Very good but wish it was somewhere else

Had a very nice meal here for my birthday and I didn't have a reservation. I was seated immediately and the steak was one of the best in a 100 mile radius. Just don't bother staying at the Embassy. Charge for parking? In Huntsville? And there's nothing around this hotel? What a joke!

For a restaurant that prices their food they way they do, this place is vastly overrated. My mother had a gift certificate that the family took advantage of for a meal together. The wait staff is horrendously undertrained and the food was good, but not great. My steak was so over tenderized as to be almost gelatinous. When you're paying... More

I asked for the check for the chop salad right away after the second try at the fried green tomatoes were delivered. The first attempt was blackened and burned on the bottom. The second was overcooked and heavily crusted fried green tomatoes with dried chunks of crab meat sprinkled on top. The breaded tomatoes and grayed dried crab meat looked... More

Thank you for your candid feedback. I'm so disappointed to hear that our fried green tomatoes fell short not just once, but twice. There is certainly no excuse for this, and based on your description, your meal definitely fell short of our highest brand standards. Please know that I take your comments very seriously, and I will be sure to... More

I travelled with my two children. Prices seemed to high for children, so we ordered appetizers and sides and salads. It was perfect.

The food and drink were what I have come to expect of Ruth's Chris: excellent. But what do you make of a waiter who brings you the bill from the next table, you point that out to him, and never receive an apology? If I hadn't mentioned this he would have undercharged me. Returning to my hotel, I discovered a... More

Meals are shockingly expensive. While the quality of the steak I had was good (filet), my preference for rare/medium rare preparation was unattainable. Naturally, when you place a rare steak on a 400-500 degree plate- it's going to keep cooking... So rare when out the window as my steak cooked in front of me. In contrast, the large dish of... More

I'm so sorry to hear that your steak didn't come out the way you wanted. As a steakhouse, we should absolutely be able to serve your steak according to your preference, and there's no excuse for not achieving that. We'd love another shot at serving you the most delicious steak you've ever had, and we truly hope we get that... More

For our 52 Anniversary dinner we selected Ruth Chris'.

I've eaten there a few times during business meetings at the Embassy Suites. The food is good, portions small, and prices high. This isn't the best place in town for a good steak, but if you're staying at the Embassy Suites, it is convenient.
