The food that we had was far above average and was reasonably priced. It was very close to our hotel and definitely... read more

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

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

Arrived around 6:45 pm on a Thurday. Place was busy but not at all swamped. After waiting for nearly 30 minutes, we finally flagged down a server. Up to that point, we were ignored and no one would make eye contact with us even after politely waving and saying excuse me many times. Our orders taken, the shakes came out... More

Wife and I went for breakfast. It was not busy at all so the service was fast and attentive. Food was tasty. Glitches - the potatoes with the bacon and egg breakfast were warm, not hot; they subsequently served some hot replacements. Had to ask them to turn down the music volume which they did. Nice wide array of menu... More

It was great food at Ruby's. I tried a lot, it was all great. There are many choices and you won't have any thing more than once (unless you really like it that yo will).

Best huevos rancheros I have ever eaten. Retro atmosphere is fun. Friendly and fast service. Look up to see the swimming fish.
