The location is awesome for the views and a fun family spot. Food was hot and "fresh", so it was excellent for what it was, but it's diner food, and I'd prefer something a bit more healthy. Plus the wait for the food was pretty substantial. We had pretty much long since filled up on our shakes (yes, I cheated... More

I hesitate to recommend this restaurant, because it is one of my favorites, and don't want to make more popular. The location is fantastic and the 1/4 mile walk to it is very pleasant. Management has always been customer focussed.

Enjoyable walk to the end of the pier. Plan for a wait Weekends for Breakfast. Can be chilly most times of the year, so plan on a light jacket or hoody! Service can be Hit or miss. Had some very very good service & times where they hadn't a clue what they were doing. But the view makes up for... More

By far the best view while eating a great diner style lunch! It was busy when we arrived, but once seated order was taken pretty fast. Though from that point on it was very slow service. Didn't mind to much since we didn't want to leave the view! Watched a pod of dolphins, surfers, even a few sea lions too.... More

We love Ruby's. I took my son there to get the CA experience. Great food and shakes. They don't charge more because they are on the pier which I liked. Clean and great views. We went weekday during lunch and place was almost empty:) There IS seating upstairs for a better view. We definitely will be back:)

This Ruby's Diner in Huntington Beach is at the end of the Huntington Beach Pier and is one of my favorite places to eat! Great view of the ocean, a fun vibe with the 1950's diner theme, great food and fun servers. Their milk shakes are out of this world and everything else is delicious too! You should go... you...

If you want to take your family to eat with an ocean view without paying exorbitant prices, go to Ruby's Diner in Huntington Beach. Almost as much fun as eating there is the walk up and down the pier. Parking is cheap (pay by the hour) on the north side of the pier. Make sure to order a milk shake... More

This is a typical 50's diner with period décor and menu. If you want a trip back in time at a fabulous location this is your place. The menu is typical of the period with hamburgers and shakes that are reminiscent of the 50's teen hang outs. If you are a "boomer" this will take you back to your youth.... More
