Very good traditional diner

We're here for breakfast and lunch. The oatmeal at breakfast was almost the best I have tasted and the servings at lunch were huge. Service was friendly and there limitless coffee at breakfast.

Run of the mill - average food - but fun atmosphere taking one back to the fifties. Clean, shining and reasonably priced. If you like burgers, fish and chips, etc., this is the place to go. They sometimes have vintage car shows outside, which is a draw.

Can only comment on breakfast as those were the only times we ate there - three times. Fast and friendly service, excellent quality food. In one case had to ask them to tone down the music.

Our first time to an American diner, and we weren't disappointed. The staff were friendly and efficient, and our waitress announced that we were 'cute'! The portions were enormous, and delicious, and we left the diner with big smiles on our faces.

Enjoyed a great baked Halibut overlooking the water. Prices were very reasonable and staff was attentive.

Ruby's really surprised me. I just thought it would be a typical diner but the 60's motif was very nice.It was extremely clean on the inside and their waitstaff was very good. The food that we had was far above average and was reasonably priced. It was very close to our hotel and definitely within walking distance. My twin daughters... More

Good breakfast menu, reasonably priced and served in a 60's style diner setting. The outside seating area is a great attribute on a sunny morning.

Loved the feel of this 50s style diner and the milkshakes were yummy! Burgers were good and onion rings crispy. Great location near the pier.

We got some takeout meals for this last week. The food was very good . Kind of like a better version of Steak and Shake. The Fish tacos were the best we had on this trip. We were very pleased with the food

Love staying at Redondo Beach when in LA, I really like having Ruby's Diner across the road from where I am staying. We went for Lunch, then dinner, then breakfast. Service for lunch was outstanding, food hot and hit the spot. Dinner was not busy, but the place was messy and we had difficulty ordering, you could tell the wait... More
