We have been to Ruth's Chris several times in Sarasota, but when we travel we go to the local well-regarded steakhouse, and Ruth's Chris has the best steak. Yes, it is pricey. Yes, the sides are a la carte, but they do have some selections available with sides and dessert on a prix fixe menu. The service at the Sarasota... More

Ruth's Chris is first class, food and service. They have a wonderful happy hour and make the most delicious Cosmo. Love the Filet bites and the Lobster! Keep up the great work

We took some friends from Tn. Who were visiting. We had the 11 oz filet, lamb chops and 12 oz. Ribeye. All were perfect. Great flavor and cooked to order. Also, the potato Au gratin, cream spin is were very good. The only negative was the asperagus. It was stale, barley worm and just plain bad. Was quite surprised it... More

Appetisers and cocktails for $7 during Happy Hour is a decent deal and a fun way to come here without spending a fortune. The bartender was a little frosty but otherwise service was ok.

I will start with a reminder for all those individuals reading this review who have not eaten at a Ruth's Chris before. If you want to get the true experience, you have to like butter. The outstanding steaks are swimming in it, and WOW it is good. I kept it simple during my last visit and did not order a... More

Ordered regular filet, medium, served raw, came back overcooked, can't believe steakhouse can't cook a filet. Drinks are way overpriced.

We made a stop with our very good friends for the evening early bird specials. Couldn't believe it! Decent portions and with true Ruth Chris quality and presentation. We were pleasantly surprised. The service was fantastic! Drinks delicious. Highly recommend this value. Get there early though, the bar area fills up fast and early. They will seat you at a... More

I have been to this location a few times with different people. Each time the service was consistently good as well as the food. The steaks are some of the best among the top restaurants. I put it up there with Bern's Steakhouse in Tampa and Michael's on East in Sarasota. If you are looking for a great steak locally... More

I have eaten at a few Ruth Chris but this one doesn't seem the same as the other the food taste different, will stick to going to the one in New Jersey. Steak always tastes odd. It's always busy and the service is always slow.
