This was our first visit to any Ruth Chris Steak House, but it won't be our last. I had read articles about prices and figured it wasn't worth it, but we tried their Happy Hour specials and had great manhattans and ate a burger, steak sandwich, and crab BLT. The first two came with French fries... read more

12 oz rib eye was sizzling hot and cooked to perfection. Salmon was also cooked just right. Side Mac and cheese wasn't wonderful but mashed potatoes and salads were very good. Our empty plates remained on the table for far too long. The wait staff was friendly and helpful. Chocolate dessert was delicious.

We had the most beautiful birthday celebration for my daughter in-law. The service and the special birthday decorations were so outstanding there are not words to describe. Thanks you all so much, the food was also out of this world.

Every couple of months i have occasion to dine at Ruth Chris in Sarasota Florida. I found it to be a bit pricey but the food was superb. The atmosphere is that of an upscale steakhouse. You are not rushed to order or turn over the table. The steak was very tasty and done to perfection. The sides were plentiful... More

I frequent this restaurant several times per month and they never fail to impress me. From the moment I walk in (Jennifer) greets me with a smile and I'm seated almost immediately. The food is to die for, favorite app. Spicy Lobster!!

I went to Ruth's Chris for their monthly special dinner (January was Bacon Me Crazy Dinner. Five courses with wine pairings. Bacon somewhere in every course.). While waiting in the reception area to be seated you notice a sign -- prominently displayed -- stating that "PROPER ATTIRE" is required. As one would expect in an up-scale steak house. The dinner...

Great steaks, just a little pricey. Servers are ok, they do have a full bar. Much better food quality than Outback, equal to Longhorn.

We have been going to this Ruth's Chris for years. Went recently on a weekday evening for happy hour in the bar. There were no tables available so the host offered to put our name on the waiting list. After waiting about 45 minutes we were told that we were the next to be seated. However, before we were seated... More

We had reservations at the Sarasota Ruth's Chris for christmas Day. Had them for 3 weeks. Got there and the wait was going to be at least 30 minutes. Luckily found a bistro table in the bar and took it. 20 minutes before water and napkins, another 20 minutes before drink order. Finally got steaks, filet was full of fat,... More
