Since this Ruth's Chris is rarely open for lunch, we chose Mother's Day to take my very elderly father and Aunt since they prefer not to go out at night. We were one of the first parties to arrive but there was some confusion as to what waiter had our table. After flagging down a hostess they finally took our... More

I have heard from many people how great this place was and had a $200 gift card to go there and brought someone with me. Ordered the fillet mignon and I've never had to try so hard to cut through that kind of steak before. The sides were expensive and nothing special but still would have complemented a good cut...

Our family of 4 visited this restaurant for the first time and we're very disappointed. Our waitress seemed very disorganized and rushed and we had to wait 45 minutes after ordering for our food. They also forgot to bring one of our drinks and we also had to beg them to bring bread after 30 minutes waiting. When the food... More

I've been to many Ruth's Cris steakhouses around the country but the best cowboy ribeye is at the one in Fort Lauderdale. Just fantastic. It comes out sizzling and has awesome flavor. You won't be disappointed. Their chop salad is also excellent. Free valet is nice too.

The service and quality at this particular Ruth's Chris never disappoints!!!! We dine here often. The servers in the dining room are top notch. They go beyond any other Ruth's Chris if you are celebrating a special occasion - decorate the table, a card signed by the staff, a keepsake photo, and dessert. Impressive. Hands down best steakhouse in town.... More
