Great Happy Hour & Steaks!

The happy hour here is great and reasonably priced. I love the steak sliders and spicy lobster. The steaks are great here and so is the creamed spinach. The lobster tail is great but on multiple occasions I have ordered the full lobster which was under cooked. They have a great wine list... read more

In town for business and it was exactly what I was looking for a Ruth Chris. The bartender was very attentive and the food was cooked perfect.

I was looking forward to dining here but was disappointed. We were seated shortly after arriving but it took rather a long while for a waiter to show up. Eventually we got our drink orders in but it took a while to get the drinks. When salads arrived for everyone at our table I was hoping that things would get... More

The Petite Rib-eye (medium) was the toughest rib-eye I have ever had! Even the steak knife struggled to cut threw the sinew. The steak served with the surf and turf lacked flavor. The bill was wrong, too, as it included a charge for four decaf Cappucino coffees but only one was served. Service was good, but then it was a... More

Very consistent. I have never had a bad meal here. The five of us were seated at a round table and had two waiters. Albeit expensive, it was very nice. I would absolutely return here in a heartbeat.

Went for happy hour with friends and tried a lot of things on the happy hour menu. The best was a tie between the steak sandwich (delicious steak and crispy bread with béarnaise sauce) and the burger (very juicy). Also liked the tuna app a lot, the spicy lobster was just ok. Will definitely go back to try the few... More

Ruth's Chris is one of our favorite restaurants, and we have bounced around to different ones in the area and the Fairfax Ruth's Chris is still our favorite. We often avoid going here on "peak" hours so as to not clash with the crowd, and the staff is always so attentive and the food comes out in a timely manner.... More

The food is very good but at what price? To be honest - I can go to Costco, or Wegmans, or any local butcher and get a good cut of meat, and cook it myself and it will taste just as good. So when I go out for a treat, I don't mind spending good money for good service, and... More

We used to go here far more often than we do these days. The competition is out there and choices abound - but RC remains an expensive choice sometimes it doesn't seem worth the value. We've had both good-bad food & service experiences here. On one night in particular 3 of 6 steaks were sent back and were so undercooked... More

Had our 2nd Valentine's Day dinner at the Ruth's Chris in Fairfax and the meal was delicious. The filet with 2 lobster tails was reasonably priced and cook to perfection. We brought our wine and that made the evening special on a very snowy night.
