We skipped breakfast this morning and decided on having lunch at the Citadel Outlets. Ruby’s is a typical modern day take on a 60’s diner. The restaurant is sparking and the staff uniforms are immaculate.
Standard diner fare at higher prices but you pay for the experience and it’s good.
We enjoyed so will you, it’s novelty dining.

Do yourself a favour and stop at Ruby’s for a break from the outlet shopping and grab an ice cream. Super huge cones, very good price, great flavour.

We were visiting from Australia and couldn’t believe how much ice cream you get for a few dollars. We will have to return to try the diner after loving the ice cream.

Two small things to improve - a few seats would be good and the closed take out windows made up wonder if it was open. However, as soon a staff saw us they were quick to serve and very friendly.

We came for the 'true 1940's American diner' experience and were not disappointed, it was like going back in time. Really busy and rightly so yet meet and greet immediately and taken straight to our table. The service was great and the food excellent. the stand outs for us were, fried calamari, chicken Caesar salad, Classic Ruby Burger and the shakes. We would back again and again if we lived in the US.

We all chose a different breakfast option but each meal was freshly cooked and plentiful. Staff were lovely and it was good value.

We went to this Ruby today for lunch. I pour out some 'ketchup', but spicy to my friend. I asked service to change this ketchup bottle, she didn't believe me! I warned her that someone put wrong spicy source into the ketchup bottle, she still said, "really?" "really??
We didn't compain ketchup, but this kind of service is really not good.
