Ruby Tuesday Restaurants - Orlando / Florida Guide
Florida Guide > Dining
We were drawn to these restaurants by the name - a name the Rolling Stones, who, like us come from England, made famous with their 1960s song of the same name. We have since visited this chain of restaurants on visits to the USA and obviously the Sunshine State, Florida. We have found them to be good value for money offering fresh food. Great if you are a family wanting a meal in a relaxed atmosphere.
Originally started by five students in Tennessee the chain has grown to close on 700 restaurants in 44 States with franchises including Hong Kong, Hawaii, Mexico, India, the Philippines and the first opening in Cardiff, Wales (part of the UK) in 2010 and more are in the planning stages.
In the past few years the chain has undergone an update, where they have lost the garage sale items cluttering their walls to replace them with graphics of chefs at work as well as warm colours on the wall and large lamps – this gives a more calming atmosphere ‘where less is more’. Along with this Ruby Tuesday updated to its latest menu offering.
The serving staff we’ve experienced have been very friendly, with time to talk and explain the menu – often slowly so we can follow the explanations!
Ruby Tuesday offers a brunch as well as lunch and dinner menus. Many dishes are based on American favourites – burgers, ribs, pasta, steak and seafood but you will also find Asian Glazed Salmon and Thai Phoon Shrimp to tempt the more adventurous palates. There are fresh salads with your own choice of dressing with their freshly baked garlic cheese biscuits to try.
If you’ve got room we tried (and we had to share) a crepe – ours was apples and cranberries topped with a caramel sauce.
An average meal is around $14 per person, but you may be tempted by some of their mouth watering cocktails, with and without alcohol (non alcoholic cocktails are refilled free of charge), pitchers of Sangria (well known Spanish wine based drink) draft and bottled beers, American and others from around the world.
If you are in a rush they do offer a ‘to go’ menu. If you know your local branches phone number you can call ahead and place your order and then go to the ‘RubyTueGo’ parking space to collect your meal and drive home. This is often a great option if you have had a busy day in Orlando and want to quietly relax and eat your meal in your vacation home.
Hope you enjoy a visit!
