A Great Happy Hour

The happy hour at Ruth's Chris steak house is fabulous. It's only in the small bar area and we have never been there during the really busy season, but it's busy even in the off season. It's Mon thru Sat. from 4:30 til 7 and a small menu of various specialties and specialty drinks are available... read more

The Happy Hour selection of food and drinks is excellent! The food portions were just right for my wife and me and we left with no room for dinner. The bartender was very solicitous and helpful.

Great food. You can pick and choose what you want as a meal or separately. The food is pricey but very good

Ruth's Chris: predictable in the most positive sense of the word. Quality of food, preparation and service is predictably excellent. We learned something new this time: Pittsburg preparation of the steaks. Extra crusty on the outside due to extra heat. And we loved it, and will go for it next time again. Mark was the waiter who explained this to... More

Sometimes you just want a great steak and lady night was one of them. Unfortunately we should have gone somewhere else. My filet had little flavor was gristley and tough. I know I could have sent it back but we were a party of four and besides the vegetables would have gotten cold. The service was just weird for a... More

About one year ago, 6/2014, my now fiance and I went to dinner at this establishment. We had a nice time but we only sat at the bar for drinks and appetizers. Also on this evening, he proposed. So we decided tonight to go back and enjoy their special of 3 courses for $43.95. We got seated right away but... More

My husband and I visited the restaurant this evening and had a superb meal. The Caesar salads were delicious and we both had the filet mignon which were amazing. Our server was Ryan and he was excellent. All in all it was perfect, a great evening.

This was one of our favorite restaurants - super dining room, great food and attentive, friendly staff. The consistency of the experience was comforting - you always knew you would get what you expected and were willing to pay a few bucks extra for the privilege. If you didn't have time for the three courses, the bar was equally enjoyable.... More

This restaurant serves one of the best steaks I've ever had... cooked to perfection in 500 degrees in butter the taste is just amazing. Their Ruth's Chris chopped salad is to die for, and their calamari appetiser was just delicious. The service was a little too slow tonight, but all in all I love this restaurant and if you love...

The great service started at the front door when the valet greeted us with a big smile..and the great service continued with the reception and continued all night. Our daughter wanted this to be a great experience for us and it worked. Our steaks were superb as we all chose the classic 3 course meal...my steak was accompanied with a... More
