We always go for the salad bar. Fresh and cold veggies. Sometimes we pair it with the classic sliders. Always pretty quiet in this location.

We were traveling on the weekend. We had a coupon and decided to use it. We usually enjoy the food at Ruby Tuesday. We like the large salad bar and I also like the non-alcoholic peach drinks. On this occasion I ordered blackened tilapia and my wife ordered the smokie mountain chicken. Both hit a home run. My tilapia was... More

This place is never crowded so if you need to get in and get out, its the perfect place in the area. You do not get a lot of food, but the salad bar is great and that can fill you up. The food is always good.

Today we had our daughters babyshower at the essex ruby tuesday. The place is clean and classy. I worked with the manager who was very helpful with a menu and drink order. He helped set up the area so our party was very comfortable. When i arrived today everything was in place, and the two servers that helped were wonderful.... More

On April 19, 2014 my husband and I patron Ruby Tuesday at the Essex location, and we were served by Eddie (Server 1133). He provided us with very excellent service. He was very polite, kind, and when he spoke he looked you in your eyes, and he smiled as he spoke to you. He was very confident in himself and... More

We stopped at this particular Ruby Tuesday on a trip from South Carolina to Maine. The chain is a known entity for us, so we figured it would be a safe bet for a quick lunch/dinner. When we walked in, the hostess looked depressed and robotic. She seated us, and her demeanor changed only when her boyfriend walked in to... More

The food here was soupy and over seasoned. We usually go to Ruby Tuesday for something light and fresh, but this location seems totally out of the fold. The bathrooms were gross. But the pizza had way to much liquid to the point it was floppy. The seafood was really over seasoned and the shrimp over done. They didn't carry... More

Food overcooked - steak and chicken were rubbery. Service poor - waitress made REALLY poor excuses for everything and put in our orders incorrectly so several of us received something different than what we asked for. No wonder it was completely empty while other restaurants in the area had waits during peak dinner time.

This is the Ruby Tuesday's in Essex, MD The service was good, the menu was typical of a chain restaurant and not much creativity, although they think so. If you like a salad bar, they have lots to offer, I am always wary of them. The atmosphere there is dark, drab, and generally depressing, too much subdued in lighting. The... More
