Our group of ten people asked that the bar bills be given separately to each couple and that all the meals be put on one check. The waiter had trouble doing that. It took him several attempts and finally with help from the manager it was done. Most of the food was good. Some steaks were over cooked and one... More

I want to be fair. Our server Kevin was really good and the food was also very good. However, I was paying with an electronic gift card as well as my credit card. The gift card was the problem. I was told the $100 card had been used at store 6, not the place we were eating, to the tune... More

We went to have a birthday celebration for my wife. Service was terrible slow. Server very explained that she did put our meal in a timely manner, but our meal was pushed back due to larger party. "The kitchen is really backed up" was her repose when she told us "your food will be out shortly" for the third time.... More

My BF took me here for Valentines Day & I was completely surprised!!! I've never been but had heard great things about it. Yes it's pricey but 110% worth it. I had a salad, steak, mashed potatoes & a glass of wine that was easily the best meal I've ever had. The service & food were phenomenal!!! Absolutely looking forward... More

Drive over to Ruth's Chris Steak House from 4:30 - 7 to experience absolutely delicious food at the bar at unbelievable prices. I had a steak sandwich, which was beef tenderloin. It was fabulous with a béarnaise sauce and a mere $8. The zucchini frites were to die for and the steak salad had steak kabobs, mushrooms on a skewer,... More

Always a treat to dine at Ruth Chris. The filet was done perfectly and the chicken cordon bleu was magnificent. The creamed spinach was delicious as were the mashed potatoes. The raspberry sorbet topped on this wonderful meal.

We've dined at Ruth's Chris many times, at this location three times. This last visit was disappointing. The salad was missing key ingredients and the steak was not done as ordered. I think that next time we willl try someplace else.

I am not a regular to Ruth's Chris. The old saying, "You get what you pay for" is perfect for this restaurant. Both the meal and the service were excellent.
