“Expensive & Not That Good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

Ruby Tuesday has a very good salad bar due to the variety (choice of greens, potato salad, macaroni salad, real bacon bits, excellent croutons) beyond that and the very nice interior, they don't do anything particularly well. A very large and diverse menu, even the abbreviated lunch version. You'll likely get better BBQ at a BBQ place. better steaks at a steak place and better seafood at a seafood place. On this visit, I got a small I/2 rack of BBQ ribs, tender and decent but too much sweet sauce for my tastes. My partner got soup & salad bar only which she said was OK but not great. The coffee we got was very good as was our server. Our two simple lunches were over $30.00 not including tip or desert.

“Never disappointed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

As always we were not disappointed with anything that Ruby Tuesdays had to offer. The salad bar was great and the server was wonderful!

“Delicious Salad Bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

When I'm in the mood for salad, there is no better place to go in Athens that Ruby Tuesday. They have the best salad bar in town! Four types of greens, all the regular veggies and many of the forgotten ones, REAL and FRESH crumbled bacon, tasty croutons, parmesan and many dressings. I love it. I also had their Sweet Potato Fries (yum!) and the Chicken Tortilla Soup (average). As usual, the service is good.

“This Ruby Tuesday needs help!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I ate at this Ruby Tuesday tonight. I have eaten at many of these in different states. They are always very clean. Wait staff very good and prompt. Our waitress was ok. Meal took quite a while to come. We always enjoy the salad bar. This salad bar was horrible. First of all the iceberg lettuce was awful. You know what bag salad looks like when it is old--it gets slimmy and limp. That is what it was like. The guy came to replenish the lettuce. Instead of removing the old lettuce before putting out new, he just poured in more with the slimy lettuce on the bottom. Many of the other items were almost empty and it was very messy. Manager your salad bar needs Help!!

Very disappointed in our visit. It was a waste of money. Won't be going back there!
