Ruby Tuesday is a convenient restaurant particularly for their Salad Bar. It can make lunch a quick experience. Off the menu, however, most items are just average. Service is OK, but when we were there recently the serving staff seemed unorganized or perhaps distracted. The restaurant was only 1/3rd full so not sure what was going on.

I go mostly for the salad bar which is my favorite. Their entrees are so-so, but the prices are a little high I think.

I have never had a bad meal at Ruby Tuesdays. The staff is always excellent though I would like to see the manager go around and talk with patrons about their food choices.

Near ETSU, Mountain Home VAMC, and Quillen College of Medicine, Ruby Tuesday's serves up its standards. Better than the average chain restaurant, RT does a nice job with its recipes and salad bar. The service is friendly and food comes quickly.

My husband took me to Ruby Tuesdays for an early birthday celebration. I was so very disappointed in my meal. I would not recommend our Ruby Tuesday location. Salad bar is so very over priced. We had salad bar and hamburgers. Spent way more than I wanted to for a meal. Will not be making a return trip.

I love Ruby Tuesday's. They have a chicken dish that is to die for with fresh tomatoes on it. Their brussel sprouts are the best I have ever eaten out. They keep the same menu for a while and I like that. I am tired of finding something I like at other restaurants and all of a sudden, it disappears... More

I have been to this location several times, and it is a great chain restaurant! The dining areas are clean, and the wait-staff is pleasant. I have never had a bad dining experience here. They tend to be less crowded than some of the other restaurants, so it is a good option if you are deciding last-minute. Their menu is... More

sub par chain food and service. No frills here but you won't leave hungry or thirsty. Service is good and place is clean.

R T used to be a great place to eat. They had lots of different food in great quantities. They now have some kind of over-priced, new age, thaw and serve type junk. Never again.
