Welcome to Ruth's Chris Steak House. As founder Ruth Fertel used to say, "If you've ever had a filet this good, welcome back." We take steak seriously, but we're also serious about making sure you have a good time. So you won't find the stodgy, uptight attitude you might find at other steak houses. Our SouthPark location, created in the classic Southern style, features a spacious dining room and private dining areas. Surrounded by dark hardwoods and artisan tiling, you'll feel as if you're back in New Orleans. All beef is USDA Prime, prepared in 1800 degree broilers and served on 500 degree plates, and all accoutrements inspired by Ruth's New Orleans heritage. Let us know of any specific requests for an evening with that special someone, and we'll take care of the details. Life's too short to eat anywhere else.

First time I've ever had anything less than great to say about any Ruth's Chris location - we've been here before, but this time we weren't impressed. 4 Steaks ordered, ranging from rare to medium well - All 4 came out well done. All 4 of us had empty drink glasses in front of us and had to wait for... More

Have eaten here many times and have never left disappointed. The steak is always cooked to perfection and the butter on top can't be beat. Great selection of wine to go with your meal. Always have to finish with the creme brulee. The staff always treat you like royalty. The price is comparative to other high end steakhouses.

To me, a good steak house provides three standards: A good steak, great service and a great atmosphere. And I eat at a lot of them here in the Southeast. So we decided to take our family here for our annual Christmas steak dinner and came away disappointed. We were sat in a side room reserved for large parties and... More

This was my second visit to Ruth's Chris. The first was in Raleigh, NC. In Raleigh they treated you like royalty. Walked us to our table, unfolded our napkin for us and placed it on our lap....all while explaining the menu and specials to us. It was oir anniversary so they had rose petals on our table and a complimentary... More

This was our first trip to this Ruth's Chris location, and on a busy Saturday night after waiting in a hot crowded bar for 20 minutes past our 7:30 reservation we were seated in a very attractive large dining room. The Spicy Lobster and the Crabtini appetizers were good, as were the petite fillets, The asparagus was very thin and... More

This was our second time out for Charlotte Restaurant week. We had reservations for 6 PM on Saturday. We thought there wouldn't be a delay getting us seated like the run of the mill steak houses, but there was. Hard to believe people standing in line waiting for a $30 steak. I guess Restaurant Week brings them out. Once we... More

Ruth's Chris is still about as good as it gets when it comes to a robust dinner experience for special business or personal occasions. Sure, it is a chain. However, the standards for ambiance, service, and food are exceptionally high. In many ways, it is the Ritz-Carlton of steak houses in my opinion. Pricey? Yes. Interested in turning a meal... More

I am not a steak lover so I had avoided this restaurant. However, they have dishes to die for. Love, love, love their food.

Normally a great experience here but they were busy and it seemed that we were there at the end of the busy time and all the wait staff were ready to break. Many of them outside smoking when we got in our car. I expect more out of this restaurant when paying over $150 for 2.
