I been here 4 times in 12 years. I mainly come for the seafood, which can be quite good. Its a nice night out to entertain folks, as they can try different style beers. For the beer geeks its very disappointing. I tried the mailbock which is quite decent, but nothing I would make a special trip for. It can be a fun place if they have any live music.
Service varies allot by when you come in and where you sit.
I have to rate this place low, because I think of all the local GB this is the worse. Go for the food, not the beer.
Some folks like their beer and that's great, and its on the beach.
Ok its not that bad but its just a restaurant really that happens to make a beer of two and not that well.
Visit again on August 20, 2010:
not much changed, had the seasonal bock, it sucked like most their beers, the strange stout was really bad this time, not Recommended. Food was decent.

We used to stop by Ragtime regularly for the food more than the beer, but about a year and a half ago the food quality fell off dramatically. This seems to have happened at all of the Gordon Biersch owned brewpubs in the area at about that time. At this point I wouldn't bother with the food, it is overpriced and mediocre, which is a shame because as I said it used to be quite good. The atmosphere is pretty standard for a beach restaurant, though it turns into a douchey pickup spot for sad middle aged people late night. The beer is ok, pretty average, outdated 90s brewpub stuff (a light, a stout, a pale ale, etc). There is the occasional seasonal. All are well made but uninspired. Much better beer at Greenroom or Engine 15, but people who don't know any better will like Ragtime's offerings.

I love the beer but the food is not impressive at all. There are only a couple good things on the menu, and many times I have received my food over cooked and in poor form. I even found a curly dark hair on my sandwich once. The restaurant is pretty dingy and needs a good deep cleaning and a remodel. The beers that are brewed on premises are wonderful! They have a pale ale that is very hoppy with a pretty high ABV!!! They always have a seasonal brew that changes. This place has a devoted group of frequenting customers that attend happy hour on a daily basis.
Overall, great beer, food needs huge improvement!

Atmosphere - As you walk in the bar area is to your left and the dinning room is to your right. Behind the is a glass wall dividing the bar from the brewery. Lots of wood throughout the place. Has a small town local restaurant feel for some reason.
Quality/Selection - They had six house beers on tap that where fairly average tame styles. Their Pale was probably the best thing they had on during my visit. Sad to say I don't think too many people are coming here for locally crafted beer.
Service - I sat at the bar during my visit and was served by the bartender. In this day in age of lowered standards I'll say he was average. I asked for some beer and he brought it to me and then asked if I wanted anything else to which I replied with yeah a menu. The menu never came so I finished my beer and left.

Ragtime has a good reputation and seems to be popular with the locals. I've been a couple times and while I don't hate the place, I'm not as impressed at a lot of other people.
It's not a bad place, it's actually well above average, but it's just not great like a lot of people have told me.
It's a well-updated place, not a little hole in the wall. The staff is friendly and there are nice views of the action around the building if you can get a window table.
The food is fair, not bad, not great, but a bit pricey. Same with the beer. I read over the beer selection several times before finally deciding what I wanted. It wasn't because the selection was huge, I just didn't see anything that I really wanted.
It's a place to go once, but my wife and I don't make a habit of it.

Located a mere two blocks from the beach, the main doorway opened on to the combo m.d.s. and logo item display case on the right with a bar at a left oblique and another bar running down the left wall. The main bar, however, was all of the way aft on the right and it was a marble topped square with the kitchen off to the left. There was bi-level restaurant seating (booths below, tables and chairs above) on the left, approaching the lav. Once again, my Gordon Biersch Passport Rewards card was accepted. Keep scoffing at my love of chain brewpubs, but I'm going to keep frequenting them. Friendly staff and I got to meet the brewer.
Beers: Dolphin's Breath Lager; Westbury Wheat; Red Brick Ale; A. (Alexander) Strange Stout.
Seasonals - Honey Bock; Bitter American Pale Ale.
