We had to wait a bit to get in on a Sunday morning but it was worth the wait!! Our waitress was so sweet she made up for how busy it was....as they ran out of mugs and had to serve coffee in paper cups. Food was very good, I had the eggs benidict CA style and they were yummy,... More

Ruby's on Huntington Pier is like stepping back to America of the 1960's in an old fashioned diner. Long wait times some evenings but service was quick and food was great. We were a party of 6 and had chicken tenders, burgers, fries and sweet potato fries as well as malts and shakes.

Yes open for breakfast. Had lunch, short wait and then seated near a window. Could watch the people fish and they did catch them. Server was prompt, took our order , food was served hot. Comfort food for us being fries, tuna melt and hamburger. Good for a couple of old folks Devore was 50-60's. Would come back again

First time here - both on the pier and at Ruby's. They have the perfect spot for those who want something cold without getting wet. Ordered the basic vanilla cone to go. Quite tasty and refreshing on those days when the temperatures are above average.

I visited here with my wife and children (ages 7 and 9) and we were all impressed. First of all, it's on the end of a pier so it's basically a restaurant sitting on top of the water. That was a big draw to even coming to the place because it's unique in that aspect. On top of that, the... More

So glad we went to Ruby's! The shakes were AMAZING! Everyone loved their burgers. I had the clam chowder and the frings (French fries and onion rings)...so good. Great service at the end of a pier...so cool.

My sons and I had milkshakes at Rubys on the pier. During our walk along the pier we just happened upon Rubys. The shakes were really good and I would recommend them to anyone.

I had an excellent hamburger and an old fashioned milk shake. Both had great flavor and the shake came with the old fashioned metal can. Great ocean views from where we sat.
