The food was good however the service was slow and surly. It's a lookalike 50's diner so it is worth the experience. Prices were reasonable too...

This is always a fun retro place to grab a burger, fries, and a malt. The roast turkey sandwich is killer too. Kinda like having Thanksgiving dinner on the go.

Started off our Sunday with a breakfast at this classic spot. Cinnamon French toast is very rich but delicious. Great atmosphere for a slow start to the day.

You'll enjoy the burgers, fries, and milk shakes. The prices are low plus there's a great view of the Pacific Ocean.

My sweet grandson (age 17) want to "take me out to dinner" at one of his favorite places. He gave me the choice of Cheesecake Factory or Ruby's Diner and I immediately chose the later.

Had breakfast here while staying in a hotel across the street. Wait staff was pleasant; food was adequate for the price. Would come again.

My new favourite place to eat! I ate there 3 times in a week while in Cali and once in an airport. Great service, cute decor and uniforms and the food was great! All at average prices. Sadly I did not try there shakes but I heard they're very yummy.

We ate breakfast at this Ruby's Diner and had a wonderful experience. The food was very good, the restaurant was fun, including vintage retro furnishings, and located right next to the coast. There was plenty of parking ($1 with validation) and easy access. And the beignets were awesome!

Thank marycarol3
