Stopped by Ruthie's in their first week of operation. They are going for a old fashioned soda fountain feel and offering raspberry lime rickys and egg creams. Ice cream by West Lynn, very tasty and fresh baked goods. Cute dÃ©cor, homemade everything...give it a try!
We're new to the area and although this spot doesn't have much curb appeal we thought we'd give it a shot since we want to find a good, nearby breakfast place. Unfortunately, the food was mediocre, the service was slow (we were there for over an hour with the bulk of the time waiting to place an order and receive our food, closer to an hour and a half actually, as the timing on the visits to the table was awkward and disjointed...we were first greeted and given menus, then 2nd visit was taking our drink order, 3rd visit was bringing the drinks and by then we were more than ready to order but had to wait for yet another visit to finally place our order as each time our server said she'd be right back). My scrambled eggs were barely cooked and watery/runny on the plate and the rest of my meal was lacking flavor (French toast on soft, mushy bread) yet our server had a good personality to at least create some interaction during our visit. We just aren't in the mood to wait forever when we're hungry and a typical diner is efficient and bustling. If the food were better we might give it another shot, but we'll try other places.

I have been in diners all over the North East. As I travel quite extensively and I prefer to eat at diners. This Patriot Diner in Woonsocket had meatloaf on the menu. So I wanted to give it a try as I love a good meatloaf. I'm not saying this to just complain for the sake of complaining, but this was absolutely the worst Meatloaf I had ever tried in my life. They serve it with mashed potatoes and green beans. The potatoes were good, the gravy on top was good. The green beans were also good. The meatloaf is served in three pieces that kind of look like odd shaped hamburgers. They're covered with gravy, the best part about the meatloaf was actually the gravy. We ordered the meatloaf dinner for me. A deluxe burger for a family member and chicken tenders for another family member. The tenders and the burger were good. My dish came with a salad and soup. I chose the chicken soup, it was good did not taste homemade I think it came out of a can which was why it was good I guess. The salad was horrible I did not even take a chance on eating it. The lettuce was obviously days old oh, and the three pieces of tomato that were on the plate in the lettuce was obviously sliced days before. Wilted damp lettuce and wilted starting to dry up tomatoes is a total embarrassment for any restaurant. The meatloaf is obviously not homemade either it looks like something you might find in a prison type of setting. I guess it's baked but then maybe sliced and then it looks like the slices of Meatloaf are warmed up on the grill, sort of burnt actually on the grill, and then they try to hide their mistake with gravy. It should have another name, it's not even close to being considered meatloaf. No I don't think I'll ever go back to this place.
