Great Happy hour meal --

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... read 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

We went to RC for Valentines Day this year, they were extremely busy but the staff was incredibly attentive, friendly and personable. I have to say Josh and Dupree made our night a fantastic one. The food was spectacular, the steaks were soft, moist and cooked to perfection. The creme burle was out of this world! We'll definitely be back... More

We had initially planned on having a quiet fine dining experience at Grille 66 due to the outstanding ratings on Tripadvisor. Unfortunately an upscale reserved dining experience it was not. Shortly after being seated we realized we were adjacent to two large raucous parties of men. Our request for a quieter table proved fruitless, so we left. We quickly called... More

You will find the steaks here to be some of the best you have ever had. We had the Filet Mignon with the mashed potatoes and creamed spinach and overall the meal was truly superior. The Filet was very tasty and so very tender. The service was good and attentive. We will surely return. They have quite a few chain... More

Upon first walking into this restaurant it feels like a cheesecake or chilis, the front area lacks any form of elegance. The host team were dressed ok but lacked any professional knack - they just appeared to to be leftovers of another more elegant restaurant. The price this location charges for food versus the quality and decor is almost insulting.... More

This is the only steak house I've been to that is consistent in it's excellency, you can count on it. No need to worry about the chef being off or not in his game, the quality of the food including the service remains a constant and I love that about this place. Worth the price

I visited this restaurant on 9th January 2015 accompanied by three friends. We all agreed that the filet mignon was sensational and the best that we had encountered at any restaurant during our recent 2 week stay in Fort Lauderdale. Service was very professional albeit a little mechanical and lacking the warmth that we encountered at some other venues. Nevertheless... More

I hate to give this place a bad review because I love the one in Mizner Park in Boca Raton but this one Sucked terribly. Our server was wonderful and accommodating and our mixed cocktails were delicious and well made but the food was terrible. Went on Christmas eve, what a shame it was so disappointing. It wasn't crowded at... More
