On valentines day, i was third wheeling with my parents and went to this restaurant not knowing what to expect. Well, i was not disappointed. When the our lovely waitress Liz, brought my steak out sizzling and juicy as ever, it made my month. I will return indeed!

This was the 3rd time that I have had an amazing meal at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. Each time that I have come my husband and feel like the experience gets better and better. Although it maybe a high price tag for some, I've come to realize that you get what you pay for. The quality is top notch.

Returned to Ruth's Christ Steak House on Water Street (Baltimore) last evening and we were not disappointed. They have nailed down a consistently well-done paradigm of the great American steak house. Predictably well done steaks and chops; great sides to share and excellent and attentive service. The wine list was remarkably good and I was pleased to see the pricing... More

Our experience here was wonderful from the relaxed atmosphere to the excellent meal. However, it was so pricey that I wouldn't return. I don't mind paying for a nite out, but quite frankly, it just wasn't worth it. Again, the food and ambiance was excellent, just not that excellent.

I visited the restaurant on 9/1, the last day stayed in Baltimore. Trying to treat myself the best and went up here though it's lonely. The mood was so warm and people seem to celebrate something special on each table. The waiter was helpful. The remarkable environment attracted me a lot and prawns were fresh with the juicy steak.

Ruth's Chris at Baltimore inner harbor was nicely decorated for the holidays. The staff were upbeat as customers crowded in on the last day of 2014. We were seated on time for our reservation and Mel provided exceptional customer service while servicing large tables next to us. Overall we enjoyed a savory Ruth's Chris steak night dinner impressed that the... More

Made a reservation months ago for 8:30. Arrived at 8:15. Told the wait would be 1 to 1 1/2 hours! Why oh why do you accept reservations and not honor them. An elderly couple with a 7:30 reservation was finally seated at 9:10. That is simply unprofessional and unacceptable for the pleasure of paying them $50 for a steak. Will... More
