Great steak house for the money. We read the reviews and could not see why anything would be negative. Enjoyed the porter house for two and the wedge salads with a great desert. The staff really went over and beyond. Going back soon.

Ruth's Chris Steak House, 2513 Berlin Turnpike in Newington, CT was a recent destination for a business dinner. The private room was perfect for the size of our group (15 employees) and the service was excellent. We were greeted as we arrived at the restaurant and escorted to the private room where drink orders were taken. Appetizers and dinner selections... More

Let me begin with saying that Ruth Chris in Boston is one of my favorite Steakhouses which my family and I frequent several times a year. So when my brother-in-law picked this restaurant to celebrate his 43rd birthday, my wife and I were looking forward to it. First off, my sister-in-law, who's an attorney, made a reservation under her last... More

It’s been a week now, so here is my thought out, honest review of Ruth Chris Steak House in Newington, CT., on Saturday November 1st, 2014. Unless someone else is buying, it just isn’t worth the money. This is my second visit to this chain, the first being in Scottsdale, AZ about 14 years ago. And walking out that night... More

Ruth's is a well known chain of top tier steak houses. They don't disappoint in Newington. We have had dinner here numerous times, often for special occasions such as anniversaries or birthdays. Our last visit was to try out the bar/happy hour menu. The hamburger sliders were to die for and while it wasn't a happy hour special, my wife... More

Haven't been to this location in a couple of years, but so glad I went back and brought a buddy who had never been. Their steaks are so tender and juicy and cooked to your exact taste. The baked potatoes are huge and all the side dishes we ordered were plentiful. Noticed this restaurant serves a very diverse crowd, and... More

We've eaten here several times and it is a great restaurant. Service is solid and the food high quality. My only criticism is that the restaurant feels a bit small. Lots of tables in there, so it just feels a bit tight. Other than that it is fine. Very expensive but worth it!

from the succulent 3 lb lobster to the perfect ribeye, couldn't ask for a better meal.. service was excellent with just the right amount of customer concern without "hovering" or absent. If you like crab, savor the Crabtini. If you are into sweet potatoes their whipped version with shredded pecans is to die for. potatoes sides are well thought-out. there... More

One of the best places in the state to get a great steak, the only thing lacking here is the atmosphere. The tables are to close and the atmosphere is not that of other location's in the chain.
