Ruth's Chris is a classic steak Restaurant.......It has mild to wild (huge cuts of prime meat)...and some very well aged petite cuts. as always the creamed spinach....awesome, and a ceasar salad very good....tried the preset menu deal (inclusive) and everything including the Rib eye was great.

Perhaps we hit them on a bad night. But the chef was 0-4 in cooking out steaks medium rare. The side dishes, salads, and dessert were top notch. But over cooking steaks at a steak house? The waiter was attentive and friendly in taking our orders, but disappeared thereafter. We left feeling the place is overrated, and overpriced. Do not... More

The favorite entree of mine at RC is the white meat of chicken stuffed with cheeses; served more than "piping" hot! Possibly it's a tiny bit salty as were the sides; mashed potatoes (also watery) and creamed spinach which felt like Stouffer's frozen spinach rather than a nice fresh spinach with a cream sauce...the sides definitely need an overhauling. Everything... More

Food was good, service was great! I was traveling for work alone so I opted to eat in the bar. The servers were attentive without hovering and even had the valet get me a taxi when I was ready to leave. My only disappointment was the my mediumsteak was very clearly well done. By the time I received my food,... More

I've always been a fan of Ruth's Chris, but tonight I was introduced to the great value of their Happy Hour. The limited menu doesn't skimp on quantity or quality. My DW chose the burger with Blue Cheese. I opted for the steak sandwich. Both were outstanding, and priced at $10 and $12, they filled us as much as if... More

Great service. Food/Drink over-priced. Steaks and sides were under-cooked. Better food and lower prices elsewhere.

We have been to Ruth's Chris happy hour many times, but this was our first dinner in the dining room. We had a reservation for seven at table #91 (romantic corner banquet). The table wasn't ready when we arrived, but they were able to seat us in another lovely romantic banquet (#75). Turned out better since we had Carol as... More

I'm not going to say it's the best i have ever had, however it was close. We went to celebrate a friend's birthday. Service was great. Every staff member stopped to wish a happy birthday. Each member of our group really enjoyed their dinner. I will be back again for sure
