Bummer. Always thought I was supporting the Stones when I went there. Hope they got some sort of kick-back.

Good riddance.
Can't recall where (Letterman?), but remember Mick making a joke about getting a lifetime supply of fries (or not getting) for the rip-off of the name.

Funny, the restaurant chain also had the "stones" to sue a band for ripping off "it's" name.

Apparently, in claiming its copyright, Ruby Tuesday is not deterred by the fact that the chain itself took its name from a Rolling Stones song.

But we still have Let's Spend The Night Together on the flip side. Is that Motel 8?

Sad to hear... Their corporate offices are close to where I live and a couple of friends work(ed) in their accounting department.

Peace,

Skimmed, but who cares.
They hope to regroup after a Chapter 11.. in this pandemic economy, not a chance.

Also the S in their logo bears an uncanny resemblance (without stepping over the line into outright theft I guess) to a certain tongue logo used by a certain band.

That kind of plastic crap (the restaurant I mean) we can do without. Buh Bye.

When I asked the waitress what kind of ice cream they had for desert, she said "It's Only Rocky Road, but you'll like it".

But ya know, there is nothing like the drunken authority of ordering a Grand Slam.

I would rather have seen Applebee's go out of business.

Ruby Tuesday's definitely chain quality and not fine dining .... but better than Applebee's .

The New Oelans dish at Tuesday's was very good - I think their problem lied within inflated prices. Inside maybe just a tad too dark? Not sure of decline reasons

Good fries and onion rings. Burgers not bad. With the f'ing pandemic devastating the restaurant business, there must be a hell of a lot of unemployed waiters/waitresses, bartenders, bus boys, cooks, dishwashers out there. Most of us have been in the position at one time or another of needing a job, any job, to survive. Restaurants were always good for that. And it usually involved a free meal and maybe a free drink after your shift.

Say a prayer for those people. Here in the states we have zero national leadership to steer us through. And that's not political, it's a fact. Governors of individual states do the best they can, but they need help. Hope it comes soon.
