“not a good choice”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2012

I haven't been here in about a year, so after seeing the new commercials about the new menu items, I thought we should give it a try. Big mistake. Our waitress was Catherine and I have the feeling she is new.
My grandson ordered a New Orleans fish and Shrimp with parmesan cheese. for the first time ever, he sent his food back. The cheese was congealed and hard covering his fish. He ordered Sweet potato fries and broccoli also. The server took it back and returned so quickly. Apparently they scrapped they cheese off, added new cheese and sent it back. The fries were now lukewarm, the broccoli cold. Looking closer at the broccoli, it seemed that is was old also.
He took a bite of fish and said it tasted like dirt...Oh no, poor kid.
I made a remark about the light fixture hanging over our table and there was so much dust on it. Who wants to eat in an establishment that doesn't even clean the dusty lights that hang over the tables and probably the dust falls into the food.
Seriously, we will not go back. With all the other restaurants int he area, stay away from this one. Terrible food, poor food and a big F on cleanliness..

“Good Dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2012

We have not gone back since they have revamped a little their menu. I had the regular sirloin and my wife had the petite sirloin ($2 less). It was done medium perfectly. The weird thing was it appeared that my wife's steak was larger than mine? So I would recommend just go with the Petite and use the $2 for something else on the menu. In all fairness, they did not give the sizes in the menu. The salad bar was yummy. The croutons they had were just baked were great. They had a good selection of goodies to put on top of the salad. They have a broccoli salad that was great. If you haven't tried the chain recently, you may want to visit and give them another chance. Service was good, although we did have to wait awhile for our credit card to be taken and processed.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2012

Ruby Tuesday's in New York used to be great, then went downhill so was skeptical about trying the one in Florida, but what a pleasant surprise. The salad bar was delicious, the little rolls are so good they could be dessert, the food was very good and the service impeccable. Moderately priced wine.
