Felt like we were invisible at first

This was a repeat visit and we got different results this time. The 1st time, we were seated right away and gave our drink and food orders pretty quickly. We also received our orders relatively quickly even though a couple of us ordered burgers and it was still breakfast time. This last visit... read more

How do you make a bad and boring hamburger? They know. How do you make an excellent Shake? They know. Service was good but the place is a tad run down.!

Using local fishermen, the ahi fish burger was excellent!! They also have breakfast and veggie burgers for the vegetarian wishes.

Service a little spotty. Order a lemon flavored coke and the wait staff first stated that they didn't have it, but they did. Ordered fish tacos, was told they had no fish, ordered shrimp tacos, told no shrimp. Turns out they had the fish.

We have dined at Ruby's for years and we have always been satisfied with the quality of the food and the friendly service (especially Mariah). The burgers are very good with a fine selection of options. The old menu also included some great comfort food items such as roast turkey, turkey pot pie, pot roast, sliders, and a wide variety...

Best Turkey burgers that I have ever eaten. Wait staff was amazing. Set us quickly and refilled drinks before they were empty. Great family fun!

After flying into Maui, we needed breakfast. In the Queen Kahumanu Center (the mall), we had two breakfast choices, the Koho Bar and Grill and Ruby's Diner. I fear we made the wrong choice. The place wasn't busy. Two servers, we got the wrong one. He was very nice, but inattentive and slow. I wanted rye toast, got wheat. About... More

My kids enjoyed this place because the staff was nice and the atmosphere was pleasant. The food was only 'okay'. My kid that had the burger liked it. I had tried a dish that was not too good and when I told the server she promptly allowed me to select something else. The sandwiches are decent, but the chicken strips... More

Two words: just go. We walked off the boat and across the street and there was Ruby's Diner at the mall. Good choice.

We've been here before on earlier visits to Maui and I was looking forward to it. Our server (Josiah) was good, but the rest, not so much. I saw a number of people waiting to be seated for a long time and although there appeared to be management in the restaurant, they were not taken care of. My wife had... More
