“The Shakes are Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2010

My husband and I visited Ruby’s on three separate occasions during our time in Maui. It is close to the airport and has pretty decent prices. Ruby's has a 50’s diner atmosphere and the waiters wear uniforms from that era. We ate both breakfast and dinner at Ruby’s and enjoyed every meal we had there. We especially LOVED their milkshakes. During our visits to Ruby’s we tried the strawberry milkshake and the Oreo cookie milkshake and both were fabulous – two of the best milkshakes I have ever had. They are definitely big enough to share! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Maui who wants a causal atmosphere with affordable prices.

“We went to Ruby's because it was within...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2010

We went to Ruby's because it was within walking distance of our hotel. The waitresses were all very nice. Service was quick. The food was good-- we had a burger and the BBQ kalua pig sandwich. It's cheap by Hawaii standards. Most of the burgers were $7-$10 plus $2.50 for fries.

Overall, if you're staying near the airport and need somewhere to eat, I'd definitely recommend Ruby's.

“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2010

I'm not one for big fancy restaurants, so Ruby's was perfect for me. Great food and outstanding service at a decent price. If your looking for a great burger, this is the place for you.

“Filling breakfast and cute atmosphere for $10”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2010

We walked to this diner from our hotel. At first, we only saw the Starbucks nearby and were happy to find Ruby's. We had filling breakfasts for about $10 each (I had cinnamon roll French toast, bacon, and an English muffin). The 50s atmosphere was fun and the service was friendly. We liked it so much, we went back the next morning.

“Nostalgia anyone?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2010

Beside the servers' uniform, everything else is...predictable. Straight American menu reminescent of my first date when I was a teenager. Don't tell your doctor about your menu choices....
