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.

A special treat

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... read 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.

I go there every week for over 10 years. The service here is absolutely fantastic. The atmosphere is perfect for either a date or a group celebration. Parking is ample, and prices are fair. My favorite is Pad Thai, Thai style, Som Tum, Spring Rolls, Shrimp Tempura, Pad See-Ewe, Veggie Fried Rice, Pineapple Fried Rice, Mussels…YUM YUM!!!

Having lived in New Orleans and having a wife from there, we are familiar w and love Ruth Chris. This branch by Southpark is a classic Ruth Chris. This is a first class restaurant in every aspect. They call you by name, cater to you in every way, and serve high quality food. Nothing on their menu is bad. It... More

I used to work at Ruth Chris in my early 20's. Let me break down for you why you should eat here over any other steakhouse. 1. It's consistent. Every Ruth Chris gives me the same Prime Beef Filet or Ribeye whether I am in Charlotte or Hawaii. It never changes and its always perfect! 2. If you have not... More

The place was packed, which is always a good sign, and the food was awesome as expected!! The steaks were cooked to perfection and the spicy lobster was amazing.

We had a fantastic experience at this restaurant. Last minute booking on a Friday night on open table. We arrived right at our scheduled reservation, the valet was prompt, the hostess timely and friendly. We were seated middle of the restaurant and given Aaron as our waiter. He was a true master of his craft. I dine at Five star... More
