Nothing can ever go wrong with Ruth's Chris Steak House

Best steak and love the way they prepare it...very classic setting and service. Never heard anyone has any complaint since we started eating there in Dallas 10 years ago.

The bartender remembered me from eating there a year ago. I always order the Filet Mignon medium rare just like in the picture they use for advertising with the wedge cut out. Spinach Salad and Seafood Bisque were excellent as well. My wife had the stuffed chicken ordered without the skin. Good Times!

I love this place. Aside from them really knowing how to prepare a steak, it's wonderful to go to a nice place and have amazing service as well. Every time that a plate was placed in front of you, you had someone coming and checking on you to see if you were enjoying your meal. Not in a harassing way... More

Great steaks, and enough other stuff to satisfy the non-meet eaters, like lobster and vegetarian sides. Love their creamed spinach, with a baked potato and broccoli or Brussels sprouts. Excellent wine list. There is no outdoor seating.

People say their steak house is as good as Ruth's Chris. I say why not just go Ruth's Chris. Always tender,hot and tasty. Great side dishes. Just can't be beat.

Great place to eat a good steak. 5 of us had different steaks and they were all good. Not best ever but very good. For wine we had the Francis Coppola Director's Cut Cabernet Sauvignon. A great Napa wine with beef. We shared a couple of sides. All were large and tasty. This place is on the edge of a... More

They have a nice happy hour with $8 specials I got engaged at this location

From the moment you enter you'll see the difference. The incredible atmosphere, and then after you're seated, you hear a sizzling noise coming your way, as a Walter passes your table carrying an entree for the table near by and as it passes by you smell the most amazing, steak still sizzling in the butter. Ahhhh! I'm salivating right now... More
