Visited Ruth Chris Steakhouse in Tampa last week on a Sunday afternoon around 5 o'clock with the intention of just having a drink and then visiting another restaurant next door for dinner. Sat at the bar and Joe the bartender mentioned that Ruth Chris had at least a half dozen happy hour food specials some of which were 50 per... More

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

Absolutely wonderful, I only give 4 stars instead of 5 because our steaks were not cooked properly. They were still delicious just not accurate. We had lobster bisque that was phenomenal. The bread was also fresh. Our server was very attentive. We both ordered filet and both said medium. My husbands was still mooing I swear but he did not... More

We go to Ruth's Chris for celebrations- this last visit was for my birthday. We have always had excellent service and food and this time was the same. Our waiter-Joe-was excellent. He timed courses perfectly, was friendly and helpful, and very attentive. Water glasses never went empty and dishes cleared quickly after each course. We can't say enough about their... More

We dine at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse for most special occasions, anniversaries, birthdays etc. When dining there, you are always made to feel special from the moment you are greeted by the hostesses to when you have finished dining and valet brings your car. We always expect and receive great food but on this occasion there was a manager - maitre... More

After hearing about the rave reviews for this steakhouse, I was seriously disappointed. My two sisters and I ate there on a Tuesday night, early enough for it not to be crowded, but late enough for there to be several tables of diners in our area. One of my sisters had a decent meal...she ordered the 6oz filet and lobster... More

I took my wife to Ruth Chris in Tampa. The manager, Tony came out to meet us and wish us happy anniversary. We had the lobster bisque which had delightful chunks of lobster. I had the ribeye done medium well. You could cut it with a fork. My wife had the New York prime and that too was perfect. The... More

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
