We began an annual Christmas season tradition of going here for dinner, and we look forward to it every year. My kids are older teens and they each get to choose a "share" food, which works out fine. We are all pleased with our varying selections of sides and the main entree.

Wow. This place is incredible. A little pricey at first glance, but worth it. I think for one person, a filet steak, fries and a cocktail came to $80. But as I said, the steak was unquestionably the best steak I've ever had in my life. It was almost like butter. And MASSIVE. Alot of times I find you order... More

I had never been to Philly before so on my way home to Wisconsin as I was driving I chose Philly as a stop for a nice dinner. Got into the center of town around 5:30 p.m. and found a place to park and was talking to a friend and they informed me of the steakhouse as of one of... More

This lively spot is often very crowded and it is difficult to get seats at the bar. Fortunately two seats at the bar were available rather quickly, we sat down. Within a few minutes we were asked to move to accommodate a larger party of regulars. There is a large protrusion from the underside of bar, be careful not to... More

It could not be located better- across the street from Wilma theater, next to the Kimmel Center of the Performing Arts and The Academy of Music and conveniently on the Avenue of Arts. Friendly warm interior and good steak dinners. The service is attentive and as for a "chain restaurant" they try. I just remember them giving us yet better... More

I have eaten at Ruth Chris in a few others cities and I found this one to be more limited in selection than the others. They lacked the versatility to cater to the individual customer as well. The menu was short and lacked variety. The bar was chaotic and crowded and not relaxed because unlike other Ruth Chris they only... More

I have been to locations in King of Prussia, D.C., VA, Destin, and Chicago while this service was excellent the quality of meal was different. I had the 11 oz which was overcooked. The sweet potato casserole was more crunch than sweet potato. My colleague had the salmon which was definitely overcooked. We chose to forgo dessert based on the... More

First let me say this was my favorite restaurant. Signature appetizer barbecue shrimp was always a standard and any steak on the menu was great and I've had them all. Even the side dishes were the best. But on this visit I could tell something was wrong, so much so that I had the host come to my table and... More
