I was staying at the Hampton Inn around the corner and just wanted to have a small meal in a friendly place. I sure found it in Ruth Chris Steak House. Their regular meals were higher priced than would work for me in that situation, but they had a great Happy Hour menu. I had a great plate with steak,... More

We took a good customer here for dinner and reserved the private room. We had 17 people for dinner and it was fabulous. They allowed us to project our customers logo on their tv. Customize the menus with their logos as we'll. the appetizers were tasty, the filets we ordered were perfect and the cheesecake deserts they brought out were... More

Ate at the bar area and had really great service. You can't beat the sizzling filet on its hot plate and a large portion of shoestring fries. Catch a game at the bar area along with a really great steak and you won't be disappointed.

Plates were way too hot at 550 degrees. Surprise they take the chance with their steaks and patrons. We were scared to reach over for our drinks after servers told us temperature. Be careful out there. Once you get a burn it lasts a long time. Even swallowing hot food is dangerous. Steak was just ok. Will not go again.... More

Three of us went to Ruth's Chris in Tampa and we all ordered the filet mignon. We usually do this when we go to a high end steak house like Morton's, Capital Grill or a local place not part of a restaurant group. You are typically assured of getting a high quality steak at any of the above restaurants but... More

Went with a group of 5 on a weeknight. Great steak, yummy sides, attentive staff. Wine purchase cost a star. Wine list is ok, but they did not have our first two choices. Should have been more tuned to this oversight. We then made a third choice, then something else that was previously unavailable was located. Never saw a manager... More

This was my first time at the Tampa RC, but they upheld the company standards when I recently went there on a Sunday evening. I don't eat a lot of steak, but when I want a real good piece of meat I go to RC and get a ribeye. My nephew and I both had ribeye, both very good! We... More

Had dinner at Ruth's Chris in Tampa and it was great in Ruth's Chris' style. Started dinner with the wedge salad with plenty of blue cheese! My son and I each had the T-bone steak while my wife opted for the petite filet; all well prepared and tasty! Ordered sides of cream spinach and asparagus. Followed meal with shared desserts... More

First time at Ruth's came with a high price with an average meal. If you are watching your salt intake, I don't recommend dining here. The steaks and shrimp flavours were lost under heavy spices and sauces. My large shrimp were buried in mashed potatoes vs set lightly on top, and as an afterthought, I'd of preferred rice. One of...
