Best steakhouse chain in the country

Best steakhouse chain in the country. Their steaks are off the chart, their appetizers are outstanding (seared ahi tuna the best I ever had).

We've been to at least 12 Ruth Chris's around the US. The Sacramento is no different than the rest--- friendly staff, excellent food, excellent atmosphere. However, one member of the family had his steak cooked incorrectly. He ordered a medium steak, and it came out well done. The waiter tried to argue for a second, but then the waiter apologized,...

Anniversary dinner reservations were made. Greeted with "Happy Anniversary" on introduction. Had a few moments to observe a quiet yet well designed restaurant. Elegant table when seated. We both forgot our reading glasses....couldn't read the menu. A bit perplexed, admitted to server our problem....no problem. He guided us through the choices, asked a few simple questions and made common sense... More

Morton's is our go-to steakhouse, but every once in a while it's good to check out the other guys. A recent dinner at Ruth's Chris was sensational from all aspects. The bartender who made us a special-order jalapeno martini nailed it. The bill was lower than Morton's, too.

Went here for an anniversary and we were seated in a little side room with 4 or 5 tables. It was quiet compared to the main area but it was nice. We had the special where you get salad, main course, a side and dessert. The salads were excellent and the sides were good. The large filet was slightly undercooked... More

Ordered their 8oz Fillet steak which they bought it out on a hot plate. The steak was perfectly cooked, lightly seasoned but just enough for each bite to be amazingly delicious. The steak stayed warm the whole course of the meal and each bite tasted better and better. Amazed by the seasoning, quality and taste of the steak, one of... More

The asparagus was DELIGHTFUL..crisp & tasty..doesn't even need the Hollandaise sauce. The lobster bisque was WONDERFUL..save some bread to savor it to the last drop. The chocolate sin cake was...

Food was well prepared although less oil would be appreciated...not sure if we are paying for the name or value of the food quality and service...otherwise an attentive staff who wants to give you the "Ruth Chris" experience.

We took our mom for her first time ever. She'd heard us talk about how we loved this place but was afraid that it would be a let down. We started with the stuffed mushrooms which were delicious. Steaks were cooked to perfection and side were great. All of us were very satisfied with our food and the service was... More
