Great steaks

Ruth’s Chris at Mauni Lani, Hawaii, USA. We have dined here many times and really enjoy the atmosphere and food. The steaks are really good, signature USDA prime steaks. Very consistent and served on piping hot plates – hard to go past the New York Strip. Sizzling meat accompanied with great sides... read more

Our experience wasn't as good as we had expected but I'll explain both negatives and 'positives'. We went there on a Thursday night to enjoy the Hula dance. The people at the front desk were welcoming and friendly and when we asked if we could move outside when the Hula dance started, they agreed. However when we finished our meal... More

Such a nice break from hotel/resort food. Go between 5:00 and 6:00 for their early bird menu - it's a great deal. It's the best meal we have had on the island. Crab cakes and BBQ shrimp are amazing.

During our recent visit to the Big Island and our stay in Mauna Lani, we took advantage of our hotel shuttle to the Shops at Mauna Lani which is where this Ruth's Chris is located. We had an excellent dinner - oysters rockefeller, filet and crab legs. All of our food was delicious and the service was excellent. We managed... More

A very disappointing visit to Ruth's Chris at the Mauna Lani Shops. The evening started off nicely - seated in a booth as requested, order taken quickly, and a special order was accepted. But once dinner was served, service went downhill. One order was incorrect. My steak arrived on a sizzling plate and yet, the steak was on the cool... More

You like steak? This is the place for you. We have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed yet. A1? Forget about it. You will not want anything to get in the way of your taste buds as they enjoy what has to be some of the best steak in Hawaii. The salads are excellent as well, as... More

Ruth's Chris choice of restaurant was for chosen for a birthday. It is not a cheap option (although the early dining special is good value) and there were a number of people celebrating special occasions. Mine was my birthday. We had a "booth" type of seating which made it quite private and had an exclusive feel to it despite being... More

We had a great time! The steak was cooked perfectly, and we tried the chopped salad and it was very good. I found my experience at this location much better than the recent experience I had at the one in Honolulu at Restaurant row. The staff was friendly, cordial and very helpful. Congratulations for keeping up the good work!

Met friends for dinner here. Been to many other Ruth Chris Steak Houses but first time here. On 2nd floor in shopping center but nice decor. Service was good as well as food. Salad, steak and dessert were good. They had a talented local musician playing music we couldn't recognize. Would have preferred he play Hawaiian music. Otherwise experience was... More
