“Great Burgers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Ruby's Diner is a great place to have lunch if it's your first time visiting Oceanside. Located at the end of the famous Oceanside pier, Ruby’s is casual and nostalgic with a great burger menu. It's a good place to enjoy a burger and beer while admiring the beautiful Pacific Ocean.

“Cute Retro Diner . . . . GREAT Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

Adorable diner at the end of Oceanside pier
Enjoyed a delicious Crunch Bar Milkshake and DELUXE B-L-T-A what it sounds like but with
fresh avocado slices on grilled Parmesan sourdough like some kind of yummy garlic bread hybrid
Also saw dolphins jumping while eating lunch.

What more could you ask for ?!?!

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

Longer wait at peak times on summer weekends but a good place to eat with kids. Food and milkshakes are great and it completes the walk on the pier. Fun activity with the family to combine the walk and lunch.
