Ruby Tuesday at Lakeforest Mall in Gaithersburg is Closed


The Ruby Tuesday restaurant at Lakeforest Mall in Gaithersburg, Maryland has permanently closed. This was the last remaining Ruby Tuesday in Montgomery County. The location was expected to close in the future with the redevelopment of the mall but the earlier closing is related to the coronavirus restrictions which have closed all of the restaurants in the county.

Good morning Roy. Have not seen a Ruby Tuesday in years. Remeber when they were popular. Enjoy your day!

Roy, They all closed by us too. Larry used to like their garden salad bar and I remember when the lines used to be long to get a table...

Good morning, Roy Kelley I think this is a sign of the times, and we'll see many more companies following that path....  you and Dolores stay healthy and get some exercise by walking while keeping your distance from others...

Hmm, I have eaten at a Ruby Tuesday before, I wonder if we still have any open in my area.

Hello Roy - I know you have discussed some of the long range plans of the Lakeforest Mall in Gaithersburg but I wonder if the site will be considered for some other purposes in the meanwhile.

Good morning, Roy... the Ruby Tuesday in Ballantyne closed permanently a few years ago. I'm not sure we have more than one or two left in the entire metro area. Shame... I used to like Ruby Tuesday... but their service really went downhill.

Hello Roy Kelley, we lost our about 5 months ago here in Aurora, so so much for the great salad bar here.

I believe this chain has deteriorated for a long time now.  I am not surprised that they are closing, and I think the reality that there are too many malls and retail stores (something we were preaching in the late 80's up until we decided to close our commercial real estate company) has finally sunk in...A

Hi Roy, we used to have one in the Portland area too. I believe it closed quite some time ago. I am feeling for our local business and restaurants. We are going to order take-out on Saturdays in an effort to help. D

I hadn't been away from my home for 6 days.  However, awhile ago, I did go for a walk around my block, to simply get some sunshine and exercise.  Many of our restaurants and cafes are closed here.
