This week. I was able to find another brand-new place as The Ridge Bar & Grill, located at 4570 S. Hualapai Way just opened three weeks ago.

They totally remolded the establishment, turning it into a hip place to hang out and have drinks. The lounge area is really cool as they have comfy chairs around cocktail tables with two giant TV screens on two of the walls and an even bigger fireplace, giving it the feel you are at a ski lodge while enjoying adult beverages. I have to admit, watching a game on the giant TV while sitting by the fire was quite enjoyable.

I was out playing poker with a plan of just playing a couple hours then grabbing dinner. But when you are on a heater and running well you don’t stop to eat. So after finally cashing out, it’s 11 p.m. and I’m starving. The great thing about living in Las Vegas is no matter what time it is you can find a good place to eat. I had driven by this place a few times as it’s just a few minutes from my house, so I decided to give it a try.

My waitress Rachel was such a sweetheart going over all her favorites on the menu, a menu that isn’t your typical Bar & Grill menu. Yes, they have all the usual items you would expect, but it was the other items that intrigued me.

Rachel highly recommended the short rib. It was one very large braised short rib served with mashed potatoes and glazed carrots. This dish was phenomenal as the short rib pulled apart with just a fork. The meat just fell off the bone and that bone that was left looked like something out of a Fred Flintstone cartoon. The best part of the entree was that dinner was just $17.

My first experience at The Ridge was so good I went back the next day for lunch as I wanted to watch the football game and try the sandwiches. Rachel suggested as she was spot on with her Short Rib recommendation. I got a seat in the lounge area right in front of one of the big TV’s and ordered LA’s Grilled Cheese that has White Cheddar and Muenster cheeses with candied bacon on grilled thick cut Sourdough bread. They made the bacon extra crisp and gave it both a sweet and salty taste. The sandwich comes with fries or Roasted Tomato Soup. I substituted Tater Tots for fries. The sandwich was very good.

The menu is incredible with so many choices, especially with the specialty dishes like Wild Salmon, Sea Bass, Seafood Linguine along with Filet and Rib-Eye Steak. They have a dish called Red Bird Brick Chicken that looks very interesting.

Save room for dessert as I tried the Cookies and Milk that was a Chocolate Chip brownie cookie with a Bourbon butter glaze heated and served with Vanilla Ice Cream. This will definitely satisfy anyone’s sweet tooth.

The wait staff were are all super friendly and the food was outstanding and very reasonably priced. Add in the lounge area and fireplace and it makes The Ridge Bar & Grill a great place to hang out and get a great meal. I give them my rare rating of 4 Forks.
