Good food and excellent service. Our waitress went above and beyond. She helped us maximize a coupon we had resulting in a bountiful but inexpensive meal. Wow!

Just not my favorite place for lunch. We go when we just want soup and salad bar. Food from the menu is inconsistently cooked. Crispy chicken was not crispy. Staff not too attentive.

We were here yesterday with a group of nine. I know that's a large group, but it took a really long time to get our food. Probably close to an hour (good thing we had lots of people to talk to). I had the double decker chicken (chicken breasts, cheese, bacon, and mushrooms). When it came, there were so many... More

Ruby Tuesday 3635 S Florida Ave. Lakeland, FL 33813 863-701-7829 On our most recent visit, we ate here for lunch (7/28/16) after my wife got an email offer for a ‘free hamburger’ when you ordered a dinner item. Naturally, I got the hamburger. Ordered it well done but not dry and asked for extra onions. Asked for the pickle on... More

We had the sirloin steaks my wife's was cooked perfectly, mine was a tad rare but o.k. The salad bar was well stocked and varied and my jacket potato was good, but my wife's vegetables were cold as was the plate the food was served on however the manager made suitable recompense. The server Amber was good and we will... More

Overpriced & Underserved! Find a different place to eat, if you want something edible. It was myself & a friend on a Monday close to 1pm. We were seated quickly at a dirty table with dirty seats. We had to clean it because the hostess didn't care it was dirty. She did bring us some extra napkins. The waters were... More

I like the idea that you can enjoy a good meal in fairly quiet surroundings. Many places today are so noisy that there is much competition just to be able to talk to friends or family. The staff is friendly and prompt, the salad bar is great and whenever we had a problem, they cheerfully fixed it.

This Ruby Tuesdays was clean with a well-stocked salad bar. My steak was cooked to order and tender. My friend however found her steak to be overly cooked which was disappointing. Even so next time in Lakeland, I would visit again.

Pro's: The staff was very friendly. That's it. Con's: We were seated quickly, at a table that wasn't cleaned from the last person(s), as there was lettuce and shredded cheese all over my seat. The table next to us was not cleaned either and the restaurant was not very busy. Apparently they had a very busy lunch, as few tables... More

One of my favorite restaurants and they are always very consistent in the quality of food. I happen to be down in Lakeland Florida for the Sun and Fun Airshow. I have always been happy with the quality of rubies up near Ocala so I tried it this one. Very convenient to the show and really happy with the quality... More
