The outdoor patio has live music. The food for happy hour as well as dinner is always excellent . The plantation home in Midlothian is the most beautiful, elegant Ruth Chris that I have seen.service is great.

My husband and I, along with our best friends, have been going to this Ruth's Chris location for years. It is truly a 5-star experience every single time. I have never had a meal that wasn't cooked perfectly or service that wasn't exceptional at this location (I have probably hugged every server there - they are wonderful!). Sitting across from...

Ruths Chris is one of my favorite places to eat. You pay for what you get and with that you get a meal on the steep side, but you get the most flavorful steak and seafood in the world.

Everyone knows Ruth's Chris restaurants are a wonderful place to eat. However, the Ruth's Chris' restaurant in Crystal City-Arlington is their best location in the world. The restaurant is located on the 11th (top) floor of an office building overlooking Washington's Reagan National Airport with beautiful views of Washington, DC. Their Happy Hour is a MUST attend. Get there early... More

the bartender needs some polishing, but you get a number of dishes for $7, like the burger, fried lobster tail, and more. cocktails also $7. with beautiful views.

While traveling with a group, we had flight issues and the airlines broke up our group. When the final flight group FINALLY arrived in DC, they had missed most of the activities that the other group got to enjoy. As a consolation, I wanted to take this group of 9 people to a really nice dinner. Because it also happened... More

My granddaughter and I eat there on our trip to DC. we spent the day in Arlington Va before we left. It was close to the airport so we could get there fairly quick..The view of DC over looking the Airport was beautiful. Though it was a bit pricey.

My husband and I attended this location for Father's Day and my experience was a total failure! We both ordered the Father's Day special, which was the rib-eye and lobster tails. When our food arrived, both our steaks were overcooked. When we finally got our waiters attention, who failed to check on us throughout the whole service, we told him... More

The prices are outrageous ($10 for a baked potato?!), the steaks are mediocre. The view across National airport and towards DC are very nice indeed, the views of the clientele were awful. We went there last night, taking out-of-town visitors who craved a steak. We should have stayed at home. Ruth's Chris is, at best, a meat and potatoes restaurant,... More

this time it was just okay. Most of the time I rave about how great my steaks are prepared and well-seasoned, this visit, I couldn't say that. I am not certain if it was the amount of people they had in the restaurant or if they were rushing trying to get us in and out. Overall, I give this visit... More
