Always Great Steaks

Ruths Chris can always be counted on for great steaks, good service, and a relaxing atmosphere. Much better than comparable chain steak houses.

Way more money then is necessary. 12 for a small plate of mashed potatoes. C'mon. I cook at home. I will buy and prepare you a steak from whole foods that will blow this place away. And would be a third of the price. Everything we ordered was prepared perfectly and service was excellent.

The surf and turf was delicious. Very upscale restaurant featuring an a la cart menu. Would be good for a birthday or anniversary dinner.

The restaurant itself is beautiful and ornate. However, the staff is way below what a restaurant of this caliber should employ. The greeter should take a much needed social skills class. The wait staff was a duke's mixture. The head waiter came off as superficial by trying to

As expected, the steaks are nearly life-changing, the service is over-the-top, the setting is lush and luxurious. Ruth's has a well-earned reputation for excellence and goes beyond merely having a meal and becomes a culinary experience not to be missed.

My wife and I were blessed to have Liz as our professional waiter. We were made to feel welcome and special. We enjoyed Poterhouse for two along with some amazing cocktails and appertizers. Dessert was amazing. We have been turned on to Ruth's Chris Steak House and will go back to a local restaurant near where we love. Keep up... More

The atmosphere at the Philadelphia location leaves alot to be desired. When you're paying that much for admittedly great food, you expect better lighting and surroundings. The restaurant occupies what had been the mail room for a large office building back when, and that is exactly the feeling you get while dining there...you're in the mail room! To be fair... More

If you have never been to a Ruth Chris Steak House, I don't know what you're waiting for. I have never had a bad meal here. In fact, I frequently moan over my meal. The food is served on plates heated to 500 degrees to keep it hot (they tell you not to touch, trust me, I have been the... More

We made a last minute decision to fine here after seeing a show across the street at the Wilma Theater. We arrived at 9:20pm. I am hoping that the late arrival is why the food was sub-par. Both steaks were over-cooked. Mine was significantly over-cooked. The broccoli au gratin was mushy and unimpressive. I expected much better food for the... More
