My husband & I had lunch there @ 2:00 We chose the salad bar & added a dish of grilled chicken for an additional boost of protein. We found the bar to have a good variety of lettuce mixes, veggies, artichoke hearts, crackers & hummus dip, roasted broccoli, along w usual carrots, celery, beets, eggs etc. Good variety of dressings,...

Today was the second time we were at RT , the food was very good, and a great value to. Our server Collin was very professional, did not miss a thing! We will definitely go back there.

Having ordered my favorite dinner there, I was extremely disappointed this time. Chicken Fresca is usually very good but this time it was inedible. So salty. The mashed potatoes were pasty and the broccoli was mushy. The salad bar was obviously downsized. It had always been a go-to place for us, but no more.

I saw the ads for their 4-course special (dessert included) and decided to try it after church one Sunday. That Sunday the salad bar was neat and well stocked. My chicken selection seemed to be a smaller portion than usual but for the price I can't complain. What was exceptional was the cheesecake & ice creams offered in the 4-course... More

We went here because we heard the salad bar was upgraded in many places, but apparently not here. It was O.K., Nothing special. But the three for one $12.99 special was a bargain. The chicken was cooked and seasoned perfectly, the sides were fine, and the berry start with the ice cream was the best. Not huge servings as it... More

Took forever to get a waitress when we finally did I ordered tilapia and the salad bar, hubby ordered bourbon chicken and baked potato and salad bar. I notice at the table near us that meals were coming out wrong and their... More

They recently minimized the salad bar and removed a lot of the options i used to like about it, that was pretty disappointing. And in general the food is pretty average. Wait staff has always been friendly though. Interior atmosphere is a little cramped and a little dated, IMO.

Ruby Tuesdays are disappearing across the country. Too bad because they have one of the best salad bars in the industry. In fact, most times, that's all we order. Don't get me wrong, they have a great menu...ribs, burgers, steak, chicken...you name it... but, if you want to be healthy and have a great meal, just stick to the salad... More
