This was the first time back in 15 years and it was a disappointment. On a slow Thursday night before the Labor Day weekend, the service was uninspired and bordered on neglectful. The food was uninspired and was not as warm as it should have been for a steakhouse meal. While the wine list was nice and fairly priced, the... More

Ruth's Chris is known for its steaks and service and this Location will live up to the standards that have been set. Very pleased with the service and quality of my meal. Attention to detail and patrons was appreciated.

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

We looked up a place to eat that afternoon while we were in Baltimore and settled on this Ruth's Chris because of the proximity to our hotel. Our server was so friendly and sweet to our 2 year old daughter who was with us to have an appointment at John's Hopkins Children's Hospital. The food was excellent, as were the... 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.
