This is a good place to grab a hamburger and a malt. It can be very busy so prepare for a lot of noise. The service is okay. There is an ice skating rink attached so you can always people watch.

Visited Ruby's for a family lunch and wasn't disappointed with service, food or atmosphere. Loved the big band music playing in the background. Great service people. Fast service and yummy roast turkey sandwiches. Fries and onion rings were terrific. Ice rink is just outside the restaurant but no one was skating while we were there as it was a school... More

I have eaten at Ruby's about five times. I like their food. It is like eating in a 1950's restaurant where you get your chocolate malt in a silver metal container and drink it with a straw. Their hamburgers and cheeseburgers are very good. Restaurant is next to an ice skating rink in the Palos Verdes Peninsula Mall. I like... More

I was an original Ruby's waitress on Balboa Pier, so I love the chance to eat at Ruby's. Their prices have increased to an uncomfortable height over the years, so my family and I only get to eat at Ruby's for special occasions. Fabulous food, thick shakes & malts, bright and open atmosphere, great for kids (gets loud), Big Band... More

Great place to go with kids. Near the ice skating rink. Lots of choices. Ice cream sodas are yummy. Nice kids selections. Good adult choices, too.

Ruby's Diner has been embedded in the mall (various names over the years) on Silver Spur near Hawthorne for many years. It is next to the Skating rink and affords a nice view of skaters at work .. a pleasant diversion while shopping the mall. The food and service are adequate for shoppers with kids. This is not, strictly speaking,... More

On a Friday afternoon, the number of customers greatly exceeded the ability of the wait staff to provide excellent service. During our 10 minute stay, we saw two different customers receive incorrect orders. Both times, the two different servers indicated that the cook got the order wrong. We suspect that the lack of a sufficient number of servers may be... More

Great place for kids - especially if you can get a seat overseeing the ice rink or where they can watch Tom and Jerry on the outside screen! Good turkey burgers, milkshakes etc. Fun and busy spot!!!
