Good diner food at reasonable prices and an unmatched location. Ruby's does this end of the Pier niche well enough that it appeals to locals as much as tourists. Superior milkshakes.

We were served upstairs and enjoyed the sweet Pacific view. Large plates of grub offered in a relaxed environment in the company of swell tunes from the 1940's era. I like to bring my friends to this place. It has good energy.

Good classic diner food - chocolate banana shake was fabulous. They do serve salads and so my choice was the Cobb with blue cheers dressing. Very nice. My wife had the turkey burger with side salad. All in all good value and nice service. Recommend for brunch - arrive early, you may have a 30 min wait!

We very much enjoyed our breakfast at Ruby's. It located on the end of the Huntington Beach Pier. It's a little bit of a walk, but well worth it. We went for breakfast and both had the cinnamon roll french toast. It was awesome and was a huge helping with several sides as well. A large amount of food for... More

Service and meal was excellent, like being on a ship with the views out West from the end of Huntington Pier. Great atmosphere and the Charm of the American Diner from the 50's. Well appointed in the red colour scheme with traditional furniture.

Can't beat the location at the end of Huntington Beach Pier. The French toast is yummy and lots of people like their malts and shakes. It is quite a long walk out to the end of the pier. There is pay parking at the pier as well as metered parking on the street. Quite often you can see Dolphins and... More

The omelets were unexpectedly delicious. The location is amazing; the food an added bonus. Service is friendly.

At the extreme end of the pier; if you don't like to walk or it's a lousy weather night, don't go. Service was very good; food was good, not great. The "umlimited" fries not exactly for the healthy. Alternate Ahi-tuna burger tasty. Place is lit was too much. Zero ambiance, looks a little dirty, zero decor.

Six of us went to Ruby's for our grandson's birthday. Good food and their service staff was fine. One of the best Ruby Melts aka. Patty Melts, that I've ever had. They gave our grandson a free sundae after dinner. Most of the burger prices are $8.99 and come with fries. We'll be back.
