Ruby Tuesday

We decided to eat here at the end of our trip. I wish we had waited to eat at home. We arrived at 4:00pm, well before the "dinner rush". We were seated in the bar, next to the kitchen door. There were plenty of open tables in the dining room. We ordered Shrimp dinners with the salad bar. When we went to the salad bar, there wasn't any lettuce, tomatoes, mushrooms, and our desired salad dressing. The hostess was too busy talking with the waitresses to notice, but did notify the kitchen the salad bar needed attention after other customers complained.

Our main entree was over cooked, and some type of butter flavored oil was servced with the grilled shrimp instead of butter.

There are plenty of other places to eat in Boone, NC, and we will be giving them a try before returning here.

Salad bar was small. Menu items were limited. Taste was just ok. Overpriced.

We were visiting Boone back in March and staying at the Holiday Inn. We have a very large family ranging from 32 to 20 years old and grand kids. Since we all couldn't travel together everyone was coming in at different times. We chose Ruby Tuesdays as our meeting place. Some of the family got there very late but the management was very helpful in keeping the kitchen open to insure that everyone got feed!

The food and service was excellent! We highly recommend and be sure that you have Brenda make you a special drink from the bar!

Not a bad place and since Boone is a tourist town, chain restaurants seem to do well here. I personally prefer the independent restaurants in the area but, if you are looking for predictable food and fair prices, this place is fine.

Service, like everywhere else in Boone, can be hit or miss here. Most Boone restaurants depend on the University for their work force - most of these youngsters are great kids, but they don't always have experience and you sometimes have to be a little patient with them. Waiting for a drink refill or for your check can sometimes be frustrating but overall, it's not a bad place.
I would have to say that the manager here is usually circulating in the dining room, checking on tables and putting forth a good effort to keep his customers happy!

Seated next to linen closet at back wall even though restaurant was nearly empty. Constant traffic in & out of closet, which was locked and manager had to unlock each and every time, which was very distracting. Food was so-so and had to ask for refills and condiments.

The waitress who brought our food was so upset I asked for more ketchup she gave me a dirty look, went to the kitchen, came back and literally threw a small metal cup of ketchup on the table and walked away without a word.

Until this location does some work and lets their employees know who pays their paycheck, avoid it at all costs!
