We hiked about 10 miles in the park, and got back to Ruby's Inn about 8pm. The buffet was perfect for us. Very casual environment, quick service and decent food for the price.

By the time we decided on Ruby's Inn we were starving. There was quite a wait but it did not matter because we were eating there regardless. The food was delicious. There was a ginormous variety and the staff was nice.

don't do it. Go to the store and buy some food instead. Ruby's has created a whole town, meeting most needs. This was the only restaurant open in town and it was grim. Low budget buffet-style food at mid-range prices

We found out from the gas station across the street that there were no places to eat in Bryce National Park (in early March) and that this place (Ruby's) was basically our only option. So we stopped in for lunch. It is a dining room where you wait to be seated and we were happy to be out and stretching... More

They have a monopoly over the area, food is cheap - as in poor, carpets are dirty, just generally dirty and miserable in there. Wait staff were all lovely, they just have scabby bosses who apparently fire them in the low season, when probably there is no need because the place has a monopoly and makes lots of money during...

My husband and I had the buffet the second night- it was just average as well. My 13 year old son had the Tavern Shrimp dinner and was... More

Stopped in mid-afternoon, so maybe that is why the food was 'meh'. This is about the only place to eat off-season. Choose somewhere else if possible.

We did not look at the Buffet since we prefer to order fresh cooked food. We had the Flat Iron Steaks, which were surprisingly juicy. It came with mashed potatoes and vegetables. Our daughter ordered the Veggie Spaghetti and they were very good as well and not smothered in sauce or overcooked. The next day we ordered sandwiches to go,... More

Food at Rubys is perfect to end a day of hiking. As I was there in the quiet season (January) the actual buffet was not operating however they did have a soup and salad bar and an a la carte menu. Good amount of choices (pasta, chicken, ribs, steak) all fine and tasty and quick service.
