Delicious Business Dinner

Brought a client to dinner here. The ambiance was superb, as was the staff. I had the cowboy cut ribeye, and it was delicious. Our server was respectful, and let us take our time with the meal. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a great place to eat in downtown Indy!

We were a group of seven with reservations at 6:45 at the Ironworks Ruth's Chris location. Jonas was an excellent, attentive server. We were seated at a second floor table as soon as we arrived. The order for the three in our family was the Porterhouse for 2 (92.00), 1/2 pound Crab Legs (20.00), and Petite Filet (39.50). A loaded... More

In town for Final Four. Booked on Open Table. No wait. Great service from Mike. Steak and salad good as always. Place was packed with people waiting for tables. Seemed like they were geared up for the crowd and service was superb at all the tables around us. Impressive.

Three of us tried the new Ironworks location for the Northside Nights promotion. The food was excellent as was the service. The place is huge !! It also has a large patio with very tall heaters. We wanted to reserve one of their private rooms for Christmas but they were already booked- nine months in advance !! I would highly... More

The best steaks anywhere! The service is excellent and genuine...no phony attitudes here. The sides are excellent, fresh tasting. For that special event/day, worth every penny! One issue, we had reserved one special table...it was set for our party of six...and as we were about to be led to that table, someone (obviously more important than us) asked for that... More

Ruth's Chris is always a favorite place for a special occasion dinner. We haven't ever had a bad dinner there. And the new location is beautiful. So nice to go when the weather is good so you can dine outside!

This place nailed it. Each year we do a large dinner in Indy during February. We have tried St Elmo's and Weber Grill in the past. This place put them to shame. Food was amazing. Nothing more to say. I hope we get to go back here next year.
