Friends, a shameless request for your support! Nominations are open for the third annual
Naples Illustrated Dining Awards, and Ridgway Bar & Grill would love to have your vote! As Naples Illustrated seeks to showcase “the Paradise Coast’s best eateries,” please consider naming us in the following categories (or whatever strikes your fancy):
Best Key Lime Pie
Best Wine List
Best Dog-Friendly Dining
Best Special-Occasion Dining
Best for Romance
We’d also love to see Tony’s Off Third in the running for Best Key Lime Pie and Best Dessert, though we may be a little biased.
The nomination phase is only open until August 24, to be followed by votes for the final winners in each category. If you love Ridgway and Tony’s, we’d sure appreciate you taking a quick moment to write us in here.
Labor Day Week – Pardon our Dust
Those of you who know Tony and Sukie know that they only close the restaurant for the most deserving circumstances. Just a quick heads up that from the morning of September 6 through the afternoon of September 8, we will be closed for a quick refresh. We regret any inconvenience this may cause but hope you understand that every once in a while things need a minor facelift, and our intentions are only to be able to continue to serve you for many, many years to come! During this brief closure, the Courtyard Bar will remain open for drink service only, and the full restaurant will reopen for dining on September 8 for dinner service. Thank you for your patience!
Expanded Beer List
In our quest to continue our evolution as a business and destination, we are excited to announce a slight expansion to our beer service, starting this Friday, August 19. Outside at our Courtyard Bar, and also available for service inside the restaurant, we are installing two new taps. Our new selection on tap will include: Stella Artois, Corona Light, SweetWater 420 – an extra pale ale from Georgia, Lagunitas IPA from California, and Pennsylvania favorite Victory HopDevil IPA.
Our selection by the bottle will continue to meet a variety of tastes, from the traditional to the craft brew:
Blue Moon Belgian White
Shipyard Blue Fin Stout
Cigar City Jai Alai IPA
Cigar City Florida Cracker
Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA
Goose Island Sofie Ale
We look forward to changing up our selection slightly throughout the year and will keep you posted as we add new brews! Cheers!
