Entered the place and temp was so low people were complaining. Hostess tried to seat us next to a very loud party of eight. Ordered the petite sirloin,green beans and rice pilaf along with the salad bar. The salad bar was what I would consider fresh but marginal in selection. Tomatoes were soggy, all items were pretty much commercial grade. Mirror at salad bar tried to give appearance of many more items them there actually were. Nothing at salad bar was tasteful and didn't motivate going back for seconds. I'll give credit for the potatoe salad and macaroni salad. We were served these things they I guess called dinner rolls that looked and tasted only half cooked. They tasted like garlic mixed with onion in a flour mix. Very dry and just about inedible. Green beans were served pretty much cold and cooked in an oil and garlic. The green beans were pretty much raw. The waitress named them something that she thought was "up town" thought up by some gourmet chef! Couldn't believe they actually tried to make up a name for this junk. I liken this to serving a salad with with the ribs and a very pungent tatse and trying to convince the customer it's a gourmet cut. The steak was served almost raw. I ordered the steak as medium rare and not raw. Normally I would attribute this to very large dinner crowd but we got there when it wasn't busy. The dinner servings weren't even close to being tasteful. It had been ten years since we were at a Ruby Tuesday and I just don't understand how they stay in business. Food was same calibre as Ryan's. The waitress tried her best and was very courteous and friendly. Clearly we won't go there again. I wonder if there are any good restaurants here in Columbia that won't cost a fortune.
