Fantastic food and Flawless Service

My husband and I ate here prior to a show at DeVos Performance Hall. It was our first time at this restaurant. Yes, it is expensive, but if you want a wonderful meal with perfect service it is worth it. We enjoyed every minute of our 2 hour meal! My husband had a steak and I had salmon. Both... read more

Went in for our anniversary tonight. The steaks (petite filet and NY strip with bleu cheese crust) were fantastic! Service is impeccable here, from start to finish! They like to know when you're celebrating, and they ensure the occasion is made special. So much attention to detail! Expect to drop a buck fifty, but it's worth it for a nice... More

Sadly this was my biggest disappointment in a Ruth''s Chris. So so salad, stone cold and undercooked potato, only plus was a very good steak. Still very underwhelming.

Dear Valued Guest, I am sorry to hear that our food did not deliver throughout your experience. I am happy the flagship steak met your standards but we pride ourselves on the quality and flavor of product across all courses. This is definitely not the experience that we so pride ourselves on. I encourage you to give us another try... More

The steaks served are top notch and they are specially prepared in 1800 degree ovens (seared) to make them so juicy. The side dishes like sweet potato casserole or broccoli augratin are unique and so tasty. I can't say enough about Ruth's Chris. It is pricey, but for a special occasion, well worth it.

Perhaps it was a bad night. Beef is the specialty of the house. How is it possible that neither of our steaks was prepared as ordered. The server showed no concern but did offer to return it to the kitchen It returned overcooked and unacceptable. We will try another place next time. Have not had that problem at other Ruth's...

Had a great dining experience at Ruth's. Our steaks were done to perfection and the atmosphere was inviting. Our service was outstanding and we really enjoyed our server, Paul, who made our time at the restaurant so enjoyable! If you are looking for a special dinner out in GR, consider Ruth Chris!

Stayed in Amway and Ruth's Chris was accessible from the hotel without going outside. We were a party of 2 and did not feel like having a big dinner. We ordered the fried calamari from the appetizer menu, sautéed mushrooms, sautéed spinach, sweet potatoes casserole and it was plenty of food for two people. We could not finish the dishes... More

We stayed at the JW Marriott and could walk to the restaurant without going outside which was perfect on the snowy night. The waiter brought our drinks promptly but gave us a chance to unwind and talk before taking our order. I was not particularly hungry but devoured the ribeye as it was seasoned perfectly. We split a salad and... More
