Old-fashioned prices at this day and age with incredible comfort. Without a doubt the food was wonderful and service was exactly what you want, prompt and accommodating. I am always pleased with the food,service and price. No place on the island comes close to Readys.

Very hot morning was made worse when Ready's air conditioning was marginal and their ice machine was broken. We had biked from Margate in hot humid weather and this was not welcome news.

Ready's has the very best chicken salad platter that I have ever tasted. When the waitress asks "Can I get you anything else" I want to say "my entire order, again".

Can't go wrong with anything on the menu.All food is cooked to order, nothing fancy but just well made. Lots of locals dine there, which is always a good sign.
