“Good food great view”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

Food is standard Ruby's food but the view is great. The turkey sandwiches are real carved turkey, not lunch meat. Shakes are delicious too.

“Good things come to those who wait”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

Coming from the Midwest, we don't have the Ruby's chain, but we ate at one at Houston airport, and then at this Shake Shack, but the milkshakes, fries and burgers were very good. My advice for this busy place, is to wait for it....wait for it....and chill. IF you are making this a destination as we did, then just chill on the side of the entrance way, and wait for someone to leave, in about five minutes, we had a parking spot. Since it is basically fast food, people moved through the parking lot and tables with a view fairly quickly. I am glad we went.

“Great burger and shake with an amazing view”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

This is a little place next to Crystal Cove State Park in Newport Beach on the PCH. Great burger and great shakes with fast, friendly service. The view of the ocean from the restaurant (the outdoor porch) is amazing. Parking is limited and prices are a bit high for a burger and shake but well worth it. I would definitely recommend this place if in the area.

“Shakes were good, but overpriced...paying for view.”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

We stumbled upon this place after dinner one night and the crowd/hole-in-the-wall atmosphere and the view made us do a U-turn. Like I say in my title....the shakes were really good, but nothing special (I hear the hamburgers are REALLY good), the view was amazing....but I thought the shakes were overpriced. We paid $5 for a medium shake.....

“Great food, great view!!”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

We stopped here around 10:30 and were able to get anything on the menu (lunch or breakfast) My daughter got an excellent turkey club, with real sliced turkey, not just lunch meat. My easy over eggs, toast, bacon and fried potatoes were excellent. The milk shakes were very good. The staff is super fast and extremely friendly. They take all major credit cards. The best thing about this place is the seating overlooking the beautiful Crystal Cove! We very much enjoyed our stop at the Shake Shack!
