“Nelson 151”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

Stopped in for dinner one night during our wine tour. My wife had a steak which was flavorful and cooked to her liking. I had a pasta dish with chicken, also had a good flavor. Overall what you should expect from a chain.

“regular r-b-T's”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Got seated quickly on a Saturday night holiday weekend, but otherwise things went slow. Got our food hot and the way we ordered it; got our'discount' coupon oddly added to the bill (half-off one entree with purchase of two) with some quirky explanation by the server, but all good. Salad bar is worth it as a 'sides' substitute, but not as an add-on priced upgrade. Drinks are pricey, too. Sweet tea isnt really sweet, not by 'south of the MAson-Dixon' standards that I've been familiar with. Recommend the lobster/steak combo and the sauce rich salmon. were too full for dessert.

“Good Food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014

I went to this restaurant yesterday afternoon. It was Cinco de Mayo and not as crowded as many Mexican Restaurants. I had a margarita which was delicious and the Turkey Burger which also was good.

“One of the best salad bars and steaks in the Shenandoah Valley”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2014

We arrived at noon and the place was full, but we were lucky to get a booth and a menu immediately. The drinks arrived within a few minutes of ordering them. We chose petite sirloins, rice pilaf, and the salad bar instead of a second side. A lot of fresh veggies at the salad bar--3 choices of lettuce, good potato salad, a tub of bacon crumbles, black olives, and at least six dressings. Two herb rolls waiting at our table when we returned to it. Drinks refilled free, and there's time to go back to the salad bar. The steaks were fantastic, well done exactly to order, but juicy and so tender we could cut them with a fork. The rice was tasty, the waitress attentive and very pleasant. We've found a new favorite restaurant with attractive decor and a very convenient location near shopping.

“Salad bar - standard fare”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2014

My wife and I were on travel through northern Virginia and when dinner time rolled around, we decided to try Ruby Tuesday in the Waynesboro VA region – we had eaten at various Ruby Tuesdays locations in the northeastern US over the years and are quite familiar with their offerings, service, and quality points. We usually make a meal of the salad bar alone when we dine at Ruby Tuesday, and that is what we did at the one in Waynesboro VA during our late February 2014 stop. We were seated immediately by the cheerful greeter at a comfortable booth, one convenient to the salad bar. Our server became rather perfunctory/indifferent once he learned he could not sell us a round of drinks and that we were interested only in the salad bar, but he at least was efficient. The items on the salad bar were fresh and the staff maintained full item bowls for the steady stream of grazers. The salad dressings were unremarkable but okay; for example, the French/Catalina dressing had a nice tartness but seemed lacking in garlic or other flavors. The croutons, which consisted of ½ to ¾ inch cubes of dark bread that had been deep fried or sautéed (couldn’t tell which), unfortunately, had been sitting around too long and the oil they contained had a somewhat disagreeable taste. We don’t mean to be overly critical of the Ruby Tuesday in Waynesboro VA – we both managed to down two heaping salad plates and were quite satisfied in the end.
