One of the most beautiful location for a resturant...what is better than at the end of an ocean side pier. Large portions and really great food.. what do you have to lose other than a beautiful walk along a beautiful pier with the ocean breezes...More

Ruby's is a 50's style diner, they even serve the milk shake with the metal container. The food is very good but the view, especially from the upper patio, is spectacular. It's at the end of the pier so easy to find.

Found Ruby’s as we wandered down the coast from LA to San Diego. Enjoyed a leisurely walk out the pier to find this gorgeous little diner at the end of the pier - great atmosphere, great views and great food. Loved it!

The draw here is mostly about the location at the end of the pier for an ocean view setting. I do really enjoy the cinnamon roll French toast which is quite good. The menu is coffee shop type - burger, fries, club sandwich, breakfast.

We walked to the end of the pier just to eat here and were not disappointed. The food was good, but the view was even better.

Food is really good here. Also, their milk shakes are creamy and full of flavor. Restaurant has a very nice view to the sea because it’s located at the end of the pier:)

Very good breakfast menu, with many choices, fair prices and plenty to eat. Service was friendly but a little slow considering they were not too busy.

Nice spot with great views conveniently located at end of pier. Has diner look and feel. Burger was delish and so was the club. Generous portions. A variety of flavours available for your fries. Milkshakes are to die for. Very clean and very friendly service
