“It was ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2012

First time to anyt Ruby Tuesday. Service was ok. Food was ok. Nothing spectacular. My boyfriend had the lobster mac and cheese or something like that and while he said it was good was very small portion for the price. I had some chicken thing. It was just ok. We probably won't be back . There are better places in town for the price.

“A definite waste of time and money!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2011

If you are looking for service and satisfaction, do not go to this restaurant! We were seated in a booth with one side facing directly into the sun. The hostess had left before we could ask to be moved. I sat in the sun for quite a long time hoping to be moved to a more comfortable location--plenty of empty booths still open which were not in the sun. Waitress never came within 15 minutes, so we switched to a different booth with no sun. When waitress finally came, she did not notice that we had moved. She took our order for drinks which was only water. Another 15 minutes passed and got the water and waitress took our order. Every other Ruby Tues serves biscuits to eat while you are waiting on the food order, but not here--no biscuits until the order came 20 minutes later and then no apologies whatsoever for the long, long wait time! Lots of empty booths and tables during our visit, so they were not overly busy. The biscuit plate was served to us with 2 biscuits and a small piece of another one--looked like someone had eaten most of it and left a bite remaining on the plate. Very unappetizing!! By that time, we had decided to never return to this restaurant. Do not go to this place if you are hungry and expect decent service.
