Food was typical burger and fries, but very, very good. (There are other menu options than burgers, but they seem to be Ruby's specialty). The shakes are to die for, and eating out on the pier makes you feel like you're eating in the middle...More

Great memories from my childhood. And even greater today! Had Ruby burgers with endless French fries; to die for! Wait staff was incredible; manager friendly and involved. Ask for Adrian.

This Ruby's Diner is ok. All paper products for your dinning, no bathrooms at all, ok food - ok service. Balboa Pier is loaded with fishing people & fish guts on the walk way (gross).

Nicely done Cobb salad with tasty bacon, large egg, fresh tasting tomatoes, and greens. Simple wine choices but good wines. Nice setting on the water. Friendly service. Reasonable prices.

Ruby's on Balboa Island Pier is a must if you are in New Port Beach. It is located at the far end of the pier and on a clear, warm day be sure to sit outside. The burgers are terrific with a heaping mound of...More
