Go for the steak

This was out first time at Ruth's Chris. We had a small filet with shrimp and it was delicious, (we all agreed). Service was concerned and efficient. The mashed and creamed spinach were perfect accompanyments. We hppened to be there during Happy Hour at the bar and saw a crowded bar with... read more

Never have been disappointed in the Ruth's Chris brand and the Princeton location is no exception. Great service, perfect steak, my favorite wine - what more can you ask for!

Ruth's Chris is the best steak house in the area. Top notch selections with excellent service. Parking is convenient. I recommend a booth if you are celebrating an anniversary or a romantic development. My own preference runs to the rib steak with the bone in and the garlic mashed potatoes.

I recently discovered that RC's has a bar menu with discounted prices from 4-7 pm. I had a very nice burger cooked medium-rare, just as I had ordered it. Most places cook burgers at least medium, but not this place. Burger and fries for $8; a real bargain.

My wife and I haven't been to this Ruths Chris in quite sometime but decided to go last Saturday. We both got steak (filet) with side orders of Lobster Mac & cheese and mashed potatoes. The steak was cooked perfectly and the familiar 500 degree sizzle was evident. The Lob and Cheese side dish was good but they need to... More

When comparing to other high end expensive fine dining steak houses the beef did not live up to my expectations. Our stakes were prepared correctly and were flavorful but were a bit gristly. Our server and his assistant were wonderful.

Food was excellent and properly prepared. Setting was delightful. Server was well below par. He was curt, lacking finesse and inattentive. He was inept at taking our order. When he then brought out the wrong food, he blamed one of our party. We graciously took the wrong order, but he then sent hot grease on my partner's arm as he... More

Revisited Ruth's Chris for a friend's birthday. Management overheard us (6 of us) talking and sprinkled birthday glitter on the table. We had the prix fixe dinners: two had salmon, the rest ordered steaks. Each came with any salad, vegetable and a dessert. I substituted their fabulous sweet potato casserole for an additional $2. This easily could have fed 2-3... More

My wife and I went Friday night, and were unimpressed. Have visited many great steakhouses(Peter Luger, Keens, Berns) etc.. Capital Grill seems to be the most consistant of the high end chain steakhouses. Service was godd, not great at Ruths Chris, limited bread offering on the table, and small portion of butter for the four of us...Requested steak without the... More

We were warmly greeted & made to feel welcome. But, then, things went downhill fast. SERVICE was faulty. We waited a l-o-n-g time for our server to take our drink order. And, MANY times, throughout our meal, we had to ask the busboy to get our waiter for us. For instance, when our salads arrived w/o dressing. And, when our... More
