Reviewed September 3, 2013

The service was okay, the restaurant was clean, but the food was barely up to par. The seafood trio had a burnt crab "pancake", underdone lobster tail, and the shrimp had almost no flavour. The cajun tilapia tasted like it was poached in water. The best dish was that of pasta...but it's hard to ruin that. The server brought out another crab cake, but it was far too salty to be considered edible. That being said, the manager did not charge us for our 2 glasses of wine. There were others in close proximity who were returning their meals as well. Not sure if it was an off-night for this Ruby Tuesday, but we won't go back there when next in Traverse City.

My son always orders the salad bar and this time, it was practically empty. There weren't even plates. People waited 5 minutes for plates to be brought out...and they were nasty filthy. Caked with food. I took off 8 plates before I found a clean one for my son to use.

We ordered two waters and a Coke which we had to ask our server for because she forgot the first time.

They were out of Salmon due to a "National Salmon Shortage". Really?

This will be our last visit to this restaurant.

My family had a very nice meal at this location. We were there after the evening rush, the restaurant was clean and the staff was friendly. Our orders were correct and we did not have a long wait. Perfect!

Hey, this is a chain - been to one, been to 'em all. But at Ruby Tuesday you know what you will get - fresh food, a good salad bar, decent entrees, and a good beer menu. The Traverse City RT did not disappoint. A good option for a traveling family with adults that want something more substantial than fast food.
