My wife and I journey into Boston to Ruth’s Chris Steak House to celebrate our wedding anniversary every year and this year was just as special as always. They always give us a great table this year covered with rose pedals. The meal was outstanding as always and we particularly enjoy the hash brown potato special. The staff from the... More

We have been here a few times - each time the steaks and sides were outstanding. Located in the Boston City Hall and situated in the heart of the historic district- the restaurant presents a great atmosphere. We arrived without reservations - and had dinner at the bar. Service was superb and the food was simply as good as it... More

We stopped in for an early dinner. We sat at the bar and was told there were specials from 4:30-6:30. There was a few apps and several choices. I ordered a burger for $8.00 and my wife ordered a steak salad also $8.00. Both were excellent. The room is very nice and service great.

I reviewed this restaurant back in 2013 but rather than write it off we decided to give it another go... The service was much better - Tony was very friendly and helpful. The food was very good. Both my husband and I had steaks and a couple of extra prawns. The steaks are served on very hot plates so the... More

Best dinner! We had the porterhouse for two and I cut it with a fork! Service was amazing! The building is great- old City Hall. The sides of mashed potatoes and asparagus were delicious.

The food was great, steak was served on a small side dish which we thought was strange. The dining room we were seated in was on the small size and got very warm. Décor was boring. Waiter David was happy and nice.

Excellent restaurant! Went for Christmas Eve lunch with my husband, mother-in-law and 3 kids (aged 13 - 21). Everyone loved it. The food was superb and the historic building with views of the Parker House, King's Chapel and Old Granary Burial Grounds really added to the experience. Do not miss the loaded hash browns!

This was my first visit to a Ruth's Chris Steakhouse and I will definitely be going back. It's expensive, but worth every penny! A great wine selection along with prompt and friendly service add to my high level of satisfaction. My filet was perfect and the sides of mushrooms and sweet potato casserole were unreal. Definitely try this place!

Came in to the bar for drinks and whilst the service was good and the drinks were nice we just found it overpriced for what it was.
