Not much beats sitting on the patio on a Saturday morning at Ria’s enjoying some of the best pancakes in the city. We can’t get enough of this cozy brunch spot. The menu is affordable, the service is good and the food has yet to disappoint. If you’re more of a breakfast person, pancakes, the Bluebird burrito or the shrimp and grits are typically what we’re gonna pick. Lunch? We’re going to have to go quesadilla or the chicken salad sandwich.

Start off with something from the raw bar or even some gator bites or crab cakes. Choose from plentiful seafood baskets and platters, the steamed shellfish menu, sandwiches and more. A tasty cocktail and seafood in this atmosphere? We’ll say yes to that all day.
