    We dined there and this was the first time, my brother has Celiac disease and heard you had a great menu for gluten free...NOT! He didn't really have very many choices. I had the fresh salmon and it was awful. It had no taste, I suspect it was not Alaskan by Coho salmon. My husband had the coconut shrimp his favorite, the shrimp looked like frozen shrimp we can buy at the supermarket, very little coconut but a lot of batter! The Caesar salad was mediocre, everything was a bit over priced. Compared to the Texas Roadhouse you guys have missed the mark. Won't be coming back.

    Ruby River has been my favorite steakhouse for years. However, they have recently changed their menu which was disappointing. And some of the side dishes just tasted different.

    love, love the atmosphere, the food was to die for..one of the best steaks I have ever had. Not to mention the ribs that fell right of the bone tender..and the prime rib. Cook to perfection....the only really complained I would have is the waitress we had was to busy with her friends that she had forgot like a glass of water we asked for and she never came back to refill my in-laws coffee

    Nice place with a nice rustic feel with western type decorations. I don't recall seeing any TVs so it might not be the place to go to watch the game. I thought it had some nice dim mood lighting for a special occasion or just to relax. The service was pretty good with friendly waiters and waitresses. I wish he would have told me he was going to charge me extra just to put bacon or something on my potato. We went here for our 5 year anniversary and had a good time. I thought the new york strip was quite good with a lot of flavor. It seemed comparable to outback and certainly better than Chiles or Texas Roadhouse. It was a bit pricey. I would probably pay a fair bit less at Outback for comparable food.

    The food at Ruby River was good. Steaks were cooked properly and the potato was one of the best I have had at a steak house. The Salad was a little sad and the bread served was too thick and doughy to be truly delicious. Additionally, their beer selection was poor. But overall the experience was satisfactory. I will say that Ralph, our waiter, was outstanding and more than pleasant and fun to interact with. Thank you Ruby River!

    It was a bit of a let down. I do not normally select restaurants like Ruby River for special occasions, but i was tired after a long day of Birthday stuff, so I gave it a try. My partner's steak and food was cooked just right for him. My steak came out way over cooked and the sides seemed to lack quality. I don't feel for the money i would be likley to return. Our server did do a very good job.

    Very nice, we return there for the food and reliability of service. Only one thing this time we were concerned about. The waiter had no knowlege of Open Table and asked the Manager who said he didn't either. It is linked right on their website. I was inquiring how we get the Open Reservation points, how do we if they don't recognize you?

    The service and atmosphere were fine, but the food was awful. I had the wedge and it had an overtone of pineapple that did not fit. My prime rib was uninspired. They deep fry the baked potatoes in a sweet cinnamon batter that overpowers everything. I won't return and would suggest you go anywhere for steak but Ruby River.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012

    While the food was good, and the service was good, the inital seating experience left something to be desired. I made reservations a week in advance for 6:00pm on a Thursday night for 11 people. When we arrived at 10 minutes to six, the hostess gave me a blank look when I told her we were the party of 11 for 6:00pm. They had no idea. So either Open Table didn't tell them we were coming, or Ruby River really dropped the ball. It took them upwards of 10 minutes to get the table set up. I'm not quite sure what took so long since there were only 10 or 15 other people in the place.

    Seems an odd place to be on Open Table. I was looking for a good steak that was less than The Capital Grille or Morton's but better than Roadhouse. This place is kind of a Roadhouse. The food was good and the pail of peanuts on the table was a nice touch. They really missed making the steaks to the proper doneness. I got medium for a medium well and my buddy's medium filet was barely in the rare range. The center of his was raw and bloody. We both worked our way around what was too underdone but they would be well advised to make sure the cook's know how to measure doneness.

    They easily accommodated a group of 11. The staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. The wine list was short but had a couple good choices. The value was outstanding. The prime rib was good, but not great, but the sourdough bread, the creamed spinach and the garlic mashed potatoes were excellent.

    My wifes steak was cooked right, but it was a good thing we did not take the servers advice on how to order it. I tried to ask for my prime rib rare,it came medium, and was dry it was a good thinkg that I had the au jus. If it is normally cooked right i do not need the au jus, just the horseradish. I must say that i get better prime rib at the early bird special at Archibald's at gardner village for cheaper. maybe i should go with the steak next time.

Cutting food was difficult...in fact a piece of steak went flying on to the floor because the plate slid around so much. Also, the Tuscany Chicken was not as good as I expected it to be...could have been a bit more spicy

    I found the service to be jovial and with a good sense of humor, and the food was excellent. While our initial appetizer was out, the waitress recommended a substitute, which was the superb, a coconut shrimp with orange dip. Dim lighting, cowboy-themed decor, and buckets of bar peanuts while ordering. Great place for a quiet and romantic meal for any occasion.
