Dined here with a friend on a business trip. Very nice, large comfortable bar area. As typical with most Ruth Chris, the steaks and service are excellent. Convenient to airport hotels, an excellent choice for dinner.

As always, Flavorful items with EXCELLENT service to match. Ruth's Christ has been very consistent for us. We eat there fairly often and we have never had a problem. They always go out of their way to make us feel comfortable and happy. I read a not so good review posted by a long time lover of Ruth's Christ and... More

On my vacation went for an early dinner and the Hostess and another young man asked " can I help you"? As if we went in by mistake. This while the Hostess looked at my mother's shoes and muttered something to the male greeter. I thought more appropriate would have been a "good afternoon", and asked if we had reservations...

We have celebrated Thanksgiving at Ruth's Chirs for past 5 years. We have always gone to the Sarasota, FL location but we moved away form that area and decided to try the Tampa location this time. It was not a pleasant experience. We felt like cattle being moved along so they could get the next people to our table. We... More

Recently took my friend for a birthday celebration to Ruth's Chris because she had never been there. It was one of the best restaurant experiences I've had in a very long time. Everything was perfect. The ambiance and the service was outstanding. The salads and the sides were terrific as were the portions. But the best of all was the... More

We celebrated our 5 yr anniversary at the restaurant ... Our table was decorated with rose petals and later in the evening we received a free dessert. We started in the bar area, where our waiter was very attentive . Drinks were made well - not overbearing but not watered down. There is a small sushi station here in the... More

The resturante is across the street from my office. I decided to dine there alone yesterday. The valet parking and greeters at the hostess stand were very polite. The server was also very customer focused. The food was less than exciting. I ordered the filet and shrimp combo with sautéed spinach as a side. The filet was over cooked as... More

The steak filet and shrimp were perfectly cooked and delicious. The service was excellent. Expect to spend $60-$70 per person for a culinary delight.

I was in Tampa for business and I worked the whole day, but in the evening I decided to have a good dinner. My colleague and I are big steak eaters, so we used TripAdvisor to see what was in the the vicinity of our hotel. This stakehouse came to rescue. The food was excellent and the wine also, but...
