Hands down the best thing that has happened to Arlington in a while. Amazing chef and team, the cutest diner-y vibe and amazing food. HUGE MENU. Really nothing bad to say about this place. I've been at least once or twice a month since they opened in the Fall! Please go support them and you will not be disappointed!!
Great food, great value and great outdoor space for those of us still reluctant to dine indoors. The large patio area and the ability to reserve an outdoor table makes going out much easier.
Love this option! Food, service, vibe were great! Thank you!
The service was very disappointing. We had to find a waiter after about 10 minutes of being seated. We had to track him down again later to get drink refills. Food was average. Everything looks way better than it actually tastes.
Loved that we could reserve a table outdoors. Our server was not the friendliest, and we spotted a table in the sun where we would prefer to sit. I asked the manager to move us, and he graciously did! We enjoyed a series of cocktails - all delicious - and the recommended brunch items. Cannot wait to go back!
Overall, excellent, however, the noise level made it hard to hold a conversation with my dinner mates. It would be a plus if Ruthie's did something to address this issue going forward. Thanks!
Outstanding service and food. The chicken biscuit sandwich and apple pancakes were amazing. Attentive but not intrusive wait staff. Manager graciously accommodated a special request. Good value pricing for the serving size and quality of food.
I go to Ruthies often. And it is wonderful. The service the servers the food everything about it which is why I go so often.
Restaurant was fairly empty but we had to wait over 10 minutes before server offered us water and gave us a menu. It took another 10 minutes for him to take our order. I asked for my salad dressing on the side but it arrived already in salad and a ton of it. Food was good but not as great as I expected.

Superb and excellent service by the entire Ruthie's staff! The entire staff is so welcoming and makes you feel right at home.
This is our second time dining there; and just when you thought service could not get any better, they exceeded our expectations!
The Manager Keyong(sp?) rocks!!!! She was so engaging and checked on us throughout our visit!!! My husband and I cannot wait to return. This place is definitely a neighborhood gem!
They give you great portions! We enjoyed our meal. My husband ordered the beef brisket with the mac and cheese and crispy brussel sprouts and biscuits. I ordered the ribs with the fingerling potato salad and crispy Brussels. All delicious! The Mac & Cheese is so so yummy and so darn good for your tummy! Be sure to select the mac and cheese as one of your sides! You will not be disappointed! Highly recommend!!!
In the last month I’ve eaten here twice and ordered takeout once. So many delicious things to try!
Their patio is sizable and a pleasure to dine on. The staff are friendly and do their jobs well, even with the difficulties brought on by covid. This is a charming neighborhood spot, just make sure you come hungry!
Lori is a great server. Cauliflower was outstanding. I never had brisket before. Will not again either as it is so extremely fatty. This is not a complaint. Now I know. While food is fine, I was so disappointed with the micro pour of $15 a glass wine. It just felt unfair and colored my overall impression.
Hello KCSDC, Thank you for your review. We are disappointed to hear about your experience, particularly the brisket. We are reviewing this more carefully with our team. Please accept our apologies and we hope you will visit us again and have a different experience. Matt Hill, Owner
We had such a nice time! We were probably a tricky group, with four adults and four little boys under the age of six, but the staff made us feel so welcome and went above and beyond to make it a great experience. The food was delicious, drinks were great, and just love the atmosphere and big open windows.
Amazing food! Friendly staff. Will definitely go again!
Everything was good, but because the manager said there were in the middle of employees changing shifts, I got ignored by server , so the manager looked after me.

Awesome Food, Awesome Drinks and Awesome Service! Wonderful!!
We came upon this place randomly and we’re so glad we did. Everything is absolutely fantastic. Service is spectacular as well. We highly recommend this restaurant.
Thank you so much!
Delicious brunch. Highly recommend
We were the first ones in the restaurant and to order, but the last to get drinks and food. So consequently the food was cold. Nothing worse than cold grits and eggs.
The bloody marys are better now that they are making their own tomato juice. The server was not as attentive as she should have been. Seemed to be waiting on other tables more so she missed out on us ordering other drinks.
We've been before with better service and hotter food. This is a great place, just had a bad server.
Hello, Thank you for your review. We are disappointed to hear about your experience with us, particularly the cold food... We will be reviewing this more carefully with our team. Please accept our sincere apologies. We hope you will visit again and have a different experience. All the best, Matt Hill
Nice clean restaurant, great hospitality. Food was great
Stopped by here for the first time and I can't believe I didn't do this sooner! The parking out front is so convenient. Food was fresh and tasty. Service was excellent. I will definitely be coming back.
