Love chicken and avocado sandwiches. Great soup, too. Root beer! 50's atmosphere! Ocean! Was great. French fries were also good.

My husband and I and our 2 small children had an AMAZING vacation in Oceanside and on the way home thought we would end out trip with breakfast at the end of the pier at Rubys. AWFUL decision. First off the restaurant was dingy and dirty looking, but the view out the window is awesome so I gave it a... More

What a cool place for a restaurant...out on the Pier! But we walked in and found a lack of cleanliness, particularly in the bathrooms. Gross smell! The service was slow and we had to ask several times for certain items. The food, however, looked and tasted really good. A bit pricy though. If you ask me, a well-run fish N... More

It has good diner food but it seems to taste bester as your looking at the ocean. Service is good even if you have to wait for a table it seems to be a popular place.

There are easier Ruby's to get to, but the walk to the end of the pier really works up an appetite. The 50s malt shop decor and the corresponding food makes it a nice experience. But the real reason you walked the length of the pier is the view. And what a view !! So bring your family, your significant... More

We went on the day they have a special of 2 for 1. The food was fresh and hot. The servers, in their cute 50's outfits were very courteous and helpful. You can sit inside our choose the outside patio. The view can't be beat!

It was wonderful, love the milkshakes and hamburgers. My kids loved the fries as well. A little bit of a wait but was worth it! The views are great!

The Ruby's Diner I visited last week is located at the end of the Oceanside, Ca pier in Oceanside, Ca. It is located over the ocean so that one can eat and watch the dolphins or a beautiful sunset. Service is the best, prices are fair, and food is consistently excellent.
