The food here is so delicious, I have too many favorites here to pick just one. Our family has been eating here for many years, and will continue to eat here.

Quality food at a reasonable price. Portions are average size. The menu has a variety of breakfast lunch and dinner options to choose from. Food is always delicious! Great place for families and large groups to come and have a delicious meal together!

Stopped here while on a Michigan cross state road trip with a group of 11. Picked it based on reviews. Glad we chose J J Ruby's. Quaint, friendly and clean family restaurant with good food. The flat iron steak special was delicious.

We were pleasantly surprised by this country restaurant. In a small town with small town friendliness. My husband and I both ordered the Sunday chicken dinner. It came pan fried. A homemade dressing came with it and it was very good. Very good food. It's not a fancy place but a very good place to eat. Very friendly, efficient staff.... More

The food is good, and service great. A lot of locals eat here in the evenings. While I don't like it, their liver and onions are famous. I prefer their fish. Portions are big so my wife and I do share if we're not real hungry.

I have tried this restaurant on several occasions. The food is fine, but not anything to write home about. Prices seem a bit high for what you get.

Best Food in town, especially breakfast. Staff was great. A couple miles down the road from where we stayed. Way better than anything on the "Walmart" side of town.

This was my first visit to JJ Ruby's--the menu is diverse, you can have as healthy as you like or something more decadent like I chose--the Philly Cheese steak sandwich. It came with a very delicious dish of cole slaw (sweet, just the way I like it), and a large portion of the best fries I have eaten in a... More