Hi Jade, Thank you so much for your review! We are thrilled to hear that you had a great time with us. We hope to see you again soon at RAD. Matt Hill, Owner
Great food and service. Lunch menu was fairly priced and had a great variety.
Ruthie's All Day, our go-to restaurant, impressed us again by offering a grilled ahi tuna as the evening's special entree. The tuna was superb! Todd and Matt are always extremely personable and they are always seeking patron feedback. We look forward to a summer menu that will feature more seafood and more additions to what is already a strong menu. If you are tired of paying for parking and fighting the crowds in Clarendon, then it's time to discover Ruthie's All Day. Try it for lunch, dinner, brunch or cocktails on the patio. You will come back!
Hi Charles, Thank you so much for your fantastic review! We are happy to hear you enjoyed the Tuna! Many thanks and we hope to see you again at RAD. Matt Hill
Great Food, Great Hospitality. What else could you ask for
Thank you so much Benjamin!
Absolutely hands down one of the best hidden gems of Arlington. The food is all handmade there, inside and outside seating. Pet friendly. Great service
Lovely outside seating, great atmosphere, friendly staff.
Everything at Ruthie’s is always the best. I dine there often and love everything about it.
Thank you so much Holly!
A great neighborhood place with good food and drinks reasonably price. The kind of place you are always looking for.
Good food but service needs work. Will be back but hope service is better
Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear about your experience with our service. Please accept our sincere apologies. Matt
Every time I go to Ruthie’s it’s a great experience! We haven’t had a bad meal yet!
We had an excellent time and the food was delicious! We sat outside and enjoyed the weather while eating brunch.
Hi Bronte, Thank you so much for your review! We hope to see you again at RAD. Matt
Food was amazing! We went for Easter Sunday brunch. Our reservation was for outdoor seating, but upon arrival we were told there wasn’t space... as we watched 4 groups be seated outside immediately after. Unfortunately we had a waiter with poor service! I don’t think this is indicative of the overall service, as many other tables seemed well taken care of. Our waiter took our food and drink order, then we didn’t see him until our meal was done. We could’ve used a coffee warm up and some hot sauce.
Our food came out quick and was delicious, portions are big! I got the fried chicken biscuit, not spicy as described, but yummy. My husband got the breakfast platter, no one left hungry. We also tried the Apple donuts- do yourself a favor and order 2. We will be back!
Our whole family enjoyed our brunch at Ruthie's. We love the cornbread in a skillet and the doughnuts. I had a great omelette, my husband had the nice salmon salad, and my son had the steak frites. All were great!
This place is awesome! Great food, awesome wine and beer selection. I had the duck with sweet potatoes, dirty kimchi rice, and a salad, my mom had the salmon with grits and mac & cheese, and my boyfriend had the brisket with mac & cheese and brussel sprouts. All were delicious! And our waiter had great knowledge of all the wines. This place was so good, we went back 2 days later for breakfast (which I also recommend!!)
The food and atmosphere are amazing at RAD!
It was a wonderful dining experience! The food, service and atmosphere was great. My friends and I will definitely return!
Like fine dining BBQ. Everything was great and very upscale!
Great food, good portions, fantastic drinks and outstanding staff. Be sure to make a reservation. This is a popular spot.
Good food, great staff, nice ambience, well-spaced for families or larger parties. We would go back again!
Thank you Julia!
Very disappointing. When we walked in the hostess said "we wondered if you were going to show up". Seriously? I had a reservation and I answered the email asking if I would be there.
The hostess took us to our table and the waiter came over and asked us if we wanted a drink and he'd be back in a minute. Well that was almost 10 minutes later. We ordered a bottle of wine and waited...He finally brought over our wine and immediately asked for our order. So we ordered dinner and no appetizers. When dinner arrived we thought it would be able to enjoy our meal at a nice leisurely pace.
But halfway through our meal numerous people kept coming by and asking if we were finished. We were both still eating. The minute we put a fork down they were back asking if we were finished. We looked around and there was no line and there were plenty of empty tables. When we decided we were finished we asked for the check multiple times. Our waiter kept forgetting it.
I had reservations for this coming Monday night but cancelled them.
