Great steaks; services and prices not so hot

The steaks were terrific -- tender and flavorful. That is, when they eventually came, and getting the waiter's attention to get the dessert menu was tough. I recognize that the shops next to the Mauna Lani (and the Mauna Lani itself) are no place for bargains, but the prices were off the wall... read more

I recognize that the shops next to the Mauna Lani (and the Mauna Lani itself) are no place for bargains, but the prices were off the wall -- over $150 for two.

The happy hour from 5-7 and the price fixed menu from 5-6 can't be missed. The food, drinks and staff were excellent! This is a 'must' place to eat, inside the restaurant, at the inside or outside bar and dining on the patio. For happy hour there is often a line outside waiting for the restaurant to open at 5pm....

My wife and I visited on a very, very busy Sunday night. The service was excellent, and our server and his helpers worked to make our dinner experience a good one. We noted that for the expense involved, there were extra costs that seemed a little too much: a steak au poivre sauce was $6 extra after paying $52 for... More

Dinner here is pretty much what you will find at this same chain on the Mainland: good quality food, in a pleasant environment, with good service. Caveat: I much prefer eating locally. But having said this, we had a very pleasant meal here.

Went twice during our stay, it was that good. We always enjoy their steak and services no matter where in the country we go. Ask for extra butter and do not touch the plate, they are serious about it hurting you. Asparagus is great and ahi too.

If you've been to a Ruth's Chris before, then you know what you're getting: tender steaks, tasty side dishes, and a deep wine list. But it won't be cheap. There are a few things you can do about that, though. They feature an "early bird" sort of menu that offers three courses for under $50. And if you go on... More

We have been here several times. Once as a couple... very romantic. Once with our family... easy to visit and here one another.. and once in a wine tasting tour night. Very enjoyable as far as meeting new people, nice meal and just a great experience. This is a very expensive place but have never been disappointed.

Been to one Ruth Chris then you are familiar with this one. Great steaks wonderful wine list Local Hawaiian fish since it is Hawaii. Indoor /outdoor seating with excellent service Expensive but you get what you pay for. Probably the best steak found on the Kohala coast
