Ruby Tuesday's - A TV Dinner Would Have Been Better, and More of It

JOHNSON CITY, TENNESSEE -- It wasn't very busy when we went in, maybe 10 tables at most and that's stretching it. The waiter came, looked absolutely thrilled to be there. He took our drink order, bought drinks later without straws. Went to another table, did business, then brought straws. He took the order.

We waited and waited and it wasn't something that takes a long time, son ordered chicken quisidala (sp), spouse chicken with noodles, me only a serving of macaroni. We watched another waiter bring bread to another table (they got there after we did). Also saw the sign on the table saying if they didn't recommended the shrimp, it's free. He came back by so see if wanted an o'doerve (that long after going in?) and my son mentioned the shrimp and his response was "huh", then said well did you want it?

I told him we would like to have some bread. Disappeared again a few minutes and brought out 3 biscuits a little bigger than the size of a quarter (for 3 people). When the waitress brought the food, I asked if they were running short on bread and she said "one per customer and most people don't even eat them" and walked off. My sons meal looked like the size you'd get on a kid's menu. Husband will eat anything that isn't moving.

Our cost for this extremely poor service and frozen dinner quality meal with 1 biscuit each, 41.00. It's a good thing I didn't eat.

This is a chain joint that failed miserably. Now you know not to go there again. I only frequent restaurants that have earned my business.

I used to frequent Ruby Tuesday's. Looking back, it may have been mostly because the servers at mine wear low cut, tight fitting outfits.

The food was absolutely horrid on occasion, and sometimes frequently. After finding out some of the "kitchen secrets" (eg many things INCLUDING pasta are microwaved!) I gave that dump the heave ho (get it?) and haven't looked back. I have some terrible memories of that place - you know what they say about beauty being skin deep.
