Construction crews have broken ground for the new Ruby Tuesday restaurant at 3125 Sixth Ave. S.E.
The site is in front of Lakewood Mall, between Pizza Hut and Valvoline Instant Oil Change.
Ruby Tuesday is a national chain with more than 850 restaurants. It specializes in American cuisine in a casual dining atmosphere with a full bar.
Plans filed at the Aberdeen Planning and Zoning Office call for a 6,102-square-foot building with a dining area big enough for 179 seats. There will be 46 tables.
Todd Hoekstra, spokesman for owners Aberdeen Cuisine Inc., has said that construction will likely be finished by October.
