While staying in Huntington, we took our children and grandkids to Ruby's. Unique experience. It's at the end of the pier, over the water, so it's a special treat for grandkids. The hamburgers were good, as well as the milk shakes. Great time!

We went on a Sunday afternoon and were told that there would be a 40 - 50 minute wait for a table of four. With the location at the end of the pier, we greatly enjoyed the scenery while waiting for our table - the 40 minutes went by quickly with watching waves, playing in the sand, and watching the...

This Ruby's diner is on the iconic pier in Huntington Beach CA, "Surf City USA" and is well known. The Ruby's is out over the water, so you have a nice view of the pacific ocean with boats and surfers. The food is excellent and the atmosphere is amazing! I will have to come here again!

Best clam chowder I ever had. Friendly staff, great views and clean toilets. Children loved watching the balloon man and we're thrilled with the Dart Vader and Frozen balloons. A very enjoyable afternoon. What more can I say!!!

As a recent transplant from Texas to California and a long time employee in the FoodService business let me start by saying that I've had my fair share of burgers. Ruby's on the HB pier has the hands down best burger in Cali thus far! It smokes Habit, 5 Guys, Grinderz and all the rest. Great quality, great food and... More

We had burgers, fries, and shakes at Ruby's. The food was pretty average, but the shakes were wonderful. We sat right by the windows and loved watching the ocean. The seagulls outside seemed to love the fries.

We went on a Sunday afternoon. Very busy, but don't get discouraged. It's well worth the wait. The staff were amazing and friendly. I customized my burger, and the did it exactly how I asked. The portions are generous. My burger dripped of the ingredients I asked for, much like a Carl's Jr commercial, as real burgers should be. If... More

A must if you are visiting Huntington Beach. My boys enjoyed the cookie dough milkshake. I had the all american burger that had a thin and tasty patty. We all shared the crispy onion rings. The service couldn't be beat either.
