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

We have gone to Ruthie D's regularly since it opened. Chef Pierre does a fabulous job of creating wonderful food. The ambiance is warm and friendly. The food flavors and quality can't be beat! Christophe, the bartender, is amazing.

Such a relaxing atmosphere and the best food at the lake. It is elegant yet very down to earth. I would feel comfortable in any attire. The service was beyond great especially since our server was Lucretia. She was most helpful and always available. The chef visited to make sure our dinner was to our liking which was unexpected but... More

We sat in the covered patio and the view and meal were fabulous. Had a delicious ahi tuna appetizer creatively prepared. Also had a pork and fish dish. .Both cooked perfectly. Nice reasonable wine selections too. Wait staff was very attentive. Five stars!

We happened upon Ruthie D's, and really enjoyed our experience. The steak was very tender and flavorful, and the baked potato was fluffy and moist, and big enough to feed an army! Good menu selection--there were fish, sandwich, and pasta options available, as well as seafood and steaks. We appreciated our efficient and very friendly server, Lucretia. The view from... More

We come to the Lake several times a year and always have Ruthie D.s on our list of restaurants we want to visit. Never have been disappointed in our food and almost always very pleased. Chef Pierre is willing to do anything to please and service by Lucretia was just what we needed when our family visited this weekend -... More

Went there with family of 5 on Thursday July 24 and both the food and service were average. The best thing was the views from the screened in deck. There are better choices in our opinion.

Ruthie D's is our favorite restaurant at the lake. We visit the lake four to five times a year and we always eat at least once here. If we only have one night, Ruthie D's is where we go. The food is outstanding. The chef is truly talented. We have never had a bad meal or even an ok meal.... More
