Delicious breakfast with a view

The view is spectacular that is why I decided to go in for breakfast but delighted the blueberry pancakes over easy eggs and the best bacon. The server was great but but the order was a little slow but you don't mind because looking at the ocean view is so pretty. I love the decor they have a mini... read more

Visited here with the family from Anaheim. The menu is ideal for family dining, the food was tasty and the service great. The show stealer most definitely is the view - be sure to get a window seat it's worth it !

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!

During a recent visit to Huntington Beach, we were recommended Ruby's due to the great locale on the pier. The burger was delicious, but didn't taste the special sauce so had to ask for more. They had unlimited fries, and the shakes looked good, but didn't have one in order to not exceed too many calories.

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.
