We have dined at this restaurant twice. It's a good place for special occasions. The setting is somewhat formal, but the atmosphere is homey. Very friendly service. The seared scallops are my favorite. It's a little expensive, but you get what you pay for.

I dined with several friends at the Ruth's Chris Steak House located at Pier V. I cannot complain about the food or service, they were outstanding. All of the food was delicious; from the salads and soups, to the steaks, sides, and dessert. Our server was courteous and we were not rushed through dinner. What makes the steaks so special... More

The steak here is really good and the portions large but the bill is very pricey. If you like cigars, they have a cabana club upstairs where you can smoke. I personally am not into that. It is a nice place to go to dinner for a special occasion. However, if you are looking for steak in Baltimore, use that... More

And we always have a splendid meal the night before the appointment, in this case surgery. Well Hopkins is first rate, and for this trip the Marriott with a harbor view from... More

We arrived at Ruth's Chris for Father's Day, only to learn that our reservation was actually for a different Ruth's Chris in the city (Water St location). No matter, they quickly accommodated our party of 7. Our waiter was knowledgeable, patient, prompt, and accommodating. Everyone rated their food highly from appetizer to entrée to sides to desserts. Our table was... More

We have visited this establishment many times when visiting relatives from the Uk. I have never been disappointed on any of our visits, the level of services received from start to finish is first class. The food, well I cannot praise the steaks enough I have never tasted a better steak since. If you go try and get Scott as... More

Our group of 13 had dinner at Ruth Chris Steak House in Baltimore on Water Street. Because of such a large group I sent an email to the General Manager Dave Derewicz in advance to let him know the size of our party and that we were looking forward to their same high level of service and quality food as...

Our business group had a cocktail party in the lobby of the Pier 5 hotel & then dined at Ruth Chris at the entrance to the hotel. Ruth Chris is always great, but the Pier 5 really put on a show! They made such a fantastic, fun party & served spectacular hors d'oeuvers. Good job, Pier 5!!

This place has the reputation for opulent elegance and some of the best steaks that money can buy! The steaks that I order (T-bone & filet) are aged to perfection and will melt in your mouth like butter and the salads and side dishes are very good. The staff will treat you like royalty! We have never been disappointed and... More
