When our friends visited us on Maui a couple of months ago, we wanted to find a fun place to eat dinner that our kids could enjoy.  We decided to go to Ruby’s Diner at the Queen Ka’ahumanu Mall in Kahului. We had been once before, and we wanted to eat there again. We decided to go on a Tuesday night because kids eat free! With seven kids total to feed, that is a great deal.

Ruby’s is a 1950’s-style diner that serves American style fare, from the classic American hamburger and fries to delicious hand-spun shakes.  On the evening we went, the atmosphere was fun and exciting as families, soccer teams, and some brave couples enjoyed the delicious food and (mostly) relaxed setting.  Despite the crowds and busyness, our top-notch server made sure that our food came to us hot of the grill and drinks never ran low.

We had a wonderful time at Ruby’s Diner. If you are ever on Maui and want the whole family to go to a fun restaurant, or just had a busy day of shopping and you need to refuel, I am sure you will enjoy Ruby’s Diner as well.
