good breakfast

went here for a late breakfast, had eggs benedict, food was hot and flavorful, I think about $12 , which is the norm for Maui. Its at the Queen mall, and is a welcome change from the food court there.

We are regular visitors to Maui and up until this last time we had always enjoyed eating at Ruby's. They were closed for renovations earlier in 2014 and when we tried them in Nov.14 we were very disappointed. Easily the worst meal we had on that trip. The atmosphere is funky though and it is perhaps the only sit down... More

We always stop at Ruby's for a burger before flying out. This time we tried breakfast. Not so good. We ordered eggs fried medium (where the white is cooked and the yolk is runny). Both sets were hard. Maybe just an off day. Still love their burgers

I've long been a huge fan of Ruby's, been going there for years, in particular for breakfast and some lunches...as often as 3 times a week (yeah I eat out alot, every day for the most part)... last year about midway through, Kirk, the long time managing partner left, and the place immediately went downhill, in particular on the service...

We were looking for a late lunch and found Ruby's. I had the Cobb Salad and my wife the Roasted Turkey sandwich. The Cobb was excellent - as good as any in a more upscale restaurant. Real bacon and generous portions of all the normal Cobb ingredients. The roasted turkey was actual thick slices of turkey breast. NOT lunch meat... More

Four of us went here for dinner while waiting for someone in a store to come back from a break. We weren't expecting much because none of us felt like a burger. The waitress, Caroline, was very personable & told us what their best items were. She recommended the Turkey Pot Pie, & it was excellent, full of white meat... More

We ate here for lunch and the place was filthy. Our server was polite but his shirt was dirty and the whole place had a run down feel to it. We had burgers and the food was so-so. I saw the glowing rating on Trip Advisor but was greatly disappointed with this place. I wouldn't recommend you waste your time... More

Second time eating here. Good burgers and excellent fries and shakes, The service was a little slow even though they weren't really busy at the time. Bathroom was pretty gross and the floors need some attention. But the food is exactly what you'd expect from a diner.

Awesome place to eat for breakfast, lunch,dinner. The restaurants decor is like the old diner days ( without the roller skates). It's awesome. The food and the people that work there are fabulous.

We were killing time waiting for our flight so we drove over to the mall in Kakului to find a place to have dinner. We picked Ruby's Diner. There was another restaurant near it but we picked Ruby's. It was very average much like a Denny's. The service was good but the place looked a little run down and not... More
