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

Once the old 1913 Room in the bottom of the Amway Grand Plaza, Ruth's Chris Steakhouse can lay claim to being one of the finest restaurants in West Michigan. Our beautiful view looked down onto Rosa Park where ice skaters whisked and twirled through the fading light, and we watched Christmas lights flash on and twinkle in the December chill.... More

The environment is one of servers running about as you get the impression they would like to turn the table ASAP. That said, this is the best steak in Grand Rapids

I've eaten here a few times and, each time, I've been very happy with the service and food. The atmosphere is traditional steak house. The bar area has a slight retro feel (think Mad Men...I could totally see Roger and Don having a cocktail at the tables with red leather chairs). The dining area is nice, but nothing to write...

Though Im a vegetarian eating at a steak house there was still great options for me (business meeting). The wine selection is also great as well as the service. They were on top of everything and made it a great evening.
