Ruth Chris doesn't disappoint!

The salads were perfect and the steaks exactly done to our specifications. Rarely do I get dessert... read more

This traveler and his wife went to this restaurant for our 42nd wedding anniversary, using a gift card from a colleague. The food was good. The service was more than adequate. This traveler's wife was happy with her steak (this traveler "so-so.) This place did have a piano bar upon entering- nice touch. This traveler did not see a means... More

You can choose to have the steak served on more butter! I know, I know it's terrible for your arteries, but oh so amazing for your taste buds. You might as well splurge once and awhile! The Au gratin potatoes were fabulous! You can get the sides to share or for your own, which is nice. I had a beverage... More

It is always better here when it is part of a package as a complete meal is provided: salad, entre, sides, and dessert. Normal patrons have to order ala carte.

My wife made a last minute reservation on a Monday night during a two day stay downtown. After she hung up the phone, I remembered that I didn't bring anything nicer than jeans and a collar shirt so I called them back to make sure that was acceptable. I was assured it was no problem. We took a relaxing walk... More

Whenever we want a really good steak, in a great atmosphere, Ruth's Chris NEVER disappoints. Service is always excellent, and the steaks are the best.....MUCH better than "that other place" down the street. Only the best, in ANY city.

The steak covered my plate, hot, sizzling, tender juicy steak. The salad wedge crispy and fresh. The service was great, enjoyed and will return

We love Ruth's Chris and this one in Indy has exceptional food and service. They are famous for their steaks so don't get anything else! We were celebrating our 15th Anniversary and our waiter Martin was exceptional and made us feel special.
