Had our work christmas party and was not disappointed. The steak melts in your mouth and the creamed spinach is heavenly. Topping it off with cream brûlée. Fantastic all around.

Dined here with 3 work colleagues, and I have to say the steak was amazing. I had the filet and it was so so tender and full of flavour! Loved the atmosphere in the restaurant and the service was first class. Almost let down by getting billed for an extra bottle of wine for which the waitress seemed unapologetic!! However... More

Ruth's Chris is pricey but so worth it. The steaks are tender and flavorful. They are serve sizzling on hot plates, in butter! We always get spinach, either creamed or sautéed in butter and one of the potato choices. Every thing is ala carte, but the sides are served family style for sharing. The service was great for our large... More

I thought I'd had steak before. I thought I'd had GOOD steak before. No, you haven't had an excellent meal until you've tried the filet and sweet potato casserole at Ruth's Chris. The steak came out on a plate sizzling hot. I ate every. single. bite of that beautiful piece of meat. Looking forward to returning for another exceptional meal... More

Have been to several in different cities. The steakhouses in Indianapolis pale in comparison to Ruth's. The others downtown were awful - especially St Elmos and the way they under-cook. Plus they are crowded and very pretentious. Ruth's Chris is a class act. They do not play games like Eddie's does. They turn up the heat when necessary. Great service... More

I will not go back. I'll continue to support St. Elmo and Oceanaire where is presented and prepared with some effort of class.
