A new restaurant has opened in the former Ruby’s Diner spot at the end of the Huntington Beach Pier.
The iconic restaurant shuttered in February 2021, three years after filing for bankruptcy.
Bud & Gene’s, a new restaurant concept named after two historic city lifeguards, held a grand opening on Tuesday. The eatery will serve seafood, burgers and other fare. Diners can order at a take-out window or eat inside.
The permanent future of the site remains to be seen, as restaurant officials indicated the location may temporarily shutter for additional renovations or changes to the concept.
