Our experience at Ruthie D's was so memorable! The special of filet tips, pasta and blue cheese was absolutely divine! Service was well paced and informative even with another table demanding a lot of attention. The dining room is nicely appointed and in all it made for a very very fine evening.

We had a great meal here Saturday evening. The service was spot on. My husband had the shrimp fettucini alfredo...totally yum. I had the fried chicken...fabulous. I did have to send it back as it wasnt cooked all the way. Kind of surprised me as this is one of their specialties...thought they would have it down.

We have been patrons of Ruthie D's since they opened and have never had a bad meal or service. I usually get a past dish but the last time we were there the waitress suggested the fried chicken. It was the BEST fried chicken I have ever eaten. Not greasy and seasoned to perfection. My husband normally gets a steak... More

We eat out often - sometimes in the mood for casual - sometimes fine dining. Ruthie D has a wide variety of both combined with exceptional service. Hands down the best restaurant at the lake. I love the lounge this time of the year - fireplace is a nice touch to happy hour.

My husband and I had a wonderful date night. His steak was excellent, and my chicken marsala was perfect. Will definitely visit again!

Ruthie D's is near my home which is plus for me, but the real reason I go regularly is the combination of warm, caring service, the imaginative menu and delicious food. Chef Pierre is the best!

We decided to eat dinner here the first night of our vacation because it was nearby where we were staying. The hostess took us through a very interestingly decorated restaurant and out onto the screened porch where we could see the lake at the bottom of the hill. We ordered the Onion Strings as an appetizer and it was probably... More

We read some reviews and were impressed, so we went to enjoy an evening meal in what seemed to be a really nice place. The bar where we went first was staffed by a very helpful and caring young lady who was very helpful and attentive, enough that we even talked about how good she was whilst we had our... More
