When I lived in OJ county in the 90's, I went to Ruby's Diner restaurants on a regular basis. On a business trip to the Beach cities, I was staying at the Portofino Inn & Resort and this dining establishment was a short walk. Service is friendly and prompt, mostly by younger workers. Yummy burgers and shakes and a nice... More

This is a handy spot near the harbor with nice water views. Food is adequate, service is good, but I would not recommend the coffee. Ask for discount if you are over 50.

I popped in a couple of times as I was staying just across the street. The welcome was pleasant, seated quickly in good locations. Service was fast and friendly, I had a breakfast both days and it came out fast and just as ordered. I was given a survey to call in and receive $2 off my next visit so... More

This is a great restaurant in Redondo Beach for the local. Right on the beach. You can walk to it from the pier (which means we can walk from our house too). The inside is bright and cheery with fish that cruise around a track overhead. Fun stuff. If only the food wasn't just routine chain fare. You could get... More

Menu has a variety for a Burger diner. It was clean, food was good and generous with amount. Salad was especially fresh. We ate on the patio and atmosphere was nice. Price fair for food,. Watch the price on the drinks though. Service was slow but will go again!

My wife had a chocolate malt and I had a chocolate shake. We enjoyed immensely. The service was good but the restaurant was not very clean... a little surprised. However, the shakes were amazing.

Had a mushroom and Swiss burger and it was pretty good! Food was good and service was friendly and pretty efficient! Thought the burger was slightly overpriced but not too bad. Overall I enjoyed my visit to Ruby's

You can be assured that when you dine at Ruby's your meal will be just as good as the last time. My favorite is their huevos ranchos. This is quite a sizeable, and good, meal to start the day. It's unique in that the tortillas are crispy fried. Ruby's eggs are always fresh and, served with cheese, black beans and... More
