A group of us meet for lunch every month. The Ripe Tomato is one of our favorite restaurants. None of us have ever had a bad, or even mediocre, meal here. It has the feel of an old-fashioned roadside tavern. hope they never change.

Stopped in on the road North. This place is awesome. Great portions and the good is delicious. Had the open faced turkey great. Everyone loved what they ordered. Our toddler dropped half his hot dog and the waitress replaced it almost immediately. Great staff. Not far off the interstate and well worth it.

We where a group of fourteen and had reservations. Our waitress was the best and handled this large group very well. I started with the shrimp scallop bisque which was good and very filling, I think next time I would just have a cup and not the bowl. My entree was the Haddock almondine and that was also very good.... More

Had dined at the Ripe Tomato about four years ago. Determined to find it again when returning from Quebec. Even on a crowded Saturday Evening, the gracious host was able to get me excellent seating. Began with Salmon Cakes, which I can never resist. These were superior and served with a delicious spicy salad between the two large cakes. The... More
