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.

I vacationed in Florida for 2 weeks and was taken to Ruth's Chris for my 40th Birthday Dinner. Three of us ordered Filet Mignon cooked medium and the forth Leg of Lamb medium rare. Mine was the only one whose meal was cooked right. Of the other 2 steaks, one was medium rare and the other was cold in the... More

I have been to Ruth Chris Steakhouse just twice & although I am a vegetarian I just loved their Happy Hour:) Delicious choices for me plus a wonderful wine selection although a little pricey! The bar is a great place to meet for a chat or to just enjoy a relaxed evening depending on the time of day of course!... More

This Ruths Chris has been around in Sarasota at least 12 years, and is consistently excellent. We have a hard time ordering anything but filet mignon or strip steaks, but last week I had a fabulous veal chop, that was one of the best ever!! I have had great fish and seafood as well, and their chopped salad is divine.... More

Happy hour good food and great drinks at reasonable prices. Only down side it's crowded and most tables are for six, so when all tables are full they pair you strangers.

I was invited to Ruth Chris steak house by friends and could not wait to go and enjoy a dining experience I had heard so much about. The service was impeccable, the restaurant immaculate and I could hardly wait to place my order. The menu had no prices, o.k., but I later found out the price of my meal, the... More

Ruth Chris was our place to go for fine dining on very special occasions. It is pricey but the food has always been great. However, on our last visit --- they now have a happy hour cheap menu (to compete with another fine dining restaurant in town). This has downgraded this restaurant so much that we probably will not return.... More
