It was like going back to the 1950s. Just like the diners you see in the movies. I loved it. The food was good and the service was friendly, and it is right on the beach. Excellent. The kids loved it too.

Food was fresh and in sensible portion sizes. One of my sons fell for the PBJ sandwich completely and we had to have seconds and a second trip there. Great place and responsibly priced.

The food was awesome and the atmosphere is great. It is a true 50's diner. Very family friendly. The shakes are homemade and the burgers are fantastic.

Waitresses are dressed in period outfits, are friendly and give an efficient service. We had a mixture of milk shakes, coffees, eggs benedict, oats and waffles all of which were very good. The diner is... More

Ruby's is an old fashioned diner that serves up the original malts, burger and fries that really tastes like they did back in the 50-60's. The decor goes along with the dining experience. The waitresses give excellent service and the background music goes along with the atmosphere. My group had fish tacos, turkey pot pie (huge portion & good) and... More

This is a 50s diner style restaurant. The service was quick and the food was good. The kids enjoyed the retro feel of it; and we had great views of the water.

The burgers were excellent, the fries and drinks are bottomless and children eat free - what more could you want. How about an onsite balloon artist to delight your children - what a find.

We went here for Milkshakes after our hotel swap from The Portofino (please see my hotel reviews) to the Crowne Plaza in Redondo Beach. The Milkshakes are lush and We will certainly be back if we are in the area. We also went for breakfast the next day and we were seated promptly. We ordered a blueberry pancake combo (two... More
