“Gotta love it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Awesome burgers, killer view, and happy staff - oh, and let's not forget the fries and shakes. Old fashioned heart-attack food with a 50s spirit and plenty of happpy vibe.

“old style service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

This was a great place to visit. Right on the end of the pier, we had burgers, as usual, and shakes. A great trip back to the 50's in a bustling diner.

“Burgers, shakes, and Dolphins!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

Refillable fries, a great selection of burgers, and a beautiful view, (especially from upstairs) make this place a worthwhile visit. I have seen dolphins at least two-thirds of the time I visit this place, so keep an eye out for them, frolicking in the ocean. :)

“Just like stepping back to the 50's & 60's.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

If you're ever visiting Huntington Beach, Rubys is a must to get a meal. Just like being in a scene out of "Happy Days" that has background music from that era. The walls are lined with record albums from "The Beach Boys" and "Jan & Dean" while having a great view of the Pacific Ocean. They have a good menu to choose from (I ordered a salad) and the service was great. As a tourist, I really felt like I was in America.

“The best milkshake ever!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Great place for a good authentic milkshake. Try the strawberry - banana, really yummie.
Food is also great.
Typical old diner design and view of the ocean
