My mother and I came up this evening and had a very delightful dinner. Our waiter's name is RANCE and he gave us such great service. Great energy, smiling and even made us laugh. He made us feel very welcome. All our courses were spaced out wonderfully and the meal was to die for. Best mash potatoes I've had in... More

Attempted to have a fun family dinner at Ruth's here on the Big Island, last night July 10th, 2014. Waiter's name was "Rance". He was terrible, uncaring, and had a marginal attitude. For the first seating until the first cocktail came out was 19 minutes. Waiter was in hiding most of the time. We had to continuously as the bus... More

We were going to watch the free luau at Mauna Lani so decided to have dinner first. When we sat down our waiter told us that they had the best steaks we would ever taste. Coming from Australia where we think we do very good steak I had a chuckle. That changed as soon as I cut into one of... More

On Monday and Thursday evenings, there's a free luau at the Mauna Lani Shops. Tables on the deck of this Ruth's Chris restaurant overlook the stage. Our vegetarian, 11-year-old granddaughter had little interest in the loud, expensive luaus put on by nearby hotels, so we booked a table on the deck. Our waiter, Rance, and the staff, in general, could... More

We had dinner here as an extended family with brother, sister-in-law, mother, and neice. We were placed in a booth which was great for my neice. The food was great. This is the second time I've been here and with both visits I have experienced excellent service. Steak is great and I also recommend dessert.

Friday the 13, 2014 found me craving a good steak, so while at Costco, I decided to buy the $100.00 (two $50's) gift card deal for $79.99. Good thing too, because before I was done for the evening, I was glad I had the instant 20% discount. An hour later, I arrived at the Shops at Mauna Lani where our... More

We chose this restaurant for our one night out without the kids on our recent vacation. Unfortunately, it failed to live up to the reputation. We ordered the stuffed mushroom caps as an appetizer, which were delicious. We ordered the garlic mashed potatoes, which were whipped way too much and we ended up sending them back. Dessert was good, wine... More

We visited on our 1-yr anniversary while on Big Island. The food was great and would recommend dining there if you are in the area.

We've been to this Ruth's Chris before so when we planned to celebrate my son's 18th birthday we knew this was a good choice. The food was GREAT! Service was perfect. I'd go back again.

This was our first time at a Ruth Chris Steak House. We have always gone to Morton's, but no Morton's on this island. We arrived early enough to take advantage of the early dinner special (5-6pm). For $45.95 you get a 3 course dinner. This was a great value. On the food front, I started off with the Seafood Gumbo,... More
