“Diner food at it's best”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012 via mobile

Homecooked fare at 1970's prices. Soups, especially the bean and chicken.. are as good as my mom's. The desserts are to die for. Fish sandwich really tasty and the best breakfast for the $$.

Service terrific ...

Atmosphere a bit dated but that's what makes it a 'must stop' when passing thru Ligonier.

“Diner/ Comfort food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

We stopped here on our way to Frank Lloyd Wight's Falling Water home. There were 4 of us 2 adults & 2 boys. It was 10:30 in the morning I had had small breakfast at hotel so I ordered the Clam chowder was good, my son ordered the new York steak breakfast 8oz steak 3 scrambled eggs 2 pieces of toast, and 2 big squares of hash browns cost 7.95. Mt friends son did cup of chowder, and my friend ordered the roast beef dinner huge portion came with salad, bread, mashed potatoes, vegetable, and home made bread. The 4 of us got out of there for $30. Not a fancy place the food was good and staff very pleasant. But it is CASH only.

“One of the local favorites”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

This place has been around for a long time. It is good for a cheap breakfast. The lunches and dinners are ok. Prices are more than fair. This seems to be a place the older generation likes the most. This place is also cash only. I eat here a few time a month...breakfsat only.

“Great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

Ruthies is a great little diner type restaurant with yummy comfort food. With very cheap prices and good service, this little place is a nice spot to stop for brunch or for a meal after a fun day of swimming at Ligonier Beach. One thing you do need to be aware of is that Ruthies is CASH ONLY!!!! So take a twenty or two when you go with the family or some fives if you're alone.

“Great Local Diner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

The food, portions, and prices are great. The waitress was more than helpful and fast. I will definately go back. The restaurant itself is "just" a diner but a great place to stop while visiting the Laurel Highlands..
