Went here to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We did not make a reservation as it was spur of the moment but they were able to accommodate us after only waiting a few minutes. Our waiter was nice but he was real sneaky about getting us to order the more expensive drinks and dishes. He started out by telling us the... More

I had received a $200 gift certificate for my birthday. During the winter, I live in Naples, FL and the summers in NJ. I knew that I could use the certificate in either location. We are now in a Cranbury, NJ, so decided to go to the Plainsboro location (everyone in this area likes to say they are located in... More

I try to visit this restaurant atleast once a month. There happy hour deals are the best. For 7$ you can get a steak sandwich with fries. The steak on the sandwich is Filet mignon. The spicy fried lobster is to die for. Happy hour is 4 to 7 Monday thru Thursday.

Have eaten at Ruth's in Princeton 30 times over the last 3 years. Usually terrific. Tonight was not their best steak effort. Had a cocktail with 4 other friends in bar. Was crowded, however, was very good service. Dining room was also jammed. Good service!!! Bone in rib eye came out overcooked on a medium rare order. Was replaced, however,... More

This was far and away the worst Ruth Chris and steakhouse that my wife and I ever visited. I ordered a steak prepared medium and after a very long wait I was served a charred piece of nothing tasting like a typical Ruth Chris porterhouse steak. The waiter was aloof and inattentive. Overall a waste of money and dreadful experience.... More

Quite often we head over to Ruth Chris for Happy Hour. It is a great place to meet with friends. Food and drinks are great - service is not so good. The bar area always seems to be short-staffed during the "rush". Highly recommend, however, plan for slow service

We started with a good chuckle...the restaurant is in the middle of a mostly empty parking lot, we parked in a far empty corner and then saw the valet run across many, many empty spots to tell us it was valet only and take our keys. Eno Terra and Peacock and Elements have valet because they really need it, I'm... More

I Had a business dinner here in a private room for 14 people. Petite Filet sizzling in butter was excellent. Berries in sweet cream for dessert was also great. House Salad to start was overdressed and so so. Side dishes of potatoes with cheese and asparagus were ok but not up to NY steakhouse standards. Service and private room accommodations... More

Ruth Chris has the best steak maybe second only to Morton's. Ifcyou like it rare it is cooked on the outside keeping the steak juicy and the inside rare. The food is excellent. Once you are done you may be looking for that hole in your wallet. Quite pricy everything a la carte and it add s up quick.
