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!

Chaperoned a school outing with a lot of children aged 12 to 13. Kids loved the burgers and fries. Typical beach diner restaurant atmosphere. Prices are competitive

We enjoyed many meals here during our visit to Redondo summer 2014. Loved the 50s vibe, and the staff were so friendly and helpful! Beautiful Gaynor is probably one of the loveliest and sweetest waitresses I've ever met, she couldn't do enough to make us happy, and it was so nice when she lit up after recognizing us coming back!...

Overall, what you'd expect with a throw-back style diner. Good atmosphere - great place to bring kids. Typical diner food (Burgers, fries, sandwiches, etc). Food was prepared well. I was here on business and just needed a quick place for lunch. I stopped in at an off hour (2pm) and sat at the counter. Quick and easy. Plenty of parking... More

3 families totaling 13 people so we had to wait a while for the table but was worth the wait. Great location and atmosphere. service was friendly and efficient too.One of the best burgers we've had on our road trip washed down with super creamy and thick shakes. yum
