Rudy's- where the mermaids go

Ruby's is great! It is pure Coney Island. Old nostalgic pics provide a back drop to their 45 foot bar right on the beach. Great old juke box playing Sinatra and the original Under The Boardwalk. Actually met a mermaid at the bar who told me stories about midgets, parades, and the other side show "freaks". Very colorful, very friendly, very Coney Island, and cold beer.

rubies bar and grill

Worth a look for the pictures on the wall . But try to get past the rough bunch of regulars , especially the guy with the one eye at the front of the bar. The bar "maid " , whose is a real looker, seems more intreated in serving the old time regulars than us. At $5 for a Bud and $10 for a shot of Hennesy kind of steep. And whats with the covered prices?

  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
