We have been here several times. Food is always great, and a lovely atmosphere. It feels like fine dining which is what I enjoy when we go out for dinner. They never disappoint!! The steaks are great, prime rib outstanding and we love the Jalapeño grits.

Great atmosphere. Wonderful view of the lake. Everyone enjoyed their food. Great menu; seafood, pork, beef. Only drawback; the service. No one seem particularly happy to see us. The hostess seemed bothered; the waiter, unfortunately seemed poorly trained.

We go for happy hour & appetizers at the bar. Dinners are a little pricey. Good views if you are seated close to a window in the restaurant area.

Ruthie D's is a really nice restaurant for any occasion. They have a good happy hour during the week but the actual dining is what attracts us. We feel as if we are "dining" and not just eating. Extensive menu of steaks, fish and chicken. Outdoor dining also available.

My wife and I had Fettechini Alfredo with Shrimp. It is probably the best Fettechini we have eaten. The shrimp were delicious. The other family members had steak or prime rib. Their food was equally good. Great service and the waitress watched over us throughout the meal. The atmosphere is great. A great place for special occasions. This restaurant is... More

Everything we tasted was delicious from the escargot, caesar salad, french onion soup to the ribeye and prime rib. My fiance said his bloody mary was the best he had in some time. The service was impeccable!

At my request, I was seated on the screened in porch which has a nice view of the lake. Service was attentive and well-informed. The soup that day was roasted red pepper-just a hint of spice and excellent. I ordered fried chicken based upon other reviews. I found it a bit greasy but it tasted like homemade and four pieces...

We decided to give Ruthie D's a try tonight for dinner. We were very pleasantly surprised! Everyone at the table loved their meal. I had the prime rib special and was it ever stellar! I shared with everyone at the table because it was sooo good. It was a 12 ounce prime rib with all the fixings for $27. One... More

On a nice day you can sit out on a veranda overlooking the lake and the view is awesome. Food is some of the best in the area.
