A classic steakhouse in a great venue!

Service was impeccable, the food divine, and the atmosphere was electric. Located inside the Amway Grand Hotel, this Ruth Chris Steakhouse has a certain "air" about it. Steaks were exquisite, but the only criticism one can make is that the tables are far too close to one another.

Place as itself is very nice. We waited too long for menu and for ordered drinks and wine and for bread as well (: The crab cakes were fine, but tasted as my home-made budget tuna patties, but I liked them. Steaks are excellent, very good and tender meat, but too much butter. I suggest to ask the guests, if... More

This restaurant is not for the tight budget but if you are looking for an honest to goodness, melt in your mouth piece of steak, they've got. Worth every penny.

My first and only meal here was for business with a small group of colleagues. We had dinner on a Wednesday evening after work. I will say up front that everything on the menu is expensive, and one has to expect that. But, having a place like Ruth's Chris Steak House in Grand Rapids gives us the sort of fine... More

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. Normally, not a big deal... 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....

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...
