Stopped here for lunch while on holiday.. The restaurant is located outside a mall.. It is decorated like an ole time diner, it needed some fun background music .. Service was extremely slow and the restaurant was only half full, the burgers were very average, not tasty at all, chili was bland.. Waitress never came to check on us.. Would... More

The only good thing about this place on Friday was a charming new waitress who tried. The "famous" mocha malt was thin chocolate milk. No straw because the order for the "red straws" hadn't come in, but large straw is only necessary for a thick shake. The manager at cashier station was no help as he didn't so much as... More

American diner/family restaurant fare that is fair... Nothing terrible, nothing memorable... Wouldn't code to go there again but would if friends/colleagues decided to go. The staff were the bright spot... Mostly efficient and always friendly.

The food is very good and there are a lot of unique choices but I think it was the service that brought us back. The waitresses were always so friendly and outgoing. One night we even brought our own bottle of wine with us and they didn't charge us a corking fee, which was a first for us. My favorite... More

We stopped in for breakfast and everyone was very friendly. The food was good and the prices were better than I expected on the islands. We will definitely eat here again

Juicy burgers, crispy fries and a shake to die for- and I don't mean a hula. Fran pointed to the bright red and white diner just before the mall entrance. We loved the 50's decor and the wonderful model airplanes overhead, on posters and in photographs. There is even a Pan Am clipper print in the bathroom. For those born... More

We stopped in for lunch and it was dirty! Our waiter had on clothes that were so slopped on with grease and food that I was wondering how this place got such a good rating from other diners! The food was mediocre and had no imagination.

We came across Ruby's by chance while at the Kaʻahumanu Mall and looking for somewhere to have brunch. It is a good sized restaurant with a 1950's setting, nice atmosphere and cheerful efficient servers. The food was very good, the portions quite generous and the service was great. In fact the ladies couldn't finish their servings, so in the several... More
