Does the job

This is a mid century diner with the typical menu and a few other items with a local angle. The food was fine and the service was attentive. A cute stop at the mall.

This is strictly a kids joint. The food is awful. I ordered a chicken sandwich which had no flavor. The fries were limp. The wait staff is very nice and there are plenty of them. If you want something that resembles real food eat somewhere else.

This restaurant is literally falling apart. The restrooms have always been disgusting. The floors are beyond disgusting and filthy. The booths have busted seats. The food is inconsistent and there's always an issue with your order, like cold fries, watery milkshakes, etc. The kitchen looks dingy and it smells like old grease. Yes, it passed 'inspection', which should be called... 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.!

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.

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, while we were seated right away, we... More

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
