Ruby's Diner Huntington Beach Pier in Huntington Beach, Calif. Photos & Info
1 Main Street (at the end of the Huntington Beach Pier) Huntington Beach, California  92648   (714) 969-RUBY

Huntington Beach - Ruby's Surf City Diner has been in existence since 1980. Founded by native Southern California, Doug Cavanaugh, his first shop opened on the Newport Beach Pier. Franchise opportunities are available through The Ruby Restaurant Group corporate offices. In Southern California, Ruby's can be found on the Huntington Beach, Seal Beach and Balboa Beach Piers, to name a few locations. The Huntington Beach Pier location includes a beautiful building that creates a focal point for the pier. It's red tile roof and aquamarine colored door trims create a strikingly noticeable color scheme visible for miles away.

Ruby's Diner

Ruby's Surf City Diner replaced End of the Pier Cafe, a landmark for years. To see photos and commemorate items of days gone by, visit Alice's Breakfast in the Park. A scrap book there commemorates the family that owned and ran the venue until winds cause closure and reconstruction of the entire Huntington Beach Pier.  We love dining at Ruby's. Beautiful forever ocean views grace nearly every table in the restaurant. The very clean tables, doors and floors all create an inviting atmosphere.  Add to that a solid menu and affordable prices and you'll see why guests will often stand and wait for a table up to one hour.  Many times, there are no waits and no lines so don't be discouraged by Ruby's Diner popularity. Call and get a status report for the wait time.

The Ruby Restaurant Group celebrates two decades (20 years) with plans to more than double its 38 restaurants over the next five years.  There are approximately 15 Rubys Diners in Orange County.

Ruby's 1940s diner was named after Chairman and CEO Doug Cavanaugh's mother and draws diners from all age groups. Ruby's decor includes bright red vinyl booths and white Formica tables, soda fountains and colorful Coca-Cola period posters.

What's in a name' Themes reflecting local environments are simple to modify on an individual basis: Ruby's Surf City Diner is located on the Huntington Beach Pier and Ruby's Super Chief Diner is located next to the San Juan Capistrano train station.

There is no validated parking for Ruby's Diner.  You can, however, park at the base of the pier in City Beach parking lots. In the busy summer months, those who prefer not to walk can ride bicycle pedicabs to the end of the pier for free, though tips are the norm, making the ride available for a small fee.
