When this neighborhood was still an urban outpost, this was a fine place and a wonderful venue. Now that the area has become a tourist haven, it is a poor substitute for what it was. I ordered a "classic" menu filet to be medium rare, and this skinny flat steak came out as medium. The staff was worse than the... More

We recently visited here and while the food was very good, the service was not what we remembered from our previous visit here in Chicago. We had our daughter (9 yr. old) with us and our waitress was busy waiting on other patrons and didn't seem thrilled to be serving a family. This was a bit of a let down,... More

The Ruths Chris on Dearborn in Chicago is a steak house in the theme of great Chicago steak houses. The ambiance is classic, the staff is extremely attentive, and the end result, the meal is exceptional. When entering we were seated on time. Our server was Jackie who did a wonderful job, while my wife and I had no special... More

Having sought out several Ruth's Chris steakhouses on our previous travels around the USA we thought we would try Chicago with friends who were with us. As we had all visited other restaurants in the chain we were well prepared for both the menu and extensive wine list and prices which are by no means cheap at $400+ for the... More

Ruth's Chris is one of my favorite restaurants. I don't eat beef or pork, but love lamb. Ruth's Chris has the best lamb chops. They come out on a sizzling plate, in a butter sauce & they are tender and very tasty. I definitely would recommend this restaurant!!

My husband and I had dinner at Ruth Chris on July 6th after our wedding. We did not have a traditional reception because we wanted the day to be non-traditional. It was my first time eating at the restaurant and I was Esstatic. The Spicy Lobster left us wanting more. The Porterhouse and New York Strip Steaks were cooked to... More

We selected this restaurant because Ruth Chris is supposed to be a guaranteed great steak......or so we thought. We began with an appetizer of bbq shrimp and they were blah and we didn't finish them. The salad and bread were very good. We split a meal that was a filet mignon with lobster tail and came with a salad, potato... More

This place was great for the entire family, for a dinner in Chigago. If you order the porterhouse, you will have a steak to remeber forever. The taste and the perfection was everything i wanted for a great steak dinner. I will be back!
