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

Had very nice dinner at Steak House. Nice and quick stuff. Great manager. Good food. And surprisingly our crab cakes were the best! I think they contained 99 % of real blue crab ! Really enjoyed it !! Nice wine selection.

This is off the beaten path, so it lacks the beach or view. We stopped in for a quick bite and drink en route home. The burger was fabulous, the drinks were perfect, the fries abundant and crispy. In brief - it was just great and a bargain. Go early, the place was jumping on a Thursday night (really afternoon).... More

After going to a Happy Hour here where the food was very good, I was surprised and very disappointed by the complete meal during a financial seminar there. Of the 5 people at the table, one ordered filet which looked great and according to her, was great. 4 of us ordered the ribeye steak. The person who ordered it medium... More

We've dined at this Ruth Chris many times over the years for special occasions. Upon our arrival we received a warm hello from host and my lady was given a long stem Rose. Our favorite table was ready and our server was there right away. Manager came by to say hello and welcome us back. We both ordered from the... More
