Never Disappointed at Ruth's Chris

This location has an excellent outdoor dining area. The atmosphere is wonderful overlooking the inner harbor. This Ruth's Chris offers nice price discounts on numerous drinks and appetizers during happy hour. I tasted quite a few of them and all were excellent. As far as their steaks go I have... read more

Great service! Clean. Had crab cakes and barbecue shrimp. Consistently good every time! Every time I go to Baltimore I must stop. Outdoor seating is a nice advantage.

What can I say, Ruth Chris is one of my favorite restaurants to go to. We always had a wonderful meal with outstanding service. Their appetizers, salads, entrees (even the lamb and seafood), side dishes and deserts are great. Tried multiple things and have never been disappointed. The staff has always been friendly, outgoing and efficient plus the manager does... More

We go to our local Ruth's Chris (Richmond) on special occasions so went to the Baltimore one when we visited the area. The portions are much bigger and the quality is superb. It is a bit more expensive, but it's worth it if you want a treat. Wondeful experience, great atmosphere - thoroughly recommended.

My wife and I were guests of friends at the Water St. restaurant on a recent Saturday eve. Be careful when making reservations or arranging to meet others as there are 2 Ruth's Chris very close to one another in downtown Baltimore. One is on Eastern Ave. at the Inner Harbor and the Water St. location is only a couple... More

8/28/2013 I love how everyone complains about the prices at any R.C.'s and I DO understand that it can be quite expensive (esp. if you drink as well). But this is a place you go for special occasions (in my opinion), and it could NOT be more worth it. I have to agree with Jacqueline B.'s review completely. I mean... More
