This a good place for a basic breakfast. The wait to get seated can be a little long for what you get so if your in hurry on the weekend keep this mind. The wait for the food was also long but I didn't get the impression this was normal. We had a good size party so we were able... More

We were in the area to attend a grandson's graduation form basic training at Fort Benning. The drill instructors of Charlie Company continually sing the praises of Ruth Ann's to the recruits. Following the first family day event, the recruits were allowed to leave the post for the first time since their arrival. The first place Alex wanted to go... More

Ruth Ann's is a local restaurant that's open for breakfast and lunch Seven days a week. They are known for their delicious breakfast as well as daily lunch specials. One breakfast item I personally recommend is the Captain Crunch French Toast, you don't need syrup with this.

Love Ruth Ann's for breakfast. She has some of the best selection and good southern cooking. Love the sausage and the scrambled eggs. Cant go wrong with any of her breakfast selection. Great coffee and iced tea. A local favorite.

Sunday morning for breakfast was very busy. Our meal was just okay. I ordered the country ham. The meat was paper-thin. My over easy eggs were underdone. The grits and toast were very good. Husband's omelette was also underdone and hash browns were barely warm. Disappointing after waiting 20 minutes for a table.

Time for breakfast? Go to Ruth Ann's. Great service, super waitress and large menu. The most important meal of the day need to be good, go where the locals go. Enough said.

Had breakfast on a Sunday morning with my wife and daughter. Servings were large and prices fair for the amount of food (probably could have easily shared two plates between the three of us). Selection, taste, and flavor were all good. I would likely go there again if in the area.

4 egg omelette, thick, hearty pancakes (tried the chocolate chip), hash browns, and pretty much everything you need to get a great start to your day. Then walk it off in the historical district, or on the River Walk :)
