Great home-cooked food! Friendly faces and great service! Coconut pie is the best around. Everything from spaghetti to hot dogs with chili and slaw--just perfect and all made there!

A good lunch with a lot of selections for veggies. Country fried steak very good, hashbrown casserole too. No shortage of saltiness, though, a little much. Good bread. Good service. Offer wine too, but seems to be more suited for iced tea type place, simply decorated. Right on 220.

Ruth's is one of the closest restaurants to our home and we eat there frequently. The best choices are on the special boards and change daily ( I love fried chicken liver Thursday and Meatloaf Wednesday myself). Additionally they have a full menu and breakfast all day, plus limited wine and beer selections. Not going to win any Michelin stars... More

This is the best place in SW Virginia you can to get a true "made from scratch" flavor profile outside of what is made in a great cook's kitchen! I had chicken fried steak which makes me smile just thinking about it. The green beans, mac & cheese and that perfect gravy brought this meal to the next level. I've... More

We have eaten at Ruth's several times on different occasions. The food is home cooked, but it is basic ordinary food. Nothing special. The first few times we ate there, I thought it was reasonably priced, but it appears that they have gone up on their prices significantly recently. It just not appear to me to be worth the price...

The food here is great. The price is right. However, the service can be lacking. Sometimes you are made to feel you are a burden to them. The staff really needs to work on being positive rather than presenting a negative image.

This place was recommended to us by a local furniture store. We decided to give Ruth's Place a try. I was pleasantly surprised ordered the catfish. Might I say... it was delicious!!! Actually, there were so many items and sides to chose from it was a difficult decision. Everything was really good. I looked around to see what others had... More

Most of the meals were from cans, I had salisbury steak and it appeared to be a tv dinner and tasted like it. Service was good and the price is reasonable.
