If you enjoy a good steak and excellent red wine, then I would highly recommend Ruth's - ambiance and food and wine choices were very good. Great to go with friends or your spouse.

My Mom wanted a great steak for her birthday dinner, and after posting on Facebook, Ruth's Chris was the most popular suggestion. So we came. I indicated in the reservation it was my Mom's 75th Birthday. We were seated right away. The decor was nice, warm and inviting. I liked that they had the Classics dishes where everything was included.... More

Our family has been faithful to Ruth's Chris for many years but the last few times have failed. Tonight we began with a drink in the bar. My daughter ordered a Moscow mule $13 and it came in a large water glass. I asked about a copper mug and waitress just said " no, we dont have them." Well that... More

With so many steak houses to choose from it can be hard to measure them and choose a favourite. This one certainly seems to have a good combination of great service great food and a very nice atmosphere. It's well worth a visit and you won't be disappointed with what you get here. Try it.

Dinner for 4 on Sunday night. Valet parking, friendly greeting and we were brought directly to our table. The servers were outstanding, friendly and knowledgeable. I ordered the set menu and every course including the recommended wine was excellent. The 4 of us had steaks cooked differently and they all came out perfect and very flavorful. The salad, sides and... More

Had Christmas dinner here and was extremely happy with my choice. Originally fell in love with Ruth's at the Grand Rapids, MI location and have since moved to Chicago. Have gone to Ruth's roughly 4 times in Chicago and have always been disappointed. Needless to say, we were hesitant to go to any other location other than Grand Rapids. I... More

First time at a Ruth's Chris in several years, and was overall disappointed, compared to what I remembered and considering the price. Good: wine list, seafood tower appetizer, steak I ordered. Not so good: steak my son ordered (undercooked), presentation (plain white plates which don't maintain heat, no appetizer plates provided), service (waiter was present but not overly knowledgeable and...

Happy hour has some resonable entries at the bar, but expect the bar to be very busy as alot of people meet there for... More

My wife and I ate there twice on our last visit to Tampa, it's just that good. First things first, order the steak (for two). We liked ours rare plus. Second, match it with a bold red wine wine, finally relax and enjoy. They serve your steak on a 500 degree plate, so when it cools, ask for another and... More
