Tasty entrees and a great salad bar make this a favorite with us. We usually only go a handful of times a year as it is a bit pricey. There are coupons available if you go online. Although they don't seem to be able to tell the letter O from the number 0, so be prepared for that and try... More

We stayed at the nearby Holiday Inn on a Friday night during lent and walked next store to thus eating spot. It was clean, had numerous customers, and appeared to be a popular eating destination. Being catholic, my husband and I opted for non-meat options. He had the shrimp basket, which was good, and I had the chips and quest... More

The new salad bar is super and service is generally quite good but there seems to be a lot of turnover. We have tried "carry-out" a couple times of late and everything was as expected: generous portions, etc. It's one of our favorite casual dining places in the Mason City area. (We always use coupons readily available on websigte and/or... More

The restaurant is located across from the hotel. The service was slow. The food was good but a pipe below the salad bar needed cleaning. Salad bar was decent but could have had more items. Prices were reasonable. Overall I would rate as a three.

The summer special with choices plus a dessert was WONDERFUL! I hope they have it again next summer. We are summer visitors of the area. We had not been customers before (yes, I know it has been around awhile), but we will now go there weekly. The desserts are fantastic! My husband and I split one after a movie. The... More

Our party of 6 grew and doubled and they were very quick to accommodate on a Monday evening. The server was very nice, drinks took a long time I think he had too many tables besides us. The bartender stepped up and helped him out. Food was consistent with other Ruby's. Salad bar had dirty plates and there was a... More

My wife and I eat dinner in Mason City once a week and Ruby Tuesday used to be our go-to place. Unfortunately, it has gone seriously downhill. The quality of the food and the seasoning have become extremely inconsistent from week to week. Even worse, the portions have consistently shrunk to the point they've become comically small. The last two... More

The food here is consistent but the service isn't. Some bartenders know what they're doing and some have no clue. The ribs with the Texas dry rub are really good.
