Stayed at a nearby hotel and found that Ruth Chris had an excellent happy hour. The bar area isn't that glamorous but was nice and the bartender was friendly.

Fabulous dining experience. Perfectly cooked steak, vegetables, bread, and dessert. I know this is a chain restaurant, but they prepared one of the best steaks I have ever eaten. The service was excellent as well. They had a private room for our group of 20+. It was a very nice setting for a group this size. I would definitely recommend... More

The last time we ate at this restaurant a month again, the manager said the food was taking a long time to come out of the kitchen because of a malfunction with the printer in the kitchen. This time the food took a long time to arrive at the table and no malfunction with the printer. I had to send... More

I will not likely return. Dinner took over three hours. After they took our orders they returned to tell us they were out of lettuce, so no salads. How do you run out of lettuce at 7:30 PM on a Tuesday?

If you're looking for a great restaurant for a business meeting, convenient to downtown, this is worthy. Had a great business dinner. Pinot, wedge, steamed spinach and surf & turf. The filet and lobster tail were wonderful. I would absolutely recommend. Great server. Great atmosphere. Great place to close a deal.

Best steak I can remember having. We had the fixed price offering - 6 oz filet and 3 huge broiled shrimp, along with delicious sides of honeyed carrots and spinach souffle, a fresh apple and greens salad, and decadent chocolate cheesecake, all for $43. The atmosphere is very upscale, slightly art-deco, with rich wood and soft lighting. This is a... More

Good steak, no doubt, but soaked in butter which takes away most of the taste of the meat. Exorbitant prices for steak.

Made reservations for Christmas to have dinner at the Ruth's. Restaurant is located is a classic architecture structure called the Scarborough building on 6th street. Spacious location with a perfect blend of style and substance. The waiter who served our table was named Daniel and he was gracious,pleasant and courteous everything a waiter should be. Also the food was superb.

Had dinner here when in the area on business and as always, the food is amazing. I had the petite filet and the baked potato ... both were delicious. It's very nice inside, as well, and the service was also very good.
