Poor Service

Very poor service, bunch of young kids with no concept of customer service. Very thugish inner city feel. Off my list to return.

After a long day of travel, we were looking for anything that wasn't fast food. The meal was unexpectedly tasty. The salad bar was well above average and very fresh. We'd go back.

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
