It was nice to have a good steak on the Islands. Fish is the king of course when on the Islands but it was nice to have a quality piece of meat. The location is not the best but the food and service make up for it. You will not be disappointed here.

Great service and location but mediocre food all of which is drenched in butter. They do a good job cooking a medium-rare steak but that's it.

This was my first visit to a Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. It was everything I had imagined and more. The greeting was first class. We were seated at a nice cozy booth. I ordered a martini and was offered a large array of choices. I prefer Smirnoff's and asked for that. The drink was way better than I could make. A... More

Ruth's Chris is located upstairs at the Shops at Mauna Lani. The shops put on a hula show two evenings per week. We came to dinner on a Monday evening and asked for a table on the balcony. (I recommend you make reservations, as we snagged the last balcony table at 5:45) They often have an "early bird special", which... More

My husband and I went here for my birthday while we were on vacation. The food was very good, the atmosphere was just okay( nothing special) Our waiter brought me a birthday dessert and birthday card (NOT from my husband) Only bad thing --- the cost. It is a very expensive restaurant --- we have never spent so much for... More

Let me start dirty silverware! Hairs on appetizer yuck. Steak was bland and tuff. Waitstaff were great. Dessert was the best part.

This was our 3rd visit to a Ruth's Chris and our first visit to this one. Prior to departing from the mainland for our time on the Big Island, I was looking forward to our dinner here as we had it preplanned. However, after reading a few previous reviews, I was getting a little skeptical and almost cancelled the reservations... More

We've tried Ruth's Chris at various locations around the country and have usually been underwhelmed. We try once per year or so, because we keep hoping that we'll get a meal that meats our expectations. We finally did this week on the Big Island. Our waiter was friendly and attentive. All of our steaks were cooked perfectly as was all... More

The local sweet corn on the menu was recommended without reservation. It was awesome especially mixed with the garlic mashed potatoes. The waitress recommended a nice red from Frank Family, CabSav, very good value for the money! The roast chicken was amazing especially for a steakhouse! I recommend it.
