In 2018, the owner of the Ruby's chain filed for bankruptcy.
Patrons were seen lining up outside the eatery Friday, waiting to get one last meal.
The restaurant has a spectacular location, right out there on the tip of the pier.
Ruby's replaced the previous restaurant, which fell into the sea during a big storm that damaged the pier back in the late 80s.
City officials told the Orange County Register that the facility has been purchased by a new ownership group that plans to eventually open a seafood restaurant there.
