There was nothing unpleasant about our experience, we were just underwhelmed. The ambiance was not what I was expecting. We were celebrating our anniversary so I was looking forward to a more intimate evening. It was a bit louder than we expected and did not have a cozy feeling at all. The server was very attentive and the prices are... More

Ruths is great....all the food's great. I took my 84 year old mother there a couple years ago. She confided that it was the finest meal she had ever enjoyed. What I did not know then was that it would be our last meal together. She died several months later. These circumstances do make returning to RC bitter sweet but... More

All tho' the food was great and the service was excellent I was underwhelmed with the ambiance and what I would classify as too casual attire of the patrons of the establishment. When we arrived for our designated time of seating we had to wait briefly for out table but when we were seated all was well until that assistant... More

I have never been disappointed with the quality and the attention to detail at this restaurant. I do miss the Greek Salad but still am happy with the selection! You will not be disappointed here!

We have been to this chain in Annapolis, Maryland; San Juan, Puerto Rico; Cancun, Mexico; and Detroit, Michigan. We love the Ruth's Chris in Grand Rapids, Michigan above all of them. The food is always fantastic along with the service and ambience!

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
