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

We had dinner at Ruth's Chris Steak House last night. I have been having extensive dental work and hadn't had meat in 2 years so this was a big deal. We have a home in NYC with 2 major steakhouses within 5 blocks. When I looked at Ruth's Chris's prices I saw they were equal to NYC prices -- BUT... More

Quality of service and food not up to par with Ruth Chris standards. Ordered steak medium well and came out rare. Never good to send steak back, but this steak returned burnt to a crisp. The kids' chicken nuggets were too tough to even chew. Table was not kept clean. Just not the same Ruth Chris I am used to.

Expect excellent service, great formal decor with a relaxed warmth, polite informative waiter and absolutely best food. A la cart side dishes are best to split due to size . Do not get the crab cake if you are from north eastern shore. Not enough lump crab and too many fillers.

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.
