We have dined here a number of time and loved every bite so I had no hesitation booking here for my husbands birthday. On this occasion the service was absolutely horrible (March 13, 2014). Our server must have had something better to do than provide a pleasant and relaxed customer experience. There was 4 pod us, we ordered bottled wine,... More

If you're a fan of chains and names, then you may have reason to want to go to Ruth's Chris. We have friends who love the place. For us, the lack of originality added to the high prices simply equaled a realization that we were unlikely to return. With so many fun places in downtown Baltimore, why spend so much... More

Ruth's Chris has a really great happy hour at their bar. Drink deals and bar food for a good price. The restaurant is really nice and they have a great outdoor dining area. The the weather was not great when we were there I would have loved to sit outside and enjoy the view.

We had a business reception. The food was outstanding and everyone was happy. The staff became very flustered and irritated after we had more people than expected. A couple of the staff actually showed their irritation to client. Not good. I saw quite a few with empty glasses and all the food was late. Probably due to the increase in... More

Close-seated atmosphere, though comfortable. Service was timed well. Pork chops were succulent and the porterhouse was delicious as well.

Stopped in for lunch during Sailabration and eat on the patio. Service was great and the food was outstanding! We had the beef skewers over mixed greens with sesame sause and the beef was so tender it almost melts in your mouth. Highly recommended!

My hasband and I wanted a drink and some appetizers after having walked around Baltimore all day. We sat outside, as it was a beautiful night, and ordered drinks. We were attended to by two friendly servers and had a wonderful evening relaxing and eating delicious oysters, crabcakes and shrimp cocktail. Wonderful evening for us.
