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.

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?
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
