With some extra hours free in our trip, we decided to visit Morristown and see a few of the local attractions. We wanted to enjoy their museums, and a nearby lunch spot seemed a good idea. Ridgedale Lunch is a classic hold-in-the-wall diner. It occupies...what seems to have once been a family home, with a half-dozen booths, a lunch counter, and the kitchen all contained in what once might have been a living room. We took our seats as the only lunch customers, but the place started to fill up with locals as we ate--always a good sign.. I was impressed that the staff was able to converse with customers in Spanish. Their menu is mainstream--breakfast all day, sandwiches, burgers, the only signature item was the Ridgedale Dog, so I ordered a double. It was two hot dogs, slit lengthwise, and served on a hoagie roll topped with onions, peppers, and potatoes. I suppose if you order the single it comes on a regular hot dog bun? Anyway, it was very messy to eat and I finally opted to go at it with knife and fork, I think the chef should tweak the recipe a little--the roll was too much bread, and the potatoes were vland--I think I'd have crisped up the potatoes like home fires and salted them well, that would make it better. Ny serving also had chips and a little cole slaw, and the slaw was excellent. My wife went for their French toast, and was amazed at the quantity of food--I think it was three or four whole slices of bread, nicely prepared. Overall, it was a lot of good to greeat food for very little money with good service. No complaints.More

We were looking for a place for breakfast and hit the jackpot. Great service, reasonably priced, home style diner with the best coffee I've had in a while

We were in town to visit Morristown National Historical Park and looking for a place to get lunch. Ridgedale Lunch is not far from the Ford Mansion (Washington's headquarters in Morristown), so we made a stop. The food was decent, and the people working there...were really friendly. I would recommend it to anyone visiting the historic sites in Morristown.More

A great spot for lunch or breakfast. All food cooked to order. Sit at the counter or in booths. Some parking in the rear. Exceptional clean spot.

Ridgedale Lunch is the type of luncheonette I used to go to as a kid, the kind that probably could be found throughout small town America. It has a counter and small booths to dine at. The menu is basic with all the usual fare...which suits the place just fine. It is family run, and the service is both efficient and friendly. The food is good, and you can get breakfast items all day (the egg/bacon/cheese on a roll is my favorite). Whenever I'm in the area doing business, this is the place I stop for both breakfast and lunch.More

This is a first-rate breakfast spot. The portions were generous and the food was well-prepared. Service is quick and friendly and attentive (but not too attentive). Prices are more than reasonable. It's just off 287 South with an easy on-off. I'll be making this a...regular stop from now on.More

We had a very nice experience at Ridgedale. The host was very warm. The space was very cosy. The eggs were really great - mushroom and cheese omelette was delectable, and the sausage omelette with homefries and toast was really great too. Coffee was good....Food served hot, coffee cups refilled constantly. Great, hospitable spot. Value for money too.More
