We eat at Ruby's every time we stay in Eminence - breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The prices are so low they're unbelievable. Service is always fast and friendly. It is the same place that TripAdvisor lists as Ruby's Family Restaurant - 408 South Main St is the correct address (the other listed address is in error.

My husband and I were visiting. We enjoyed a crack-of-dawn breakfast at Ruby's, including ham and eggs. Both of us usually watch our cholesterol and calories, but we couldn't do that at Ruby's. Oh, well. We can let our diets slip now and then.

When you think of the classic midwest American breakfast, you think about it being served in a historic downtown building like Ruby's. I ordered the standard sausage, eggs, hasbrownsx toast, coffee with an extra side of biscuits and gravy and somehow made it through the whole thing - very satisfied. Prices were quite reasonable too and coffee was refilled fairly... More

The restaurant is great to eat. Buffets are available at various times. We ate dinner and also a breakfast. Great selections and they replenish it often. Not a lot of seating available, especially for large groups.

My brother and I dropped in for a late lunch. The staff was happy to accommodate my special diet and they even cooked my brother catfish fillets that weren't on that particular menu. Very kind staff and good food.

We stopped in around 10am and was able to get breakfast. The portions were large and the food was good old country. It's not anything fancy, but good service and food. We will eat here again next time we are in the area.

The atmosphere is basic, small town eatery, but very clean. We visited the Sunday morning breakfast buffet. The place was packed and we had to wait...a good sign? The offerings, to my memory, were: biscuits, gravy (milk, no meat), pancakes (I think), scrambled eggs, sausage patties, mini chicken fried steaks, bacon. Im sure I missed something, but the offerings were... More

There are not many places to eat in this town. Ruby's was average, pretty much the same rating as all the other places to eat in Eminence.
