Ray and Jen are always overseeing the operations with ease, efficiency and smiles! They are perfect behind the helm of Gumbo Limbo...we are always warmly greeted and recognized upon our arrival by the wonderful staff... whether they are our server or not. That is true Ritz hospitality which set the bar high and raised service and food expectations to their competitors dismay.We are excited for the renovations and look forward to the swivel chairs which allow accessibility to slip into the high tables with ease overlooking the beautiful Gulf views. Our food is always cooked to perfection and we appreciate the casual side of beach dining....in a five star hotel! We have been enjoying the Ritz 20+ years and it was our inspiration to invest in properties close by (bay colony) with the intention to enjoy another 20 years of the Best In Class 5 star Luxury Hotel and Restaurant. I grew up hands on in our Hotel and Restaurant business running it with my mom and our most memorable vacations were at this Ritz when our hotel was closed for the season. Thank you for changing our lives as new neighbors and helping us enjoy retirement as loyal patrons to your wonderful restaurants and spa!!! Bravo to the entire crew in the front of the house and behind the kitchen scenes!!!

Wonderful evening all around. Sometimes it just works out that way.

The entry bar was very crowded, but we worked our way through, walking the narrow boardwalk lined with tables, bypassing many tables already occupied. We lucked out and a perfect table by the railing opened up, with the best view of the sunset, just between the palm trees.
Our server Ervis was the best, friendly and attentive and we knew we were in for a perfect evening even before the food arrived.
We had the Chips and Salsa, Burger and Marinated Chicken Kebob. Beer to drink.

We thought we were too full for dessert. They already rung the bell on the beach for the sunset, sun was down and we were ready for the check. Ervis brought out a slice of Key Lime pie. For us to share. It was delicious and unexpected sweet ending!

The food was good, the sunset spectacular, service excellent!
It is often the small gestures that make an evening special.
Key Lime Pie!
Thank you Ervis Majollari for making our evening fun!

This has to be one of the primo spots in Naples to have dinner and drinks. The place is always packed and waits can be long, but they have ingeniously set up a long, and I mean long bar leading up to the restaurant from the beach. You don't mind the wait since the views are sublime and you wind up meeting people anyway. The food is pretty good, though we only had coconut shrimp, a burger and a salad. But our service was out of this world, from our terrific gal Mindy to the bussers, they were all SUPER friendly and amiable. I think we'd come back for the service as much as for the food.

Recently stay at the Ritz, had take out lunch from Gumbo Limbo, ordered the chicken salad of $26, there was nothing special about the sandwich, a bit over pieced for the size. the view from the restaurant is beautiful.
