“Oldies but Goodies”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

Ruby's Diner was a classic 50's look diner. The food was excellant and the portions were quite sufficient. The staff was friendly and courteous and the food came in a timely manner. I would definately recommend this for anyone.

“Easy Breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013

Breakfast rumblings on a one day cruise call in Kahului? Ruby’s is located on the very edge of the one of the larger malls off the main drag down from the cruise ship berth and an ideal breakfast spot for a quick bite to eat with the minimum of fuss. At Ruby’s be prepared for the “All American Charm” by the bucket load, staff greet you as you walk in and I was shown to a table drinks order taken and had a menu in hand within a couple of minutes. The diner is decorated in a 40’s style with model planes hung from the ceiling, booths and tables are clean and the atmosphere is fun, I would expect a great place to take children and there were plenty when I visited mid morning! A full menu is available for each meal time, with breakfast in mind I ordered the cinnamon roll French toast combo, which comes with whipped butter, two jumbo eggs and your choice of breakfast meat (in this case crispy bacon) and a bottomless coffee. My portion was manageable however some of the dishes coming from the kitchen looked huge, good value for money considering the prices. Even the house blend coffee is easy drinking, and not bitter at all. Needless to say I was suitably full by the time I finished! Staff were pleasant and attentive without being over familiar and seemed happy to leave me to my book and breakfast – a real treat and definitely worth a visit.

“Casual and Easy!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013

We spotted Ruby's by accident while visiting the mall that it's located in (very nice mall!). Clean and fun atmosphere with it's 1940's styling. The kids will like all the model airplanes hanging around the restaurant and the old fashioned phone outside the restrooms. Food was good - not the best in the world but certainly nothing to complain about. Typical fare for the sort of place it is - don't expect gourmet, just diner meals. Very clean, courteous and attentive waitress, fast on food prep. Definitely would visit again, especially with kids!

“Don't miss this”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013 via mobile

We've eaten breakfast and lunch here. Both were delicious and reasonably priced. Great place to go for lunch after the Maui Swap Meet on Saturday. I had the guacamole burger low carb style. The burger was 1/3 pound, guacamole was creamy and delicious and the large leaves of lettuce made it surprisingly easy to eat. We're thinking of going back to try dinner. Be sure to use the 20% off coupon found in the weekly coupon books.
