Ruby’s Oyster Bar & Bistro in Rye, NY – Good for a Casual Lunch and Not Suitable for an Unforgettable Meal

I have been to Ruby’s Oyster Bar & Bistro in Rye many times for breakfast before but have never written a post on it. Finally, I remembered and took some photos. Ruby’s Oyster Bar & Bistro is located on Purchase Street in Rye, or the center of the town. I was introduced to the place by a friend a couple of years ago and we have been going there for breakfast once in a while. Ruby’s is known for its Oysters (hence the name) but I have not had the privilege to try the oysters there. Today, we stayed with the well-known burger and salad.

Grilled Bistro Burger with Blue Cheese and Rosemary Brown Sauce. My friend and I shared the entrées. Ruby’s was so accommodating and made two mini portions of the burger and the salad for us. Very accommodating. They get an A+ for customer service. The burger was well done, per my friend’s request; unfortunately, that made the meat dry. But it was still enjoyable enough.

Grilled Salmon Cobb Salad. This was a nice change for the palate from the burger. Standard fare. Fresh and grilled well. But nothing to jump up and down for.

I will need to go back for the oysters and see if it lives up to the name sake. Otherwise, Ruby’s is a nice place to have casual or business lunch but the memory of the food faded rather quickly in my mind. Don’t get me wrong – the food was decent to above average and the customer service is A plus.  But the conversation I had with my friend was a lot more exciting than our entrées.  Maybe it’s an ordering error on our side.
