We typically eat here regularly but that will not continue after our visit tonight...Had dinner with the family tonight and ordered the ribs and while they tasted ok, I found a hair in my food!!! Disgusting!!!! Our server was very attentive and immediately took the food away and said he would send over the manager to address. The manager never... More

The first time, our food was not that great. We had broccoli soup, salads and the salmon. The Italian salad dressing was very sour, the broccoli soup tasted like flour rather than broccoli. My husband did like his salmon. The second time, everyone enjoyed the veggie spring rolls, although they were fried. Someone else ordered a chicken sandwich and that... More

Always have a good experience here, even though we usually avoid chain restaurants. The prices are reasonable, especially the drinks.

Our service was prompt and friendly. The menu seems to be built off a 55 item salad bar which in my opinion is pricey. There are other items on the menu which seems limited. The items we ordered were ordered were good. It is hard to mess up a bowl of soup or a hamburger. The 4 cheesy biscuits were... More

I had the salad bar which was great if you wanted to eat lettuce with a lot of toppings. When I visit a salad bar I choose the tiniest amount of a lot of things and other than the lettuce with many toppings the rest was tasteless, even the pieces of ham. Our granddaughter even commented on the tasteless ham.... More

I had a late lunch here at around 3:00 PM, so there weren't many people in the restaurant. The service was very good and it seemed like the people really cared and we're not just going through the motions. I had the half rack of ribs and the salad bar. The food was good and the salad bar was awesome... More

My husband and I went around 7:30 on Black Friday for a date night. It was pretty quiet inside and we were seated right away. I ordered a burger and fries and my husband ordered steak. Our food didn't take very long and was very good. I also had a red sangria, which was good, except it didn't have blueberries... More

This was a nice place to eat. The restaruant was clean and the service was good. The food was nice too. I enjoyed the garden bar (you can add it to any entree for about 3 dollars i think and its all you can eat). https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g38474-d2337975-r437872144-Ruby_Tuesday-Urbandale_Iowa.html#

Missed them since they closed in Davenport. Same good burger and salad bar with the crave worthy dark bread croutons and the cute, tasty biscuits to start. Same forgetable fries and apathetic millennial service.

Even though their Sunday Brunch Buffett is not as large as some it is very good and at a reasonable price. If your get their coupon out of the Register newspaper on Wednesday it becomes an incredible buy. Their French toast sticks are crunchy on the out side, while soft on the inside with a delicious flavoring on the overall... More
