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

One of the best Happy Hours on the Island. Half price appies in the bar and a good cocktail/wine/beer menu. Great patio seating at the bar outside. Staff friendly and the food was fantastic! Happy Hour is 4-7pm, if looking for a fun place with nice patio, good food and drinks at half price, this is a definite go.

About the same as all others in the chain. Very expensive. Service matches the price -- attentive and not pretentious. China and other table settings (salt and pepper, etc.) plain white, not simple elegance, but rather simple greasy spoon family restaurant from Costco -- very odd at this price point. Starters and side dishes were excellent. Steaks were OK but... More
