Overall a good experience . Great place for a casual date night or friends night out! Drinks and service were great. The food was probably 7/10 overall but I would return to try Other items on the menu for sure!

We ordered the artichoke dip, mozzarella moons, ahi tuna entree and salmon entree.

One and done! Converted liquor store, beer refrigerators still line the walls, all interior walls are painted black and they hung white lights. We started at the bar for a cocktail and the guy next to my husband was trying to get in a conversation with him as if they were together and not us. He was pointing out women in the bar and asking my husband what he thought about their figures, “that one doesn’t have big enough….”.
We get to our table and our waiter introduces himself they he’s gone for 20 mins. We finally place our order and it takes another 25 mins for our appetizers to arrive. Then only 2 minutes later our entrees arrive, now we have ALL OUR FOOD AT ONE TIME, our waiter says “oh sorry”. We order dessert and coffee, he brings our dessert and says “we’re all out of coffee, not a grind left in the place”. Needless to say, the place is horrible and we’ll never return.

Hi Charles, Thanks so much for your feedback! Sorry you didn't like how we designed the interior, had a bad exchange with another guest, received your entrees too quickly and were told we were out of coffee. Tough night! We love our design and can't stop people from speaking to you but we've terminated your server based on your feedback.

In AC with golf friends and brought them here. Food was the star here...Shrimp scampi is the best and so are the scallops app. Service wasn't super fast but that seems to be everywhere right now so I think that's temporary. Great new spot

Man, Ryfe was freakin' great! The bartender was cool and the Lemon Pepper wings were out of this world. I had two orders they were so good. It's a new neighborhood place for those looking for something a little off the beaten path. Not much to look at from the exterior but quite nice inside. Great find.

The manager greeted us at the door and we were quickly sat in the dining room for dinner. Our server took a little while to get to our table but the host told us they've been short staffed all summer and service and inventory on items has been challenging so to keep that in mind so, with that in mind, the service as actually pretty good! We started with an appetizer and decided to try the Margarita flatbread. It's not a classic Margarita style as I expected but it was very good. We also had the Crab Cake Salad and Rib Eye and both were better than expected and I'd say really, really good. Cheesecake was good as a dessert item. It was great food, good service, beer was cold (hard to screw up) and the place itself was cool.

Second trip here and maybe better than the first. Had a cool band playing that were really, really good. The food is the reason to come here. The shrimp scampi I got was the best I've had. My girlfriend loved her couscous dish and added some scallops that were huge and fantastic. Great AC addition!

Sky was our bartender and she hooked us up and recommended the special that day which was a filet and lobster tail. They were on the smaller side but were noted as such on the specials sheet. Regardless, both were great and the Old Fashioned they served, they have their own twist on the traditional (who doesn't these days), was actually quite good as I don't typically go for too much deviation from the traditional. All-in-all a great place and scores high praise from me.

The food was overpriced and run of the mill. The service was not great - started pleasant, if not a bit over the top, but our server quickly disappeared and seemed to forget drinks that were ordered. Finally brought them at least 20 min later with excuses that they had a large party inside (that had just arrived and would not have affected our orders had they been placed at the bar when we ordered them and not 20 min later). The outside was nice and had a table large enough for our party of 10, but two people were dripped on by overhead pipes the whole time.

In town for comedy show and gave this place another visit with our friends. Baxter is great and drinks wonderful. They were out of Chops due to Covid but that's understandable as the owner came over to talk to us about why which was cool and helped a ton as we didn't realize how tough things still are. The filet was great as our sub so still our new go-to spot.

Another great time at Ryfe. We come here at least twice a week now. Things to know: they have daily specials so ask about those, there is a 1/2 price app happy hour for VIP members which is for locals but if you go and know about it they'll honor it, and there is music every Friday. As other reviews have pointed out, the food here is really great.

Never again. For $29 I got 4 tiny scallops and a full plate of rice with no vegetables. My boyfriend's cheesesteak was soggy - I'm pretty sure the meat was dog food and the cheese was fake. We both had the Ryfearita, which is supposed to be a spicy margarita...they threw ONE jalapeno slice in each drink (not spicy) and I'm pretty sure there was half a shot of tequila in there...it basically tasted like water.
The decor is cool and seems like fun place if you're just ordering a bottle of beer - can't screw that up. Just leave before you have to use the bathroom - it was filthy.

We were in AC with my family for the week vacation. We were walking distance from Ryfe and our host told us to check it out while we were in town. Well, we have a big family and we didn't want all the kids at a bar so a small group of adults went to Ryfe. We were greeted by Margaret who was a pleasant young lady and did a great job taking care of us as the place was jammed and our table was not quite ready. We got drinks at the bar which were fabulous. We sampled many of the signature cocktails and they were all yummy based on your taste preferences. We then moved to our table and had apps and entrees and some desserts. Too many items to list here as we tried as many as we could but the stand outs for us were the Scallops Florentine and the Shrimp Scampi. The scallops were huge and pan seared perfectly over a bed of spinach. You know a good restaurant when they shave their garlic! The Shrimp Scampi sauce was just amazing. We kept ordering more bread to dip in the sauce. EVERYTHING was great! So much so we decided to get take out from there so the rest of the family could enjoy it also. Again, rave reviews from everyone, even the kids loved the burgers and the wings! Thanks Ryfe, you really made an impact on our vacation and we'll be back next summer!

What a wonderful experience at Ryfe for my daughter's birthday party. Chef Marvin made everything great and made sure the kids food wasn't too fancy for their liking while still preparing wonderful dishes for the adults. Mr. John made sure all things run smoothly. Amy went out of her way to get the kids frozen smoothies that made them very happy. Wonderful place for party!

Outstanding! Drove here with husband and two friends from Haddonfield as we're friends with the owners and hadn't had a chance to get there because of the pandemic. Although friends, I can honestly say this place is really, really special. The inside is redone and hip, the drinks good, atmosphere and staff is upbeat, and the food is the hook. The 20oz Rib Eye my husband had was one of the best steaks he's had anywhere. I had the Couscous dish which has truffled mushrooms, arugula, roasted tomatoes and other goodness on it making it delicious. Our friends got the Scallops Florentine as an app and liked it so much they got it again as their entree along with the Pork Chop which had to be almost 2 inches thick but still juicy inside which is the trick of good chops...or so I was told by my friends wife who is also a chef. She was raving about the food the entire ride home. Thanks so much John and Ryfe! Your doing a great job and we'll be back and will definitely tell our friends.

I just want to say what an INCREDIBLE experience we had yesterday at Ryfe. Amy and the staff really went above and beyond to make my fathers 90th birthday dinner the extraordinary experience we wanted it to be. Amy was SO accommodating and professional and the staff was polite, efficient and timed everything perfectly.

And the food? WOW! From the appetizers to the entrees, everything was cooked perfectly and so delicious! The sauce on the shrimp dishes, tender filet, crust on the salmon, al dente veggies, mashed potatoes... I heard so many rave reviews from our guests. It was definitely the best meal we have had in a long time.

I just cannot thank you and Amy enough for jumping through hoops to make this a truly perfect evening for all of us.

I wish you all much success with this amazing restaurant and will definitely be back many times in the future.
