A good experience with a few glitches

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... read 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

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.

Went there for breakfast, the service was very good. The breakfast entrees were a nice size... It's not expensive so that's a plus. It's good for a quick breakfast. We stayed across the street at the Crowne plaza so it was convient, and sitting outside was a delight..

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... 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
