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!

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!...
