We toured the Yuengling Brewery, then went to Ruby's for lunch. What a great find! We went based on the reviews we saw in TripAdvisor. The food was wonderful, the teamwork on display as they prepared our food was great to watch, and Ruby is a delight. We had the Reuben and the steak sandwich with chili. Both were very... More

My absolute favorite place for lunch. The food is always delicious and the service is with a smile. It is perched on a high point with minimal parking but don't be deterred, make Ruby's a destination you don't miss. My favorite meal is served on Mondays, hot turkey sandwich.

We stopped here before the Yuengling tour and it was noon and busy, busy, busy! Any place the locals go you know has to be good. The menu changes and it is all fresh and home made. The mac & cheese was awesome, as was the chili. If you need lunch, this is the place to go! There is limited... More

Ruby's is a small luncheonette on the hill above the large Episcopal church in Pottsville. It is off the beaten path and has limited parking. There are chalkboards listing regular entrees and specials. The fare is mostly soups and sandwiches with a hot plate or two. Things are yummy with a real homestyle feel and taste. Everyone was friendly. A... More

When we were laving the Yuengling Brewery, we asked the tour guide for some food recommendations. One was Ruby's Kitchen. They said it was a tiny place around the corner with really good food. Well sure enough it was small, but the food, service and friendly nature of the owner and staff was nothing short of top notch. If you're... More

nestled in the narrow streets and hills of Pottsville is this great deli/café. I had the Ruby Club which was excellent, fresh made chips were great. Only complaint - could have given more pickles. The kitchen is out in the open, so you can see the food being prepped, and the cleanliness of the staff. Very attentive service. I would... More
