Valentine's Day Dinner

This was the third time we dined here. It's very expensive so we normally only eat at RC on special occasions. I had the petite fillet and shrimp and whereas, on past visits, it would be tender with each bite, I actually found some fatty parts and didn't eat a few pieces because of this.

This business dinner was my first visit to a Ruth's Chris franchise - on my own dime, the steak house formula is low on my list, and on this sample of one, it did not move up a notch. Charming room, apparently in a previous life it was a much-loved local restaurant, with a warm ambiance on a Wednesday night... More

The steak was very good but the sides pedestrian. The crab cakes were plain, the lobster bisque tasted like it was out of a can. In other words it was just about like any other chain steakhouse but 3 times the price. The waiter didn't enunciate, so was hard to understand and his helper dragged his feet everywhere he walked....

Located in the Amway Grand Hotel in Grand Rapids, Ruth's Chris steakhouse is everything you'd expect it to be. We experience some of the finest steaks ever had, impeccable service with multiple waiters attending to each table and a first class steakhouse atmosphere. They have an extensive wine selection including both reasonably priced and high and options. highly recommend a... More

We had our 30th wedding anniversary dinner here. Our 1st time at Ruth's Chris. We had reservations for 8pm on Friday. It was quite busy and we needed to sit by the beautiful fountain inside the historic Pantlind hotel wing while they prepared our table. When we got to our table it was covered with rose petals. Very nice. We... More

Great steaks, but probably not the best steaks. Service was excellent. The tables are too close together for my taste.

We are big fans on Ruth's Chris since we started eating here in 1978 in Houston. We have eaten in them in at least 10 cities, including Cancun. The service is always first rate, the steaks are large, excellent, and served exactly the way you require. They all are "steak house" designed and decorated. Yes, they are expensive, but you...

Great food, service and atmosphere. Great steak. Everything was timed perfectly as well by our server. It is definitely worth the money. What more can one ask for?

I dined here for a business lunch which was probably why I couldn't enjoy it much. I hate eating and talking a lot, so I just ordered a Caesar salad with shrimp. Service was fine. Restaurant seemed slow. It is in a great location in the heart of downtown. I'd go again for business, but not on my own.

Hello, Thank you for you review as we want to make sure the guests attending private events get to enjoy our service and food just the same as in the main dining room. We are closed for lunch hence the slow atmosphere as your event was fully private. We hope you choose to join us for our lively dinner service.... More

When we made our reservation, I made sure to let the hostess know that we’d be dining with a toddler. Going in with a toddler, we were a little apprehensive because we thought he would be too loud and disturb other guests. The service at the restaurant was so awesome that they sat us in a louder section of the... More
