Bone in Ribeye and the views!

We were in town for a military funeral at Arlington National. Wanted to host a special dinner. The good? The views are excellent. If you visit DC occasionally you'll be inspired while dining. The bone in rib eyes were very good but not best ever. The baked potatoes were very very good. The... read more

We reserved a table next to the window with an amazing view of DC. We were not disappointed at all! The view was our entertainment! I wish I could say the same for the food. I ordered the classic special with a steak house salad, filet mignon, and desert. The wife had roasted chicken and a side of lobster mac... More

I always thought fish was on the menu at Ruth's Chris to appease those who accompanied their red meat loving partners or friends who were in need of a juicy rib eye or tender filet. We'll, my wife and I recently visited Ruth's Chris in Arlington, VA, and took a... More

This was our first visit to a Ruth's Chris. We didn't know what to expect and hoped for a good meal. This restaurant exceeded our expectations. Food: The steaks were cooked exactly as requested and had great flavor. We chose the top sirloin. The sides were delicious as well, and each one can easily feed two people with healthy appetites....

On recommendation we tried out Ruth's Chris at this location as a way to do something different and nice for our holiday Christmas meal. Our group of four all had the dinner option that includes salad, steak, side and dessert for about $45 a piece. My Caesar salad was too dry and I really needed more dressing but the wait... More
