We recently had a graduation lunch for our daughter at the restaurant and it was a great time. The best part was that the Sales Manager, Meaghan, suggested that we use one of their private rooms and it turned out to be a fantastic idea. The restaurant itself is located in the heart of the financial district but actually located... More

We stopped here by accident on our way to the T station before a Red Sox game. I can't think of a finer pre game happy hour than eating overpriced, bad food at the ballpark. great drinks and the quality and menu as our local Ruths Chris. The lobster sizzle is the best deal during happy hour!

A friend of mine and I went there during the week for dinner. I had never had a steak before and I knew my first time should be somewhere nice. And I was right. The steak is to die four. We had a four course meal and everything was excellent. Even the bread pudding at the end was amazing. Go... More

I have never had a full meal at Ruth's Chris, but my wife and I often visit the bar which is very attractive and comfortable. The drinks and wine are excellent and there is a very good bar menu. The service is always first class. This is one of my favorite bars in Boston.

Amazing steak! Worth the money. Great atmosphere and attentive staff. It was a perfect date night and they were very flexible with my food intolerances (gluten).
