We didn't want to spend a lot of time looking for restaurants so we were only down the street from this establishment. Food was good...waitress attentive and pleasant. What more do you want? The only thing is that they were out of the cheesecake - looked yummy!

Shared a meal with my husband for a late dinner. Waited a long time for food. Waitress was very nice, refilled tea and water often and a nice environment but still hungry after the meal which we normally share.

My wife and I stopped by for lunch. I ordered a hamburger medium to well done. When it came red juices where leaking all over the plate. I took one bit and that was it. The burger had no taste. Left without having lunch.

4 of us stopped here for a meal as nothing much around on a Sunday. We were all very surprised with the quality of our meals, between us Steak, Ribs and Fish and all of it was of good quality and taste. About $25 each for food and drinks, good value. Try it I think you will like.

Say what you will about chains but when they are working they deliver consistency. This Ruby delivered respectable fresh ingredients for a pleasant meal. Wait staff was prompt and efficient. This spot in Johnson City was no different than LA or Houston but after a long flight, it was no nonsense nutrition. Thanks

It wasn't very busy when we went in, maybe 10 tables at most and that's stretching it. The waiter came, looked absolutely thrilled to be there. He took our drink order, bought drinks later without straws. Went to another table, did business, then brought straws. He took the order. We waited and waited and it wasn't something that takes a...

I always get the salad bar when I visit. The croutons themselves are second to none. The mango iced tea is delicious. Not a huge fan of the little biscuits they bring to the table. The ambiance is nice and the servers are always professional.

Manager suggested a hearty vegetarian burger to my husband, including zuccini, peppers and cheese. He went out of his way to make the dining experience exceptional for a vegetarian at a restaurant that doesn't serve specific vegetarian dishes. Food was simple and delicious. Only complaint I have is that the mushrooms weren't cleaned in the salad bar

My friend & I have eaten at all the area ruby's. The last time we ate at this one I reviewed it as the best one. We wanted to try it again to make sure it was still the best one we have eaten at. I have never had a horrible experience at any ruby's just some better than others.... More
