My husband and I went to Ruby's after strolling down the Oceanside Pier. It was a wonderful find. The views, of course, are beautiful! The food portions are very generous: after our waiter's warning we shared an order of fish tacos which were exceptional! We...More

The service was excellent and the food was amazing. We loved the fact that the restaurant was out on the pier and the view of the ocean was stunning. We will be. Ack again.

Fit bit it to the end of the pier and use the burned cals to enjoy fun fifties dining. We loved this place. Charming, nostalgic, and good grub. Dined here twice with kids who each received a 3D cut out car to distract and entertain...More
