Several years ago my family and I ate at Ruby Tuesday's often, some times once a week. It was always a bustling, busy place with friendly and helpful servers. One of the things I always liked was their salad bar - it was fresh, contained a wide variety of ingredients and yes, it came with a chilled plate. Fast forward... More

The last several times we've been to this Ruby Tuesdays, it just smells. Not sure if they are having plumbing issues or what. But it smells like sewer. I hope they get it fixed. Food is just ok...service a little slow. Nothing to brag about during the last two visits. This is likely the last visit.

Enjoy eating here when in town! The food is always great! The service could use a little improvement!

Ruby Tuesday has always been known for the salad bar and this one was no exception. The choices were fresh and plentiful. The hostess and server were excellent in attending to our needs. I had the bourbon barbecue chicken. It was very tasty and cooked just right. I would certainly recommend eating here when in the area.

I love their salad bar. It isn't huge, but the items are very fresh and there's a good selection. Goes great with one of their steaks!

Menu is OK now and service good. Location is great and parking is adequate. One good point is the access is better than many in town.

Ruby Tuesdays truly makes the most amazing burgers and fries! No one in Oak Ridge can beat their salad bar and I haven't been many other places in traveling that could. Plus they have a strawberry lemonade drink that when you add rum to, OMG! It's a gotta try for sure

Four of us went in for dinner - ordered steaks: one well-done and the other medium-rare. And WOW, they came back - well done and medium rare. Seasoning was to die for and the salads, broccoli and bread rounded out nice meals. But here's the thing. Everyone only ordered water to drink and each couple split one meal and we... More

Ruby's needs to bring out some new menu items. Service was good. Restaurant is very cute, small and intimate. There are TVs everywhere. I cannot concentrate or eat with TVs blaring, so they were kind enough to try and seat me away from them. If people want to watch TV, they should do it at home.

A month ago I would have said Best Ribs Ever!!! I usually eat the best ribs ever several times a month. I went to Ruby Tuesday yesterday and after an awful meal (did not finish) My husband and I mentioned to the server that the ribs were tough and tasted burnt, she told us that they had changed the recipe...
