We ate at Ruby's twice. Once was take out and once for sit down. Both breakfast. We ran in on a Saturday morning headed for the beach and grabbed the breakfast sliders. Hawaiian roll, split sausage, egg and cheese. Hard to mix that up. We got dies of fruit . The sliders we great although thrown together poorly. Second meal was breakfast Sunday. Half empty restaurant, four people in our party. We waited and got coffee. One cup appears to be it as they never came around again till we were finished. I had the huevos rancheros. Crispy flour tortillas with beans in the middle covered by two eggs and cheese. Eggs were cooked like rocks yet the minimal cheese was cold and unmelted. Sent it back. Wife had one of the scrambles and said it had a funny taste. We waited and waited for the check and finally went to the counter to have them draw the check and paid. When asked how everything was we said, very poor service. They smiled and said thanks for coming. Never even listened.

Pass.

My wife always looks for cinnamon swirl French toast when eating breakfast out. Rubys had it on their menu. She thought it was one of the best she has had. I had a breakfast burrito which was also very good. We will definitely return.

We took a run along the Pacific Coast Highway and stopped at Ruby's for breakfast as a treat. The selection is wide and traditionally American (pancakes, eggs, waffles, omelettes, you name it). As always service was impeccably friendly and never rushed.

Food quality is great and pretty good value for money too (most main breakfasts are under $10-$15).

We came again for lunch and were not disappointed with the burgers.

In the Summer they open up the top deck with views out to the ocean. Plenty of parking available if you fancy using it as a rest stop

Diner with okay food. Rooftop dining offers an ocean view. Service is friendly and efficient. Food is what you would expect from a diner. Reasonable prices especially considering it's location. Fries and drinks are refillable. Good for a quick meal after the beach.

We had a good American meal right on the pier in Huntington Beach. We had great service and great food! The prices were nice after being in Disneyland for a couple days!!
