Had an excellent lunch there! We had just arrived in Chicago, and the four of us (wife, kids and I) were dying to eat something. Since it was very cold outside, and the restaurant was within walking distance from our hotel, we hopped in, and what a pleasant surprise! Great accomodations, polite and helpful servers and quality food served somewhat... More

Seriously, why go to Ruth's when in Chicago? Because it's worth it. We were there for a week, did a few but I missed the Creamed Spinach, the Sweet potato casserole and of course the perfect filet. Open up with a wedge salad and pair with a decanted bottle of solid Duckhorn Cab and this makes for a pretty cool... More

When you visit the US one of the highlights is eating really good steak; which is exactly what you get at Ruth's Chris. Our waiter, Christian was very helpful and noticing our accents asked my husband to describe how he wanted his steak as British and US 'medium' is a little different. What was served was perfect. I had the... More

Chicago's Ruth's Chris is a serious steakhouse in a city known for serious steakhouses. When I am alone, I like to eat at the bar and the bar here runs on forever. Comfortable bar seats, and professional bartenders at your service, pouring generous libations of your choice. A really terrific wine list, with some brilliant California selections. The decor and...

So I've dined at this restaurant more times than I can count. However, they do get a bit of bad reviews for how they treat minorities. I went the other day for my cousin's birthday dinner... the manager asked us to leave and said we smelled of marijuana- NOT TRUE. Turns out that the lobby was packed and it was... More

My girlfriend and I had dinner at Ruth Chris's after a show in Chicago- we both had great steak dinners. Food was awesome but sadly the service was less than great. We had a table in the bar and the waitress seem like she was more interested in serving a couple of large tables in the dining room.

I normally go to the Troy, MI location, but I was on a weekend trip with my husband, so we tried this location. Every year we go to Ruth's Chris for our anniversary. It's a tradition of ours. This location charges for their valet and we've not experienced that at other locations. Also every other visit we've had on our... More

After ordering the Cowboy Ribeye, I began eating bread and butter. When my steak came, I forgot to use my steak knife until I was about halfway done. Now that's what I call a tender cut!!

There were 6 of us celebrating my mother-in-laws retirement. Most of us had the Caeser salad and it was delicious. My steak was a good cut and cooked to my liking but my husband's steak had a few fatty/chewy spots and not as great as he remembers. The mixed drinks were quite pricey. The service and atmosphere was great though.
