“Casual Diner Atmosphere”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

Our group of 9 walked into Ruthies at about 10:45am on the first day of fly fishing season; they were very busy but we were able to sit down right away as there happened to be a large table open. The place had that "diner" feel to it. The food selection was typical breakfast fare: omelettes, sausage, eggs, potatoes, etc. Everything tasted good and was a good value.

“A Real Deal”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

One of the few authentic diners around these days. Have eaten breakfast there on several occasions. Tons of food at a reasonable price. The bacon came crisp as ordered and was very flavorful. The place was packed with locals, usually a good sign. Their dinner choices looked good also. Good "stick-to-your-ribs" food.

“Tapas ..just like Spain”
Reviewed October 20, 2012 via mobile

This intimate small 'tapas bar/restaurant' is owned/operated by a native Spaniard. Fairly new concept for Greensburg so the crowds are sporadic. I have lived in Spain and the 'comida' ..food.. Is as wonderful as in Valencia.

He is on target with quality..potatoes ..calamari..croquettes.. -all delicious! The half price sangria was tasty. The ambiance simple yet stated.

You can also rent for a private party.. But before. 6 pm.

It iIsn 't the place to go if you want a large quantity of food ... For $20. Suggest Applebee's.

“Yuck.”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

Old, dumpy, greasy (and not in a good way). Staff was nice, food and atmosphere were below average. Coffee tasted burned. I guess this was the local favorite once-upon-a-time...IMO those times have long passed.
