Got drunk on the board walk and needed food for my belly. We ate hear. Burger and chili fries. Everything tasted great and we had great service. Good old fashion American greasy spoon diner styled food.

After a long day of tours, we were exhausted and wanted a quick meal. Ruby's was the perfect choice. The burgers, fries and milkshakes are worth the visit. Our bill was higher than normal for burgers; however, given the location the prices are decent. Our waitress was funny and very attentive.

Picked up burgers to go, they were awesome!! We shared fries and onion rings - a bit expensive but worth every dime!

I had never been to a Ruby's Diner, I loved the 1940's atmosphere. The vegetarian breakfast options were wonderful, the price was right, and the service was perfect.

Big juicy burgers, Salads, Chowder, Tacos, Sandwhiches all round diner. Generous portions, if you can't find something on the extensive menu to suit then give up.

Located right down the street from the beach it has a classy home feeling to it. If you ever wanted just some fries and a shake at the beach this is most deff the location you should check out. Give it a chance and see how it is

Nothing wrong with anything here. Standard burgers, fries and shakes. Super clean and staff were excellent, great location on the wharf. It's only average as it's hard to get excited about such a standard kind of set up. Kids will probably love it as they have fish moving around on the ceiling.

Ruby's Diner serves all of the classic American food that you expect, however they do have some new and unique menu items, such as the beignets. They are extremely delicious, and one of the best parts of my meal. I would definitely recommend that you order them if you go to this restaurant.

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...
