Continue to enjoy going to Ruby's. Has not let me down as the fresh oysters and other shell fish is always very fresh! Vibrant atmosphere without being too loud.

Love this place - love the lemon chicken that thankfully made it's way back to the menu. I know they're known for their oysters but my group stuck to lunch items on my most recent visit. Steak is great, salmon is great, salads are great, sandwiches and burgers are great. I've never had a bad meal at this restaurant and always fantastic service. We ordered the chocolate fondue for dessert and it was enough for our whole table.

Food consistently solid, service is efficient if a little rushed. Warm decor, good energy. Always a good choice for a casual but upscale dinner.

Great breakfast at Rubys. The price is very reasonable. They have freshly made oatmeal for only $7 and it comes with sliced bananas, dried cranberries and brown sugar.

The food and the service were equally good. The only downside was that it is a very noisy restaurant. The desserts are of special note.

The food was fabulous and while the server was very attentive, they food came quickly and the bus people lurk nearby, just waiting for you to put your fork down so they can clear the table. Our reservation was for 6:00 and I assume they wanted the table for 7. My first glass of wine was about 4-5ouncers and the second was about 7 for the same price.

We had better for Dinner than for Lunch. Perhaps different chefs in the kitchen.... The same dish at Lunch time was different from the one we had at Dinner's!

Lively, bustling and noisy, Rubys seems to be incredibly popular with the Rye community. The menu is good and creative and the food is Americanized bistro. We had fresh crabmeat cocktail, tuna tartar pizza and steamers and no disappointments. The service was good and they seemed comfortable with customizing orders. All in all a very good meal but $$.

horrible service
our waiter lacked the training needed to make our meal enjoyable
based on his performance i wonder how the Ruby's teaches their people about both the menu and how to serve. He lacked both skills

Ruby's Oyster House is such a comfortable place to relax and dine. The seafood is fresh and creative....always seem to order the seared tuna BLT with avocado and wasabi mayo, yum, but we have had other seafood dishes that are really fresh tasting...the oyster selection is always a nice variety of east and west coast. Have price bottles of wine on sundays is a great deal too! Wait staff is very attentive and unobtrusive.

excellent specials and seafood. Service was very goods but not too close to crowd the table. They did have a problem with the tap of the beer that I order first but they did have a substitute wich went very well withthe food also. Great wine selection.
