Bartender was too busy talking to make our drinks. Took 10 minutes to get my first mixed drink and they were NOT busy. Sent the wrong draft beer 2 of 3 times. Our waitress was frustrated and I felt sorry for her. We waited 40 minutes for our food and 2 of the 4 orders were not complete. Manager was... More

Filthy conditions, horrible service, mediocre food. Stay away. The place is not understaffed, but very poorly trained. They wander around doing little while customers wait for service. It was the dirty floors and uncleared tables that really made a horrible impression.

We were seated and waited on right away. Our waitress was interactive and entertained our daughter. The salad bar was fresh and cold. Our main dishes were served hot and quick as well.

Let me start by talking about the service. Our waitress, I forget her name (she should be thankful of that) probably visited our table once every 20 minutes. I can usually tolerate poor service if the food is respectable, however; that was not the case here. Ruby Tuesday used to be a favorite restaurant of mine, and this was my... More

We were traveling south and stopped at Ruby Tuesday's for dinner. Service was very good and price was average. Two of our parties ordered burgers which were cooked exactly how they asked. I ordered the chicken bella with the garden bar. It was very tasty. I was a little surprised at the garden bar as that is exactly what is... More

I've eaten here four times in the past few months and have been disappointed every time I've eaten here. Service was usually very slow and orders were usually wrong. The last time I went I ordered salmon and it was drastically undercooked, not even close to being cooked through. The manager apologized said they wouldn't charge me for the dinner... More

Ate there with a friend & we were the only people there at 5 pm. Food tasted okay but as we finished the meal & paid we noticed a small live red bug crawling in the plate of biscuits. I alerted the waiter & he carried the plate to management & the management never attempted to talk to us about... More

I had some things happen to me at this restaurant that I’ve never experienced before! One waitress got visibly angry with the hostess for not seating our group in her section, then basically took our table from our waitress. She was nice enough but was painfully slow – it was nearly a 2 hour dining “experience” and the place was... More

The last couple of meals had been disappointing but we thought we would give them one more try since they are close to our home. The waiter was very friendly, efficient and the order was correct so we will be back. Husband had the rib eye blackened, cooked medium rare and it was perfect. I enjoyed the bacon cheeseburger and...
