“Excellent Server”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

We enjoyed our dinner at Ruby Tuesday after spending the day at Sea World. Convenient to Sea World, cheaper and better than amusement park food. Great place to relax after a busy day in the parks.

“Decent food, slowwww service”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

I have been to this restaurant 3 times and out of the 3 visits, 2 have been atrocious experiences.

I don't have many complaints about the food. In fact, the asian dumplings are one of my favorite appetizers. The steaks and chicken are pretty good but the portions could be better. The 2 different type of steak and shrimp combos I've had only come with 3 shrimp...woop dee doo. The cottage cheese was taken off of the salad bar and that was my favorite part.

The service is what brings this place down. None of the hostesses are at all friendly and the slowness of the servers and kitchen are pitiful. We waited a good 30 minutes for our food after ordering and they didn't bring mine out until 15 minutes later. My family was done eating before I even got mine. All visits from our server were staggered between more uncomfortably long waits.

So I'm done with this Ruby Tuesday. Id much rather eat at the food court.

Reviewed November 2, 2012

We went to this place for lunch while shopping at the Florida Mall. Great spot to eat. The menu choice is fantastic, great deals on the lunch menu, waiter was very attentive (can't remember his name) and the prices very reasonable, see you guys next year.

“Not up to usual RT standard..”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

We sat at the bar, as we usually do at this chain. The young gal was lackluster in personality as well as knowledge and serving abilities. The place was dirty. The floor was sticky in front of the salad bar; tables sat with used dishes piled on them. The food itself when it came was fine altho' no garnishes on plate so food looked bare/not appealing but tasted ok.
Their free cheese biscuits had to be asked for. Was then told nonchalantly they were being baked. We got one plate with 2 very small biscuits for the 2 of us after we had finished our dinner.

This place really doesn't care whether anyone returns or not...and the employees don't seem to want to be there either.

“Surprisingly good!”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

I have been to Ruby Tuesday's several times. A couple of times to the one on Kirkman Rd and another couple of times to the one on South Orange Blossom Trail.

The Kirkman's Ruby is better-looking outside and inside. The OBT's Kirkman is surrounded by average business like Chick Fil-a, Steak'n'Shake, a T-Mobile store and a Pawn shop. All this at a Home Depot plaza. Not the best place for a restaurant experience, but I digress.

What's surprisingly good about Ruby Tuesday's is that they have tastier pasta than Olive Garden! Take that Italian-fare franchise! The other great thing is that their signature non-alcoholic drinks such as the mint-watermelon juice and the fruit-cocktail juice are re-fillable. That's right! You can drink them to your heart's content. What other franchise gives you refill on something other than coffee and soda?

I have never tried their salad bar because I'm mainly carnivorous, but their pasta is very good and their burgers are good enough.

Service-wise, they are adequate to mediocre. The demeanor of the waitresses has been lacking the last couple of times. They either look bored or otherwise pre-occupied or unfocused. They are not mean, just not at the same level than most other restaurants where they at least pretend to like their jobs.

Also, there's no utensils or napkins or ketchup on the tables. They bring them to you when they serve you. Weird.

However, as I said, their pastas and drinks are good. Give TGI Friday's and other franchises a rest, and pay a visit to a local Ruby Tuesday's.

Oh, and the complimentary biscuits are delicious!
