You feel like you are floating on the waves, very uncrowded and didn't even know Ruby's served breakfast. The cinnamon roll french toast was yummy.

We eat here about once a year when we visit Oceanside. Hamburgers and seafood are good. They are known for their milkshakes. There are usually crowds around noon and at dinner hours, but they process people through pretty efficiently. Most tables have an ocean view.

Ruby's is right at the end of the pier, and after a fun walk along the pier watching the pelicans, the people fishing and enjoying the gorgeous view, popping into this 50's style diner was a treat. My cobb salad was truly amazing, the best I've ever had and I've had many! Turkey, bacon, blue cheese, egg, tomatoes, avocado...then the... More

Small number of menu items, but the standard dishes are well represented. Good food, great view, great service.

What fun this resturant is. At the end of the pier and a beautiful view of the ocean. Took us back in time to the 50"s. Staff was great, and the food was really good. I said not the best meal because we didn't have a meal, just a snack. Milk Shakes wer wonderful and they give you the metal... More

The location at the end of the Oceanside Pier just can not be beat. Ruby's serves great hamburgers and fried onion rings but there are certainly other tasty treats on the menu. Their chocolate malts are outstanding too.

We had lunch here with great views of the ocean and beaches, palm trees, surfers and fishermen. I had a chicken Caesar salad and my friend had seafood chowder, after tasting a sample, as there are some she does not like. We also had a strawberry lemonade - the first I've tasted, and my friend had an apple tart with... More

Located at the end of the Oceanside Pier, Ruby's is a good place to have a nice sit down meal with a family "50's" atmosphere. The very food is good and services is very good. Do plan on a walk, the pier is 1,954 FT (about a third of a mile).
