Even though my husband was in shorts and tshirt, ( a little underdressed...!) the service was excellent and we were even treated to a visit from the chef, George, who was delightful and bought the kids out complimentary cookies and ice cream at the end. The porterhouse steak for two was divine and plenty of it, exquisitely cooked with delicious... More

My partner and I had "date" night last evening. Our server was Maria - a pretty, young, short type with a wonderful sense of pride in her work. Folks, if you can, ask to be seated at a table where Maria will attend to your every desire. She really did make for a memorable dining experience. I ordered the enormous... More

We were in Tampa for the Florida Bar, which is a tense time, and a hungry time. The staff here were very professional and the ambience lovely. It was a wonderful end to a tense day. The steak and sides were all without fault and our waiter, Chris, was top notch. Thanks again!

I love steaks and they do it right here. I've had the cowboy ribeye and filet both were really good and cooked per request. The grill flavoring is tasty. I'm usually dinning at the bar area which is very pleasant, roomy and inviting. The bartenders, especially Chris are fantastic and if you go to this Ruth Chris you will find... More
