We stopped at a nearby hotel and the desk clerk recommended Ruby River. This restaurant was just like the Texas Roadhouse chain. The food was good, portions large and the wait staff was very attentive. They had peanuts in the waiting area (like Texas Roadhouse),...More

Had a great meal here 2 years ago. This was no different. Steaks were superb & service from Conner was excellent. Had the crusted baked potato with my sirloin steak & could almost have made a meal from that alone. My wife said her New...More

I would recommend getting a reservation, especially on weekends. The dinner line can be very long and there is not a large waiting area. The food is very good, the service is good, but I found the place to be very dark inside. Better lighting...More

We eat here regularly and every time it's amazing. Today we had an amazing waitress that helped make my little girl so happy with a special milkshake. The service there is always amazing and the food never disappoints.

Judged by any standard, the steaks here are of the finest quality and expertly cooked. They are available in more sizes than is usual, meaning that a person who wants, say, an 8oz steak can easily get that. My jacket potato was fantastic and the...More

Visited this restaurant on my last night in Provo and I wish I had eaten here a few more times! Great menu selection and the top sirloin was delicious...I could have made a meal of the jacketed yam and a salad alone.
