Good food...they have salads but with fries, onion rings, tasty turkey and regular hamburger may be hard to eat healthy. Also have several shapes and dessert choices. This Ruby's overlooks the manmade lake in the park in Irvine.

While our patio table for 10 and for a three-person birthday lunch started nice with it being ready and waiting for us at noon, it went downhill from there. I ordered a burger dry, sauce on the side and cajun fries to share with my...More

We have been going to Ruby's overlooking the Woodbridge Lake for 30 years. Always a great place to bring back the 50s malt shop feel. The food is always good. You can't beat the classic ruby burger and fries. We prefer to substitute the turkey...More

You can't beat the quality of the burgers at Ruby's. Also love that they will cook the meat medium rare on request. Fries are super and shakes thick, creamy and generous. Can't go wrong here.

Not as good as use to be, food okay service okay no one is in hurry to get anything done. As shops in center have gone out the business has to. As far as rating against other Ruby's it's at the bottom.

Ruby's Diner has a lot of OC locations around water. This one has a relaxing vibe with a view of the lake. Service is kind and efficient. Large parties can bring the noise level very high. We like to avoid main dining times, it is...More
