“incompetent bartender”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2013

Food was OK, waitress was pleasant, but the Bartender obviously didn't go to bartending school and didn't have any idea what a "Dirty Martini' was and used gin instead of the vodka requested. Won't go here again.

“Staff was on top of things!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2013

We live here and go here on occasion. We went last night (8/19/2013 @ 6 pm) Sadly I don't remember our waitress's name but she did a great job. She did mention some of the new items were added to the menu since she had just gotten back from vacation. Also the hostess/?manager saw my daughter getting some cheese from the salad bar and she put it back because it was wet and gloppy. The lady came over to our table with some fresh cheese without being asked. That is customer service...watching around to see what customers need before they ask for it. Great job.

“serves the overflow crowd from cracker barrel”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2013

Hey, it’s Christiansburg, Va. What do you expect? Spent the night here on the way from Atlanta to NJ. I remembered that the Ruby Tuesday had a fairly good salad bar and I was up for that. Walked in, very few tables occupied. Hostess took us to the table closest to the restrooms. Why? We got up to move but many empty tables were not properly cleaned so we settled for a table by the front door. Salad bar.. just ok.. nothing special. Ordered a burger, again just ok, nothing special. The waiter was fine but you know the type that’s new to the business and overly friendly? That was him. Ok, no big deal. we left to drive to the hotel and passed a cracker barrel down the road that was packed… we should have gone there. I know this ruby’s has been there for awhile but I don’t understand how they manage to satuy open. The only reason they exist is to serve the overflow from cracker barrel, which if you have not tried, is really good for the price. Not gourmet but good food and quick service. Bye ruby’s. it was nice knowing you. Never again.

“Awful Food; Unhappy Employees”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2013

The Shellfish Trio that I received this evening is NOT worth $20. The shrimp and crab cake are tiny (3 small salad shrimp) and the crab cake was oily and falling apart. The lobster tail is tough and inedible. A sure waste of money. Not one employee I came in contact with looked even remotely happy to be there.

“A good visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2013

The service staff was very chummy around the bar hold open and loud conversation in front of the patrons. The bartender was efficient and thefood was good. I like their new cajun selections.
