastey and plentiful. Convenient location to downtown Oswego. Parking can be tight sometimes. Also be aware that during salmon fishing season it it very crowded!

Another type of diner place to eat if that is what you are looking for. A little bit pricey for what they serve but over all the food was good however the time it took to get out was not so good. Very very slow especially cause they weren't busy at the time. The restaurant looks unique from the inside... More

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
