Great restaurant!

Ruth's Chris is right in the heart of Fort Lauderdale, serving up some of the best steak and lobster that I have ever had. Also, make sure you check out their $8 happy hour to get some incredibly delicious deals!

I have been hearing how good the HH was at Ruth Chris. We went and very disappointed. HH wine was their house wine of a cab, merlot, or Chardonnay. Price was $8 a glass. I don't think that is a big deal at that price. We ordered 3 entrees which were really like appetizers for $8. Disappointed. Many other HH... More

Ruth's Chris Steakhouses used to be high quality, but now seem to be resting on their past reputation. My wife and I went there for a nice evening, but the overall experience was average. Service was good, but food was mixed. My wife's Crabitini was filled with overcooked crab, and while the shrimp in my appetizer was fresh and flavorful,... More

Nothing special about this place. The meat runs hot and cold and so does the service. Been to several Ruth's Chris Steak Houses and this is the only one that I will not go back to.

The food is absolutely lovely, the service was super and the cocktails the best we tasted. Fine dining at its best. My wife had the steak and thought is was the best steak she has ever tasted. The restaurant itself is everything you could wish for. This was the best meal we had during a two week stay (although it... More

We dined at Ruth's Chris this past Saturday evening to celebrate my birthday. From the moment we arrived, everything was wonderful. Table was decorated with birthday confetti. Our server was Rob and he couldn't have been more attentive. Food was delicious from French Onion soup to Crème Brulee'. We had special attention from their manager, Fallon who made sure everything... More

Our first night in Fort Lauderdale was blighted somewhat by our decision to eat at this restaurant on Sat 25 July. It felt a little bit uncomfortable as we arrived without the usual relaxed charm of the American offering. It was efficient though as we didn't have a prior booking. The food was good, steaks excellent. In our desire to... More

Being a gaucha, the homeland of 'Brazilian churrasco', I like to compare steak experiences. Though American BBQ is not the same as our "fogo de chão" and "espetos", the steaks, Chicago style, are much more closer to what we have in the South of Brazil. This place, in particular, is very religious about how to prepare the meat (medium rare,... More
