Fun Location, Fun Atmosphere, Great Burgers & Shakes!

Before checking in to our hotel, we made it a point to stop by Ruby's! We found this place by accident a few summers ago, they were having a car show and we stopped to see all the great cars and decided to go inside and eat and we were glad we did! It is a fun atmosphere inside, like... read more

Having been an original hostess and waitress for Doug and Ralph on Balboa Pier in Newport Beach, this is one of my all-time favorite places to eat! The prices are certainly not the same as they were back in the day, but the food is just as superb as it was then. Parking was being validated at the time of... More

The milkshakes are delicious but not extraordinary. The food is pretty classic Diner food. They have a very nice outdoor seating area so you aren't cooped up inside - and there are umbrella's so you don't have to get a sunburn to enjoy the outside. Ruby's is a great spot to stop and grab a bite to eat.

I go here when I want multi-grain pancakes. I usually order the pancake combo to include scrambled eggs and bacon. I only eat half the pancakes/bacon and take remainder home to freeze for the next pancake urge. On the weekend the food temperature can be less than desired--eggs warm not hot, etc.; but haven't had that problem on a weekday.... More

Tried to find a breakfast joint. Thought there would be more by the ocean. Found this diner. Very good service and food. Large portions with everything ordered. Good work.

Stopped by the Ruby for breakfast on Sunday December 7, 2014. The portions were generous and the waitress was friendly. The service was quick and our food was hot. They need a bit of help making coffee though, a little weak for our taste. They have a nice outdoor patio and a view of a park with water slides.

we dined here on a Saturday morning and it was surprisingly uncrowded. The staff seemed very familiar with the regulars and they made us feel right at home. Our orders arrived just as placed and our coffee cups were always full. Nice view of the beach!
