The Best!!

I probably would give a 4.5 if that was possible but I'll stick to the 5 for now. The meal: Incredible. We were celebrating a birthday so we started with a bottle of bubbles in the bar. Sat with Chris, a really top notch bartender. Professional yet fun and engaging, one of the best I've... read more

We had the pleasure of spending Superbowl Sunday at the bar at Ruth Chris which turned out to be a lovely experience. We were treated to well spoken waiters about the wine list; offered opinions about the sandwiches which turned out to be accurate, and had a great time watching the game with other football loving diners and the wait...

I don't have a Ruth's Chris anywhere near my hometown but after eating at one in the past, I planned my trip to Tampa around finding a hotel that was nearby to this restaurant. I do not regret it in the least. We had an amazing meal that was so delicious, the atmosphere was perfect, and I have never had... More

We have always found the food to be consistently delicious at Ruth's Chris in any city we visit. Sunday night we picked up a guest at the airport and "dropped" in for dinner. Sadly the table we were given was next to the kitchen and bathroom traffic. We did not have reservations so we remained silent. The service was attentive... More

I was in town on business and had a seat at the bar. I ended up chatting with the gentleman next to me for a good part of the night. The bartender (I'm pretty sure his name was John) was extremely nice and had personality. He joked around with me, but not to the point where it was annoying. He... More

I've eaten here twice, and the steak is simply the best. Bern's has the reputation and is a unique experience, but when it comes to the flavor of steak, Ruth's Chris is tops. Service is impeccable. Valet parking is free. The menu is classic. It is pricey but still cheaper than Bern's. Eat at both and you'll understand -- Bern's... More

Just walking into Ruth's and catching the fragrance of butter on hot steak is incomparable... and then dining on steak and the delicious sides... ahhhh. Wherever I go in the US, I always look forward to dinner at Ruth's and am never disappointed with the quality of the food or the service.

Had a good experience here. Celebrated 1rst year anniversary here. Staff was friendly, steaks was delicious, and sides was huge. Worth the money, and enjoyed the fine dining experience.

We went to Ruth's Chris to celebrate our 40th anniversary, and greatly enjoyed our meal, including the delicious signature steaks! However, the evening was a bit dampened by the unfriendly attitudes and surly faces of the valet parking staff.

On a business trip to Tampa, I stayed right behind Ruth Chris at the Hyatt Place Hotel and walked over for a cocktail. The pleasant surprise at the bar was some good sushi. I had the Sashimi plate which was excellent. Great service and pleasant bartenders.
