We had breakfast there and the food was great. Service was OK, need to smile more. We sat in a booth and it was very close quarters. The servings are large , greasy, and delicious.

I was driving to Ligonier for an interview and was running early so I stopped for breakfast. I had a large order of sausage gravy over biscuits and 2 eggs over easy. The food and service were both excellent. The diner is clean and comfortable with ample parking. I felt the prices and portions were on point.

I love this place! Early dinner with my love. Homemade bread to accompany home cooking. We both had the meatloaf dinner, hers with mash potatoes and mine with homemade mac n cheese! YUM!

My uncle Charlie was a trucker in the 50's/60's...This was his favorite diner on the Lincoln Highway/ Rte:30; Long before the 2 way radio & swindle sheets.Anywhoo, the cheese cake is still worth the stop, coffee is still the best, & if you find fresher, or a better bang for your buck on 30 marry it beacuse it dosen't exist.....chilly.

I visit Ruthie's every time I visit Ligonier. The decor is nothing fancy but, if you are after some really good food and lots of it, this is the place. You have to try this place for yourself....can't understand the negative reviews. A true piece of Americana :)

Heard rave reviews about this place but when we went it was mediocre. Great staff, great service but average food for a little higher price than I thought it was worth

Stopped in for a nice breakfast the staff was very nice. Tried the buckwheat pancakes they were gummy and tasteless. My wife had the basic pancakes they were fair. Sorry ruthies was dissatisfied.

Thank Chris I
