I was told to go to Ruben & Ozzys so always looking for a new place to try we headed there for lunch. Service was inattentive at best. Too busy doing silverware rollups to check on the food once it was finally dropped. Calamari was greasy from onions, and steak sandwich was literally just a piece of steak and bread... More

We came to Ruben and Ozzy's when they first opened their restaurant at the Tahquitz Canyon location. They were fresh and energetic then and we go back regularly because we love their food. We were back last week and once they again - it was fantastic! I had Ruben's Special which was so full of seafood that I had to... More

Small bar/restaurant. We had the oysters on the half shell. They were fresh and had a good taste. The baked oysters were the best. Really great. My wife had the scampi, it had a good taste wasn't creamy as she would have liked but that is the style they served. You can watch them cook right in front of you.... More

My mom and I were looking for a restaurant recommended based on their seafood. We tried the seafood fettuccine and ozzys special, they both were large portions. We both loved our dishes and would definitely visit this restaurant again! Definitely try the green lip mussels for an appetizer!

Would have never heard of this restaurant if it wasn't for people we met at our resort pool. Easy to find, easy to park. Sat outside and enjoyed oysters Rockefeller and deep fried artichoke hearts. So delicious. I also had Baja taco and fried oyster taco. Oh My! In heaven! My husband had the seafood kabob. He also enjoyed it.... More

This is something very different from the other restaurants in Palm Springs and I am so happy to have tried it. I tried the New Orleans oysters and seafood fettuccine. The oysters weren't dinky, but were a good size. The fettuccine was really good and very filling. I came for late night HH and I had to try their drinks.... More

Ruben & Ozzy's Oyster Bar is a casual spot for plenty of seafood and drinks in Palm Springs. They have a full page of seafood appetizers including oysters, calamari, shrimp, Campechana (Mexican Seafood Cocktail), along with steamed artichokes, fried artichokes and more. They also have entrees like seafood scampi and my fave, cioppino which you can get on pasta or... More

Location and service was good however the food was not the best. The steak was over done and they took it back to redo it and still over cooked it. The oysters and steamers were good but the main course meals where average. The food looks pretty but the taste was nothing write home about. Not a place I would... More
