our experience couldn't have been more opposite than the most recent reviews. We went to Ruth's Chris for our wedding anniversary while on vacation. Our server, Sue and the entire staff went out of their way to make the evening very special. The salad, filets, shrimp, side, desserts were all prepared perfectly. The timing and attention to detail was fantastic.... More

OK. the first FIVE times I let it go with promises they would "correct" the problem. Last night was #6 and has inspired this review. I'm an admitted wimpy eater and canNOT stand spices or seasoning or onions or pickles! Last night we stopped by for the happy hour special and I got half way through my fabulous burger before...

I just came back from Ruth Chris in Sarasota. The prime rib was tough and not good. I asked for crispy fries and they were soggy. I told the host at the front door and all he said was thank you for telling me. I have been there a lot of times over the years. This was the last time... More

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
