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.

I took my wife to Ruth's Chris (South Park) for her birthday dinner. We arrived early and there was only one other occupied table in our section so things started out well but quickly went downhill. As soon as there were three or four tables of patrons including 2 groups of 4 and 6 the servers were overwhelmed. Waiting 10... More

We always enjoy Ruth's Chris but this visit in April 2015 was the best ever. It was our anniversary and the staff went out of their way to make it a very special time. My wife had the big filet and I had the ribeye. They are always served on a 500 degree plate which I love. I even got... More

Ive heard so much about this place. My expectations may have been a little hightened. The steak was ok. It was tender but could have used a bit more seasoning. The entrée was plentiful. The ambience was nice.

We visited Ruth Chris Southpark over the weekend. We had 6pm reservations and were seated right away with no wait. Had a lovely table for two that was in a separate dining room. This was not my first time visiting Ruth Chris, but there is a difference between this location and the Uptown location. I prefer this one better. The... More

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
