As always absolutely flawless. We decided to go to Ruth's Chris Steakhouse at the last minute and sit in the bar area so we could have a light meal because we had been eating our way through Michigan. Well it all began with this nice bottle of 2008 Chateau de Pez...a delightful yet young Saint-Estephe and a Moscow Mule that... More

I was staying at the Amway Grand Hotel in Grand Rapids, and had always wanted to try a Ruth's Chris, and there it was, right in the hotel. So two business associates and I had dinner together there. What a treat! The food was absolutely incredible. I had the petite filet, cooked medium. It was tender, flavorful, cooked just right.... More

We were on the road and coming in late. Called the restaurant to tell them we would like the last reservation and would do our best to be on time. They saw 2 weary travelers arrive and could not have been nicer and more accommodating to us. Super service and the food was outstanding.

We had a terrific meal at Ruth Chris in Grand Rapids. The steaks, as to be expected were superb and the local side of fresh green beans were crisp, flavorful and delicious too. Our server, Kelly, was first rate; smart, helpful and personable. The restaurant was lovely and our large party of 10 was treated beautifully. Would return again with... More

If you want to indulge yourself, this is the place to do it in. From the entry, to the table, to the service, to the food. It is Five Star! The tenderloin is an experience you will level forget, with the butter dripping down the sides, to the potato that is a meal in itself, to the desert offerings (... More

We thoroughly enjoy our dinners at Ruth's Chris, eating there every year to celebrate our anniversary. The service is always impeccable and the food amazing. The Ribeye steaks are in a word, heavenly. We love to grill and usually don't order steaks when dining out but Ruth's Chris is the exception. Because it really is all about the steak. While... More

Visited recently because I was staying in the hotel. I give them a lower rating because I am a vegetarian and their sides were only mediocre. So if that is the case for you, it might be better to skip this dining option. Enjoyed the festive atmosphere (plenty weddings)- very expensive- even for veggies- which would have been fine if...

There's a sign over the bar in The Ranchman's in Calgary that says 'The West Wasn't won On Lettuce'. It's a homage to the steak, the fare of the tough guy, the pioneer, the cowboy. You are either a salad or a steak kind of fellow. I'm generally the former but, after a nine hour drive, Ruth's Chris Steak House... More

My husband and I celebrated our fifteenth anniversary by staying at The Amway Grand Hotel. We had dinner at Ruth's Chris. Our server was Benjamin and he was fabulous. I don't remember his assistant's name but he was excellent as well. The assistant was being promoted and I can see why. We both ordered the petite filet. Benjamin helped us... More

Yep, I really don't like steak. This was a special event in a private room, though, and the menu choices were steak, lamb or salmon. I had the salmon with fennel and it was perfect. 2.5 inches thick and perfectly cooked, that's hard to do when the cut is so thick. Service was great, almost too fast. The appetizers were... More
